Medical screening

Pre-employment medical screening

As part of our candidate pre-screening process, where appropriate, workers are subject to drugs, alcohol and medical examinations to ensure compliance with industry standards.



Tooling and safety work wear

If a requirement of the contract with a client, we ensure our candidates are first class by equipping them with industry regulated tooling and dual branded safety work wear in line with their role requirements. 


Industry training

Industry accredited training

We provide our candidates with access to industry accredited and bespoke training through leading engineering training partners. In collaboration with the employer, we tailor our training courses to individual client processes or specific role requirements.




To ensure a smooth transition into the role, we issue a comprehensive on-boarding pack to all placed candidates specifically tailored to our client’s requirements. This contains all of the necessary information, ready to start work.
