Government & Defence

Sanderson delivers Resource & Consultancy services, both directly and indirectly, to a wide range of Homeland & International Security and Defence organisations. We are formally recognised as a prime supplier of contract and permanent recruitment services to HM Government and Government affiliated organisations.

Our primary focus is to provide a portfolio of services and deliver through a service model that enables organisations to be certain that they can consistently acquire security cleared resources, in a timely, cost effective manner. Under pinning service delivery is a professional talent pool of actively cleared personnel at both SC and DV level, comprising all core Engineering, Construction, Business and IT disciplines. Our service is trusted by a wide-ranging portfolio of Clients, including Government departments, MoD, Consultancies, Systems Integrators and private Companies, due to:

  • Our knowledge of the Government and Defence sector
  • Our consistent record of delivery, quality, speed and accuracy of response
  • Our ability to innovate and provide a tailored service
  • Our team of SC and DV cleared Recruitment Consultants

Our highly experienced team has built extensive knowledge and networks within the community, and enabled the delivery of projects ranging from single individuals to entire project teams. Holding security clearance has enabled a far closer working relationship with clients where it has traditionally been difficult to attend site. The service has therefore extended beyond the provision of personnel, and included role profile development with SFIA competencies, pre-interviewing candidates and assessment of current incumbents.

Sanderson adopt a wide range of methods to attract the best candidates, but is predominantly driven through the network of individuals that has grown exponentially over the last 20 years. As a result of recommendations and referrals, our database has become focused, wide-ranging and current. Database growth and subsequent recruitment is supplemented by advertising on our website and on general and specialist job boards. When providing a targeted recruitment campaign we also utilise other methods of attraction which include attendance at exhibitions (eg Security Cleared Jobs exhibition in Bristol and London), engagement with specialist services (eg RFEA - Regular Forces Employment Association and CTP - Career Transition Partnership), military publication advertising and networks within the Armed Forces (eg the Royal Engineers, who have undertaken civilian/military construction projects, both in the UK and overseas).

The expertise of our recruitment consultants ensure that frequently occurred issues are met and overcome. Thorough vetting of candidates ensure that security clearance status is fully understood, and expectations are set if renewals or new applications are required. This can lead to considerable cost and time saving, through careful management of applicants. Regular contact and updates also mean that individuals are kept fully informed and engaged, which leads to a high delivery rate and limits unexpected drop outs. Attention to detail is critical and has been the cornerstone of our service delivery.
