Octain Recruitment Steams Ahead

Press Release: December 14, 2009

Essex based Octain Recruitment are delighted to announce that they have recently been awarded the Link-up audit. Link-up the highly regarded UK rail industry supplier qualification scheme and audit process is an accolade that Octain has been looking to achieve for some time. This accomplishment shows Octains commitment to growth and indicates the strength and experience the team has in this particular field.
Octain already has an established recruitment desk that specialises in construction, opening the rail desk was a natural step as the two industries have a great deal in common, in particular the attention to detail required to ensure health & safety standards are met. With over 16 years experience between them in safety conscious roles Octain is feeling extremely positive about the future. The company has an exemplary record and was determined not only to achieve the audit but to do so by being able to represent a diverse portfolio of workers to the industry.
The company achieved this and are now able to provide rail companies with a bank of experienced and qualified staff across a breadth of disciplines, including:
Safety critical staff: PTS Operatives, PTS skilled Operatives and supervisory staff
Infrastructure support staff: On track protection & warning, renewals, level crossing installation & maintenance as well as long term track and infrastructure maintenance.
Small packages of work: concrete repairs, platform white lining and barrier works.
Donohoe states: I am delighted with what weve achieved, our focus has always been about providing qualified and reliable staff and this ethos has not changed. As a team we worked extremely hard to become accredited. Achieving such a high standard of accreditation is a reflection on the company and what weve already achieved. We are very much looking forward to building

relationships within the rail industry and showing them our capabilities, much like weve already done in the construction industry.
