We go the extra mile – so you can stay one step ahead

In an increasingly competitive world, the success of your business depends on the quality and commitment of your people.

We want to gain a clear understanding of how your organisation operates, from your growth strategy to culture, processes and ambitions.

Our greatest success is demonstrated when we partner with you to drive efficiencies, add value and innovate.

Aligra’s experience across various markets enables us to concentrate on driving down costs and reducing your labour spend through transparent pricing, technology and management systems.

Temporary, Permanent or Contract staff, at the ready…

Our Whatever it Takes approach ensures exceptionally high fulfilment rates, our account management is second to none and is nationally acknowledged to stand out from our competitors.

Compliance is at the heart of everything we do, validated by our accreditations:

  • GLAA (Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority)
  • ISO9001
  • REC (Recruitment & Employment Confederation) Audited

Whether you are looking for an extra pair of hands or an entire team, on a temporary or permanent basis, our trained consultants and technology will source and match suitable personnel to your requirements.

These sectors are fast-paced, competitive and constantly evolving to meet new challenges and rising costs.  We have a wealth of industry experience working with a number of high profile clients in this sector, and fully understand the challenges you face.  We have placed hundreds of workers into assignments throughout the UK.

Our management team have decades of industry experience in the transport and logistics sector, understanding the issues faced by both clients and candidates. It means we can offer an exceptional service – comfortably within budget.

On the Transport side, working closely with you, we can help to reduce MPG and wastage, manage infringements, and improve safety. What’s more, we can effectively plan for peak periods and show how to promote greener driving.

Aligra are uniquely positioned to offer our Automotive and Engineering clients a first-hand work shop recruitment service.

We have found in the past our clients suffer from spending valuable time and money offering candidates who look good on paper, yet do not have the practical, hands on skills.  To effectively counter these common issues, some of our senior management team have worked and are qualified in this area, enabling Aligra to undertake enhanced candidate screening, using industry competency based questions, reducing the risk to you.

We know that in a global marketplace, talent can come from almost anywhere. In our Professional and Executive sector we cast our net far and wide to source the best local, national and international candidates for the UK market.

We seek out experts in sales, human resources, marketing, financial services, technology, alongside more generic office based roles.  We collaborate with clients to fine-tune our service and make sure they get the right people, whether it’s a temporary receptionist or a new permanent executive appointment.

In parallel, we work closely with candidates to help them develop their career, providing job matching, interview coaching, health & well-being advice and CV support. We’re dedicated to helping candidates and clients realise their ambition.

Our structure is agile, allowing us to fill your very short notice requirements, alongside those longer term key appointments to drive your business forward.  Our approach is honest with communication at the forefront.  Our fee structure is transparent and we will work with you to ensure our service perfectly complements your strategy, budgets and growth.

 For our larger customers, we offer various solutions including:

 On-Site Teams: stronger, together

A business model that has proved successful time and again, we pride ourselves on becoming an extension to your organisation.

We offer an on-site and fully account-managed service.  Working in partnership with you, we can help increase productivity, improve overall staff performance and reduce the administrative burden.

Taking a consultative approach, we are also able to reduce labour costs as well as consolidate and manage your staffing vendors.

 Master Vendor: harness our expertise

Temporary roles can be difficult to manage and fulfil – which has a knock-on effect on costs. That’s why we offer a fully managed outsourcing service, designed to handle all operational recruitment as well as the on-going supervision of temporary workers.

The benefits of using Aligra for your Master Vend solution include:

  • Direct cost savings and increased staff retention
  • Assurance of supply, particularly during peak and/or seasonal periods
  • Management of second tier and/or panel suppliers
  • Full recruitment advertising
  • Consolidated invoicing – which leads to clear costing and budgeting, and makes planning easier
  • Managers are free to focus on critical project work

COVID – 19 UPDATE

This is a message of thanks to our colleagues and temporary staff for their efforts in continuing to work at this difficult time. We fully appreciate the uncharted challenges and uncertainty presented by the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), but are doing our best to keep you continuously updated, as your safety is our main priority.

The on-going situation, which affects both businesses and individuals, is causing enormous uncertainty, but at Aligra, we are doing our best to maintain ‘business as usual’.

We want to let you know that looking after our clients, temporary workers and colleagues is our main priority at Aligra, whilst ensuring we all have a clean and safe environment to work from on and off site.

The safety, health and wellbeing of all our employees is a top priority. Our primary aim is to ensure that our employees remain fit and healthy. We are therefore providing some basic information and signposting detailing where they can obtain further information from healthcare professionals.

We have arranged additional hand cleaning products to be made available at all our locations and for clear signage to be displayed to prompt good hygiene practices.

Should an outbreak occur, contingency measures are being prepared to ensure that client and candidate service is not impacted.

All government guidelines and protocols will be followed to ensure our people return to the workplace safely.

By adhering to government guidelines we will be keeping our colleagues and communities safe, as well as protecting loved ones. We have critical frontline workers within our business supporting the supply of vital logistics and social care contracts. We also have numerous teams who play key roles in the employment of tens of thousands across the UK. We are doing our very best to continue to offer ongoing support where it’s needed, translate the new government policies and fill specific roles which are currently in much-needed demand.
