Carriera is a specialist recruitment business delivering timely solutions to our clients’ requirements. We pride ourselves on the service we offer our clients and our proven track record of creating successful, long-term relationships between clients and candidates. Every recruitment assignment is different which requires us to work flexibly and with the benefit of a full understanding of your needs. Accordingly, many of our assignments are on a fully exclusive basis, enabling us to develop a close working relationship with you and, in turn, provide you with the best professionals the market has to offer.

Our key focuses when delivering on any recruitment assignment are identifying and understanding:

Identifying

It can be difficult to find the “right” individual in markets which are fluid and competitive. However, by maintaining strong links with our extensive network of contacts we can typically identify a shortlist of suitable prospective candidates in a short period of time. We also advertise certain vacancies on a range of different portals, all of which are widely accessible to prospective candidates. Our method of market and individual identification and the way in which we approach prospective candidates enable us to identify the very best professionals the market has to offer and individuals who are most suited to you, your team and your business.

Understanding

Before identifying or approaching any prospective candidates, we like to meet you; the hiring manager. Our experience shows that our most successful placements have been a result of mutual understanding. We believe it is imperative that we know precisely the type of individual your business requires and that we agree our process of finding that individual.

Similarly, it is important that we meet in person with all prospective candidates, and get to know them and how they will “fit” with your business prior to putting them forward to you for an interview. We also take references on all candidates put forward for interview.

ADVERTISED RECRUITMENT

As part of our bespoke recruitment solutions, Carriera also provides an excellent advertised recruitment service. Again, this service can be tailored entirely to your needs and provides you with a platform from which your recruitment and advertising campaigns can be actively managed on your behalf.

Advertising campaigns are typically jointly branded and made available on a wide range of different mediums in order to achieve maximum coverage while benefiting from heavily discounted advertising fees. A consultant, appointed to your campaign, will collate the responses received from the advertisements and will provide a recommended shortlist of prospective candidates for your consideration and review. We will then work with you and provide all necessary support in the selection and appointment of a successful candidate.

CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT

Our consultants have a proven track record of managing large-scale recruitment campaigns. Such campaigns include the appointment of multiple hires (team moves) or the careful staging of hires following the implementation of a new team or business stream within an organisation. Carriera has the expertise, experience and industry connections to deliver a powerful, seamless and carefully targeted recruitment campaign.

ADVISORY SERVICES

Business acquisitions or mergersRecruitment may not always be the best solution to expand or diversify your business. Often the acquisition of, or a merger with, an existing team or business may be the most successful long-term solution.

We provide a confidential, objective, advisory service on the best solution for your business. With our extensive industry connections we are well placed to identify and advise you on potential market opportunities and can assist you from the very early planning stages of a proposed acquisition or merger through to completion and the transition of employees. Given our status in the market and our close relationship with many of its key players, we stand ready to make introductions to you.

BenchmarkingWe also offer a range of other services tailored to our clients’ needs and the industries they operate within. We provide informed industry and sector analysis and can advise you on market trends and opportunities, compensation packages, progression analysis as well as competitor analysis.
