Utilising Our 'Trial Start' To Ensure Suitable Trades & Labour Staff

29th January 2024


Finding reliable, competent, and suitable staff is a crucial component of project success. Our 'trial start' option, gives you a chance to evaluate new recruits on site during a trial on their first day, creating an opportunity to assess their skills and fit, with no obligation to pay a penny if for any reason they don’t fit the bill. Here are a list of the reasons this is such an attractive hiring option for your company.

1. Practical Skill Verification

The nature of construction work requires skills that are best assessed in a hands-on environment. Through a trial start, employers can directly observe candidates performing tasks and skills on-site, ensuring their skills are in line with the specific job requirements.

2. Evaluating Site Adaptability

Adaptability to new construction sites is a crucial trait in the industry. A trial start provides a window for a candidate to demonstrate how well they can adjust to a new construction environment, adhere to safety standards, and fit in with the team. This on-site assessment is key in construction staffing, as it significantly impacts project efficiency, cohesion and safety.

3. Worker Satisfaction

From a staff perspective, experiencing the actual work environment through a trial start can be an insightful opportunity to assess their own fit with the project in question. This offers a realistic preview of the job, avoiding any surprises down the line and ensures a more cohesive working relationship and likelihood of a good match for the team.

4. Feedback and Improvement in Hiring Practices

From our perspective, immediate feedback through a trial start is beneficial for continuous improvement in the staffing service we’re providing. If for any reason a candidate we send to site isn’t suitable, it allows us to replace them quickly and efficiently for you free of charge, while effectively amending the remit for future recruits too.
