As well as our standard recruitment services, we also offer a range of advisory and consultancy-based services which may significantly improve your recruitment process and enable a substantial reduction in costs.
These are each considered separately below, but can be summarised as follows:-
Managing your existing suppliers - helping you choose them, assess them, manage them, control them, get what you want from them, continuously appraise and replace them.
Managed & Sole Supplier – want all the advantages of the best suppliers, but want just one point of contact and control? Then, we will act as your sole point of contact and manage all of our internal suppliers on your behalf giving you the best of both worlds – choice, control with ease, and simplicity.
Internal Recruitment Management – making your recruitment process as efficient as possible, covering requirement distribution, CV tracking, interview arranging, placement confirmation, etc
Internal Resource Management – helping you make the most of your existing staff, knowing their skills, meeting their aspirations and avoiding needless costly recruitment.
Workforce Compliance Audit – helping to make sure that your recruitment and staff are contractually, legally and financially compliant with local employment, tax, and legal legislation.
The external supplier is the source of your candidate base, so having the wrong suppliers or suppliers doing the wrong things will seriously affect the integrity of your source. We can help you to locate, select, appraise and manage your external suppliers.
We are able to offer services covering the following key areas:-
Do you suffer from any of the following:-
If any of these problems seems only too familiar to you, then we can promise that we can help. Dependent on your specific set of issues, we will undertake any number of the activities below:-
A single company that can provide all of the advantages of a well-chosen supplier base - the technical & geographical coverage, the competitiveness, the responsiveness, the cost-effectiveness; and that company is us.
Imagine a day of dealing with only a single company:-
To implement our service, we go through all of the strict procedures that we would for our standard External Supplier Management program in selecting a series of Internal Suppliers who will assist us in ensuring that you receive the highest level of choice and service.
With yourselves, we define the interface that you want to see in procedural, contractual, and reporting terms. This interface will be unique between us, and all interactions with be solely with us and in accordance with it.
It should be you that is controlling recruitment and not recruitment that is controlling you
It would be wrong to think that all of your recruitment problems would be solved if only the external suppliers did their jobs properly. Clearly, it would be easy to simply try to blame them for everything.
Unfortunately, however, you are often to blame as much as the external suppliers for the problems that exist, and we hope that you will forgive us for pointing that out.
Having a good front end in the form of effective external supplier management is vital, but its benefits can soon be undone with inefficient internal recruitment processes.
Do you suffer from any of the following:-
If any of these problems seems only too familiar to you, then we can promise that we can help.
With ever-increasing skills shortages, you should focus on better utilisation of existing staff, rather than on the recruitment of new staff.
Inevitably within any workforce, there are problems. Managing and meeting people’s individual aspirations, both technically and personally, within the confines of the business is never easy.
Additionally, there always seems to be a shortage of the right skills. The usual remedy sought to this problem is the recruitment of new staff. This, however, often merely has the effect of building on inefficiencies and problems that already exist, and, thus, makes them worse.
Does your workforce suffer from any of the following:-
There is much that can be done to address these problems in a proactive fashion, and we can show you how.
In general, resource management is about managing the resources available to meet the needs of the business in the most efficient and cost-effective way. When that resource is people, however, the issues become far more complex.
The problems with people have been amply discussed in the previous section. The key to the solution of these problems is information.
The key information that is required is:
The appropriate application of this knowledge can be used to achieve a great deal in terms of functionality and capability.
Having the right skilled staff is only half the story - having them compliant with local legislation is easily missed. Make sure you’re safe with our help
You’ve interviewed the ideal candidate; you inform the supplier and negotiate a rate; the supplier informs the candidate and negotiates a rate; the candidate accepts and starts work. Everything is great – but what about compliance?
Too many suppliers will happily supply you with the resources that you require but will leave you, as the client, exposed to legal and financial penalties for failing to meet local tax and employment legislation.
Not only can we confirm that our own recruitment services ensure fully compliant resource solutions, but we also offer an audit service for your existing resources to ensure that all such resource is contracted in a legal and tax compliant manner.
We have full recruitment solutions that are fully compliant with all local employment and tax legislation, and we would be pleased to check your existing arrangements against our standardised solutions.
