The first step in our recruitment process is to thoroughly understand your business needs and requirements. Our team will schedule a telephone meeting with you to understand the key requirements for the position, the company culture, and other factors affecting the recruitment process. This helps us develop a personalised recruitment strategy for you.

Once we have an understanding of your requirements, we will create a job advertisement to attract the right candidates. We use a range of job portals, social media, and other targeted advertising strategies to ensure we reach a wide range of potential candidates.

Our team will then screen potential candidates through a series of interviews, ensuring that they match your job requirements, have the necessary skills and experience, and are the right cultural fit for your company. We will share relevant candidate profiles with you, and schedule interviews with chosen candidates.

We will work with both you and the candidate to negotiate the salary and other relevant details, ensuring that both parties are happy with the offer. Once a candidate is selected, we’ll begin their onboarding process, which includes all pre-employment checks and assessments.
