Our Process

At Futures, we take a four-stage approach to our recruitment process. When it comes to matching the best talent with the right positions in the right manufacturing businesses, we think that our best recruitment happens because of our clear and efficient methods. Our manufacturing recruitment takes place over four stages:

  1. The client gets in touch – When a manufacturing business finds themselves in need of recruitment services, they get in touch with us. Sometimes, this is because unexpected news means that a business needs a position filling quickly by a qualified expert – this is where our interim recruitment comes in. Otherwise, a manufacturing business can get in touch to let us know what kind of permanent position they are looking to fill.
  2. Understanding your needs – When we’ve been contacted by a manufacturing business looking for recruitment services, the next thing we’ll do is sit down for a thorough discussion. Here at Futures, we understand the importance of having a deep understanding of your needs to find the best matching candidates. We’ll compile a brief for the position you’re looking for.
  3. Searching for candidates – Once we have a clear picture of all your needs and requirements, we’ll set to work searching for your ideal candidate. We’ll search through our national pool of candidates to find the person with just the right experience and expertise for your role, whether it’s an interim or permanent position. 
  4. Placement – Once we’ve matched you with a candidate that is both ideal for the role and also enthusiastic about working for you, they’ll be placed in your business and equipped to have an immediate and positive effect in the role.
