PROCESS MADE SIMPLE
MY SIGNATURE STEPS TO MATCHMAKE YOUR PLACEMENT WITH SIMPLICITY & SUCCESS
o1. INITIAL MEETING
I work to really understand your business - we’ll talk to determine what's essential and what's desirable for each hire: covering the team dynamics, experience, skillset, necessary qualifications etc. I’ll counsel on salary benchmarking and we’ll set a clear timeline of the process with the aim to have the right person in-post by our mutually agreed deadline.
o2. LIST POSITION
I'll then create an engaging advertising campaign to attract the appropriate talent to match the unique requirements of each position, making use of a wealth of innovative and tried and tested techniques, as well as job boards to captivate candidate interest. This can either be branded with your company name, or kept confidential, depending on your preference.
o3. APPLICATION REVIEW
I will present you with a selection of the best matched applicants who harmonise with your business goals and values, providing a shortlist with accompanying up-to-date CVs along with my feelings as to why each candidate is worthy of consideration. We can go through each person’s application over the phone, face-to-face, or I can forward their details for your deliberation in-house.
Once you’ve shortlisted those you would like to meet, I’ll actively schedule in the candidates for you and ensure you have everything necessary to facilitate a smooth first and if applicable, second interview process. If you wish, I can even provide support and guidance on interviewing techniques, appropriate questions and best-practice advice, all included as standard in my service fee.
o5. JOB OFFER
On reflection of your interviews and after selecting the successful candidate, we'll then discuss the terms of the offer of employment. I will put this forward on your behalf, forming the link between your business and your prospective new team member. Should any finer details or further conversations be required, I will work to streamline the negotiations for an effective and seamless transition.
I will be keeping in touch with you and your candidate as needed, during what can sometimes be an anxious interval between resignation and their first day. On-hand for any onboarding counsel and best practice advice, you can reach me whenever you like. We'll catch up periodically during their probationary period to ensure they're settling in to their new position well and the transition is evolving smoothly.
PERSONALITY PROFILES & ASSESSMENT SUITE
With some appointments, team fit is paramount - and with others, it’s the hard-skills that take priority. In my experience, it’s a balanced combination of the two that can turn a good hire into a great one!
My assessment suite will give you access to as many of the appraisals you need. Covering a personality profiling tool which provides indicators to key character traits, to specific software and to skill evaluations in a way that's interactive, engaging and varied.
When putting together a recruitment campaign, we can discuss the options to find you the most useful tools to help obtain an objective and standardised look at your potential candidates at any stage of the process.
