Excellent results through our recruitment profiling tools

We are proud of achieving excellent results for our clients through our variety of recruitment tools. For short-term assignments we know that the best way to fulfil roles is to source candidates who are the best match for your requirements. For long-term roles, we use a variety of profiling tools which will help us assess the real value they can provide to your organisation, alongside analysing whether a role matches the personality of the candidate.
The software we use includes empathy profiling, motivational mapping and occupational strength assessment. This range of profiling techniques enables us to assess areas such as social perception and behavioural strengths. We believe in presenting candidates to you who match both your business requirements and their own long-term aims. This means that you benefit from candidates who excel within your workplace culture and a lower staff turnover.

Employer FAQ’s

We pride ourselves on providing an efficient and effective recruitment service, so we believe our recruitment process is extremely simple to use. As an experienced team, we know how important it is for all potential candidates to complete our screening and compliance checks, alongside our unique series of personality tests, before being added to our register. We currently have a list of over 4000 potential candidates who are ready to fill roles.

We also take the time to understand the intricacies of our clients’ businesses – we get to know the teams, the workplace culture and the future goals of the business. We use these details together with the work history, education, qualifications and career aims of our candidates to match them to roles, where we know they will make a significant contribution to the organisation. Throughout the whole process we will work with you on a one-to-one basis, so that at every stage you clearly understand exactly what is happening.

We spend time really getting to know your business, so that we can completely understand your unique employment requirements. We are proud to go the extra mile for both employers and candidates, by finding employment matches which really suit the culture and requirements of an organisation, alongside a candidate’s own personality traits and ambitions. 

To do this we use a variety of techniques such as our candidate profiling tools, which help us get to know our candidates so that we can find the perfect match for your business. These assessments form a comprehensive personality test which helps us to predict whether a candidate will succeed in a role, rather than relying on a single interview which can often provide inconclusive insights.

We have a 100% fulfilment rate and in the 50 years we have been operating we have never lost a client. We consider ourselves to be the market leader in Swindon and the surrounding area and will always provide support to both businesses and candidates throughout the recruitment process and beyond.

We pride ourselves on getting to know our clients and building long-term relationships with them. By understanding your business, we are ideally positioned to locate the best candidates for new roles quickly and easily. We understand that staffing is always unpredictable – a member of staff could leave at short notice or a new project may require a whole new team. By always being on hand, we are ready to fill your vacancies with experienced candidates who we know will suit your business.

With over 4000 registered candidates we can supply anything from 1 employee to a large team of 1000 employees, and we can even provide next day placements. We ensure that all pre-employment checks are carried out before a placement, including referencing, qualification checks and right to work investigations. Our team even complete a unique series of personality tests, which help us to ensure we supply candidates who are ideally matched to your business environment.

It is our mission to find the best possible candidates for your business, so we use a number of trusted techniques to ensure a successful placement. We are proud of our 100% fulfilment rate, although there is always a chance that a new employee might not be the best fit for you. We are committed to exceeding our clients’ expectations at every stage, so if an employee is not suitable, we will do our best to find you a new candidate.

This could be achieved through delving a little deeper into the day-to-day operations of your business, the team and the culture. It could be that a change in your organisation means that the candidate we placed is no longer suited to the role. By providing you with your own recruitment consultant we will endeavour to establish exactly why the original employee was not suitable, so that we can find an alternative candidate who will provide a great contribution to your organisation.

As a locally based company, if you are looking for a specific candidate for a role there is a high possibility that the person is already registered with us. With over 4000 candidates registered on our site, we have access to many people in the area with experience in commercial and industrial roles. Our database is the first place we will search, as these candidates have all been through our pre-employment screening process and are ready to start working.

We also have an excellent network of contacts through social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The specific candidate you are searching for may be a part of our network, which continues to expand daily. By contacting the particular person you have in mind we can begin the recruitment process. We’ll establish whether they are looking for a position and make them aware of the role you may be able to provide.

No, we understand how busy our clients are so will always arrange an initial meeting at your premises or a phone call. By visiting your business and providing a one-to-one service, we can take the pressure away from you, allowing you the time to focus on your important tasks. Once the initial visit is complete, we can communicate with you via phone or email – this ensures you benefit from a quick response whenever you need it.

A key part of our professional recruitment process is getting to know the way our clients’ businesses operate in terms of culture, objectives, team size and even layout. By carrying out a visit to your business, we can understand what makes your company unique. It helps us match you to candidates whose personalities and skills will help them excel in your environment.
