We believe that the first step to creating a successful working partnership requires an investment in time from both parties. 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. It’s about understanding your business and the 25% of the role that’s not in the job description.
We appreciate every company is unique and in order that we can add value to you, we need to develop a strong understanding of your company, culture, and values in order that we can indentify candidates that have right skills and experience, who are an aligned fit with your organisation. We’re always keen to understand about your best performers, what makes them stand out so that we can look for similar traits when recruiting your roles.
We find we add the most value when both sides embrace honest two way communication. We are well placed to advise and support our clients with market intelligence as well as the wider recruitment and onboarding process. We offer remuneration advice and have up to date benchmarking information to support this. We can provide market insights on what it takes to recruit a particular role and skill set to ensure the best performers are identified and secured. 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.
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, including bringing a pro-active focus through headhunting to your recruitment assignments to ensure we’re giving you access to high performers. When we have identified suitable candidates we will present a shortlist to you that sets out exactly why we’ve selected the candidates and why they meet your vacancy brief.
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. 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.
We recognise that every business evolves, and we like to have periodic reviews 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 true brand ambassador for your organisation whilst creating a regular opportunity for complete transparency regarding our performing which helps both parties to identify opportunities to develop and enhance the working partnership.
We structure our internal teams by vertical sector and once we understand your vacancy requirements we will allocate you an Account Manager who will be your single point of contact regardless of where in the UK your role is. Your Account Manager will manage our internal resource to ensure we deliver suitable candidates promptly, according to your expectations. Your Account Manager will provide expert market intelligence and liaise with you throughout the candidate sourcing, interview and on-boarding processes.
Headhunting & Retained Assignments
Where clients want to recruit the best talent in the market, we recommend a headhunting process to identify and secure the right person. We map out the market, discreetly approach suitable candidates and then share information with them regarding your organisation and role. With some sensitive or confidential searches, the candidates that we identify are asked to sign an NDA to protect the confidentiality of both parties. We agree with you a bespoke approach to sourcing candidates, including targeting particular companies that you want to see candidates from. Headhunting is about accessing the passive candidates who are not on the open market for a critical appointment or one that is challenging on account of skills set or location.
Internal systems & Database
We have an extensive internal talent bank of over 250,000 live candidates (post GDPR!) specific to our sectors, which is proactively managed and updated on a regular basis to ensure it doesn’t become obsolete. We have access to a further 12 million candidates on a day to day basis through utilising external databases and talent banks.
Market & competitor insights
We regularly undertake salary and remuneration benchmarking for our clients along with candidate availability and skills insights. These insights support our clients to decide which recruitment method to use for a particular vacancy. We then manage the recruitment process and onboarding for our clients to ensure they secure their preferred candidate.
We are able to offer in-depth client reporting facilities, enabling us to provide data to you on any part of the recruitment process. From placements made by location or job title, to interview to placement ratios and time to hire analysis, we have the ability to be truly transparent about our performance and the impact we have on recruitment in your business.
