Our Process

As ambassadors for our clients, our role in securing the best possible talent is ever more crucial in today’s candidate-led market. Our 7-step interview process takes a deep dive into the specific competencies and experiences of our candidates, examines the minutiae of the roles with our clients and facilitates the best possible outcome for all concerned. With contingency, managed advertising and retained recruitment options, we can match the approach to any recruitment requirement. A good number of our consultants have worked in their market sectors for many years- we know what we are talking about.

We adopt the latest software and practice cutting-edge social recruiting techniques, allowing our consultants to do what they do best: being a communication conduit between candidate and client.

Step 1: Assessment

Where you tell us what you need and we take a detailed brief. Due to our significant recruitment and construction sector experience we know the questions to ask to make sure this doesn’t take up too much of your time.

Step 2: Specification and Research

Here we will drill into the specifics of your vacancy, your business and your goals. We will prepare a written job description, adverts, and the criteria needed for the ideal candidate.

Step 3: Identification

We will pro-actively scout the market for suitable candidates using our close industry ties, personal contacts and extensive database and candidate sourcing techniques. You will be kept informed of progress with regular status updates.

Step 4: Evaluation

Our consultants will gather a short list of suitable candidates and conduct initial screening interviews. They will be evaluated on the basis of their experience and their potential to fit within your organisation.

Step 5: Presentation

You will be presented with confidential written reports on the candidates that we feel are best suited to your company and project. You will only receive 3 or 4 candidates who most closely fit your specification to save you time.

Step 6: Interviews

A mutually convenient time for a meeting between you and each of your chosen candidates will be arranged so that you can assess their suitability for yourself. After the interviews, we will contact each candidate for feedback and report back to you with their comments.

Step 7: Hire

Once all interview stages have been completed and you have chosen your preferred candidate we will deal with the job offering stage. Upon acceptance we will ensure they are successfully on-boarded into your organisation.
