Proactive Recruitment is a privately owned company which has been successfully delivering your temporary recruitment requirements throughout Scotland’s central belt for over 22 years.

We provide a highly professional service with emphasis placed on both quality and integrity; the vital ingredients in creating our successful client relationships. We have numerous partnerships with some of the biggest and best companies across Scotland and the UK and have positions that are not advertised to the wider market.

We are corporate members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), the governing body for the recruitment industry. Receiving daily updates from the REC advising on issues such like employment law, new government legislation, salary scales and key industry developments, allow Proactive to stay ahead of the game. We are also members of the Federation for Small Businesses (FSB), the UK’s leading organisation seeking fair treatment of small businesses throughout the UK.

We are active members of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA), the government body founded to protect workers from exploitation in agriculture, horticulture, shellfish gathering and food processing and packaging. We achieved our licence in June 2006 and have been compliant in this practice since September 2005 when we invited an external body to examine our procedures. Our unique reference with the GLA is PROA0001 and our certificate can be supplied upon request or by visiting the GLA website.

“We make it our business to understand your business”

It is important that we understand your business and your recruitment requirements from our first point of contact. We like to conduct a site visit where we can meet your key personnel and appraise your needs.

Our highly experienced staff coupled with powerful industry specific software means we can search and select only the best possible candidates' specific to your recruitment requirements.

If we don't have fit within our current database and we are unable to satisfy your requirement immediately then we will disclose our position. If your requirement is less urgent we can conduct a bespoke search and selection campaign. This will include the construction of a suitable advertisement through a selection of media, initial advert response and interviewing, background reference examination and in depth assessment by one of our experienced consultants.

“When we place a candidate, it does not signal the end of our relationship”

Once a candidate is placed we aim to assist you in any way we can. You may require extra candidates at short notice or seek up to the minute employment advice. Whichever the case you can always reach one of our consultants 24 hours a day; 365 days a year. Our office is open from 07.30 until 18:00 hours each weekday. Out with these hours you can contact one of our consultants on 07802 264 905 – our out of office service. This service is highly valued by our current customers and our local consultants provide continuity and peace of mind.

“We place emphasis on remunerating candidates the correct amount and on time”

We manage and payroll all candidates internally in compliance with HMRC regulations. We issue client timesheets for completion in accordance with your specified requirements.
