About Steel Window Fittings

Steel Window Fittings are a successful small business. They supply specialist fittings and hardware which is available to Window Manufacturers, Restorers, Associations, Public and Private Buildings along with homeowners. They currently have 9 members of staff and recent approached us to help with their latest recruitment requirement.

How they usually recruit

Steel Window Fittings have previously used traditional recruitment agencies to help them find staff for their business. Up until recently they were not aware of That Recruit or about how our service operates. Steel Window Fittings recently had a requirement for a Product Processor to join their team in Telford.

What does a Product Processor do?

This role is all about the safe care & processing of products from receipt at the company premises, storage and despatch of orders. Steel Window Fittings were looking for a team player, with excellent communication skills who ideally had previous experience of working in a manufacturing or distribution environment.

Why did Steel Window Fittings use

Della is the Office Manager at Steel Window Fittings and she is also responsible for Operations. She was managing this piece of recruitment and she decided our service would give her more insight of all interested candidates along with greater control of the overall recruitment process. She was also attracted by the low cost enabling her to try a different channel without a costly revenue risk.

How did the campaign work?

The campaign worked well. In total it received 19 quality applications.

Did Steel Window Fittings find the employee they were looking for?

Even better! Steel Window Fittings hired two candidates from the response. One of the candidates has already started on site and is doing a fantastic job! The second candidate is doing a combined flexible role as they had the skills and additional experience to fulfill another role.

Any tips?

Throughout the campaign Della conducted a very successful and proactive response program for all applicants. Della emailed all candidates thanking them for their CV and gave quick feedback to all candidates – successful or not. When the job was successfully filled Steel Window Fittings contacted us to remove the advert from the job boards.

What did Steel Window Fittings think of the quality of applicants?

Della has reported that in her opinion the calibre of candidates received was at a much higher level than she has previously received from traditional recruitment agencies. This feedback is common from clients and is as a result of our huge level of coverage. We don’t work of a database, we don’t restrict ourselves to the job boards that every other agency uses – we advertise almost everywhere.

Would Steel Window Fittings use That Recruit again?

We loved hearing from Della that Steel Window Fittings would be happy to use us again and recommend us to colleagues and friends!

Thank you Steel Window Fittings for your business, we look forward to working with you again.

What our clients say about us

We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
