We can’t believe it’s been an entire year since our Preston office launched and what a year it has been! Since doors opened on the 6th of November 2020, our talented team have worked hard to establish themselves as a trusted recruitment partner for businesses across Lancashire. Initially a one-man office in the form of Dave Copsey (Branch Manager), we quickly added new talent to the team in Amy Creswell (Recruitment Resourcer) and Shannon McCreadie (Trainee Resourcer). We haven’t stopped there. This month, a fourth addition will be joining our team as we continue to expand our comprehensive range of recruitment services.

How does Swift Temps Preston add value to our customers?

Calling upon over two decades of combined experience, the Preston office serves companies in the industrial and warehouse sectors across the north-west. Our expertise extends across assembly, production, engineering, fabrication, manufacturing, packaging and driving, enabling us to provide our customers with a fully-integrated recruitment service. Whether our customers have an interim requirement or a full-time vacancy, our experts are well-equipped to support them. This is because although a lot of what we do is based on the supply of temporary staff, many of our clients use our workforce with a view to retaining the employees on a permanent contract following the end of the pre-agreed period. Over the course of the last year, we’ve seen a large number of the temporary workers we’ve placed given contracts and taken on permanently; this is testament to the quality of the candidates we’ve been able to source and provide.

Furthermore, we’ve also become a trusted partner in the provision of talent covering accounts, administrative, commercial and office-based roles. We place a strong focus on customer service at the centre of everything we do and pride ourselves on thoroughly understanding our client’s business. This has been recognised by our customers over the last year; so much so, that we’ve increased our portfolio of new and existing clients, working on some exciting projects in the process.

For us, it’s about providing complete value to our customers across the entire recruitment process. From the very beginning, we’ll meet with them to learn about the role in more detail, understanding their requirements and how it is important for their business. We also provide advice and guidance about how to attract the best talent on the market and the various channels we can use to source the right candidates for the role. Every professional is thoroughly screened prior to CV submission in order to make sure they meet our customer’s criteria, ensuring that those put forward are all suitable for the role. Throughout the process, we’ll also manage interview days, ensure detailed feedback is returned by all parties and provide support and guidance. Our work doesn’t stop there though. Our recruitment consultants also conduct regular after-placement meetings and provide a high-level of aftercare to ensure both parties are happy once employment has begun.

The future 

We’re proud to have played an integral role in the growth of our clients over the last year, helping many to recover or regain market share following the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In the space of 12 months, we’ve onboarded 15 new customers across the industrial and warehousing sectors, helping them to fulfil a range of business-critical requirements. The Preston office has become an integral part of the Swift family and we’re delighted to play our role in helping this great city to continue growing.
