Recruiting is never an easy task; it takes a lot more than typing up a job description and screening of resumes to find that perfect candidate. High-quality candidates get hired instantly, and it can be difficult to attract them to a new job. Candidate quality is almost always an issue, particularly in a dynamic economy where new technologies, global economic awareness and high educational requirements are in huge demand. Sometimes the hiring process itself takes a long time and the best candidates might opt to take a job from another firm. Many firms do not have a human resource strategy and instead simply seek a new employee when there’s a vacancy. This can decrease their access in the recruitment pool and make it even more difficult to recruit a good employee when there’s a vacancy.
Contacts & Management provides simple yet effective hiring solutions, which are guaranteed to suit the needs of your organization- still don’t believe us, we will show you how.
Our Recruiting Techniques
Advertising Based Recruitment
It starts with placing an advertisement in the appropriate newspapers, columns or online media in order to attract those candidates that are currently actively looking for jobs. The recruitment consultant will usually make a pre-selection of candidates by conducting preliminary interviews which will help with the final selection of candidates.
Recruitment or Headhunting
In this technique the headhunter or agency will pass CV’s on to the clients, leaving it up to them to conduct the first round of interviews, establish a shortlist, get references, make a final selection of candidates, negotiate upon compensation packages and finalize the employment contract. This is often used for lower level positions.
Executive Search is performed on a retained fee basis. The recruiting firm not only sources candidates but conducts the interviews, gets references (if desired) and helps the client throughout the entire hiring process. It is important to note that in a retained search you are paying for the time and expertise of the search firm.
Contacts & Management follows certain professional ethics such as the no touch agreement. We will not contact any employee from our client´s database for a position with someone else, neither will we approach the person we placed for another position. If desired, this can be incorporated into a search agreement. We consider our clients to still be in touch with us for a period of 2 years after the last project we have undertaken for the client. Candidates placed will never be approached by us.
