Our Search and Selection Services
We operate with the utmost professionalism, discretion, integrity, honesty and ethics at all times.
Our recruitment approach includes:
Network and Search
We network confidentially to search for candidates whom we believe will closely match your requirements. Once identified, these candidates will be interviewed by us and if appropriate selected for the short-list presentation.
We routinely conduct 1 to 1 competency-based interviews using behavioural interview techniques and provide our clients with a full interview report to accompany the candidate’s CV.
We review our own confidential database to identify individuals whose background, experience and personality closely match your requirements. We then conduct initial interviews and make a selection for the short-list presentation to you. Our database is constantly refreshed with new candidates whom we have personally met and interviewed.
We can design and run Assessment Centres to test candidates on a range of work-related activities individually and in groups, and benchmark internal candidates against external applicants.
We use LinkedIn and Facebook to extend our networking activity and reach the widest possible audience, ensuring that our candidate database is current, relevant, and constantly refreshed.
We can carry out psychometric testing on candidates if requested and provide our clients with a full report which gives an invaluable insight into personality attributes, aptitudes and abilities.
If authorised by you, we will post your vacancy onto our Company website. We are usually ranked No.1 on the main search engines in various ‘direct sales’ categories and are able to generate further interest in vacancies through this channel.
Job Description/Person Specification
From our client’s written or verbal brief we can write a comprehensive Job Description for candidates and will compile a Person Specification detailing the skills, aptitude, knowledge, experience, qualifications and personal qualities necessary to fulfill the job criteria.
Should we not be able to find suitable candidates through our search programme, we will discuss with you the option of advertising the role. We will research and recommend the most appropriate and cost-effective form of advertising to target the right individuals in the shortest possible timescale.
