Permanent Search Assignments
We appreciate that each company and each individual role is different and unique. Accordingly we will tailor our approach to suit each role depending on your specific requirements, needs and wishes. Fundamentally however once we have the necessary information and knowledge, Skillnet Personnel 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 each candidate 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, effective and expedient manner.
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 through 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 – nothing frustrates ore than a timewaster!
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 and the process is tailored to meet your specific needs, through detailed consultation and ongoing communication.
Every retained assignment that 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 senior account manager is designated to the client for the duration of the assignment. The recruitment process that we use is rigorous and a detailed search is conducted to find ideal candidates, who are then subjected to a comprehensive screening and interview process. Once a short list is determined, Skillnet Personnel will present this to the client and liaise to conduct interviews.
The standard fee structure is commensurate with the retained assignment results with the client paying 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.
