Our Process

The discussion will consider what recruitment actions you may have already taken, the culture at your early learning service, your expectations of staff and how the recruitment process works on your side.

We head-hunt suitable candidates and search through our extensive database, social media marketing campaigns, and any advertising if needed.

We conduct in-depth interviews with each candidate before sending you a tailored shortlist. The interview includes ensuring all qualifications and documentation are in place. The thrust of the interview is focused on ensuring that the interviewee is passionate about the role proposed to them, and will provide the best educational experience for the children in your setting as will be an excellent cultural fit for your organisation.

From our tailored shortlist, we will arrange and manage any interviews on your behalf and coordinate workplace trials.

Here is a short selection of the typical questions we receive. If you have a question about our services feel free to reach out! 

A business will thrive with the right employees; however, finding great employees is not always that easy. Sourcing candidates can be time-consuming, and the costs of getting it wrong can put your livelihood at risk. Some studies say upwards of 150% of that employee’s salary. 

Like other professional services, we’re experts who can help you find and retain great employees so you can focus on your core business. We can deepen and diversify your pool of available candidates, offer salary insights, coordinate the interview and pre-employment process, provide ongoing consultations for your business needs and much more.

All of this leads to great employees while still giving you time to focus on running your business. IF your tooth needed a filling or your hair a style cut you could probably do that yourself too – but would he quality be up to scratch?

We tailor our recruitment solutions to your unique needs.  Generally, this includes in-depth conversations with you about your business and the role, interviews with vetted candidates, feedback, compensation negotiations, closing an offer with your chosen candidate, pre-employment screening, and ongoing consultations as needed. 

We work on your timeline and will match your urgency. If you need a critical hire tomorrow, we will do our best to send over candidates today. We collaborate with you around your needs, availability, business timelines, etc. We will set expectations with you, but ultimately, we’re not making widgets – we’re building relationships.

Absolutely! We stand by our work, seek long-term placements, and guarantee your satisfaction. We offer several industry-leading guarantee options; typically of three or six month in duration.

Our approach to sourcing and recruiting is relentless and comprehensive. 

Whilst the specifics vary from role to role. Some of the processes include online postings, Boolean sourcing, a deep referral network (in some industries, almost half of our placed candidates are, active networking in the community, diverse community partnerships, and professional and industry groups.

If it were easy and quick to find the right person for a role, you’d have hired them already! We spend most of our time building relationships and making connections for the benefit of our clients.
