The requirement: In 1999, the local Council Offices at Ebley Mill asked First Base Employment to assist them with a number of vacancies for which they were recruiting. The Council were looking to recruit local administration staff on a temporary basis to provide long term sick cover, and an increased workload which meant its permanent staff needed some support.
What we did: First Base Employment worked closely with the department heads and the Human Resources department to set standard salary bands for the varying levels of skills needed and set about determining which type of skill set was necessary for each department. The candidates were tested in their data input and word processing ability, as necessary, and were interviewed (by us initially and then the council) to ensure the correct team fit.
The result: Over the the last 15 years, First Base have been selected as a supplier of choice for the Council and continue to place temporary members of staff which are often offered permanent roles within the organisation. We are often asked to provide candidates at short notice for interview, and present CV’s and candidate summaries for the Council to select from.
We have worked with the majority of the Council departments and have assisted Candidates with an interest in working in the Public Sector into roles where they have been able to develop their skills with the Council’s support.
To date we have worked with the following departments:
We are actively recruiting for job roles that we are struggling to fill; finance admin, FLT drivers, reliable packers and warehouse operatives as well as (as always) engineering staff with the following skills:
CNC Programmers (milling and turning),
With combined experience of over 40 years in the Engineering and Manufacturing sector our team recruits for many of the leading Engineering and Manufacturing employers in the region and are specialists at finding those hard to find skills.
We welcome on board Mr Ian Mayo.

We are always keen to hear from good candidates and the best way to hear from them is by word of mouth.
2015 is here and many see the new year as a chance for new beginnings. The result of this is that many employees take the opportunity to change where they work.
