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.
You can contact us via our Make an Enquiry form, or dependent on the location of the job, telephone the most relevant of our three offices.
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?
- 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 our 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)
