Claire was recommended to me by a recruiting manager of another company and I met with her to discuss our requirements. Claire is probably the most dynamic recruiter I have ever met. She has so much energy and desire to succeed. As a consequence she has recruited some high quality individuals for us and continues to do so. I have no hesitation in recommending Claire to any organisation. She delivers what she says she will and is a real pleasure to deal with. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she always works incredibly hard on our behalf.
Hiring is costly and time-consuming. There’s no guarantee you’ll have the right person at the end. Did you know that 46% of all new hires fail within 18 months? And that in 82% of cases, hiring managers could have avoided recruiting the wrong candidate by simply acting on the signs?
If you’ve felt the frustrations of going through the motions and expense of hiring only to find you recruited the wrong person, then it’s not your fault. While there are clues, it’s not always easy to pick up on them, especially when your day job’s not in HR. Furthermore, you probably only met the candidate once or twice before making the decision to take them on.
When interviewees know they’re being observed, they’ll be on their best behaviour, but our well-honed skills in identifying human behaviours mean we can suss out the real deal from the fake.
Ultimately this means you can get on with your job without taking time out to write and post advertisements, sift through CVs (did you know the average job posts receive 100 applications?) and then conduct initial interviews.
On the other hand, what if you don’t get 100 applications? You only get two or three to choose from? We have a candidate database and know where to look for top-quality talent who haven’t even seen your ad and aren’t even looking for a new job. Then we convince them to make the move and apply. Never again will you have to “scrape the bottom of the barrel”, “pick the best of a bad bunch” or even take your job ad down and do without for a few more months. We’ve filled vacancies that our competitors haven’t been able to because we know what we’re looking for and where to look.
