Attracting and recruiting talent can be challenging, so it is important that you partner with a company that has the necessary experience and flexible approach to help you get the right people at the right time.
Skillnet Personnel sets itself apart by always focussing on your needs and challenges when considering an individual’s skills and talent.
Whether we are looking for a single person for a permanent or contract engagement or an entire team to work on large projects, we concentrate on providing end-to-end people services across your business.
Permanent search assignments
We appreciate that every company and every role is unique. Accordingly we will tailor our approach depending on your specific requirements, needs and wishes. Once we have the necessary information and knowledge, we will follow a structured approach to sourcing, filtering and presenting the very best candidates for you to consider.
Once we have generated a long list, a Senior Consultant will conduct an interview and assessment with candidates, using tried and tested techniques to establish and verify employment history, technical ability, personality traits, culture and their career goals and motivations. Our personal and consultative approach with all candidates helps us to fill your role in the most appropriate and effective way.
Depending on your specific requirements, verbal and/or written references are obtained for every candidate. These can be a combination of former employers, past or present peers, or via our known and trusted network from across the industry.
Every candidate is fully briefed on each role before they are presented to you to ensure that they understand the role, what your expectations of them will be, and to ascertain that they are genuinely interested in pursuing the opportunity.
During the search and selection process, we will gain invaluable market intelligence regarding industry reputations and outside perceptions of your company, which we will happily share with you for information and consideration.
Under retained recruitment conditions, Skillnet Personnel acts as a fully 'outsourced' recruitment arm of your organisation. Our processes are tailored to meet your specific needs, through detailed consultation and ongoing communication.
Every retained assignment we undertake is supported with a detailed written proposal or Statement of Works (SOW). This outlines the scope of work, fee structure and the mutual responsibility of both parties. In such engagements, Skillnet Personnel takes responsibility for the recruitment process and liaises with regular update and feedback sessions to ensure collaboration and a successful outcome.
On appointment, a named Senior Account Manager is allocated to you for the duration of the assignment. The recruitment process that we use is rigorous and a detailed search is conducted to find, screen and interview ideal candidates. Once a short list is determined, Skillnet Personnel will present this to you and liaise with candidates about interviews.
The standard fee structure is commensurate with the retained assignment results. Clients pay one-third of the fee on engagement and commencement of the assignment; one-third upon delivery of a short list; and the balance upon successful placement of the ideal candidate – the performance based retainer.
