Recruitment from a client's perspective
Looking at the recruitment needs from the client's perspective is all-important to the whole team at Victoria Lewis.
"It's all too often trotted out that it's about understanding the client's needs, their company and their culture but it's also about more than that. Offering a flexible yet personal and customised service," explains Alison Grundy, Senior Consultant.
"We put great significance in visiting and building a relationship with a client. That way we can explain to the candidate not only the job and skills required, but also the exact type of work, the office environment and the people they'll work alongside. Psychometric testing, first-round interviews and interview facilities here at our offices can all be organised," explains Alison.
Which gives the benefit to clients of achieving a successful, and on-going, staff placement with a much-reduced chance of the candidate leaving within weeks or months.
The recruitment company operates a comprehensive search database that results in a fast turnaround of well-matched candidates. Selected candidates are skills tested, advised on interview techniques and encouraged to carry out additional research on their prospective employer.
"We like to give them a feeling of ownership and responsibility for their performance. At the end of the day, we're all eager to achieve a successful result. That's what we're here for," concludes Alison.
