Temporary Recruitment

When speed is key and you have a vacancy that needs filling immediately, we can have CV’s across to you in minutes. You can rest assured that quality of the candidates won't be compromised, all vetting checks will be undertaken before the applications reach your desk.


Head Hunting

When candidates are extremely scarce, in construction for example, then a head-hunting approach is ideal, this method directly targets the people who if interested in the vacancy will be of interest to you.

We can also carry out a full range of tests to add further credibility to each candidate, such as personality profiling, critical reasoning, verbal/numerical reasoning and advanced managerial.

Knowing what you want, setting targets and then achieving your goals is not impossible but can be totally challenging and exhausting, especially when juggling a number of task. When my Head of Faculty introduced me to Provision, I felt they might be another agency ready to bombard my emails with a list of lecturers with whom they had very little relations, if any! I am happy to say, Provision stand in a class of their own: 1st, they met with me in person to find out more about me and my needs 2nd, they came prepared having collated information from conversations we had pre-visit; presenting me with candidates they personally headhunted for the position I needed to be filled 3rd, they followed through after the position was offered, wanting to ensure I was happy as well as update me on details which would support the transition for the newly appointed candidate, electrical lecturer I wouldn't think twice about using Provision again; straight forward, cost effective and professional service. What more could one ask for! Viviene Bish-Bedeau Senior Curriculum Manager (Construction & Engineering) - Tower Hamlets College
As part of our restructuring programme within the Construction section we used Provision to recruit two posts, the caliber of the candidates was very good and it was helpful that arrangements were made for the interviews in a fast and efficient manner. Lorraine Styles - Head of Learning Gloucestershire College
I have been very pleased to use the services of Provision in recruiting lecturing staff. They have been thorough and highly professional in all our dealings. We have had a consistent point of contact and they have ensured that we have the correct person for our organisation. Provision maintains excellent communication with myself and gains useful feedback which he shares with his clients. They have engendered a sense of trust and integrity which I value. Within the last six months Provision have visited the college on two occasions to gain first-hand knowledge of the working environment where he is aiming to place staff. This customer focus goes a long way and I certainly feel that we are working with an agency which is responsive to our requirements. Bill Kenney Head of Department (Art & Design) South Essex College
As part of a major recruitment drive undertaken by Harlow College, we have worked successfully with Provision Recruitment. From the start Provision provided an excellent service, and had a thorough understanding of our needs. The calibre of the candidates provided by Provision was extremely high. They were experienced college lecturers and were well briefed. In summary the whole recruitment process ran very smoothly indeed and I would recommend Provision to other colleges. As a result of the excellent work they have done for us we have given them more assignments. Sue Young, Vice Principal - Harlow College
As part of the development of a new and exciting construction facility at Central Beds College, which will house 1300 sq m of practical space, we wanted to ensure that the calibre of staff matched that of the financial commitment of £2,000,000 that had been invested. With one hundred and one things to do to get the building ready, getting the appropriate staff (whilst a high priority) could have been a bridge too far. I contacted Provision Recruitment who took the worries off me and led the recruitment programme on my behalf. I was provided with relevant and appropriate candidates who met the stringent guidelines I had provided. They were available to help me with the process and never missed any deadline. I am pleased to say that I have fully recruited all of the staff required via this medium and would not hesitate to use them again. Bob Shore – Director of Technology – Central Beds College
