Case Studies



LPG Gas BottlingCalor


Following a period of workforce uncertainty in 1991, our client chose to outsource its production workforce and selected Drake International a key recruitment partner.


The decision to work with Drake was primarily due to the company’s vast experience in providing flexible workforces in a highly unionised environment. The financial and operational benefits to the client are considerable.


Drake provides a fully trained core workforce throughout the year with additional support from contingent seasonal workers. All staff supplied under this contract are employees of Drake, freeing the client of many of the burdens of employing large numbers of staff.


Drake handles the recruitment process from beginning to end and is responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all of its staff. Drake now supplies staff to six sites across the UK.

Drake have supplied large numbers of temporary workers to our client for over 10 years. With over 700 staff across 2 sites, our client continues to use Drake for all new recruits across all skill categories as they experience huge growth in their own markets. Utilising the recruitment skill and experience of Drake allows them to focus on their own key business activities.


A programme of detailed recruitment, training, continuous assessments and worker engagement and counselling sessions, spanning several months delivers a proven workforce when their business requires further permanent headcount, whilst maintaining the accepted need for a degree of flexibility in the number of workers required.



Whatever your requirements – our experienced and specialised team will be able to help and support your business.
