The War for Talent

We try not to over-complicate this process. So we start at the most basic level – 
we talk to our Hot Lists of people we already know. Many of the candidates we’ll propose will have worked for us successfully before and our database continues to expand through constant advertising, ‘word of mouth’ referrals and access to all the world's medias, totalling several million contacts.

In the social network world that we are all now in, the war for talent is no longer just knowing someone's name, or even having their contact details. Indeed, many people we propose are often known to the client - despite being a global industry, its a small world. So a great deal of our work is staying in touch with high performing Engineers and Project Professionals across the globe as they carry out projects, ensuring we are in touch with them as they complete them and become available for their next assignment, and understand their motivation due to our relationship.

As well as identifying the best talent, as we have technical backgrounds, we only shortlist candidates who truly match your criteria - both technical and character. This means our clients don’t have to involve themselves with the time-consuming parts of recruitment - advertising response, shortlisting, reference taking, first interviews. Our recruitment consultants understand technology, and understand recruitment. They are reassuring, credible, and give great service.

Our ISO9001:2008 Recruitment Process

We appreciate clients have many avenues to conduct their recruitment campaigns, including doing it themsleves. Our tried-and-tested approach to Energy recruitment is a business service which delivers results to commercial deadlines, from enquiry, to interview, to start.

We begin our process by acknowledging your assignment and discussing the brief with you and advising any hurdles, before advertising the vacancy on all available medias and speaking to our candidate lists and networks, checking qualifications, experience and references. Our target is to submit our shortlist of interested and suitable candidates within two weeks - often we will be able to do this sooner. For very hard to find assignments we may keep the assignment open for months and escalate services. We will arrange and confirm all interviews, and stay-in-tough throughout the recruitment process, giving feedback on both sides, and managing expectations.

Once we receive a client offer, we immediately relay this to the selected candidate. Depending on the candidate’s location and time zone, we aim to receive acceptance and relay this back, with all the informaton for the contract to be raised, within 24 hours, staying in touch until they start.
