The first month of 2019 was one of VHR’s best for contractor placements since the business began in 2003.
Our delivery team placed 172 contractors across all of our industries, in countries around the world, starting 2019 off with great work and happy candidates. In 2018 we placed candidates in 45 countries, building up a strong network of connections and clients.
This came about thanks to the great work of VHR’s academy graduates, informed by our recent survey into the needs of our engineers. Around a third of our candidates value communication more than anything else, so VHR’s recruiters are aiming to increase levels of communication and transparency across the board to ensure our candidates are happy and working in jobs that can advance their careers.
Given that VHR’s staff has now risen to 80 people across different teams, we’re more equipped than ever to deliver high-quality contracts and permanent positions to engineers around the world. Last year saw massive growth for VHR, with our marketing team doubling in size, winning over a dozen awards, and opened a new office in Valencia.
VHR is looking to continue this success and take on more work in the energy and offshore sectors, due to the continued success of our marine team. Over the coming months we’ll be expanding our operations around the world, with new team members, new projects, and new jobs.
We attended multiple events around the world last year, and in 2019 we’ll be attending even more. Our CEO will be attending MRO Middle East at the end of this week, and members of our other teams will be networking in the automotive, aviation, engineering, and marine communities throughout the year.
All this is pointing to an exciting and successful 2019 for VHR, and for the candidates we work with.
