This Recruitment Service Scaled Up their Dream Team
Predictable Recruitment for Growth Mode
“We were wasting a lot of time and effort on interviews and still had trouble finding candidates, still had a couple of bad hires. We needed a recruiter to hire our dream team, and to help us build a reliable, repeatable recruitment process to fuel ongoing growth.” This is what business owners often tell us when they contact us.
|Recruitment meets HR Consulting||Start by designing the role correctly, then recruit.|
|Recruiting for growth||We understand start-ups and growth companies, the culture, the rapid shifts, and how to hire people that thrive.|
|Save time||Of course we save you the leg-work of posting jobs, screening resumes and phone screens. We also won’t waste your time with candidates you won’t hire.|
|High success rate||Only 2 roles did not close in the last 2 years|
|Low, predictable cost||Others will charge $200/hr or 30% of first year salary. We charge a fixed fee or a monthly retainer|
A reliable way to attract the right candidates
We recruit candidates from our networks, your networks and using digital marketing techniques like multivariate testing, posting strategy and keyword optimization (say what? A recruitment firm that understands marketing?)
A system to stay organized and never miss an opportunity
job before you took action? Never again, friend! Everyone can use our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) together and our recruiters make sure nothing slips by. Our ATS synchs with your calendar, your email, your job boards, and records notes/evaluations about each candidate in the pipeline.
Avoid bad hires and close the deal with confidence every time
Experience from 1000’s of interviews helps us see the bad eggs and capture the best. Skills, fact, metric and personality tests ensure fit. Our negotiation experience means we’ll know how to best present the offer and close the deal.
