Why retaining a recruiter is advantageous:
This method will produce results-a deep search that will uncover the “A players”. These candidates are employed in secure positions and do not publicize the fact they could be tempted. To start I would take a very detailed brief from you then, produce what I call a “white paper”. This document is then emailed for you to verify and make any comments. Once done I instruct my research team and they get to work. Typically 1000 calls are made per vacancy eventually shortlisting the best 2-3 candidates who I personally interview. No CV’s are submitted without my approval.
For this level of service, I ask for a % of my fee upfront and for you that means;
You get my commitment. I go home at night thinking about your vacancy, wake up thinking about it and ensure my team and I leave no stone unturned getting you the person you need to progress. I know you are serious, that is how the vacancy is regarded and it will be filled with a high-performer.
Your vacancies treated as a top priority. When I work my engaged clients are my top priority. The candidate alerts you may have seen from me are the by-products of searches run for clients who have agreed to a shared risk deal.
Expert filtering. All CV’s are expertly filtered and only the best submitted. For me it is not send, send, and send.
Reduced time spent on recruiting. Contingency search agents will send high numbers of CV’s hoping one will lead to a placement and you have to sift through them! This is very hit and miss often leading to a bad hire that can cost you dearly.
Your brand is not diluted. To explain; if I talk to a great candidate about your company and the role and the same day another recruiter calls and says the same thing then that candidate’s opinion of your company can be damaged, it appears you are desperate. One recruiter selling the job to them is much, much stronger.
Your upfront fee is deducted when I issue my invoice so this enhanced service has not cost you more!
PS After completing your search I will never forget you trusted me and will always tip you the wink first when a candidate is uncovered who fits your company. You get first refusal.
