“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur”
Many businesses think that using the services of a recruitment consultant is a costly way to hire permanent staff. We beg to differ.
There is a skill to identifying the right candidate for a job vacancy. It is a time consuming process, especially when you are already running at 100 miles an hour doing your “day job”. It can also be a compliance nightmare. There are so many things to consider, from Modern Slavery to Equal Opportunities and Diversity.
Why use PureKat Consultancy for your permanent recruitment requirements?
We share a common goal with our clients – to find you the best person for your permanent position with as little impact on your time as possible.
A thorough understanding of key industry sectors combined with our local knowledge of the Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk job markets helps us identify the right candidates.
The PureKat team have an uncanny knack for matchmaking. Probably because our candidate selection process does not rely purely on matching a number of keywords on a CV with what is on the job specification. There is definitely a lot more to it than that.
The recruitment process at PureKat is like an iceberg. Our clients only see the tip of that iceberg and not all the activity that is taking place below the surface, which is exactly how it should be!
Six Steps to Finding the Perfect Employee for your Permanent Vacancy
We listen to your requirements. We understand the permanent job you wish to fill. We learn about the team, your company values, culture, and the type of person you feel would be a good fit. If you have a detailed job description, we ask you for it. If there is no job description, in conjunction with you, we create one. We tailor our recruitment service to fit your exact requirements knowing that every business is different and we respect that.
Next, we create a succinct, eye-catching job advert and advertise your permanent vacancy on a number of different job boards. We use our social media platforms to promote the position to a wider audience. At this stage, we do not reveal your company name.
From responses received, we identify suitable people. We also discuss the role with prospective candidates already registered with PureKat. The candidates IDs are verified; any gaps on their CVs questioned and only then are a selection of carefully vetted CVs allowed to hit your inbox for review.
Once we have a list of suitably qualified candidates, a convenient time for first interviews is arranged. Next, we review the candidates with you and to establish if second interviews are required. If so, we will also coordinate.
We make the offer (conditional on references) to the successful candidate on your behalf. Where possible we gain detailed references from previous employers. If this is not achievable, we confirm the candidates work history, dates and job titles to prove that the information provided by the candidate is correct. On acceptance, we facilitate the signing of the contract and agree a start date.
A successful placement is not the end of the story. We keep in touch to ensure that both you and the candidate are happy. The PureKat 12 month monetary rebate ensures you will not be left “high and dry” if the candidate does not work out.
The PureKat Guarantee
Just like our feline friends, the most flexible of all domestic animals, at PureKat we know all about the importance of flexibility.
Forget the one size fits all approach, the squeezing a square peg into a round hole or selecting from a set menu of services.
When you work with PureKat for your recruitment services, you will receive a recruitment solution that is tailored exactly to your company’s specific needs. Totally bespoke and “purrfect” for you.
No "Fast Kats"
Our objective is to create relationships built on trust and mutual respect and to add real value to your organisation.
You can rest assured that PureKat will never “take your money and run”. We did not build our recruitment consultancy on making a quick buck.
Our fees are fixed, transparent, and never based upon what we think we can squeeze out of you! The fee is a set percentage of the agreed salary, regardless of your company size or industry sector.
If no placement is made, there is no fee.
You will never be “spammed” with irrelevant CVs.
That is an absolute promise.
PureKat does not subscribe to the quantity over quality ethos. CVs we send to you will be vetted and relevant to your job role and company culture.
PureKat is an elite recruitment consultancy; we want to develop long-term sustainable relationships with our clients.
We are discerning when it comes to the clients and candidates that we work with.
PureKat is a bit quirky but very professional. We adhere to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) Code of Professional Practice and hold a Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) licence.
