"When our existing job advert and agencies weren’t attracting the right calibre of junior sales staff, we turned to Recart’s consultative model and, so far, have achieved two hires in six months. Rather than just being a typical agency chasing a fee, Recart’s model helped maximise our chances of hiring directly, through their advertising service, before providing us with a more direct headhunting approach when necessary. The advert service delivered real value for money: it was a completely new advert based on a thorough job take-on interview; it sold our brand and honed in on our purpose and potential rather than just packing keywords around job descriptions, duties and requirements; and it filled the vacancy for a fee far cheaper than we’d have paid if an agency had found the same candidate. For another position, the pool of candidates generated from the advert didn’t lead to us finding a suitable hire, so we progressed with Recart to proactive headhunting and they successfully filled the position via a retained assignment. We have been impressed with Recart’s consultative approach to working with us, and with the quality of time-efficiency. The advertising service generated a pool of candidates for us to do our own search, and, later, their targeted recruitment approach gave us a shortlist of four pre-screened, suitable candidates – from which we made another hire."
