We support recruitment across a range of sectors for Permanent, Temporary and Interim/Fixed Term Contract roles. thefutureworks has a highly experienced and professional recruitment team with recruitment careers spanning three decades, who understand the local market. This expertise is paramount in delivering a professional recruitment service that supports clients and candidates to make strong appointments and provided with relevant knowledge and information to make informed decisions and choices.
Our client companies have chosen to work with us as an alternative to ‘high street’ agencies, as they recognise thefutureworks being part of the Coventry University Group bringing a high level of responsibility for the Group’s reputation and credibility, our social and economic responsibility, and as having a wider scope of candidates than a standard agency to include graduates and students, as well as professionally experienced individuals. Working with the thefutureworks supports in contributing to the local economy and community through our profits being reinvested completely within the activities and development of the Coventry University Group, one of the leading employers in the West Midlands.
Internally, we support the Coventry University Group with roles across all commercial support functions i.e. temporary support during the permanent recruitment process, secondments, project support, sickness/maternity cover and general busy peak periods requiring additional resource.
