We are pleased to announce the launch of our new division focused exclusively on interim and contract recruitment services.
The interim team will be managed by Mark Nesbit, sourcing high calibre, managerial level interim professionals and specialists in contract work in the Procurement, Buying and Merchandising, Supply Chain and Logistics sectors. The expansion of the interim and contract department reflects our year-on-year growth and improved performance in our markets.
It is expected that this service will drive future growth as the Recruitment and Employment Federation’s (REC) annual report states that £28.5 billion was achieved through temporary and contract business in 2014-2015, demonstrating a shift in the market. This change in the market provides a solution to businesses requiring short-term strategic skills due to advancements in technology changing operational models and traditional processes.
Wayne Brophy, managing director of Cast UK, considers technology to be a driver of efficiency, having introduced a new cloud-based system for clients and contractors to approve and submit timesheets online. We have also recently introduced cloud software that allows us to set up self-bill agreements with our contractors, creating automatically generated invoices on the contractors’ behalf, thus streamlining our processes.
Commenting on the expansion, Wayne Brophy said, “Business is transient and if you stay still you risk falling behind. Our new division has been set up to meet a clear need in the market as organisations are increasingly open to alternative resourcing models, recognising this is pivotal to their growth.
“With an experienced team and an appetite for continuous improvement, our industry knowledge and ability to harness emerging technologies for the benefit of our clients and candidates will be key in the year ahead.”
The new division will also source Non-Executive Directors (NED’s) for SME’s, providing professionals with exceptional industry experience and a good cultural fit, to help drive their growth. NED’s have been a huge contributor to our own development at Cast UK and are something Wayne feels passionate about.
