Recruitment

Let us be your own recruitment manager, minus the expensive agency fees

We know that having the right person in the right place at the right time is crucial to your business’s performance. A great hire can boost team productivity and staff morale.

Replacing employees can be expensive, hiring can drain manager time and finding a replacement can be expensive when you factor in search agency fees or advertising costs.

We don’t charge expensive search and selection fees like a recruitment agency. We provide recruitment process outsourcing where our HR team acts as your recruitment manager, providing services on a time-recorded basis. For clients on one of our plans we would deduct time from your monthly plan hours to cover recruitment activities and for clients paying ad-hoc we would charge £150 per hour.

How does it work? 

  • We will work with you to understand the role and more about your ideal candidate
  • Draft a job description and job advert
  • Post your vacancy on appropriate job boards or in publications (third party advertising costs apply – our standard online job board advertising packages start at £350 plus VAT)
  • Manage and review applications
  • Screen candidates using phone and / or Skype
  • Carry out a social media audit
  • Provide you with a shortlist of candidates
  • Work with you to plan questions and manage interview stages
  • Arrange psychometric testing if appropriate (third party costs may apply)
  • Make offers to candidates
  • Conduct reference and background checks (third party fees will apply)
  • Advise on onboarding and inductions programmes

Please note that whilst we do everything to support your recruitment process we can’t control the job market nor the number or quality of candidates who apply!
