Why choose Downtown Recruitment for your employment needs?
Whatever the calibre of person or level of position, we apply the same, consistently high standards to our recruitment process. Here are a few reasons why it makes sense to choose Downtown Recruitment as your recruitment partner.
Understanding your needs - Wherever possible, clients will receive a visit from one of our experienced consultants or an in depth telephone discussion, as Downtown Recruitment considers it important to understand your business, its structure and the culture of your company. We will also try and help you establish a clear job description and the current skills required/desired for your particular role.
Experience - Downtown has been successfully recruiting since 1986 and has fully trained and experienced consultants. Our two permanent consultants (Jane and Pam) have 30 years combined recruitment experience. Sarah our Temporary Consultant has 8 years recruitment experience and our Managing Partner (Steve) 14 years.
Quality Pre-selection - Each candidate is individually interviewed and profiled before being submitted for any vacancy.
Cost effective - For permanent or contract staff no placement means no fee! We also provide competitive terms with a 12 week rebate period for permanent placements. In fact, we are so confident in selecting the right "permanent candidates" that we offer a 4 week 100% refund in the unlikely event that they don't work out *.
Temporary staff provide flexibility to meet the demands of your business without commitment and at short notice. They can be provided for short term (as little as half a day) to long term assignments (several months). Employing temporary staff saves the additional costs of National Insurance, Holidays and absence through sickness or maternity leave etc. Don't forget that this can add anything from 20-30% to your standard salary costs.
Local Knowledge - We have extensive local knowledge of the market, including local salary levels and can provide general advice on your salary levels.
Confidentiality - At Downtown, confidentiality is guaranteed. You can be assured that your recruitment assignment will be treated with the utmost discretion. We also offer the facility to conduct client interviews at our offices, whenever this may be appropriate.
Employment Legislation - We are fully up to date with important changes to employment law that may affect your business or employee rights.
Service Level - Our intention is to provide an exceptional service; we are committed to ensuring that we continue to exceed both client and candidate expectations as our reputation and continued success depends on it.
* Please note that the 100% refund and 12 week rebate period only applies to permanent placements or contract placements of 12 months or more, where a full fee has been paid and excludes temporary to permanent placements.
