Since October 2O2O Leeds based recruitment company, Slink, have sourced more than 150 sub-contract gas engineers for their sought after client, Boiler Central. What’s even more impressive is that collectively, these engineers have completed 1500 installations Nationwide for the firm from their initial appointment just five months ago.
Slink’s Founder Sarah Elston (pictured left) said: “The growth of Boiler Central began in the first lockdown, which is when they reached out to us looking for support in sourcing sub contract engineers to meet demand. The intake of staff has been vast, and the positive is that many of the engineers we’ve secured have been retained for longer terms and additional work.”
Kelly Walsh, Recruitment Manager said: “We have noticed that the boiler industry doesn't sleep, which is something the recruitment agency can relate to all too well – I think it’s why we work so well together. Our philosophy is to always be adaptable and available to our clients, whatever the time of day. Given the climate it’s really refreshing to see and even more rewarding being able to play a small part in the growth of Boiler Central too.”
If reaching the incredible landmark of 150 wasn’t enough, they also allocated a job to their first female engineer. Sarah said “When we came across a female engineer who was available to take on work we were undoubtably thrilled. There's no hiding the fact engineering is a male dominated industry, but there are females out there working and we hope to liaise with more females on behalf of Boiler Central in the not so distant future.”
