The International arm of Gradu8 recruits executive, commercial and operational people for roles overseas in the Construction Sector: including Contractors, Building Material Producers and Distributors.
With over 50 years of recruiting experience within the team we know better than anyone that in general the reputation of recruitment companies to say the least is not good. There are numerous reasons for this – most are open to debate, but all come under the general banner of unprofessionalism. At Gradu8 we work hard every day to correct this reputation by providing a responsive, understanding, experienced and value for money service – in short we are a professional company with a professional approach to the business of recruitment.
For the client we offer a service which is responsive and realistic – a service aided by our knowledge of how the Construction Sector works, enabling us to network the right people – We are always talking to good people who themselves may not be interested in a move, but may know someone who is !! Overall Gradu8 is a recruitment company which is genuinely interested in its clients and their success – we take pride in our work acting as an extension of our clients’ management team. We genuinely take a great deal of satisfaction from the success our client can gain from recruiting quality people who make the difference. It’s a well worn saying that people are the most important resource of any company – well we at Gradu8 believe it. Above all we offer our clients good value for money.
We know the process of recruiting internationally can be daunting and because of this we offer a truly seamless service involving – candidate search and selection, interviewing, managing candidate feedback, trade and personal referencing for preferred candidates and relocation aid and advice for the successful individual. In short we handle everything on our clients’ behalf until the day the new employee starts work.
For the candidate we seek to provide the same level of understanding and service. If we are interested in our client we must also be interested in our candidate as they go hand in glove. We are not interested in the quick fix, where candidates are provided with a misleading job brief in the hope that they may be persuaded to follow the interview trail without considering whether the role is truly right for them. We agree the type of role that suits the candidates experience and aspirations – we are not magicians if the right job is not there – it’s not there. We meet every candidate selected for interview with the client to ensure they enter the meeting with our client prepared and focussed. We respect the candidate and do our best to offer a level of honesty and integrity – we do not misrepresent a vacancy, we offer feed back at each stage of the process and if a candidate does poorly at an interview, we tell them why. Above all we offer our candidates help, which for a successful candidate means they have an experienced guide through the difficult relocation process including acclimatisation advice, visa application and travel arrangements.
