It is almost a cliché – you can train skills but you can’t train personality. Our aim is to not only understand the role we’re recruiting but to understand exactly what our clients are trying to achieve by employing someone. What are the personalities of the team, what is the personality of the Manager, what are the non tangible attributes our client is looking for? Recruiting can either be an exhausting and frustrating exercise or an easy and even enjoyable process – our aim is for the latter. This is achieved by finding people who not only have the skill base but are also the “right” fit. We ensure applicants are seeking remuneration within a clients budget so that when the successful candidate is offered the role, they will accept!
Something that is often overlooked by recruiters but which Evolution Group consider extremely important is that recruiting a role is not just about making the placement. It’s also about what happens after and ensuring the work goes in before hand so our client’s lives as managers are made as enjoyable as possible. We understand there is significant risk when employing staff and the stress that can be caused if a client gets it wrong. By using the Extended DISC range of behavioural tools, full and complete referencing, in depth interviewing of candidates by experienced recruiters and testing, we aim to reduce as much risk as possible. By understanding candidate weaknesses and sometimes uncovering ‘cobwebs in closets’, we allow our clients to make informed decisions and provide an extremely open and honest appraisal. Our approach has been described as “refreshing” and to us the only way forward in building long and mutually beneficial relationships is to ensure integrity is a core value.
Strategies for finding potential candidates do vary depending on the role and it is this multi-dimensional approach to candidate attraction that provides the best results. Each role we recruit has its own recruitment plan and these plans are agreed with our clients before the process commences. Clients are kept informed throughout the entire recruitment process and followed up thereafter to ensure our clients get the service they deserve.
