Engaged Recruitment

Through our Engaged Recruitment Service, we offer a more bespoke service for your requirements at all levels of the market.  As an exclusive or retained recruitment partner and by you committing to engage with us, we commit to providing you with an unparalleled level of service which you won’t get anywhere else on the market.

In a challenging market, where talent can be in short supply at all levels, we don’t simply take the job brief, we consult with you on the requirements of the role and see ourselves as an extension of your business.

Then through our deep understanding of our markets, provide you with the intelligence needed before going to market. Only when both sides are clear on the pre-requisites and the non-negotiables do we go to market to find you the best talent for your role.

By choosing this offering, and at your request, you have the option of choosing our video interview service in order to remove the first round screening interview from your process. We’ll meet the candidates online and record them answering a series of pre-agreed questions thereby allowing you to make the best decision of who to bring forward to first round interview. This means not only do we reduce the need for first round screening interviews, we can also identify the most suitable candidates for your role quicker ensuring we get the best talent into your business as soon as possible.

Why engaged recruitment?

1. A partnership

If you like to have a genuine partnership with your recruiter.

2. Saves time

Shorten your time to hire. We can do your first round interviews via video and send them to you for review thereby reducing the need for initial screening interview.

3. Quality over quantity

Prefer to see a smaller number of high quality, qualified candidates.

4. Priority

You are looking for a service that ensures your roles are being prioritised and given the time and care required to identify the most suitable candidates.
