What’s special or unique about your existing team, your products and your customers? That’s what we aim to discover. A proper understanding of what makes your business tick is the cornerstone of our approach. True understanding only comes from a thorough analysis; one that allows us to debate and challenge, with objectivity, your current recruitment plan.
First, we clearly define objectives. Once that’s done our consumer sector specialism allows us to quickly share the most relevant target companies and start identifying the truly exceptional candidates within them. Then we develop a long list of people who can make a difference to your business. And, finally, after further debate and analysis, start confidentially approaching them.
You only really know someone when you’ve spent a little time with them. Our aim is not just to assess whether they can ‘do the job’ but also whether they will flourish in, and add to, the unique culture of your business. Once we are convinced that they will be able to make a difference, only then do we recommend them.
The emphasis we put on getting to really know a candidate ensures that when it comes to making them an offer, we already know their motivations – it’s rarely just about money. If it was, they might not be the right person for you. We work very closely with you during the offer stage, communicating openly and with pace. This ensures that the beginning of this vital new relationship is built on a solid foundation for long-term success.
