Those employers looking to take on new staff now know more clearly than ever EXACTLY the kind of person they want….

Mat Gibson Managing Director of Chase Taylor Recruitment tells us that recruitment briefs are now more detailed than ever before as employers develop a greater understanding of exactly the person they are trying to recruit.

“The days of ‘get me a BDM in the South West to sell fascias and soffits’ are well and truly gone. The brief now is more likely to be ‘get me a BDM in the South West with a minimum of five years experience selling fascias and soffits specifically to building plastics depots; a person who can show a proven track record and can demonstrate year on year sales growth over that period. They also need to be able to put together a five year plan for this business which meets the growth expectations of our investors, and be able to offer market insight into what new products will revolutionise the sector in the future’”.


Employers are not willing to take a chance on getting the right person; they want to ensure that they do


“Okay, that might sound a bit over the top, but the point is this; employers looking to start recruiting again as we leave the recession behind us are not willing to take a chance on getting the right person. They want to ensure that they get the right person, and will look into the finest detail as a part of the recruitment process. Furthermore, they now have a much clearer picture of exactly who that person needs to be”.


“This is driven out of having worked tirelessly over the past five years with fewer staff and with tighter budgetary controls than ever to stave off the worst ravages of the most dramatic business downturn most of us have ever experienced. Any expenditure and commitment to new staff therefore needs to offer a guaranteed return on that investment”.


As an industry specific recruiter we welcome this challenge


“For us a major recruiter in the window and door industry these new demands brings with them new challenges; not only are we at Chase Taylor enthusiastic about rising to these challenges, but we know with the robust and detailed candidate selection processes we utilise, that we can meet them head on. Our candidates database and our detailed knowledge of the industry and the people within it leave us second to none”.


“So if you are an employer thinking about new personnel, get in touch; we have a clear understanding of what you are looking to achieve, and an energetic, industry focussed team who will deliver for you”.


Don’t leave anything to CHANCE, let us find EXACTLY the person you want for your business.
