Void Acoustics

Talent Seeker have helped us during a period of expanding our marketing department. Matt and his team go that extra mile to search for candidates that match the brief, and they provide excellent summaries of each candidate which goes beyond just their CV, demonstrating why they are suitable candidates to be interviewed. I have dealt with many recruiters previously and Talent Seeker are amongst the best, so would highly recommend!

The Doctors Clinic Group

I could not recommend Matt enough from both candidate and the employer perspective. He has helped me to find my next role and he continues to support my current organisation with fulfilling our recruitment needs. He is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and has great communication skills. I am glad I can continue my working relationship with Matt and if you haven't worked with him yet - do not wait as you are missing out!

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.

working together.

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.

This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Research relevant qualifications and membership bodies
  • Research key words from the job description/person specification

  • 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.
