1. to seek information or advice from
2. to confer
Oxford English Dictionary
In the tabs below we discuss how we can be of service to you. It is up to you how much of an investment of time you make, but we can advise at each stage and a plan can be agreed between us before we start working with you.
An initial meeting is the ideal start to our understanding of you as a business, and helps us do a good job on your behalf. The information we gain from you at this meeting about your business’ aims and its culture means we can work effectively as your advocate when meeting potential employees. We seek to build long-term partnerships with our clients based firmly on trust.
Our level of involvement is defined by your organisation’s needs. After our initial discussion, we can define what the project requires. We can take on as much or as little of the process as you want us to, so that we provide the right level of support for HR or the recruiting manager. Before we take action on your behalf, you always have the final say on our approach. Our support and regular communication continues throughout the process, from the meeting until after the successful candidate is in place.
We use methods both old and new to find you the person most suited to the vacancy. We network and spend time getting to know people. We use the internet and social media in every possible way to access the widest pool of candidates for your role. We meet as many individuals as we can, however if that is impractical then we use Skype or Face Time. We then use our expertise to filter the list, so you only invest your time in meeting the best people.
For permanent roles, our process is such that when you offer a role to an individual, we think you will be entirely confident that you have made the right decision. However, to make sure you are supported throughout the challenging first 3 months after a new employee starts, we commit to being an ear for both you and the individual whenever is necessary, so that if there are any issues whatsoever you can ask our advice. As for contract staff, we manage all payroll and contracts and insurance so you only need to worry about the project.
The Added Value
There are many ways the right consultant can add value to your recruitment process and make sure it is part of your coherent recruitment and HR strategy. We have years of experience and knowledge, but we are also members of REC, and we keep ourselves up to date with changes in legislation, advancements in technique and trends across recruitment markets. We are knowledgeable across a broad range of selection methods; for example, we can help you choose and hone the right interviewing framework for your organisation. We can also provide expertise if a job needs redesigning or perhaps you need help making your offering more marketable. If you would like us to spend some time in your department, from a half day to a full week or more, helping you achieve a more refined, modern recruitment process, then we can also offer highly competitive consultancy rates.
The Advocacy Model
We believe in the Advocacy Model. We benchmark ourselves against this in every part of our work and it ensures we achieve mutually beneficial partnerships:
Our pricing structure is simple and competitive. You may think our extra commitment means we are expensive, but we have carefully researched our charges compared to the rest of the recruitment market and we know we are competitive.
If your project requirements mean that contract staff are the most appropriate hires, then we can also offer competitive rates
