01. Conversation beats computers
The right hire and the wrong hire. The difference between them is huge. Get it wrong and you waste time, money and resources. But when you get it right? You improve productivity, hit business goals and boost morale. So we follow a meticulous process to make sure you receive candidates that fit your culture, not just your job description.
It’s impossible to make a call on a candidate’s cultural fit for your business using nothing but a computer. So we blend digital savvy with the personal touch. And we meet and nurture relationships with each candidate and every client. It works. Our collaborative approach encompasses the entire human resources lifecycle.
02. Client assessment
We don’t do anything until we have a deep understanding of your vacancy, your culture and your wider goals as a business. That knowledge is the difference between good candidates and great candidates and ensures we provide candidates that fit. You talk, we listen.
Once we know exactly what you are looking for, we begin building bespoke talent pools from our extensive candidate database (we receive around 2,400 CVs per week). With over 40 branches across the UK, we are able to combine national reach with local knowledge. And as well as scouring our own database, we can target additional applicants with a recruitment campaign using your branding.
The screening process is rigorous. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach – but the screening phase can include online appraisals, tailored testing and assessment centres. The one thing we insist on is a face-to-face interview. Our recruitment consultants are supported by experienced resourcers to help whittle down the candidates to those who have the skills for your vacancy, the desire to succeed and the personality to fit your culture. You can be as involved in this process as you wish. All branches are regularly audited to ensure full legislative compliance and adherence to health and safety regulations.
We take full accountability for the success or failure of your recruitment campaign. No excuses. Our ethos is centred on blending client demands with candidate aspirations – and it hasn’t let us down yet. As an ambassador for your business we ensure each candidate interaction cultivates a positive impression of your business, leaving candidates enthusiastic and motivated.
