Raeburn’s Rail and Transportation division is one of the UK’s leading railway recruitment provider. Our London division specialises in ‘hard-to-find’ and business critical staff on a temporary, contract and permanent basis across the UK rail sector, with a primary focus on Health & Safety and industry standards helping power the future growth of the rail network.
Through to 2019, investment into the existing Network Rail infrastructure is set at more than £25billion, with the key focus on introducing electrification, lengthening platforms, building innovative stations and continuing track renewal programmes.
“1.7 billion Journeys are made on the Network Rail Infrastructure every year – more than twice the number made 20 years ago. London Underground has carried more customers and run more train services in the past 12 months than ever before – a staggering 1.3 billion journeys, demonstrating the growing need for a strong and skilled workforce.”
Crossrail, Crossrail 2 and High Speed 2 (HS2) are the major infrastructure projects that will be taking centre stage over the next few years, but these require a workforce and the demand for skilled rail professionals is at an all-time high.
Attracting candidates that your competitors cannot find is the key to competitive advantage. Raeburn believe that Job Boards and Databases have had their day. The ability to identify & recruit the best talent that are not looking today but will consider a compelling opportunity is the difference between hiring the staff that will add real value to your business.
That said, our ability to identify unique 'passive' talent in the market is just the beginning of our 'Value Proposition'. Building candidate relationships, gaining their trust and influencing them to come to the hiring table is the real value. That requires time, dedication and integrity. We are skilled at bringing the candidate to the client, and ensuring the right candidate experience throughout the recruitment process.
As we are all aware talent is in short supply and the candidate is savvy to the recruitment sector. The secret to 'Candidate Experience' is how we make them feel and treat them with respect. This means communicating with the candidate, returning phone calls, telling them the truth, respond in a timely manner, make them feel important, ensuring quicker response times, transparency and contact with a person not a web site.
Our consultants are 'talent magnets' developed through personal professional digital rail branding. Raeburn approaches every requirement with total focus and commitment to deliver the most suitably qualified and experienced candidates who demonstrate the values, integrity, commitment and work ethic of our client. Raeburn endorses our clients Employer Value Proposition, their Mission and Vision. Raeburn promotes this Employer Value Proposition which ensures we identify and recruit the right fit for our client.
The above sets Raeburn apart from most competitors because we can attract passive candidates from our network which are not known to our clients or our competitors.
