What Firms Want

  • Firms want the best candidates recruited swiftly and consistently through a UX-optimised process designed up-front to meet their needs.
  •  Firms want to have complete access to enhanced recruitment expertise inspired by market-leading data insights.
  • Firms don’t always want to manage and maintain the expensive, specialised and time-consuming requirements of different recruitment technologies and multiple service providers.
  • Firms are cost-sensitive and many prefer to pay pre-agreed fixed monthly recruitment charges rather than endure the expense and uncertainty of inconsistent chunky placement fees.
