Our Offer: Clients

The housing sector is growing and changing at considerable pace and we are now operating in a much more complex environment than before. There are big demands being placed on housing providers to recruit skills in the short term to keep up with the pace of change as well as having to consider a longer-term challenge in attracting and developing future talent whilst retaining top performers.

Housing providers need to ensure that they are identifying, attracting and recruiting the best talent they can in order to bring new ideas, innovate, solve complex problems, adapt to change and drive performance.

Competition for talent is high and we enjoy working in partnership with our clients to position their organisation in the right way and build and inclusive recruitment process aligned to their vision and values.

Our designated contract managers can be engaged to take full ownership of the end to end recruitment process to ease pressure on your internal resources, or to simply compliment what you already have in place.

Our end to end recruitment service offers a suite of options for you to select from to ensure each campaign is tailored to your needs.

We put particular emphasis on managing the reputation of our clients, as well as our own. Effective due diligence is crucial to managing reputational risk and we will work with you to avoid any hiring mistakes. Understanding the values of your organisation plays a vital part in how we position your business and will help us to identify the right cultural match.

Whether the requirement is temporary or permanent, good communication throughout the process is critical to the success of the appointment. We work hard to manage expectations at all times and participate in negotiations, offer stage management and consultation throughout the resignation process. In all circumstances we act as an impartial facilitator ensuring clarity and ease for all parties.

We understand that building a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace improves performance, enables greater innovation and allows organisations to have a closer connection to the communities they serve.

Finding diverse talent requires a collaborative approach. We place particular emphasis on understanding your organisational culture in order to develop an inclusive recruitment process which will attract a diverse talent pool to your organisation.
