Our business process follows the main assignment phases of taking the brief, sector analysis, candidate identification, evaluation and reporting then assistance if required in negotiating terms of employment for the successful candidate. Detailed reference checking and reporting is also available, if not undertaken directly by our client. A clear understanding of the context and culture surrounding any requirement remains crucial to successful assignment completion, as does the initial establishment of clear and unambiguous criteria for the role in question. The processes leading to candidate identification bring together a number of parallel avenues, linking specific business sector research to personal contacts, industry experience, an extensive in-house database and if necessary, co-operation with our international affiliates.
Diversity Policy:
We understand the pressures on our clients to meet the prevailing requirements of diversity and equality. Therefore, we do everything in our power, within the context of the brief given to us, to assist our clients to satisfy or exceed those requirements.
