PSR grow through Raw Talent


PSRFor the first time in September 2014, Staffordshire based Construction recruiters PSR Solutions joined forces with Raw Talent Academy with the goal of hiring the very top talent from around the local area. With PSR Solutions eager to expand their teams at their Stafford office and with Raw Talent Academy being experienced in sourcing high calibre candidates across the UK, it made the new partnership between both organisations an exciting announcement.

The audition day, which took place on the 14th October 2014, saw the  invited candidates undertake a series of real life business tasks while being assessed by both PSR Solutions’s senior management team as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. As the day drew to a close 7 of the talented individuals were offered a position there and then! The audition day process, created by Raw Talent Academy Founder & BBC Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen, has been designed to showcase the candidates abilities so that clients can judge them based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.

PSR Solutions – established out of a desire to provide comprehensive and personalised recruitment solutions to construction professionals was founded in 2005 by James Sanders and Mark Palmer. Over the last 9 years PSR Solutions’s focussed approach has helped build their business into the company it is today, due to this they now have an enviable reputation as one of the leading providers of freelance and permanent managerial and technical staff to the UK Construction industry.

Raw Talent Academy’s unique process started with them carrying out a comprehensive profile of PSR Solutions to fully understand the type of candidates that not only succeed, but thrive at the company. Following the profiling, Raw Talent Academy sourced the top candidates from the local area to attend the audition day held in Stafford.
