Shropshire Council.

About Shropshire Council.

Shropshire Council is the Local Authority of Shropshire, in England, comprising the ceremonial county of Shropshire (except Telford and Wrekin).

It is a unitary authority, having the powers of a non-metropolitan county and district council combined.

The Challenge.

Due to a lack of applications for the positions they had advertised, Shropshire Council were struggling to recruit drivers, drainage workers and Highway Maintenance Technicians. 

By not having an adequate number of employees, existing employees were making up the shortfall and working longer hours. In some instances, public services could have been considerably delayed.  

Subsequently, Shropshire Council contacted us to help them recruit 3 candidates within a two week period.

The Solution.

After successfully delivering on multiple projects across the private and public sector, Senior Consultant, Sam Stanton, thoroughly understood the requirements and was well equipped to tackle the challenge. 

Through traditional methods of CV searching and collecting applications through our website which is optimised to attract candidates in this field, Sam was able to locate many qualified and experienced candidates.

Sam also reached out to this extensive network of tradespeople to get referrals of candidates who were potentially interested in a new fixed term contract. 

Despite the council originally looking to recruit 3 candidates, they eventually hired 5 of the candidates which Sam submitted because the quality was of such a high standard. 

These recruits enabled Shropshire Council to resume the provision of public services in a prompt and efficient manner. 

There is a strong focus on prompt personal attention and regular contact about prospective recruitment needs.

What Shropshire Council Said.

“Through Spencer Clarke Group sending us prospective candidates, we have been able to build a strong team of workers. 

Our consultant, Sam Stanton, has a good understanding of the candidates we have been looking to recruit. He has always been helpful, professional and dealt with any issues promptly. 

Compared to other agencies, there is a strong focus on prompt personal attention and regular contact about prospective recruitment needs.”
