Marketing Recruitment's ethos is simple...giving clients what they want;

  • A consultancy with a track record of success over many years...right people, right place, right time.
  • Competitive fees and terms coupled with an experienced professional who will get to know your business, your needs, your culture, your team and is willing to establish a long term relationship.
  • A consultancy that knows the market, has the right connections and will find the right people - those that will add value to your business.  It's about knowing the best talent in the market, not just who's on the market.
  • Efficiency, flexibility and timeliness of response.
  • Confirming every agreement in writing.
  • Giving top priority to each assignment and maintaining agreed time-lines.
  • Trustworthiness, professionalism, honesty and ethics.

The process;

Consult closely with the client to determine their exact requirements such as "cultural fit", skill and education levels and the most important core competencies.  

Importantly, the brief should include a summary of the hiring manager of the key challenges or projects the role will need to meet or achieve over the next few years. 

  • Develop target lists of potential candidates and industry sources to identify candidates in the passive market and, where appropriate, media advertising.
  • Detailed discussion with selected candidates about the opportunity and assessment of their career objectives, motivations and competencies.
  • Development of the short-list and presentation to the client.
  • Arrangement of client/candidate interviews and follow-up assessments.
  • Conducting detailed reference checking of candidates and arranging psychometric testing if required.
  • Negotiating an offer and managing the candidate's expectations and acceptance.
  • Regular periodic follow-up with clients and candidates after employment has commenced.
