As the leading IT support provider in the Nottingham, Derby and Leicester area, Air-IT has a wide range of SME and enterprise-level clients across all types of industry. However, one area we’re particularly strong in is the recruitment sector.
Since our establishment in 2005, we’ve worked with many recruitment companies across the East Midlands. This includes a number of companies that are based in the local area that operate on both a national and international basis.
Over the years, we’ve learned to appreciate the reliance these firms place on their IT systems to manage their businesses effectively. Connectivity is equally important as recruitment businesses rely heavily on web-based applications, such as job search and candidate selection software.
Therefore, it’s essential for recruitment companies to have an up to date IT infrastructure and connectivity solution in place that’s well supported and kept running at peak performance. And of course, these companies also need effective IT systems in place to manage their day to day operations – just like any other type of business.
Specialists in Search and Selection Software
As you’d expect, the business management and search and selection software used by recruitment agencies is probably the most important IT investment they’ll make. Air-IT has developed a huge amount of experience and expertise in supporting and maintaining the leading brands of industry-standard and bespoke search and selection software. These include RDB Pronet, Bond Adapt, Itris, Palustris, Gel, EnterpriSe and Aspire.
As well as providing front-line support for our recruitment clients’ overall IT requirements, the expertise we’ve developed in working with bespoke recruitment software means Air-IT can also support and train their staff on this software, and even act as a go-between between our clients and the software companies.
Fully Managed IT Solutions for Recruitment Clients
With such a good understanding of the industry, Air-IT is perfectly placed to provide recruitment companies with the complete management of their IT and connectivity needs -helping them to successfully operate and achieve their future business goals.
Through our IT support packages, we provide user support from our dedicated Service Desk and field-based technicians whenever it’s required. And by continually monitoring our clients’ systems, carrying out upgrades and proactively maintaining their systems, we can minimise downtime and keep their IT networks running at optimum performance.
Our Recruitment Sector Clients
Air-IT’s portfolio includes many local and national recruitment brands such Staffline Group, Essential, QS, Vet Connect, Techsearch, 360 Recruitment, Teachers UK, Evro Recruitment and Code Red Associates.
This area of our business is growing rapidly and we’re frequently taking on new clients within the recruitment sector. Let’s take a closer look at two of our newest additions and how our expertise is helping them improve their IT systems and work more efficiently.
The Staffline Group is a national recruitment organisation specialising in the food processing, manufacturing, e-retail, driving and logistics industries. The Group’s head office is in Nottingham and they operate from more than 200 locations across the UK, supplying up to 30,000 workers every day. The Staffline Group consists of a number of brands, including Staffline Express, Select Appointments, Driving Plus, Onsite, Elpis Training, OSP and EOS.
Staffline has been an Air-IT client for a while and we’ve provided managed IT support for some of their Yorkshire-based offices for the last few years. So we were delighted when Staffline recently asked us to be their preferred IT partner across the entire Group, supporting their own internal IT department. This is a great reflection of the high quality service we’ve given Staffline in the past and their recognition of our expertise in the recruitment field.
Air-IT now provides fully managed IT services across the Staffline Group to support their systems and infrastructure. This involves working closely with their internal IT team to manage, maintain and support the Group’s IT environment, enhance the efficiency of their systems and make sure the right IT infrastructure is in place to help the company meet its future growth plans.
360 Recruitment and Code Red Associates
360 Recruitment and Code Red Associates are two separate companies that operate under the same ownership and from the same building. 360 Recruitment is a specialist supplier of temporary, contract and permanent workers to the UK’s industrial and engineering markets, whilst Code Red Associates supplies contract and permanent professionals to the IT industry. 360 Recruitment also has a senior appointments division.
Air-IT had a pre-existing relationship with the directors at 360 Recruitment, through one of our other clients in the recruitment sector. So when they set up 360 Recruitment and Code Red Associates a couple of years ago, our specialist knowledge and successful track record made us the natural choice of IT provider.
Initially, we provided IT support on an ad hoc basis. However, due to the firm’s rapid expansion, it soon became clear that they needed fully-managed IT support to achieve their ambitious growth plans. Air-IT rose to the challenge – providing a complete new IT environment to meet both businesses’ future needs.
This included installing a new server environment with terminal services for enhanced remote access, Microsoft Exchange for business-class email services, and new workstations. We also trained the company’s staff on using their new systems.
360 Recruitment is now benefiting from Air-IT’s Support-IT package. This meets their ongoing support needs by providing unlimited access to our fully-qualified Service Desk technicians and field-based engineers. What’s more, our 24/7 system monitoring activities, along with preventive maintenance and updates, means we can identify and deal with most potential issues before they impact on business performance.
