Proactive candidate sourcing

Further to this, we have an impressive record of successfully recruiting opportunities on a retained and contingent basis alongside our clients. Our focused approach combined with our specialist sector expertise allows us to engage with the most sought-after talent within the sector.

Our primary candidate base comes from those who are ‘passively’ seeking opportunities. As these candidates are not actively seeking employment, direct sourcing and job site blanketing does not tend to reach them and therefore we most commonly engage with them on an exclusive recruitment basis.


Perfect candidate for your vacancy

We thoroughly qualify and vet each potential applicant prior to submission, in a face to face initial interview, on their technical ability and cultural suitability. This is in line with the detailed and thorough understanding of our client’s requirements, the fundamental requirements of the vacancy and our professional expertise.

We aim to obtain a full job briefing (either over the phone or in person) from our client prior to submitting any perspective applications in which we offer a pragmatic and realistic consultancy service to ensure the recruitment process runs as smoothly as possible.

In addition to this, we are frequently meeting with our clients face to face to establish needs and changes in their organisations and teams as well as consistently building and replenishing our database with sector specific candidates in order to react as efficiently as possible when needed.
