With over 30 years’ experience in recruitment we have repeatedly build contract capability from 1 to 50 individuals. Contract Resource requires maximum agility in being able to find individuals who have specific skills to deliver a project.
The Associates have addressed this by building and maintaining specialist groups with specific skill sets. PWC recently found that nearly 50% of HR managers accept that up to 20% of their workforce will be contract staff and this is likely to grow in the future.
Permanent recruitment requires more rigor as the skill set is the baseline, but it’s certainly not the full story. The ability to match personality, capability for growth and behaviours with the client is paramount in finding a long term fit for the business. We have found that the most cost effective way of doing so, is through our retained search model, which ensures the best experience of the hiring process is achieved, for both client and candidate.
This is backed by a one (1) year free replacement guarantee. Our successful candidates have a 96% retention rate within the first year and 90% for the second year. These are previously unheard of figures.
WHY US …… because we care and are already thinking and conscious of all of the deeper elements around hiring staff, getting the best out of candidates. We look for people that are looking for the same things, share the same values that our client have.
We look to save our clients’ money by providing long term employees, people that are likely to stay with the client not just to deliver a single piece of work but for the long term as they share the same ethics, standards and ethos. Many may grow into other more senior roles, developing their career within the client or pass on the Intellectual Property that they have gained to a wider team. This saves our clients having to spend and re-spend on hiring replacement people. Sometimes this can be “twice an employee’s salary to find and train a replacement” according to the Wall street Journal. Retention is the key to lower recruitment spend and improve ROI, rigor is the key to “getting it right first time”.
