On Loan's pride at serving thousands
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 5 Mar 2018
THOUSANDS of people have gone to work for companies in the UK and abroad thanks to the efforts of Humber-based specialist On Loan Recruitment, which celebrates its 20th year in business this month.
The Immingham-based company has been led from day one by joint founder and managing director David Riggall, who said the success and longevity is down to the approach taken to the process of finding the right people for often very specialist roles.
He said: “Although we work in recruitment, we are emphatically not an agency. We would never dream of treating employees as a commodity, and our success reflects that approach. It has been built on the understanding, from clients and potential employees alike, that we want to find people who bring not only the right skills to a role, but also have the right attitude to fit into a company culture.”
David said the first step in establishing the new business, in 1998, had been to build relationships with companies in the Humber region. He said: “We achieved that with two years of effort, after which we decided to spread our wings and work with companies further afield as well. The first objective was to create links around the country, but our efforts eventually led to working relationships with clients in Australia, Norway, China, Germany, Mexico and Italy, among others.
“I am particularly pleased that we are still supporting some of our very first clients almost 20 years on,” he added. “This is very unusual in the recruitment market as things change all the time. I believe it is down to our core values of trust, respect and delivery along with understanding the needs of everyone involved in what we do.
“What we have also managed to achieve over the years is to place many of our past contacts into new roles when their employment has closed. Now they are our new clients, and appreciate the continuity that working with On Loan provides. I like to think this is testament to the added value we offer in our all-round service.”
He also believes credit is due to the people who work at On Loan with him. “Without our own team developing we would not have been able to move forward,” he said. “Our clients have total trust in our people, who make up part of our winning formula. Ethically we believe we are the very best.”
With 2018 continuing to be as positive as 2017, On Loan Recruitment would be pleased to hear from any company wanting advice or extra personnel, as well as from candidates looking for new opportunities. Contact the office on 01469 577698 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
