Teagasc is a semi-state research, advisory and training body operating in partnership with the agricultural and food industries, and rural development agencies. Teagasc recruit a wide range of skills, including financial, administrative and specialist personnel – such as agri-scientists and food scientists.
When Teagasc were looking for a company to supply tailored recruitment management and administration, working alongside their HR department and supporting in-house hiring managers – Clark was the obvious choice.
Clark provides a tailored, streamlined and transparent service with detailed weekly reports. The service is through-the-line, from preparation of documents to advertising, collaborating fully with all relevant parties, leading to a vetted short-list of candidates for interview.
A Clark Project Manager co-ordinates the entire process, drawing on Clark’s resources as required and liaising fully with Teagasc. As a result of Clark’s support, Teagasc personnel have had time to focus on planning and development, and to consolidate relationships between Stakeholders, Hiring Managers and HR.
PHECC – the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council – provides training, education and support services to first responders throughout Ireland. This group includes paramedics, healthcare workers and those who deliver first aid care.
Clark provides three separate services to PHECC, allowing them to focus on their vital core work:
- We manage the administration of both their medicine development program and their examinations.
- We manage the payroll requirements for PHECC’s external instructors and examiners. For PHECC’s convenience, these examiners are engaged directly by Clark, leaving PHECC with one overall payment to make – further simplifying their administration.
- We also look after the distribution of all PHECC’s marketing and educational material throughout Ireland. This involves liaising directly with relevant organisations, including Order of Malta, HSE, Red Cross, UCD and many more. This dispersal is achieved online, through traditional mail or by collection, as required by individual organisations.
