Whether you have a number of vacancies or a niche executive role to fill, we can offer you a bespoke recruitment solution.  We will meet with you to take an extensive brief and commit to understanding your business culture.  People are fundamental to the success of any business; our candidates are all of the highest calibre and we make it our business to find the best talent in the industry and bring them to you. You can rest assured that the CVs we send across are only for people who have been pre screened. Each candidate is met in person by one of our consultants who then spends time with them assessing their skills, experience, capabilities and career aspirations. Only when we are confident that they perfectly match your requirements will we send their details across to you.

We have a vast range of services which can be tailored to suit each organisation. Our standard contingency recruitment service is flexible and reliable and there is no fee until we have filled your vacancy and the person has started working for you. In addition to this we have other recruitment support services, which may fit your requirements a little better, please see full list of services below. Whatever option you choose, you can guarantee our professional, effective yet discreet and confidential service at all times.

Contingency Recruitment

After taking your brief in full, we will conduct a search of our extensive existing database of sector specific candidates. Through this and our networking and marketing we will provide a shortlist of appropriate applicants.  We will manage the interview process, including feedback, offers, negotiations and acceptance whilst providing support and advice throughout. The fee only applies once the candidate starts working with you. No placement, no fee.

Advertised Selection

We will manage your advertising for the vacancy, from brief taking, writing the advert (in either your company name or ours), monitoring responses, selecting and interviewing appropriate applicants to then be able to provide you with a shortlist of candidates. This takes the time out of the selection process and the fee is paid on production of a shortlist.

Retained Assignments

  • Executive search / Headhunt

This is an effective method for senior level appointments.  You can retain our services exclusively. We will spend a considerable amount of time with you taking a thorough brief and will then search for and approach candidates about your vacancy. Whilst remaining discreet at all times we will sell your opportunity to the candidates once we are sure that they would be a good fit for your organisation.  Our consultants will be there to support you throughout the whole process until the final candidate has been selected and starts with you.

We particularly excel in this area of recruitment due to our extensive industry knowledge and established network of contacts.

  • Advertised search and selection

Similar to advertised selection, we manage the whole process. However, in addition to managing your advertising campaign, we also actively search for the right person using our existing database of thousands of sector specific candidates as well as intensive networking. Here you can be assured of a comprehensive integrated recruitment process where we target appropriate candidates in addition to those generated by your advertisement.

Assessment Centres

Using our qualified and experienced Consultants we can deliver assessment centres for you, regardless of the number of applicants to be shortlisted. Through several different means (psychometric testing, interviews, assessed tasks and exercises) we will select only the appropriate candidates and provide you with a final shortlist. This is really useful if you have had a mammoth response to an advert or have several roles to fill.

Freelance / Contract

In the current marketplace, businesses need to be competitive, flexible and efficient. Freelance or contract recruitment can be a reliable and speedy solution to resourcing for projects. We have a network of freelance consultants available for contracts at short notice.

Redundancy Support & Career Coaching

If you are in the unfortunate position of having to make redundancies, we can offer a tailored support programme which includes job search support and career coaching or just a simple CV review and redundancy advice. This can be delivered as a group presentation to your employees at risk or on a one to one basis.  Please contact us confidentially for more information and prices. Also see our Career Coaching page for more details.
