When you partner with a recruitment firm you’re not buying CVs or a number of interviews, you’re investing in your people…and good people make good companies. We understand that’s why you want to fill your vacancies with the very best candidates…and fast.

So what do you do? You instruct multiple agencies to scattergun your vacancy ad far and wide in the hope that something, somewhere sticks.

For every day, easy-to-fill hires you’ll be used to working with your recruitment partner on this type of contingent basis – where you pay when the position is filled.

But there’s a problem – this approach is unpersonalised, expensive and give you the quantity of CVs, but not necessarily the quality you need. Producing more work, more screening and more unsuccessful interviews.

Retained Recruitment

However, for more critical, niche skillset, senior, confidential or strategic hires, we apply a very specific Search Methodology. You might know it as a ‘headhunting’ service, and is known in the industry as Retained Recruitment.

  • This is a fully bespoke approach – at a more cost-efficient rate.

By working on your role exclusively, as recruitment partners we’re pleased to be able to reduce our costs to a rate that reflects your loyalty (as we’re not competing against other agencies). Also, you get to split your fees at no interest, as we work with you throughout the hiring process. With fees due at key stages of the recruitment process, there’s no surprises, and no large costs due on your new employee’s start date.

  • Branded adverts generate greater interest

Exclusivity allows us to create branded adverts that sell your brand, not just your role, resulting in 72% more interest from prospective candidates. Futhermore, by being able to share your specific postcode with candidates, we can expect up to 40% more applications.

  • Transparency creates commitment

By promoting your business, your reputation comes to the forefront of the search and fosters greater commitment from candidates. This results in brand-aware, engaged interviewees who are already on-board with your values and ready to jump right in, simplifying and streamlining the screening and interview process and saving you time.
