How we helped a market leader in train control systems find the right recruitment specialist.



The number of specialist signalling candidates who have joined as a customer thanks to dedicated recruitment activity.

How we saw things differently

How we helped a market leader in train control solutions find the right recruitment specialist for them by providing hard-to-fill signalling professionals UK wide. We nurtured a relationship with the customer and provided a specific solution for them, we never assume that one size fits all. Having won a tender to run a restricted Managed Service, we are now their highest performing supplier and valued partner.


Casting the recruitment net far and wide was essential in being able to attract suitable talent to our customer; reliance on existing channels to market would not have been enough.

Through our experience in running effective search and selection campaigns for talent, we designed a comprehensive solution that included the following:

  • Specialist team led by an experienced Resourcing Partner
  • Creation of bespoke client microsite
  • UK based candidate attraction roadshow
  • Management of niche tertiary supply chain
Project Planner - Infrastructure & Built Environment From putting the application/CV forward, through interview process and finally stepping into the position, communication was established at a very early stage and was very consistent throughout. I could not have asked for more and my enquiries were always responded to in 24 hours or less. I would not hesitate in recommending the team. Project Planner - Infrastructure & Built Environment

Building a solution that works

We provided a timely solution to our partner in the form of 18 signalling resources and have continually added value to our relationship with the customer since. In the last 24 months we have collaborated in a UK wide candidate attraction campaign, hosted specialist 'Signalling Design' open days, produced a bespoke client microsite and provided a resource solution for our customer's new office in Wales.
