1. Demand Received
Once a demand is received, an engineer is assigned from the same vertical
to look after the demand. We allocate an engineer so that we can technically
better understand the requirements of the project site. This empowers us to
select better quality candidates. Necessary documents such as POA, EA and
Demand order will be requested at this stage. Our engineer will then present
a project plan to the client to ensure timely recruitment.
Through our database, network, brand image and advertising, we accumulate
candidates for our clients. We have on board 25 full time engineers who are
responsible for conducting a 30-45 minute trade test for tradesman.
Engineers are shortlisted after an extensive interview. Only the candidates
who pass our strict testing procedures are invited for client interviews.
Our goal is to only present candidates who match the client's job
requirements. This process generally takes about two weeks. During this
period the client is informed of the recruitment location.
Once the shortlisting is complete the client is invited to visit our trade
testing centers for the selection. Only short-listed candidates are
presented to ensure high selection rate. Though DSS is well equipped with
all necessary tools required for tests and interviews, we request client s
to inform us in advance if any unique tool or equipment such as crane etc.
may be required for the test. This is because we want our client to conduct
accurate tests so that only those candidates who will add value to the
project are selected.
Post the client selection, the documentation process starts. DSS does all
documentation work in house. DSS maintains excellent relationships in all
embassies and is therefore able to get documents attested/stamped in a
timely manner. Our relationship of 34 years with most embassies stands us in
a good state.
5. Skill Up-gradation
In India, most skilled candidates learn their trade from elders in their
family. They have not received formal education and many have not worked
overseas before. Once the candidate is selected by our client, we ask him to
report to our institute 12 days before departure to the project site. DSS is
the only company to run its own Skill Up-gradation centers (Over 120, 000 sq
feet) where each candidate is made "Site-Ready" over a 15 days
program, in a camp like environment, where food and accommodation are
provided free of cost. Being Site-Ready involves the following:
Knowledge : Candidates are given knowledge about the country
where they are being mobilized. They are familiarized with local labor laws,
camp rules and guidelines as well as Gulf work culture.
Productivity : All candidates must be well aware of tool &
equipment being used in the Middle East and are taught to work more
efficiently and effectively. All candidates are expected to achieve certain
Attitude and Aptitude : Over the course of 10-15 days, our
staff also keeps an eye on the attitude and aptitude of candidate. It's
important for each candidate to have certain qualities that ensure his
success on the project site besides their work skill.
Safety : Safety is a big area of focus. A large amount of time
is invested in Safety training. WE first start by explaining the importance
of safety and follow it up with demonstrations on how to keep safe on the
After 12 days of successful skill up-gradation training we dispatch
candidates to the project site.
