Most frequent questions and answers

Many companies have internal recruitment processes, but there are many valid reasons why a business should use a recruitment agency to hire finance staff.  The benefits of using a reliable and trustworthy recruitment company ultimately boils down to saving time, money, and increased search quality.

The key advantages for using a recruitment agency are listed below:

  1. Faster recruitment times: Greater resources at our disposal, more man power,  specialist technology and dedicated candidate databases
  2. No win, no fee: you only pay if we actually find the right person, and they start work.
  3. Financial Guarantees: You are protected with a 30 day free replacement guarantee your risk.
  4. Market Knowledge: We have a greater understanding of the local job market and can reach local candidates faster and more discreetly
  5. Candidate Management: Part of our job is to manage the candidate’s expectations and this can put the employer in a stronger position, particularly when it comes to negotiation.
  6. Big Marketing Budgets: We have a 4 figure marketing budget across major job sites and databases for each job role we search for. If we fail to find the right person for your role, we lose money, so the recruiter takes on the initial financial risk.

  8. Reference Checks:  We ensure candidates are technically and culturally suitable and take to time to speak to previous employers.
