And some things you wouldn’t expect...
We don’t treat people like commodities.
We represent them
We believe that recruitment should be about more than just
putting bums on seats. We take a long term view.
That means understanding the career aspirations of our
candidates and introducing them to companies and
opportunities where they can be realised.
In turn, our clients get exceptional people who can make a
genuine difference. They are decisive hires.
We work hard to reward and retain the best recruitment
consultants in the business. That’s why we have a market
leading staff retention rate.
As a result, our clients get to work with dedicated account
managers. People who know their business inside out and
understand their changing recruitment needs. They will do
more than just find you the perfect candidates. Salary
surveys, training and business consultancy are all part of the
package, if you want them.
Our candidates get a better service too. They aren’t passed
from consultant to consultant as the faces change. Every one
gets a single contact who works closely with them to
genuinely represent their interests. Securing the right career
move isn’t the end either. Help with salary negotiations,
career advice and training are always available.
Sometimes we say ‘No’ (or at least ‘Not yet’)
We don’t pay lip-service to consultancy. We are not afraid
to offer the right advice, even if it is not what our clients and
candidates want to hear.
If we think a recruitment brief is unrealistic, we don’t waste
clients’ time pretending to work on it. We tell them, but we
don’t just walk away. We will work with them to shape a brief
that is achievable, based on the needs of the business and
the skills and experience available in the market.
Our candidates can expect the same approach. If we don’t
think a candidate is ready to make their desired career move,
we won’t risk their future. We tell them they are not ready,
and offer advice on the experience, skills and qualifications
they will need to make any future career move a success.
We don’t waste your time
Finding the right people, or the right job, is time consuming
enough without recruitment companies wasting your time.
Most recruitment companies ask their clients to find the
needle in the haystack. They throw as many CVs as they can
at every vacancy in the hope that one will stick.
We don’t. We take the time to understand our clients’
business needs, and only put forward candidates that fit the
brief. So, whilst we send our clients fewer people, over 75%
of them will progress to interview. All our clients have to do is
decide which is the sharpest needle.
For candidates that means less time saying no to
inappropriate interviews and no time wasted pursuing roles
they have little chance of securing.
We guarantee success
There are no guarantees in recruitment. Except ours.
Definitive Consulting is the only specialist recruitment
consultancy to offer a money back guarantee of success on
retained recruitment assignments.
It’s not as big a risk as it may sound. We have never failed to
fill a role we have worked on a retained basis and we don’t
plan to start now.
Anyway, why shouldn’t our clients share our confidence?
