Candidate Screening

Research tells us that more than 50% of all new hires fail. At a cost of 150% of annual salary this is to be avoided. This is why we focus most of our effort at the beginning of the recruitment process. Recruitment with us is treated as a project and our project approach is heavily front loaded, with a lot of time spent with our customers planning and creating contingencies.

Our early project time is heavily invested in detailed role profiling, understanding the need and what the perfect fit will look like. In creating the role profile, we will meet with the key stakeholders, get an impression of the key individuals, we will listen carefully, meet with the team to understand the dynamics and build an organisational culture assessment.

When reviewing applicants – we will assess the relevance of the CV to the role applied for, the flow of the CV, the quality of the presentation (spelling, grammar, and general literacy.) and we will note carefully any date gaps.
