The Benefits of Employing an Independent Recruitment Company
At PureKat Consultancy, we are extremely proud to be an independent recruitment company. Being an independent consultancy brings a number of benefits for our clients and candidates alike.
Our highest priority has always been our clients and candidates. Being an independent company means that we are invested in our business, and therefore are able to provide the highest quality of service. We’re not pigeonholed by a training manual and restrictions set by the higher ups, so we can prioritise our focus on customer service.
Being an independent recruitment company means that we can be selective about our candidates and clients. We pride ourselves on being an elite recruitment consultancy, so we’re very discerning with who we choose to work with and alongside. We only recommend candidates to the very best businesses that we feel offer a fair wage and a positive working environment. Likewise, we would never recommend a candidate who we don’t feel is right for the position. We didn’t receive our five star reviews by focusing on quantity of placements, we are focused on supplying the very best candidates for a role that would suit them and the company alike.
Being an independent consultancy means that we are also very selective with our team and the staff that represent PureKat. Each member of the PureKat team has a thorough understanding of our key industry sectors, as well as detailed local knowledge of the Essex, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Hertfordshire and Suffolk job markets, which helps us to identify the right candidates for the right positions. It’s important to use that our team are knowledgeable, passionate, and focused on looking after our clients and candidates whilst providing the highest quality of service.
Most recruitment agencies are focused on KPIs (key performance indicators), including number of phone calls made, number of CVs submitted for jobs, etc. As an independent consultancy, we do not subscribe to this quantity over quality culture. We take our time to develop long-term and understanding relationships with our clients and candidates, which give us a deeper understanding of how we can really help provide the best recruitment service possible.
When it comes to the more competitive and specialist roles, we know that it can be difficult to fill these vacancies. This can often lead to agencies quickly and carelessly throwing CVs at the role to try and find someone that “will do”. As an independent consultancy, we can spend time and focus researching and networking in order to identify the right candidates that are likely to have the skillset and experience that are necessary for the position. Often the ideal candidate is not actively looking for a new job, but would be open to one if the right opportunity came along. This means that they may need approaching and speaking with outside of regular office hours, and as an independent business, our team are able to spend time working on pursuing these golden candidates. We are dedicated to delivering the highest quality service possible, and being an independent recruitment consultancy means that we have the freedom to do so.
As an independent recruitment consultancy, we can set our own rates, which means we are able to be extremely competitive with our service costs. We know that no two businesses are alike, so we offer a bespoke service that is custom built for our individual client’s needs and requirements. Our flexibility is key to accommodating our clients. We investigate the specific requirements and challenges that face our clients and candidates, so that we can deliver bespoke solutions for each job role, ensuring the perfect match and the perfect solution.
We specialise in knowing where to attract the best talent. As an independent recruitment consultancy, we have our own wide networks and tools that we use to find and recruit the very highest quality candidates. We are experts at understanding our candidates’ needs and motivations, which means we can offer specialist advice on career moves and the best steps for a job hunter to take.
The most important element of being an independent recruitment consultancy is our professionalism. We follow the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) Code of Professional Practice in the way we deal with all of our candidates, whether they’re looking for a temporary or permanent position. We also proudly hold a Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) Licence. This is particularly relevant when recruiting for employees within the agriculture, horticulture, packaging and processing sectors for temporary positions. We take our responsibilities seriously, and hold ourselves to the highest regard with our practice.
Our clients and candidates have always been the driving force of our business, and being an independent consultancy means that we can focus on putting them first. We’re very proud of our high quality of service, as well as the level of support that we offer to our clients and candidates. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to ensure that both our clients and candidates are 100% happy, and our five star reviews attest to that dedication. Being an Independent Recruitment Consultancy is something that we’re extremely proud of at PureKat Consultancy, and we strive to deliver the highest level of service to all candidates and clients.
If you’d like to know more about the bespoke services that we have to offer our clients, or you’re looking for a recruitment consultancy that takes time to get you know your career goals and match you with a relevant position, we would love to hear from you.
