Q : What does a recruitment agency do?

A : A recruitment agency sources temporary, permanent and contract staff suitable for your company’s needs. You tell us what it is you are looking for and then we source a selection of people that we feel match you criteria.


Q : Why use a recruitment agency?

A : In the past you may have recruited staff directly. In doing so incurred high design and advertising costs, wasted management time by interviewing unsuitable applicants. Overall lost the company money. Why not eliminate these factors from your business by employing specialists to perform the task for you. Often we may have the right person immediately available and looking to join your company. Otherwise we will advertise on your behalf completely free of charge. We interview all interested applicants and carefully prepare a short list based on your original instructions. This leaves you to make the final choice.
