Riverside Recruitment Solutions

Temporary worker
As well as providing cover for sickness, holidays and peak workloads, temporary and contract workers can be used to carry out special projects requiring specific skills. In addition, where an organisation is unsure  whether an increase in business / work levels will be sustained, temporary placements are ideal for headcount management and budgetary control.

The fee you pay Riverside Recruitment for a temporary worker is made up of the worker’s basic salary plus a percentage, or margin, placed on top of that to cover the agency’s cost.

We are legally bound to pay the minimum wage will make statutory deductions such as National Insurance, PAYE and SSP. The rate you pay will depend largely on the role you are recruiting for, and Riverside Recruitment will work with you explaining market conditions, skills availability and the method by which we will attract and pre-select suitable candidates.

Our basic vision and values have been built on transparency with our clients and offering specifically job-matched candidates to ensure an honest cultural fit.

Temp to perm fees
This solution offers flexibility and the opportunity to trial a candidate within the working environment prior to offering direct employment. 

Initially the worker is on a temporary contract via Riverside Recruitment and then after an agreed period they transfer over to you (our client) for direct employment.

Riverside Recruitment‚Äôs temp to perm fee can vary, depending on the initial period, the nature of the transfer and the relationship with the client. On occasions there is an ‚ÄúExtended Period of Hire‚ÄĚ and in this scenario, the worker continues to be employed by Riverside Recruitment for a pre-determined fixed period of time and after this point they transfer over.

Permanent placement fees
At Riverside Recruitment our permanent solution has been designed so that we manage the recruitment process from start to finish. Our aim, whether recruiting for one or ten positions, is to reduce your cost per hire, reduce the risk involved and to finish the recruitment process
with the best possible candidate for the job.

We have a large database of candidates, both active and passive and as the area’s leading independent agency we have a natural flow of new candidate registrations daily. Our advertising methods include networking, referral, print and online mediums although the latter has become more common and indeed more successful in recent years.

Attitude Quotes

Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.

If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right. Henry Ford

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

A healthy attitude is contagious, but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold.

Anywhere is paradise; it’s up to you.

Attitude is the way you mentally look at the world around you. It is how you view your environment and your future. It is the focus you develop toward life itself.

Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time.

No life is so hard that you can’t make it easier by the way you take it.
