The blog that tells you why Straco are so super!


We love praising everyone for their hard work and achievements, we felt like it was time to toot our own horn.  This week’s blog is all about us and how we hold the competitive edge over other recruiters.

So let us highlight the reasons for us being the recruiter of choice.

We know our markets

With oodles of knowledge and experience spanning 20 years we really know our stuff.  Covering a diverse range of roles within the retail, point of sale, interiors, events, exhibitions and design sectors, our specialist Consultants have a wealth of resources at their fingertips – including researchers and a marketing team to turn to.  Being well-established in these sectors certainly has its perks as we are always in the know about changes, current or future, through our strong working relationships with both clients and candidates.   We are often the ‘go to’ people for what the latest events are in our markets.

You are not a number

We have all been on the receiving end of a non-personalised service in which you felt you were just another number on a system.  Nobody likes to feel undervalued.  We really go out of our way to make sure our customers are heard and understood, tailoring our service to meet their needs, taking time to get to know them via phone calls, skype, face to face meetings or email if these are inconvenient.  Our Consultants are available 24/7 so are always accommodating to personal requirements, we understand it is difficult to correspond during office hours.  It isn’t about the money for us, it’s about the customer satisfaction and finding that perfect, mutually beneficial match between candidate and client.

It’s a no go…

The term ‘recruitment’ holds negative connotation, we are fully aware of this – and we are also aware that it is the fault of other recruiters giving others a bad name.  We can assure anyone using our service that we will not be compromised on our work ethic.  We will always consult our candidates when sending their CV to a client so they are in the know, we prefer the personal touch.  We will also offer feedback at every step of the way, whether it is negative or positive, communication is key to us.

Great Service and Great Value

Following on from the above point, we see ourselves as more of a consultancy rather than a recruiter.  We offer advice and support, guiding talented individuals in the right direction – something we are able to offer due to our extensive knowledge.  We also offer great deals on our terms, tailoring these to suit our client’s individual needs as we know every business is different.  The whole recruitment process from initial contact through to completion is delivered with minimal fuss, all thanks to those 2 decades of business.  Practice makes perfect!

Fabulous Team

With a strong team of specialist consultants and Executives accompanied with a complimentary support network, they work closely together to ensure each individual experience is a good one and runs smoothly.  The Straco team is collectively a friendly and helpful bunch, always on hand to chat about opportunities.  Hard work is always rewarded here too, and the latest recipient of this was our lovely office Administrator, Mary, who got a bit of a promotion recently- well done!    In an ever evolving industry we like to make sure everyone is up to speed and happy – there is a lot of training and development of staff which means we are able to offer a first class service.  Everyone’s a winner!

Heard on the Grapevine

Ok, we can’t expect you to take our word for it, so how about the word of others who have actually used our service?  We are proud to be the USP to a variety of clients, having built up some strong, long-lasting relationships with them.  James Freeman, Operations Director of Triplar stated; “It goes without saying that you “get” what we need and I am comfortable to continue to treat Straco as our preferred supplier now for industry experienced recruitment.  Thanks to you for the efforts throughout this process.

As for candidates, we have assisted in the career path of many, some of whom have progressed to senior levels with the companies we placed them.  One such happy customer was Nick Butler, a CAD Technician who went on to join SFD; “I found the team at Straco Recruitment to be very professional and helpful. They were able to send me for a number of suitable interviews and ultimately found me my new job in a very short amount of time. They always made sure to contact me before and after interviews and were very quick to come back to me with feedback. I would recommend Straco to anyone looking to improve their career.”

And in conclusion

Now that you’ve heard all the great reasons as to why we stand above the rest so why not see what we can do for you?  We’re always happy to discuss options in a confidential and informal matter at a time to suit you, there are no strings involved so why not take advantage?  No matter who you are, we will always strive to deliver an amazing service as we are passionate about what we do.
