Widely recognised for its flexible approach to providing both software and hardware solutions, Signals IT specialises in the Auto-ID, transport management and warehouse management marketplace, working with clients like Parcel Force, National Trust, B&Q, TNT, DHL, UK Mail and the NHS.Due to the technical nature of Signals IT’s work, and the UK-wide skill shortage within the IT industry, recruitment can be a real challenge.
However, when it comes to business, Signals IT believes in fresh thinking, which is what led them to engage with Hiring Hub and trial the online recruitment marketplace.That said, co-owner and Director of Signals IT, Robyn Seymour, reserved his judgement at first, as he was admittedly quite skeptical that Hiring Hub could deliver the specialist IT talent that he was seeking. Here’s his frank appraisal of his experience of Hiring Hub.“I first used Hiring Hub to recruit a Junior Programmer and, if I’m completely honest, I wasn’t holding my breath that Hiring Hub would work for us, especially given the niche, technical role that I was recruiting for.
“Signals IT is a specialist company. Combined, we can draw on over 400 years of experience in the IT industry. The work we undertake for our clients is, by its nature, very technical, so I was unsure that Hiring Hub could deliver the kind of expertise that we were seeking.”Having said that, we are also a fresh-thinking company and we keep an open mind. Hiring Hub’s proposition was interesting – it made sense – and as it costs nothing to upload a vacancy we thought it was worth giving it a go.”We posted a couple of IT vacancies and I was over the moon with the results that we got from it. We connected with some good specialist recruitment agencies, and we managed to fill our vacancy quickly through Hiring Hub.”Using the online recruitment marketplace was a refreshingly simple process. It’s an extremely hassle free and effective method of recruitment, and one that works for the specialised technical roles that we recruit for. So it ticks all the boxes for us.”
