Building strong relationships as well as solid careers
There’s a way of doing things at Clearfield that virtually guarantees great results. We stay focused on success, bring good people together, take ownership of any issues and always expect a positive outcome.
It’s great to hear how our work at Clearfield has impacted careers, projects and businesses to help growth at every level of the industry. Scroll down to hear people’s stories in their own words.
Choosing a career at a young age can be daunting. Falling into recruitment after higher education was great for me because every day in recruitment is different, making it an exciting career choice. Starting as an apprentice 5 years ago I am now a senior member of staff, a workplace where age doesn’t hold you back.
I feel fortunate to help the business grow to where it is now, including supplying new sectors of the construction market. A lot has changed in the past 3 years; staff headcount has increased by over 50%; we have moved to a new, high quality finished office in the centre of Ipswich; amongst many other things. There is real momentum and support at Clearfield to keep this progression going and I would highly recommend a career with us, whether you are an experienced recruiter, or someone new to the industry!
I started at Clearfield a year ago after becoming disillusioned at a global plc, and haven’t looked back. The autonomy I’m given to run my section of the business has delivered great results and together we’ve built something I’m incredibly proud of, not only from a performance perspective but we’ve got a great bunch in the permanent appointments team. I was attracted to Clearfield initially as it’s an impressive brand in the local construction market, a reputation that’s still growing both further afield and at home in Suffolk. Clearfield really is a fantastic place to work.
Since joining Clearfield in 2013 the company has grown significantly, however this hasn’t changed the feel of our closely knit team. We have an energetic atmosphere and a great team culture which gives greater productivity therefore helps us all perform.
There is a real sense of team spirit amongst my colleagues, a fantastic management team that values our ideas and opinions and our hard work is not only recognised it is rewarded. I have been given Opportunities for continuous growth and I am excited to further my career here at Clearfield.
I work for clearfield done groundwork in Cambridge and never any problem. Good agency I will work for again.
I’ve been working with clearfield for nearly 3 years. Always pay on time. Very professional company. Always at the end of the phone if you need them. Would continue to work for them for the foreseeable future. Great work keep it up.
I have personally found Clearfield recruitment very professional and one of the team members called Sam has always found projects that match my needs , I can’t thank them enough!!
I have been using Clearfield Recruitment to supply both blue collar and white collar operatives for the past eight years whilst at ISG Retail and Overbury. I have always been completely satisfied with the candidates that they have supplied as well as the level of service they continuously offer. I speak with both operational staff and accounts staff at Clearfield, all of which are always polite and extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble; I would especially like to mention Lauren Hammond (Account Manager) & Kris Meadows (Director).
Clearfield have supplied Styles and Wood since 2014 as a preferred supplier on our fully audited and monitored supplier programme. Our teams have always found them to be very responsive, providing reliable and high quality freelance and temporary staff across a broad range of projects and locations. In 2018 Clearfield were nominated by our business teams onto the shortlist for Supplier of the Year, the first time for a recruitment provider, which shows the great working partnership we have in play. They go the extra mile in understanding our business, getting ahead of our requirements and most importantly providing constant support to the our project teams at the sharp end of the business.
I would like to highlight my appreciation for the service that Clearfield provided my projects during the past 5 years with specialist site managers, and temporary trades & labour to the same sites. Clearfield provided the above service consistently to myself while at Styles & Wood, and once at Wates when our current suppliers couldn’t for fill my requirements notably Halifax; Oxford Street. It’s apparent in the previous service that you have provided you have a strong knowledge of the retail and commercial markets that Clearfield target.
