Our rapid response approach to the recruitment of temporary agency labour provides everyday flexibility whilst ensuring legislative compliance.

The demand for temporary labour within the built environment has been a permanent fixture for decades, but with increased construction across the UK and labour shortages the ability to deploy experienced workers quickly is becoming a struggle for those without access to a pre-qualified and vetted database.

In 2017, we placed 14,821 temporary workers across London and the South East, including, general labourers, customer service co-ordinators and sales negotiators across 148 client locations.

Utilising a well-established database, Potensis has a proven capability in sourcing temporary workers. Our trade and labour division supports Residential Developments, Social Housing and Commercial Construction, during pre-build and build stages, whilst our sales and customer service team have an excellent network for the post build stage.

Key benefits include:

We seek to register and secure reliable workers, using our market knowledge and candidate catchment techniques, to provide a rapid response to fluctuating workforce needs.

Potensis are always well informed and engaged about our business and staff requirements. We have developed a good and open working relationship.

Chris understands better than most the way we work and the type of candidates we are looking for that will fit in with our teams. I have a good appreciation of the way he works.
