Great people deliver great service and we deliver great people
We have a single aim: providing the right people for the right role.
We cannot do this without our own set of professional standards.
Our ethical process begins with the decision to accept an assignment. We never accept a role that we do not feel we will be able to fill with the strongest candidate. At best, this is a waste of everyone’s time, and at worst it could be disastrous for an individual’s career, your organisation and our reputation.
Is the job description/personal specification a true reflection of the role? We invest considerable time understanding a requirement to ensure we attract the right people. This includes a thorough analysis of the job description and an assessment of all influencing factors, including the potential for growth, the workplace culture and team dynamics.
We examine the qualifications/eligibility criteria for the role – is it a wide range or relatively narrow? The former may need narrowing down and being too specific reduces the candidate pool and may also mean potentially excluding or discriminating against otherwise qualified individuals.
In a candidate driven market, we work hard to ‘sell’ a role to a potential candidate but will never misrepresent the company, the scope and difficulty of the role, the remuneration or any other key components as this would both delay the recruitment process, but is also highly unethical.
When presenting our candidates, we accompany CVs with a comprehensive candidate profile including the individual’s motivation, strengths and weaknesses and career aspirations.
Recognising that attending an interview can be a very stressful process, we give all candidates a wealth of pre-interview support including interview techniques, comprehensive company background, team structure etc., all of which allows a candidate to perform as confidently as possible and allows them to truly represent themselves.
We remain active and available, for both employees and employers, throughout the lifespan of the search.
Our internal practices are reviewed regularly to ensure transparency and fairness.
