Smart Staff International (SSI), a resource industry leader in technical writing, permit to work systems and safety management systems, has now added a specialised recruitment division to its portfolio. The latest addition to the company was a natural progression for SSI and spawned from a continual request from existing clients to assist in sourcing labour to fill specialised roles.

The focus is on providing a service that targets the harder to fill technical and specialised roles found in the resource industry. This can range from single placements to the formulation of entire teams for expansion and commissioning projects.

SSI’s success is attributed to the wealth of industry experience that exists within the ranks of existing employees, most of which have worked in the resource industry for many years. Managing director, David Thomson reports that from drawing on our collective experiences and extensive industry network, SSI can appropriately identify and place suitable candidates across a range of disciplines.

Although the opportunity to expand SSI’s business into the labour market was identified quite some time ago, SSI have gone to great lengths to ensure that that they got their system right before presenting the service to their clients. The first step was to find and obtain the services of an experienced and seasoned recruitment manager in Ashley Hammond, who has over 15 years experience working in senior roles within the labour sector.

Mr Hammond’s mandate was to implement a recruitment system that incorporated the latest recruitment technologies and practices with the already tried and proven recruitment process attributed to SSI’s past success. Over the years SSI have methodically mapped and implemented an extremely effective recruitment process that maximises job fit success.

“Since commencing with SSI, I have been extremely impressed at the lengths SSI has gone to ensure they recruit and select the right candidate for their business,” said Mr Hammond. SSI has created a unique system utilising their industry experience to ensure they identify the essential skills and knowledge required in relation to a specific role.

Now armed with the latest recruitment software and backed up by their unique and proven recruitment process SSI is now actively out in the market offering its service.
