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.
The first step is to simply get in touch with us. You can do this via our Make an Enquiry form, or contact us here.
We want to get to know you and exactly what you are looking for, to enable us to find your ideal person or people.
Our aims are:
To meet our Clients wherever 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, supporting and guiding both Candidates and Clients through the employment process and thus 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)
