SSK Recruitment Limited believes that the best candidates in the market are never actively looking for a change. We commit to building trusted, lasting and personal relationships with our network of passive talent, ensuring a supply of fresh talent to our customers. In 2018 over 65% of our successful mandates were with “passive” candidates and we aim to maintain this level of service.


We also have a dedicated global resource centre, enabling us to quickly and effectively target high-value skills in significant volumes.

Our Services

Contingent Permanent & Contract Hire

With our highly skilled, specialist consultants at the forefront of our candidate networking model, SSK Recruitment Limited have developed a fine-tuned internal database of professionals specific to the Engineering & Construction sector. These candidates have been qualified, interviewed and assessed against a set criteria which allows for a much more specific alignment to the skills required by our customers.
Our database is shared globally and updated in real-time, allowing any consultant around the world access to immediate and precise information.

Retained/Executive Search

Our “retained search” function is best suited to skills that are considered rare in the market place. SSK Recruitment will use cutting-edge recruitment techniques to introduce our clients to the “hidden gems” in the industry, candidates who are not actively seeking employment, but who hold a specialist set of skills aligned to our customers’ needs.
We are sensitive to the nature of senior appointments and the risks businesses are exposed to and as such have developed a strategic method of extracting the best talent from a tight talent pool.

Throughout the process our clients will be updated with our progress and key data will be shared to ensure we are leaving no stone unturned.
