how we are different.

how different how different

we're an extension to your team

Most companies have recruitment needs, but don’t have enough ongoing vacancies to justify a permanent, full-time Recruitment Manager’s salary…. BUT, let’s be honest, most companies don’t like using recruitment agencies!

In essence, whilst there is a demand for external recruitment services, there is a reluctance to outsource this to high street, sales driven recruitment agencies.

an outsourced headhunter that feels like your own Recruitment Manager

With over 15 years’ headhunting and recruitment experience and FIRP status, you get to deal with a professional, dedicated headhunting expert and not a sales consultant who happens to work in recruitment!

Our recruitment model is unique in the industry and combines best-in-class executive search and resourcing skills, with in-house quality professionalism and engagement.

our 5 pillar promises to you.

We will work with the same level of engagement and professionalism, you would expect from an in-house recruitment team.

01.

We speak with all candidates via phone call, video call, or in person to fully assess their potential suitability for your role, team and culture.

02.

We will only forward candidates to you if we believe they have an excellent chance of being offered a job.

03.

We will act as your brand ambassadors; championing your business and culture at all times.

04.

We will always act in your best interests, not ours.

05.

how we work.

We pride ourselves on our level of professionalism and dedication to headhunting only the very best talent for your business. We are extremely thorough, considered and tenacious and leave no stone unturned in our quest to deliver our 5 pillar promises.

Whilst we can't give away all our ‘trade secrets’ as to how we're able to reach talent other recruitment companies can’t find, we have set out below our 4 stage search and engagement strategy.  This outlines the process we follow and the ways in which we can add value to your talent acquisition strategy and process, should you choose to work with us.

stages

stage 01.

fact find:
your company

Get to know your business on a deeper level than what’s on the company website.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Company history
  • Company culture
  • Company structure
  • Team structure
  • Team dynamics
  • Employee value proposition (EVP)
  • What do the staff particularly like about working there
  • Staff work patterns e.g. office based, hybrid or work from home
  • Future company plans – short, medium and long-term

stage 02.

fact find:
your vacancy

Get to know your vacancy and ideal candidate profile.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Reason for the vacancy – e.g. replacement, new role etc.
  • Role details – salary range, working hours, bonus or commission etc.
  • How does the vacancy sit within the existing team and company structure
  • Essential candidate requirements in terms of skills and experience
  • Preferential skills and experience
  • Ideal personality type for the role and your existing team dynamics

stage 03.

developing your talent pool of suitable candidates

Once we have gained a deep understanding of your company and vacancy, we spend time putting together a robust headhunting strategy to create the strongest possible talent pool of potential candidates.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Research similar job titles
  • Research relevant qualifications and membership bodies
  • Research key words from the job description/person specification
  • Build the most effective and relevant Boolean search strings based on the above information
  • Assess the best social media platforms and CV databases to utilise
  • Apply additional search filters, including industries worked in, companies worked for, number of years’ relevant experience, location, key skills, career achievements, time

Once we have created our talent pool, we will make initial approaches to each candidate with the aim of sparking an initial interest/excitement about your opportunity and company.

stage 04.

shortlist & first
stage interview

We believe in quality over quantity when it comes to sending you suitable candidates.

After reviewing the responses to our initial approaches, we will shortlist the best candidates and book in first stage interviews that we will conduct ourselves.

These will either be done in person, or by video or telephone call to reduce the shortlist down even further.

You will then be sent only the very best suited candidates to interview yourself.

We will only send you candidates if we believe they have a strong chance of being offered the job.

Once you have chosen the candidate you would like to recruit, we will work closely with you on the salary negotiations to reach a conculsion that all parties are happy with.

In summary, we will do everything we can to provide you with the very best candidates and recruitment support, whilst saving you time and money in your recruitment process.

I've had an absolutely fantastic candidate experience with Talent Seeker.  Matt was attentive, informative, and supportive throughout the recruitment process. I always knew what was happening and had a clear time-frame for next steps.  And, to top it off, he was always friendly and kind. I genuinely felt like he wanted me to find a job I loved as much as I did!  One of the best recruitment experiences I've had by a mile!

Talent Seeker helped me find a career that I am extremely happy to be a part of. Matt contacted me quickly after I applied for the role, and it quickly unfolded that my now employer wanted to set up a face to face interview. Post interview, Matt followed up soon after to ask me how it went and what I thought of the role. I'd highly recommend Talent Seeker to provide great service to those both looking to employ and those looking for the right career.

I cannot thank Talent Seeker enough.  They really helped me in seeking out two amazing candidates for our new position as operations manager. I found Matt very professional, and I feel he went over and above to find me the perfect candidate and help me with different aspects. The person I chose was such a good fit I offered her a full-time contract and our charity is thriving with her in post.

During my time as Head of Marketing for PPP, Talent Seeker worked in partnership with  me to build a highly skilled and award winning Marketing Team.  Working with them was a dream, they took time to understand the DNA and culture of our business and we collaborated closely throughout the entire process.  I am now setting up my own business and Talent Seeker will be the first company I contact to build my team.

I had the pleasure of working with Matthew between 2014 - 2019 and I have to say it was a breath of fresh air in an industry that has let me down in the past. Matthew sourced top quality candidates who went on to be in the top 5% performers at Purlplebricks in terms of performance, attitude and delivery of service.

Talent Seeker really took the time to understand our business, our culture and our skills requirements. Rather than sifting through piles of unsuitable CVs, we were presenting only with candidates that were a great fit for us and we confidently progressed to interview and offer. The whole process was highly professional and efficient, saving me valuable time. I highly recommend.
