We take on many of the functions of a traditional human resources department. This ensures candidates are ‘managed’ and do not ‘slip through the net.’ For
ease, we have divided the process into four stages: Attraction and sourcing; screening and selection; cultural fit and mapping; and placement and aftercare.
Attraction and Sourcing
We work with the leading organisations and as a result are able to attract the best candidates. Our clients know we will always provide them with the highest
calibre of candidate and provide support to retain these individuals in the recruitment process. This, in turn, has meant we have a stable forward-looking long-
term business and have kept our brand strength. We have a number of ways we attract candidates:
Candidate Sourcing and Attraction
Search Online Networking Campaigns Database Print
- Client branded - 130, 000 candidates
- Contacts - Specialist
- Target skills - Job boards - Microsite live
- Referrals - National
- Target companies - CV sites - Award winning in- - Billboarding
- Sister companies - Preferred rates
house Marketing - Exclusive clients
Figure 1: Candidate sourcing and attraction
We also talent spot or pipeline candidates when they register with us. This means we flag them as suitable for our clients and this aids in succession planning
and speed of delivery. This is also extensively used in campaigns or for key clients. Additionally, we often headhunt or use search and selection methods for
executive level roles. We have dedicated resourcing teams for each functional area. In addition, we will also use a hybrid model between traditional recruitment
and headhunting as part our service for non-executive roles. This means candidates are more likely to be exclusive.
There are a number of online campaigns we can run on behalf of you across the websites we currently advertise with. All jobs go on to the following websites in
lineage format (i.e. just text), plus specialist websites for specific disciplines:

New Horizon Recruitment’s market position means a significant proportion of candidates can be obtained by relationships with other candidates & clients, and our
approach for you would be to use this route to get the highest quality applicants. This in turn has generated a strong database of candidates, with over 60% of
our revenue coming from repeat business from both clients and candidates.
We promote a diverse pool of candidates through our diversity policies, including:
‘Skills first’ basis
Leverage global presence
Board level sponsorship and dedicated Steering Committee ensure best practice
Legal team to guide and advise on current and upcoming legislation
Bespoke reporting according to client’s requirements
Affiliations and accreditations all illustrate an ongoing engagement with industry best practice
Screening and Selection
Our procedures and processes are robust, we also have an in-house business process team to ensure we are process driven to select the best candidates to
submit to you. Screening is both thorough and rigorous, with an available dedicated reference team providing any background checks required by you.
1. Screening 2. Assessment 3. Selection 4. Candidate Management
Referencing: Proof of ID, CRB, Testing - hard and soft skills: Cultural / personality mapping Ongoing neutral point of contact to
degree and qualification checks RightResult / SHL (psychometric Knowledge of candidate and client support human resources team
Consultants’ knowledge of both testing) and resolve any issues
candidate and legal arena Competency based interviewing – expediently
Telephone screening for efficiency face-to-face
Table 1: Filtering candidates: The screening and selection process
All of our Consultants are trained in Competency Based Interview techniques which focus on tangible experience and provide qualitative and quantitative analysis
from an interview. This gives all candidates an equal opportunity to demonstrate their suitability in terms of experience, skills and personality for the role. We use
an organisation specialising in psychometric testing. They are specialist in this area and we can provide demonstrations, if needed. We meet our candidates at
least once before they meet your hiring team. Our consultants are extremely experienced in interview scenarios but we also have an in-house training and
development team to keep the Consultants updated on best practice.

We have in-house software to test this sort of skill. This is also available online for ease. We can test any skill sets at varying levels and build a custom
programme for you from over 500 possible tests.
Cultural Fit and Mapping
Through dedicated fields of practice, our consultants become subject matter experts on the candidate markets, clients and general industry. This benefits both
the client and the candidate, giving a knowledgeable, neutral point of view. Our consultants then use this knowledge to ‘map’ clients and candidates, leading to
higher candidate retention rates.
We have a very structured approach to how we present the roles to our candidates.
The first stage of this process is to meet the line manager and visit the site where the person would be working. From this meeting we would ascertain the
Turnover, Office locations and Group companies
Product and proposition portfolio
Company and product unique selling points
Individual personalities of those involved in the hiring process.
Salary, bonus and benefits package
Potential for flexible working
Potential the role has in terms of promotional opportunities, training and future opportunities within group
Geographical location / potential travel opportunities
Short, middle and long term business plan of the organisation
Company mission statement and core values
Negative aspects to the role i.e. politics, difficult customers, product deficiencies etc
All candidates are met and all basic company information such as turnover and product portfolio, unique selling points and mission statements will be discussed.
During the interview we would also discuss the personalities and culture within the specific department that the candidate would be working in, as well as the
wider global view and match this with the candidates needs. We tend to find that candidates will have several “hot buttons” which are pivotal to their search for
the next role and can be ascertained through our competency based interviewing techniques. If the role matches those key drivers, we would then make a strong
alignment between candidate and organisation and role. This includes and ensures the negative aspects of the role are covered and not glossed over. We find
that candidates are much more inclined to accept the role and not come across any surprises further down the line if this honest approach is taken.

Placement and Aftercare
We work as business partner and neutral point of contact between our client and candidate. This often serves to quickly iron out any small problems as everyone
feels comfortable. This in turn leads to a higher retention rate for our placed staff. Aftercare is very important and we often speak to candidates well into six to
twelve months of starting their new roles. As a standard form when we place candidates in a business, we will call them on their first day after their first week and
then after one month. With more senior candidates we would take them out for lunch, after one month of service. This allows us to get an idea of how things are
in an informal environment as well as enabling us to give feedback to the client on any potential issues the candidate is facing.
This is mirrored in our relationship with you. For example, if a successful candidate does not perform as well as anticipated in the role we will always want to work
with you to understand why this has been the case and what improvements can be made in future.
Value Added Services
We consider ourselves to be industry leaders and exemplary in the service we provide to our clients. We consider ourselves to be business partners to our clients
and as such provide a highly consultative service. In addition, we also provide a host of other associated added-value benefits to complement our core
recruitment service. We would be happy to provide further information or case studies to further illustrate any of the following services:
Market reviews and updates, salary benchmarking, surveys and compensation consultancy
Development and preparation of role specifications
Full range of media guidance including national, trade, local, radio, Internet etc
Organisation of open days/evenings
Competency-based interviewing, technical and psychometric testing
Selection and assessment centres
Breakfast briefings (e.g. diversity, legal issues in recruitment)
Onsite recruitment capability and expertise in newer delivery models, such as managed services
