Specialist recruitment consultancy GCS Associates has launched The GCS PLEDGE, which aims to help as many people as possible, who were made redundant during COVID-19, to get back into work.
The company says: “During COVID-19 many of our friends, colleagues and peers within the Construction, Building Supply & Hire sectors have been affected by redundancies. At GCS, we have spoken to so many talented individuals who are now actively looking for new roles, and we’re committed to supporting them by providing our recruitment services for free.
“As recruitment specialists within these sectors, we are making a pledge to help, at least, 21 people who have lost their jobs due to COVID, back into employment.”
GCS Associates have 15 years experience recruiting within the Construction, Building Supply and Hire sectors and pledges that it won’t be charging for its recruitment services, acting as a company’s recruitment partner to shortlist CV’s and present the best possible candidates for each business.
The pledge has been welcomed by the Builders Merchants Federation. CEO John Newcomb says: “The BMF is pleased to endorse GCS’s initiative ‘The GCS Pledge’ – 21 for 2021′. Its a great initiative which runs in parallel with the CLC’s Construction Industry Talent Retention scheme, of which the BMF are a founder member company. We all know people are our most important asset and I encourage all of our members and associates to get behind these initiatives.”
