We are thrilled to announce that HSQ Recruitment has been named a finalist in the prestigious Recruitment Solutions Provider of the Year category at this year's New Civil Engineer Awards. This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to delivering innovative and tailored recruitment solutions to meet the unique needs of our clients in the construction and civil engineering industry.
At HSQ Recruitment, we understand that providing exceptional recruitment services goes beyond simply filling positions. Our team of experts works closely with clients to gain a deep understanding of their specific challenges, priorities, and talent requirements. Armed with this valuable insight, we develop customised recruitment strategies and initiatives that attract, recruit, and retain top industry talent.
The construction and civil engineering industry is faced with significant challenges such as skills gaps, labour shortages, and the pressing need for sustainability. As a leading recruitment agency, HSQ Recruitment has been at the forefront of labour supply for major projects including HS2, Hinkley Point C, and Euston and Battersea Power Station Redevelopments, among others. We have helped our clients navigate these challenges by providing them with the right talent at the right time.
However, we recognise that our responsibility goes beyond fulfilling immediate staffing needs. Climate change is an urgent issue that demands immediate action. Understanding the crucial role that the civil engineering industry plays in mitigating the environmental impact of infrastructure, we have made sustainability a core part of our values and operations.
As part of our 2023 sustainability initiative, we have pledged to plant trees for each candidate placement and every hire made by our clients. This endeavour helps offset carbon emissions generated by projects and commuting, thereby contributing to a greener and more sustainable future. Through our climate partner ecologi, we have already funded the planting of 820 trees, offsetting a remarkable 54.3 tonnes of carbon emissions. Our commitment to sustainability has not only helped our clients attract talent but has also allowed them to tackle skill shortages while aligning with their own sustainability goals.
We take great pride in actively providing information and guidance to our clients, enabling them to meet project demands while maintaining their sustainability objectives. By investing in our client's success and promoting them as employers of choice, we aim to support the industry's ongoing skills shortages and labour supply challenges.
Don't just take our word for it. Here's what one of our candidates, Paula Gomez, Head of Engineering at Aggregate Industries, had to say about their experience with HSQ Recruitment: "Whenever deciding to change careers or looking for their first job, people experience a stressful state of mind and a fundamental change of existing work circumstances. In my experience, HSQ Recruitment became the cooperative partner that kept the communication flow with the right amount of sensitivity to make me feel safe and supported along the process. Thank you to the HSQ team. Congratulations on your excellent professionalism and remarkable human skills."
