Fircroft & Bentley: A Long Standing Relationship
Bentley Motors is the most sought after luxury car brand in the world. For over 75 years, the company has a successful history of building cars driven by values of luxury and performance. It is growing and performing better now than ever before.
Having worked with Bentley for 14 years, we’ve now been its sole supplier of engineering contract professionals for the last decade – a real compliment to the work we do. I’m a Fircroft employee based on site at Bentley’s headquarters
in Crewe. My role here is to act as a buffer and barometer of what’s happening internally at Bentley. Being onsite as a recruiter is fairly unusual, but it means there is a lot of coordination required to manage the client service. Working onsite allows me to get to know the client, build stronger relationships and really understand their culture.
Contractors at Bentley
Our partnership with Bentley has been one of our real success stories. We started out recruiting just a small number of contractors for them, and the quality of the candidates we place means that we continually prove our value to Bentley. The feedback received has been consistently positive. As an industry-leading recruitment company, we bring to Bentley an incredibly high level of recruitment expertise, a real eye for detail and a vital sense of objectivity.
We work to recruit across a range of disciplines for Bentley. These include automotive design engineers, automotive development engineers and technical administration roles. The nature of our close relationship means that we’re perfectly placed to find exactly the right candidate for the right role. Our contractors really enjoy working for Bentley; aside from the obvious prestige of working for a world-renowned company, they enjoy a good working atmosphere, competitive salaries and well-recognised roles.
Recent and Future Success
2013 was a strong year for growth, with a record number of cars sold – the most in Bentley’s 95 year history. They were recently awarded Top Employer status for the third year in a row by the Top Employers Institute. In particular, the institute recognised Bentley’s dedication to personal development, working environment and employee culture as praiseworthy – mirrored in the feedback we’ve had from our contractors.
The service that we’ve been able to offer Bentley is something that we remain incredibly proud of and we’re looking forward to continuing this important relationship. If you’re interested in learning more about the automotive opportunities that are currently available please take a look here
