How Our Relationship Started

In 2017, a specialist recruitment consultant from the Proactive Personnel Manchester branch called a local food manufacturing facility in Manchester offering support with their staffing requirements.

“Proactive clearly had a lot to offer and this tied in with our requirements,” says Leanne, HR Manager for the client’s business. “A meeting with swiftly organised and additional information on our business was provided in advance. The meeting with professional, useful and engaging… how could we not start working together?”

The Recruitment Problem

Staffing shortages and high turnover are typical issues in food manufacturing businesses. The client was struggling to fill operational roles and that’s where the Proactive team stepped in. 

The Recruitment Solution

Over the following weeks and months, the Proactive team got to know the client’s business as well as we know our own. This meant that we were able to recruit, select and place the right candidates; people who we knew would be the right fit for the client and who would make a genuine difference to the client’s business. 

Leanne says, “The ongoing relationship that we’ve built with Proactive has been the biggest benefit to our business. They know our operation well, which is a great advantage when it comes to recruitment as the candidates already know what to expect. We get a very personalised service and this has consistently been the case for the last five years.”

“Giving great service requires the right people, through Proactive’s fantastic service we’re able to provide the same to our customers. 

We’re forever grateful for the support of Proactive over the years. They’ve been patient and understanding as we aren’t the easiest company to recruit for. I’ve always felt like a priority and I’m sure other clients feel the same, which is a skill in itself and a credit to the Proactive consultants.

We look forward to continuing to work with Proactive on the next stage of our journey as a business.”
