Our Recruitment Process for Clients
The process of using an agency should be simple – we are here to take away the stress of a time consuming and sometimes fraught independent search.
Contacting us couldn't be easier - you can use our Make an Enquiry form, or simply call or email us here.
At some point, we need to have a conversation with you, preferably at a time of day that allows a detailed, uninterrupted discussion of your needs. We want to get to know you and exactly what you are looking for, to enable us to find your ideal person or people.
What are our aims?
We aim to meet as many of our Clients as possible and offer Client visits, where feasible, to discuss their search and understand their requirements
To ensure the expectations of our Clients and Candidates are met to the best of our ability
To foster a professional, supportive relationship and maintain full confidentiality at all times
To provide the highest quality Candidates available
To be thorough in our procedures, including interviewing, checking and vetting our Candidates
To provide a quality after-care service to support and guide both Candidates and Clients through the employment process, fostering long term relationships with both parties
How do we source our candidates?
The majority register with us through recommendation
We advertise widely online and in the press
We keep our website updated regularly with new vacancies, with the permission of our Clients (we never display Client details on our site)
Why are we different?
We have a 25 year reputation which means that we attract the best Candidates from all over the world
Our consultants are specialists in their field - many of them are qualified to work in the sector for which they are recruiting so know exactly what to look for in good Candidates
We go above and beyond when it comes to accreditation which makes us one of few agencies able to place almost anywhere. For example, we have an active REC Membership and a SECO Licence for our work in Switzerland
