Recruitment Process

Initial telephone call or meeting

We find out more about your business, your culture and your expectations. We discuss exactly what it is you are looking for in your next employee and help you to identify why they should choose to work for you rather than join one of your competitors.

Role and person specification

A tailored job description and person specification is compiled (if you don’t have a written job spec, we can help put one together) which allows us to determine our sourcing strategy.

Database search, job board advertising and social media

We’ll conduct a search of our database and contact all suitable candidates. In addition, we will advertise the position on job boards (such as Reed, Indeed, Adzuna and Caterer), social media and on our own high performing website.  Job advertising costs are borne by us, not you.

We interview the candidates

Once suitable candidates have been identified we contact them to promote your brand and the job opportunity. They will then be invited to attend an interview with us which will be held by telephone, face to face or via Skype.

Shortlist

After sourcing and initial interviews have taken place, a shortlist of suitable candidates will be presented to you with clear and concise assessments.

You interview the candidates

Your opportunity to meet your shortlisted candidates. We take care of all the arrangements from confirming dates and times to preparing the candidates for the interview.

Negotiate the job offer

We can manage the offer and all salary negotiations and start dates ensuring smooth acceptance of the position.

Manage counter offers

Counter offers can occur – we manage this process and ensure your offer is watertight.

Start date

Your role is filled! We’ll have kept in touch with the candidate regularly until they start to ensure they are happy and have no concerns. On the start date, we’ll call to check they have arrived safely and that all is well. Only then will you be charged for our services.
