Employers: Trawling through a plethora of CVs hoping that one might just hit the mark – sound familiar?

Optima offer a transparent and well structured recruitment process designed to suit the specific culture and needs of your business. Through intensely focussed preparatory work centred around a selection of the best skills match, we enable you to see into the recruitment programme at any stage. We spend time and energy to understand your business and people requirements to maximise our efficiency and minimise your input into the selection process and short-listing.

Optima by numbers?

Over five years, an individual recruited on a salary of £40,000 will cost an organisation around £350,000 in salary and benefits. Yet the typical length of time spent interviewing a candidate is around 2 to 3hours. Where else would you spend so little time on a £350k capital outlay?
