Benefits, Culture, and a Focused Future: Why Work For WRS?

Back to Blogs

You’ll usually find us recruiting for companies in the renewable, marine, construction, and oil and gas sectors. But this isn’t just a ‘usual’ blog. Because we’re currently hiring internally! So if you’re a recruitment professional looking to make a difference in a growing industry, read on.
And as recruiters, we know that hiring is a two-way street. So what makes WRS an ideal place to work?

We offer more than just a salary

When it comes to benefits, ours are extremely rewarding. We’ve recently added health benefits for UK employees, meaning they’ll be covered by private insurance should they need to book an urgent GP appointment, or seek accredited help from a range of other medical professionals. 

We also believe in taking time off. Which is why we provide 20 days of annual leave for employees based in the US, as well as eight additional ones for public holidays. A huge boost compared to the average 10 –  unsurprising considering there’s no legal requirement in place for America.

And that’s not all! We also offer*:

  • Cycle-to-work scheme

  • Free parking

  • Great public transport links

  • Social events and nights out

  • 1.5-hour lunch break for gym-goers

  • Great pension scheme

  • Clear career progression

  • Uncapped commission

  • Extra day holiday for long service

  • Birthday half-days

*Please note that each benefit depends on the employee’s location.

We’re clear on culture

A company can only be as good as its culture. Here at WRS, we believe that culture matters – we even wrote a blog on it! We’re clear about our values, and we always ensure they’re reflected in the work we do:

  1. We deliver results safely.

  2. We work with integrity.

  3. We take pride in our successes.

  4. We lead with expertise.

But just as crucial is our DNA. When we’re looking for new team members, we seek those who:

  • Respect others, regardless of background or experiences.

  • Have a positive and friendly attitude.

  • Are encouraging, collaborative, and honest.

And when you’ve got such a talented, value-driven team, you can’t help but shout about them! Which is why we have an employee of the month programme in our US office, and we’ll soon be rolling this out to our UK team as well. 

We’re focused on the future

We’re always looking ahead. In fact, we created a 2024 roadmap to guide our success in the new year – and part of this is having a clear mission and vision in place. 

We want to be recognised as the ‘go-to’ end-to-end workforce solutions agency by both our clients and candidates. By continuously improving our services and knowledge, we aspire to surpass service delivery expectations. As for our vision, we operate a strategic initiative known as ‘KB100’ – in other words, aiming for a £100 million turnover.

But just because we’re focusing on the future, doesn’t mean we’re forgetting our impressive history. We’ve been around since 2001 (though you might remember us as ‘KCMB’ before rebranding in 2008). And during that time, we expanded from the UK to Iraq in 2014, Singapore in 2015, Ireland in 2019, East Africa in 2021, and the US in 2022. We’ve also won a number of awards, with the most recent being:

  • Highly Commended at the TIARA ‘Best Talent Solutions Company To Work For’

  • Best Staffing Firm to Work For in the UK 51-plus Employees 2023

  • Buzzacott’s Organic Growth Report 25 (OG25) 2023

  • Made in the UK, Sold to the World Award Winners 2023
