We start with a really detailed client briefing session. We really try to get under the skin of your company and scheme in order to fully understand your values, ethos and work environment as well as the motivations, specific characteristics and competencies the ideal candidates you seek. A thorough briefing leads to outstanding results.
The headhunters talk to their friends, course mates and society colleagues, recommending the role, the company and the career path in detail and explain to them why they think they are well suited to it.
Our screening team here at HQ then receives hundreds, sometimes thousands of applications from campus which they can then either pass directly into your internal system or we can screen them for you. This might take the form of a CV screen & telephone interview or it might include the entire screening process up to assessment centres. It’s up to you.
We submit our shortlisted candidates to you by an agreed deadline, usually within 1-3 weeks of the campaign starting depending on the scale of the search and screening.
We can deliver any candidate feedback and can handle the communication of your final decisions.
