Monarch Presentation

  1. 1. Monarch Recruitment
  2. 2. 1. Our organisation Monarch Recruitment is an established specialist brand within the IT recruitment market. It is a name associated with trust and, as an organisation, we encourage new ideas and methods. These are vital elements in our successful dealings with our clients and we know that our readiness to adopt and implement new ideas has been instrumental in placing us at the top of our industry. Monarch recognises that companies need evidence and assurances that they will be working with a partner that can provide the range and quality of IT staff needed to service current and future requirements. We believe that we have evidenced this capability by showing we operate an extensive IT database (ITRIS) which has been updated consistently for over 17 years and holds the details of in excess of 500,000 candidates based throughout the UK and 150,000 candidates’ currently seeking opportunities. The database is added to daily as we identify new candidates who fit the broad requirements of our clients. Monarch Recruitment has consultants who work within regional teams, each team covering a geographical area within the UK. These are divided as follows: • Midlands • South of England • London • North of England • Thames Valley • Wales • Scotland • South West Within each geographical team are a number of consultants of varying seniority, each of which specialise in a particular technical market e.g. Microsoft Technologies. This detailed industry knowledge means we have unrivalled candidate delivery capability and can also provide valuable consultancy to our clients on which local skills are available. In addition, where skills shortfalls become evident, our staff can immediately instigate candidate attraction strategies aimed at ensuring we can consistently provide the staff required by our clients. In addition to the geographical specialisation of consultants, Monarch also has a UK Major Accounts Team which focuses on the provision of services to our largest clients ensuring excellent customer provision and dedicated resources. Our applicants to permanent / contractor / temporary placement conversion rates are among the best in the industry: Permanent Contract CV to Interview 5:3 CV to interview 5:4 Interview to offer 3:1 Interview to contract 3:2 Of the 526 permanent candidates Monarch placed during the 12 months from April 2008 to March 2009 only 1.5% left their employment within the first 8 weeks and the average length of tenure for these candidates is 3 years and 7 months.
  3. 3. Our focus is to ensure we provide our clients with an all-encompassing recruitment service designed to meet the businesses current and future needs. To achieve this, Monarch has focused its attention on evidencing: • A cost effective solution • Detailed Management information and assistance with demand planning • Continuous service improvements and process efficiencies • Continuous improvement in the quality of hire and time to hire • Robust governance and full legal compliance • Best practice framework for resourcing and workforce management • Assistance with diversity initiatives • Access to subject matter experts We firmly believe this proposal represents the very best and most cost effective recruitment solution designed to meet the requirements of your business. 2.

  4. 4. 3. Analysis of current candidate pool A strong brand has been a key factor in Monarch’s ability to attract and deliver the quantity and quality of candidates our customers require. A high profile advertising strategy over the last 17 years has ensured a constant stream of high quality IT professionals registering with us. Many of the candidates on the Monarch database have worked for Monarch on numerous occasions on contracts or have returned for their next permanent career move. IT professionals favour the use of the internet when looking for work. It is for this reason that our marketing department and advertising resources specifically focus on this media. Our commitment to continuous investment and utilisation of digital media is a strategic business priority. As previously stated Monarch has a candidate pool in excess of 500,000 candidates of which over 150,000 are actively seeking opportunities. As a brand, Monarch constantly invests in its technology in order to provide the highest standards in quality and performance in searching for candidates and to ensure all aspects of the recruitment cycle are fully covered.
