Last month we started our ‘Meet The Team’ piece where we take a look at employees from First Call Contract Services. The commitment and hard work of our employees allows us maintain our recruitment service. This month we would like to introduce you to James Druitt who works as the branch manager of our Staines office.
James first came to First Call looking for temporary work in between jobs as a consultant in June 2012. With a background in insurance and print media, the world of recruitment was new to James but the busy environment within the branch had similarities with the print industry, and so he quickly settled in.
In January 2013 James was made Branch Controller and began to look at improvements needed in the branch, its client base and started to make plans for the future of the Staines branch.
Due to the offices’ locality it largely deals with a certain industry as James explains: “We are heavily focused on the aviation sector, largely due to our proximity to Heathrow, and over 50% of our business is in some way connected to the airport.” The team have achieved major milestones recently which further shows the commitment and quality to the work for clients that has been carried out. James continues, “In the last year we have become a signatory at the Heathrow ID centre, which means that we are now able to apply for airside security passes, and so can supply staff that are fully cleared to work within the airport.”
Outside the aviation sector James and his team continue to provide First Call Contract Services with an award winning recruitment management service across multiple industries. “The branch is fortunate to have a wide and varied portfolio of clients however, encompassing food production, distribution, transport, municipal services, recycling and postal services.”
He has also set his branch goals high, “I am lucky to have an experienced team here who know what needs to be done to ensure that we remain an integral partner to our clients. Our aim is to become the most profitable branch in the network by the end of the year, and the entire team are working hard to make this become a reality.”
Feel free to get in touch with James and his team now at Staines on either 01784 464464 for vacancy details, or call 08707 666 070 for sales. You can also find James on LinkedIn here.
