We provide diverse shortlists as standard; in 2020, most of our placements were women or BAME candidates. We believe in the power of diversity and inclusion and that it makes businesses more successful, but most importantly, it’s just right.
Our approach to recruitment
We know that hiring the right people, at the right time, in the right way is not easy. It's time-consuming. It's hard to find the best talent that matches your values. The cost of a bad hire is enormous, and it's disruptive. This is why we have a different approach to recruitment services.
Typically, a businesses relationship with a recruiter starts at the point you send them a role. The recruiter then sends you CVs and acts as a go-between in your process. Sometimes, this is all you need, and getting CVs quickly is all that matters, but we can help you with workforce planning, job scoping and design and benchmarking, through to on-boarding.
