United's recruitment partner

7 March 2013

Transfer windows may close at the end of August and January, but local businesses are recruiting all year round.

The Blades' recruitment partner, gap personnel, ensure businesses enlist the best possible people to support the continual endeavor to provide success.

United's commercial director, Steve Coakley, commented: "gap personnel are great supporters of the Club - sponsoring the Under 11s Academy team. They have also enjoyed an executive box and advertising facilities at Bramall Lane for the past few seasons and with regional director, Matt Hull, being a big Blades fan, the partnership continues to go from strength to strength.

gap personnel is one of the UK's 10 largest industrial labour providers, supplying temporary and permanent workers with a nationwide coverage, across seven regions. In 2012, the company serviced nearly 1200 clients, ranging from SME and start-up businesses to multi-national organisations, across a broad spectrum of sectors including automotive, manufacturing, warehousing, waste management, recycling and food production with specialist divisions also covering driving, FLT driving and training, commercial, technical and total onsite operations.

Since being launched in 2008, gap personnel's Yorkshire region has undergone rapid expansion and now has branch offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Castleford, with operational sites in Brighouse and Bradford and a driving hub in Wakefield.

gap personnel's Matt Hull, added: "We offer a very different approach to our clients, innovative, because there is no set format. All of our work is based on the individual needs of our customers. With gap personnel, they get a Company who has listened carefully to the requirements and delivered the candidates who fit the bill and, with the back-up of our experienced teams we ensure that those candidates provide the most cost-effective and efficient solution possible.

"As a company it is important to us to have a strong community presence in the different towns and cities in which we operate. We are always keen to support leading sporting clubs and organisations that have strong community links, and the Blades are a perfect example of that.

"That's why we're so proud to be the club's official recruitment partner.

"We are also extremely proud to have been awarded with the Investors in People GOLD Award and have been awarded 'Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For' accreditation for six consecutive years, with internal staff retention figures being amongst the best in the industry."
