About Calandria Labour Consultants

Competing for the most experience and qualified candidates in today’s employment marketplace poses significant challenges. When business requirements demand for multiple hires within a short timeframe, these challenges have increased cost implications and hinder your ability to meet business objectives.

Your staff is a vital component of your business’ success. Unfortunately, too many businesses are caught up in the processes. Searching for suitable talent, pinpoint sifting through CVs, responding to candidates, arranging interviews and checking references are all very necessary but time-consuming and costly exercises which your business does not also have to deal with in an already full everyday commercial environment.

A Proven Solution

Calandria Labour Consultants offers an outsourced approach to optimise your talent acquisition, to manage multiple hires within a specific timeframe. Our consultants use our proven method to deliver seamless, workflow-driven talent acquisition strategies that can help you secure the right talent, quickly and effectively. Before engagement, our consultants will work with you and your business to fully understand your requirements and business culture to develop a customised strategy to identify, attract and retain talent. Once the project is under way, our team follows a tightly integrated process and timeline to deliver multiple hires without sacrificing quality, professionalism or efficiency. Our proven processes for candidate care, screening and evaluation ensure that you reach the right people to meet the needs of your business.

We understand our clients’ manpower requirements, the importance of procuring the candidate with the desired profile and assist you in recruiting them with our industry expertise.

We understand that companies today require more than skilled candidates. They desire employees who are productive, exhibit positive attitudes and have the ability to become part of their team.
