Giving you Peace of Mind

  • We have high internal staff retention rates so you receive a consistent, seamless and efficient staff resourcing service.
  • Our clients come back! With a high client retention rate, we work in partnership with our clients, proving a critical business friend.
  • Our Professional Services consultants don’t work in isolation, they are part of a wider team giving them access to an extensive network of skills sets and industries.
  • We have the ability to up-scale with our ‘Rapid Response Team’, who provide additional support at times of client priority peaks.
  • We hold regular review meetings and are available on client sites as required, as well as having our own on-site facilities for interviews, etc.
  • For us it’s not about numbers, but about understanding your business and delivering quality.

When you’re looking for your next office professional, you’ll want to be confident you are talking to someone that understands both your business and the job role inside out. All recruitment businesses understand recruitment, but not all of them have the crucial and all-important industry specific experience that will add value to your business. Working with local and national companies, we can tailor our service to suit your needs, be it a large scale recruitment project or the sourcing of one or more business specialists.

SKILLS MATCHING:

We undertake a rigorous skills-matching exercise that cross-matches the skills of each candidate with the specific requirements of your business. Not only this, we also ensure that we are matching against your culture, performance and behaviour expectations.

FACE TO FACE INTERVIEWING:

Traditional methods of recruiting are often overlooked in recruitment, but we see it as one of the best methods to assess a candidates’ suitability.

TECHNICAL REASONING TESTS:

You will want to understand how a candidate would approach a specific process within your business. That’s why for certain roles we will use a technical reasoning test to assess a candidate’s suitability.

COMPETENCY BASED INTERVIEWS:

Competency based interviews allow us to predict future behaviour as a good basis and allow us to assess for key competencies including: Teamwork | Decision making | Leadership | Problem solving | Communication.

ASSESSMENT CENTRES:

We have run Assessment Centres for a wide range of corporate clients and can run them completely or provide input for your own teams to run.
