We recruit both permanent and contract / interim positions
here in the UK and internationally.
We use a variety of methods to source individuals for our
clients. Usually the nature and the scarcity of the desired
skill set dictate the most appropriate approach.
Contingency Database Search
In most instances this approach will uncover the desired
candidate. Our database of contacts has matured and developed
over the years through referrals and in-house advertising
and therefore the network effect makes this our most effective
tool for recruiting. Our clients benefit from the speed
this approach allows and also the fact that there are no
up front costs. Fees are only payable if a client decides
to engage a candidate introduced by us.
Occasionally where Contingency based searching does not
yield the desired result it necessitates the need to supplement
the search with an advertising campaign. We can undertake
advertising campaigns on a client’s behalf, allowing
them to benefit from our experience in choosing appropriate
media, design and layout as well as handling all response
and marketing the opportunity to respondents.
Since recruitment is our core competency we are in an ideal
position to promote the client in the best light from the
moment a response is received. We can answer potential candidate’s
questions (inside and outside of normal office hours), credibly
promote the opportunity and respectfully handle rejections.
Search & Selection Assignment
In some situations, particularly with rare, highly sought
after or unusual skill sets, Search and Selection is necessary
to locate the right candidate. This is a project based assignment
where we would dedicate resources to working exclusively
with the one client. We have at our disposal techniques
such as headhunting allowing us to open the pool of potential
candidates to include passive job seekers that for a variety
of reasons do not respond to advertisements or register
with the usual recruitment channels.
Clients benefit not only from the choice of candidate available
but also from in-depth interview and evaluation assessments,
discretion and the efficient use of management time interviewing
only thoroughly pre-screened candidates. This is very much
a bespoke service that requires commitment from both us
and the client and therefore an agreement is set out at
the commencement of the assignment to detail key project
milestones and deliverables.
