1. Client Briefing and Benchmarking
Initial client meeting, evaluation and analysis of brief, creation of assignment specification, plan of action agreed and company culture investigated.
2. Sourcing Talent
We show our value by providing good quality candidates. We use LinkedIn and jobsites, along with our own connections, research and direct approach. If we want to create a rapport with a target candidate, we will, because that’s what we do as recruiters. Some of the methods we use:
Headhunting — We find talent by being on the lookout at all times. We know that talented people are in high demand, so we use social networks, referrals, recommendations and word of mouth.
Talent Mapping — We identify all the people who would make ideal candidates. Then we pitch the opportunity to them. Most of these people would never apply for a new job, but when we say we’ve got a job we know you’ll love, they listen.
Database — Our database of candidates has been built over many years, with meticulous care and attention to detail. Unlike larger recruiting agencies, we only work with the best applicants. Our placement rate is first class because we only put forward quality people with real potential.
— A great consultant is a great networker. We make it our business to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the market. Networking
Account Management — Our focus is on building relationships and connecting people. We reduce confusion by maintaining a single point of contact with our clients. Cressida Ward runs the business and is hands-on with every placement. You don’t get somebody down the line to deal with your precious business. You get Cressida and her 15 plus years of domestic and international recruitment experience, and her skills as a professional counsellor.
3. Pitching the opportunity
We don’t just make your company stand out from the competition, we package and sell the chance to work for your organization. We leverage our regional network to seek out ‘best-in-class’ talent to fill your needs. Filling talent pipelines is our passion – we love to meet new and exciting people. CW Recruitment & Consulting leaves nothing to chance. Skill does not guarantee performance. We identify the people with the will to produce results. Then we make sure they fit into your Culture. First, we identify the best match from our talent network. Then we align shortlisted candidates with the company culture and the expectations for the role using our talent management strategies. The result is extraordinary.
