CORPORATE VISION / Issue 9 2018 19 , Scope HR Solutions was originally founded in 2011 by David and PaulaWest bringing with them 35 years of experience within the recruitment sector and a passion for developing a unique offering. Following their success in Corporate Vision’s 2018 Recruitment Elite, Scope HR Solutions Managing Director, DavidWest provides us with a detailed overview of the award-winning firm. From the placement of the first Associate in April of that year, Scope HR Solutions has grown to a payroll in excess of 1200 Associates per week delivering the provision of temporary labour throughout Kent across logistics, manufacturing, horticulture, food preparation and packing sectors. The core values were agreed and so the journey began, not just words but inherent in every aspect of the businesses activities. Sustainable By offering a commercially viable partnership to our clients, supported by a full understanding of their requirements, as well as the matching of the right quantity and quality of associate to the assignment, we deliver sustainability to the partnership substantiated by client retention rates that are the envy of the sector. Candidate selection and engagement is at the start of the process and critical to its delivery in a sector were increasingly the candidate has options, we need to ensure that we are the agency of choice - offering trust, transparency, honesty and security to every candidate ensuring their transition to a Scope HR Solutions Associate is smooth and hassle-free. As a Scope HR Solutions Associate, we offer engagement and support not only in the workplace but also pastorally. A happy associate = a happy client. Compliant Licensed by the GLA and members of ALP with David West being an active council member, we have positioned the business at the forefront of compliance actively engaging in new initiatives ensuring we lead, rather than follow. The business systems and processes are robust underpinned by an internal Audit programme that ensures an environment of continual improvement is achieved. This is because at Scope HR Solutions, an Audit represents an opportunity and is embraced by every colleague. Original In what is an over-crowded sector full of promises, you need to have differentiators that you are able to deliver against, we do! We are in the business of people, whether a client, colleague, associate or candidate by taking the time to fully understand an individuals or organisations goals we can deliver. On day one in any business, an environment of positivity, belief and ambition prevails all too often, which is all too often diminished with time. As such, Scope’s success is based on the scalability of this model to ensure we are as passionate today as we were in 2011 and is demonstrable by 98% client retention from day one. The delivery of colleague development and training programmes, with only one exception, every manager within the business started as an associate, associate support an engagement programmes delivering an average associates length of assignment of 45 weeks. Proud As a business we are proud of everything that we do. Ethical A word all too often used, the diary definition tells us it relates to what is morally right or wrong and of course within the recruitment sector this is very focused on the treatment of the individual. We have all seen the horror stories in the media in a sector were legislation is abundant, fundamentally it starts with a desire to do it right which we have, that is then supported by robust processes and systems 1808CV01 and Internal Audit Programmes to maintain vigilance, most important of all we listen and act. In addition to this, our associates are important, and every aspect of their journey is Audited by Scope – Transport both to the UK and daily, accommodation and clients’ premises. Finally, it is quite simple how Scope HR Solutions offers each candidate a full “end to end solution” which has been tailormade to the individual encompassing accommodation, transport and a full support infrastructure.
