Welcome to Czech Match Recruitment
Czech Match Limited was incorporated on 19th February 2004 and is based near Tain in the Scottish Highlands. We aim to recruit workers from Board level executives and professionals to unskilled workers across most industries and services including Agriculture, Construction, Education, Engineering and Manufacturing, Finance and Banking, Health and Healthcare, I.C.T., Office and Support Services (inc translation), Retail and Service Sector, Sales and Marketing, Transport, Travel and Hospitality from other European Union (E.U.) member countries, especially the former Central and Eastern European countries which joined the E.U. in 2004 to fill the skills gaps here in the United Kingdom (U.K.).
Originally we anticipated working almost exclusively with Czech citizens who wish to come and work in the U.K., but since incorporation we have extended our search criteria to include citizens not only of E.U. member countries but also from any country legally permitted to work in the U.K. We have also now expanded our search criteria to recruit UK citizens who wish to gain/change employment within the U.K. or abroad.
Like other Recruitment Companies in the U.K., we do not require to register with any Government Department though this may change as a consequence of discussions being held in the European Parliament and Commission. Recruitment Agencies who hire out staff in the “temp to perm” field and in certain niche areas, e.g. Nursing Recruitment are covered by specific regulations, which do require registration. Until we achieve registration in any of these areas, we will only pursue our aims through the services of partner companies, which are registered.
We were formerly licensed Gangmasters and held registration under the Gangmasters Licensing Act. This enabled us to conduct recruitment activities in the agricultural and food production industries. Having chosen not to renew our registration in November 2016 we no longer place candidates in activities covered by the Act. You can consult the database the GLA holds of registered and authorised agencies which is available on their website.
We require to meet the standards laid down by the Employment Agencies Act 1973 as amended by subsequent legislation of the U.K. and Scottish Parliaments and we will always aim to provide a standard of service to our clients, candidates and members of the public which at least meets these requirements. Guidance on the standards expected of Recruitment Companies can be noted on the website of the Department of Trade and Industry and are contained in its publication PL971 (Rev 3).
As part of our portfolio of services to our clients, we entered into Strategic Alliances with a network of partner Recruitment Agencies and Companies throughout the world. Our network already extends to companies in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, Romania and Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Other companies are linking with us and each adds a new dimension to the range and depth of services we can offer to our clients.
We also retain a large portfolio of Senior Managers and Company Directors both within the U.K. and in other countries who have served on Regional, National and/or International company Boards and who are available for short-term or Non-Executive Board appointments/consultancy appointments with companies in countries throughout the E.U. and the rest of the world.
