Why Use A Recruiter When You Can Find An HVAC Engineer yourself?
    It’s so tempting, isn’t it? When all you hear on the news is that there are plenty of candidates looking for work and it seems like recruiters charge an avoidable fee, you start thinking ‘maybe we should handle the hiring in-house’. We all know 2020 hasn’t exactly been good news for the employment rate, so surely it can’t be that difficult to hire HVAC specialists to join your team.   Fast forward a couple of weeks, and you find yourself knee-deep in poorly formatted CVs, trying to arrange interviews with candidates who don’t call you back, or worse, you’re waiting for candidates who don’t show up to the interview you arranged. What a waste of time and energy for everyone involved. Plus, your sales and day to day duties will suffer while your attention is diverted.   That’s exactly where recruiters like Calibre come in; we do the legwork for you. All of the time-consuming processes to move your recruitment along, all the people headaches, all those emails and calls – we take them on for you.   Still not quite convinced? Here are our top 7 reasons to use a specialist recruiter rather than try to hire yourself.   Find the passive candidates   Let’s start with the biggie. Direct hiring usually limits you to people who are actively looking. Putting an advert out on a job board or social media means you’ll only find people who make a conscious effort to look for a job. If it was a simple as that to hire someone, recruiters like us wouldn’t exist. Nearly always, the more talented HVAC or refrigeration specialists you need are already in work, we know these people, and we know how to target them.   Specialist networks   Leading on from the above, recruiters like us at Calibre have built up a vast network of engineers. Our equivalent of a ‘little black book’ is full of qualified and trade checked people who we make a point of staying in touch with. We keep our contacts warm; we know when they’re thinking about their next move. We target our specialist networks through social media posts, direct emails, calls and posting on multiple job boards to gain the widest reach possible to find you the best talent.   We review all candidates    The good, the bad and the ugly - we review each one. We know how to spot the cowboys (or girls) and well, not quite run them out of town but they are screened out with a ‘thanks, but no thanks.’ It’s our job to review all applicants to the job in question. It’s time-consuming, but wouldn’t you rather be doing your day job? Leave the early screening to us. Our experience means we can quickly identify those with the right skills, experience and attitude to meet your criteria. It’s also down to us to check out the candidate’s motivations for finding a new job. We want to make sure that they intend to not just join your team but stick around and contribute to the business long-term.   Let us handle the pre-screen phone interviews   Again, this time-intensive process is where recruiters come in. Our consultants can arrange and conduct first stage pre-screen interviews to help whittle that shortlist down. Our expertise means we can spot the time wasters and those who would take counter-offers and stick with their original employment (the latter is beyond frustrating for those involved, so let’s avoid that. That's something else we manage but that's another blog).   Emails, interviews and ghosting   Ghosting is a fairly new term – often used in the dating world when one of the parties stops replying to all messages. texts, WhatsApps, emails; they go unanswered as if the person has turned into a ghost. Again, it’s unbelievably annoying if the other person is 100% your type on paper. We deal with the heartache of ghosting. We also take on the laborious task of calling, emailing and arranging interviews then rearranging them when necessary, ultimately freeing up your time to focus on the day job.   The Feedback loop   Those awkward conversations that no-one likes having, well that’s our job too. We know we have to have those chats. We have to deliver the ‘it’s not you, it’s us’ or perhaps ‘it’s you, you’re just not the right person for us’. And that feedback goes both ways; the candidates might pull themselves out of the race if you don’t seem like a good fit for them. It’s down to us to make sure no bridges are burned, and feedback is handled diplomatically. People talk and if you don't get back to interviewees with feedback, either positively or negatively, word can get out and this makes future recruitment more difficult. We’re in the Facebook groups, we’re talking to the suppliers, and we’re ensuring that your feedback is fair and your reputation is protected.   The best bit   Making the job offer and having it accepted is far and away the best part of the process. It’s what keeps recruiters coming back to our desks every day but it's not always a straight forward exercise. We’ll guide both sides through to make sure it’s as stress-free as possible. This can be everything from talking the candidate through how to hand in their notice and dealing with counter-offers to making sure they know where to be and who to meet on their first day with you.   All of this is a moving feast. People are people… they change their minds, have different demands, focus on different priorities and can suddenly change direction. It takes time and effort. Our job as a recruiter is to shield you from any and all of the problems. It’s what we’re good at, and that’s why our HVAC and refrigeration clients come back to us time and again.   Get in touch with our specialist team today for a no-obligation conversation.

Meet the Team: Simon Owen
Meet the Team: Simon Owen  Simon Owen, Director of Building Services, has been recruiting since 1998 within the Building Services, Facilities Management, Energy Management and Sustainability sectors.    We wanted to give you a little bit more information about our Simon, and when we caught up with him in a short but sweet Q&A style interview, here’s what he had to say…   What would your clients say about you? Persistent, honest and reliable (I hope!)   Do you have any advice for anyone who wants to get into recruitment?  Think about your motives; what do you want from your career? What do you think recruitment is? Can you ride the rollercoaster of a role where your success is reliant on the decisions of other people? It isn’t an easy career, but it is hugely rewarding!    What's the hardest interview question you have ever heard?  “Do you have any questions?” It is the most easily anticipated (every interviewer will ask it), but flummoxes so many people.    What are the most common mistakes you see job hunters make?   Apart from failing to prepare for the “Do you have any questions?” question, the other aspect where job hunters miss a trick is by not asking themselves “would I honestly appoint me to the role that I am applying for?”    When applying for a post you should really look to achieve at least 7 out of the 10 of the criteria for your application for it to be worth making. The other big thing is that some people can be very cagey when speaking with a recruiter about different motives and parts of their job search, which can result in the recruiter not being able to represent them most effectively; it’s best to be completely open as a good recruiter will be able to advise on all aspects and help emphasize your assets to ensure the best outcome.   Your favourite guilty pleasure TV show? I don’t really watch a lot of TV, but if Fantomworks or Police Interceptors are on, it’s not unknown for me to watch three or four on the bounce – especially if I’m doing the ironing...   Describe your perfect Sunday? My perfect Sunday would be when I have the chance to cycle 100 miles or more on hilly roads with glorious scenery. This would then be followed up by a meatless Sunday Roast with my family - who needs meat when there are roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, and Yorkshire puddings?   What's the song that gets you motivated in the morning? Anything played loud! But my personal favourites would be: “Feel the love” by Rudimental and John Newman; “Let’s get rocked” by Def Leppard; and “Sometimes” by Sound of Guns.   Describe your job in three words. Personal, giving and rewarding.   If you’re looking for a role in the Built Environment sector, Simon’s expertise can support you in taking the next step in your career.   Connect with Simon on LinkedIn    Browse Simon’s available jobs here

The value of halo projects to UK skills
Here are the views of our Principal Transportation Consultant, Dan Brokenshire, following the announcement that HS2 has been confirmed.   The confirmation of HS2 is undoubtedly great news for the industry; it’s halo projects like this that allow the maintenance and intergenerational transfer of skills upon which the UK’s construction and engineering reputation is built. The secondary and perhaps less obvious bi-product of the commitment to this new railway is the fact that it will create work, catalyse innovation and persuade the next generation to get into the industry. Phase 1 and 2a will now be worked on simultaneously which will allow regeneration projects to commence, good news for both associated industries and local communities.   HS2 could be a unique showcase of the UK’s ability to deliver projects of a scale which of late have only been seen in Asia and the Middle East. The economic impact of inward investment will no doubt encourage companies to invest in their people, build exportable skills, catalysing activity throughout the value chain. The announcement last week was essentially one of opportunity creation as well as a brave political step. If you reflect on the last two big rail projects - Cross Rail (budget est. £20bn) and the Channel Tunnel (budget est. £12bn in today’s money) this is a seriously long-term play.   We have been supporting clients with the provision of manpower on the project for some time and look forward to doing so in future but for the scheme to be a success there needs to be joined-up thinking between all interested parties. This needs to widen the employment pool to include international talent, upskilled workers from similar industries and the yet-trained workforce of tomorrow. As recruiters, we can see the potential land grab of talent over the horizon as consultancies and contractors look to bolster their ranks and position themselves as ready to take on the task.   I’m sure there will be challenges ahead, but it bodes well for an industry which is having to diversify constantly as the built environment is redefined by legislation, technology, and use.   Feature image Source: SIEMENS/ PA, from BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51443421

John Cassidy: Avoid the 7 year itch
Avoid the 7 year itch… In a world where people jump from job to job and businesses struggle to keep hold of key talent, we talk to Calibre’s Associate Director John Cassidy, about what’s kept him at Calibre as he celebrates 7 years in the business.   How did you get into recruitment? I didn’t go to university, which made it a challenge to get my foot in the door of the recruitment industry. When I left school I started as an administrator for a big recruitment agency in Leeds and then went to work in administration for a car dealership. But I’d caught the recruitment bug. I’d seen the business in practice and knew that hard work could literally pay off. Most agencies were just looking for grads, but Calibre saw passed this. They could see I was ambitious and willing to put the work in, and they gave me a chance.    What support did you get? Calibre don’t just leave you to sink or swim, which I know can happen in some agencies. They broke down the business into sizeable chunks and offered training and support all the way through. They helped me gain the skills I needed to run my own desk and then eventually run my own team. I’m now building that team, with four of us so far, and hopefully six by Q1 next year. There’s a really clear promotion path and you always know where you stand.    What do you enjoy about working at Calibre? They’re a good bunch of people. Everyone gets on, no sniping, or politics. It’s not your typical recruitment agency with high pressure and no mistakes allowed. You get lots of support. There’s a good social aspect too with nights out, incentives and the Christmas and summer do.   I was one of the first employees outside of the leadership team, so it’s always felt like a really personable company. As we’ve grown, the directors have managed to get the balance right between being friends and leaders. They don’t leave anyone in the lurch, they’ll try and help them and identify why things aren’t quite right.   We don’t have a high turnover of staff and the directors really care about the people they employ. In lots of companies, you’d never be able to challenge a director, but here, they listen to you and take your opinions on board. It’s great to feel comfortable to voice your opinions.    How have Calibre kept you here? There are places to go at Calibre. I’ve never hit a ceiling. Every time I’ve hit a target, I can ask what’s next and there’s a clear path showing me what I need to do to get there. There are no limits, no blockers. Plus the fact that there’s a good atmosphere in the office every day.    What’s been the highlight of your seven years with them? Lots – the money you can earn by working hard is a good thing. Coming to the office and it being a nice place to work - I’ve never clock watched. The basic fact that it’s a great environment is a massive highlight I don’t take for granted.   What would you tell someone thinking about working in recruitment? You need to have a good work ethic. You can teach recruitment and how to run a desk, but you can’t teach people to work hard. If you’re willing to work hard, that’s half the battle.  Be wary about which company you go to. Lots of companies take people on and chew them out again. It can give recruitment a bad name and can damage your confidence. Do your research and look for a company that has the right values and gives you the support and training you need.
