The 5 Stage Process
  • Stage 1 The first and most important step is to understand your particular company culture and decide how best to find a candidate who not only fits in terms of their knowledge and skills, but who also has the same "cultural fit" as you.
  • Stage 2 We draw up a job specification and draft advertisement (where appropriate) which reflects the position on offer and which will sell the position to our proposed audience of IT professionals, in terms and language that they understand.
  • Stage 3 We then carefully select applicants for initial interview by Rapport. This is a two-way process where the applicant explains their suitability while we in turn brief them on the benefits of joining your organisation.
  • Stage 4 The short list. Because of the ground work in the previous stages, meetings with short-listed candidates are highly productive and time-effective.
  • Stage 5 The conclusion of the process is to provide assistance (if needed) in testing applicants as well as controlling the difficult process from offer to actual commencement of employment. We have developed a relationship with Dr Roland Tarleton PhD an independent Chartered Occupational Psychologist, with over twenty years involvement in psychology relating to careers in business and industry. Roland is fully qualified to use all the major psychometric instruments.
