Invest

We believe that the first step to creating a successful working partnership requires an investment from both parties, namely in time. We’re can add tremendous value to your organisation by finding the right people to take your business forward, but we need to understand your current recruitment process, your recruitment challenges and ultimately what you’re looking for from a recruitment partner and how you measure the success of that partnership. Some of our most successful partnerships have been developed though us spending time in our clients business and having access to pick the brains of high performers in the areas we are recruiting. It’s about understanding the 30% of the role that’s not in the job description and what that looks like.

Understand

We appreciate every company is unique and in order that we can add value to your organisation we need to develop a strong understanding of your company’s culture and values in order that we can indentify candidates that have both the right skills and experience and who are aligned and fit with your organisation. We’re always keen to understand what makes your best performers and where they have come from in order that we can get first hand appreciation of what good look likes in your company and who will compliment your existing team from a fit perspective.

3. Partnership
Approach

We find we add the most value when both sides embrace honest two way communication. We work with a number of clients within the sector and have experience of recruiting hundreds of people a year in all areas of the UK across various role categories. We are well placed to advise and support our clients on interview process and what is takes to successfully onboard candidates. We offer advice on salary and remuneration and have benchmarking information to support this, we can provide market intelligence on why you might be struggling to recruit a particular role in a certain location or role category. We’ll challenge your thoughts processes, in the right way, so that we leave no stone unturned when looking for the best talent to join your organisation.

Plan

Once we have a thorough understanding of your business, we work to agree with you how we’ll approach the recruitment process for each category of role (operations, head office functions etc). From ensuring clarity and our understanding for each vacancy through to ascertaining preferred backgrounds so that we can target the right candidates for you. We might even look to throw in a couple of “curve balls” in terms of backgrounds you haven’t considered before but who we feel could be a good fit. It’s also important that we put the right team together, with the right experience to support you and your recruitment. We believe in regular communication and updates to ensure you’re fully aware of our progress and we’re aware of any significant changes in your requirements.

5. Search, Networking and Candidate Selection

We add value by taking your specific requirements and searching across our extensive industry specific networks to find the right candidates for you. We will ensure that all methods of candidate attraction are thoroughly covered (advertising extensively and searching across relevant national local & sector specific job boards)and as well as accessing the active and passive candidate networks we also bring a pro-active focus to your recruitment assignments to ensure we’re giving you access to high performers (headhunting). When we have identified suitable candidates we will present a shortlist to you (usually of no more than 3 candidates, unless you expressly ask otherwise) that sets out exactly why we’ve selected the candidates and why they meet the individual vacancy brief.

6. Recruitment
Process

As well as sourcing the right people for your business, our aim is to ensure all candidates are fully committed to your recruitment process and we take responsibility for managing candidate commitment, interview availability and attendance. The work we do with our candidates to ensure we only work with those who are serious and committed about moving to another role results in candidates who are fully prepared, have visited and researched your business and are committed to the interview process, for all of the right reasons. We also take responsibility for “offer” acceptance and supporting you with on-boarding to ensure the candidate experience is of a high standard and that ultimately you secure your preferred candidate.

Review

In recognition that every business evolves, we like to have regular review meetings with you to ensure that we’re completely up to date with our understanding of your business and requirements. This helps ensure we’re acting as a great brand ambassador for your company whilst creating a regular opportunity for complete transparency regarding our performing and helps both parties to identify opportunities to refine and develop the working partnership.
