Recruitment agencies Shoreham-by-Sea – others may promise, but at The Recruitment Consultancy we really deliver…

A broad choice of talent

We offer unparalleled access to the best talent in Shoreham and Sussex. Our reputation as a knowledgeable, straight-forward and professional employment agency attracts the market’s strongest candidates.

The right candidates

Our extensive database of pre-qualified candidates have all been vetted by our experienced consultants. We thoroughly interview every candidate to understand their motivation and aspirations before we talk to you.

Service built around you

Every company in Shoreham has specific recruitment needs and our recruitment team will build tailored solutions to reflect these. You know your Shoreham business better than us and we appreciate one size does not fit all.

Safe brand representation

We maintain exceptional levels of service throughout the recruitment process, to ensure your business in Shoreham is professionally represented. Safeguarding your employer brand in the is crucial.

Knowledgeable consultants

Our experienced consultants will focus on the right recruitment solution for your Shoreham business. We don’t pressurise them with typical recruitment agency targets. They do a great job, why hinder them?

Consistent results

Our approach is collaborative, honest and personal and will deliver great results. Our recruitment services have been thoroughly tried and tested, which is reflected in our strong market position.

Despite the current economic climate, the continuing shortage of skills and the ongoing ‘war for talent’ means finding and retaining quality candidates for Shoreham businesses is more competitive and time-consuming than ever

This is where we step in

We’re straight-forward

We are an office of genuine and experienced recruitment consultants and over the years we have created a strong foot-hold in the Shoreham and Sussex markets. Our reputation amongst local employers as being the ‘go-to’ office agency in the area, is based on our collaborative and professionally-managed recruitment services that find the right candidates on time and within budget. As a successful recruitment agency, when securing the best talent for our Shoreham clients, we leave no stone unturned.

We’re a people business

We’re not just a recruitment agency, we’re a people business and we appreciate that recruitment is a two-way street when finding the ideal match.  So, we make sure we do it properly. We’re definitely not fans of the bombardment approach where agencies throw CVs at a permanent or temporary role and hope one sticks. That’s just not us. We use our well-honed office recruitment skills and years of experience to present our Shoreham clients with candidates who we are confident will be right for their business.

We don’t take short cuts

We know that each company is as unique as the candidates we place, so we will always go that extra mile to ensure we find the right recruitment solution for both parties…after all, recruitment is about people.  We are firm believers that nothing beats the personal touch and, unlike many recruitment agencies Shoreham, we fully interview and assess all our candidates as we believe it is the only way to truly understand their motivations and aspirations. This requires tenacity and works as part of our promise to our clients.

We do what we say

Our clients and candidates know that we will deliver the goods. Clients work with us because they know we will find them the best talent across Shoreham to fill their positions. Candidates come to us because we offer employment opportunities in Shoreham that they wouldn’t otherwise see. Both know that we will give friendly, helpful and constructive guidance at every stage of the process.

We like to get it right first time

We strive to get it right first time and that’s why businesses stay with us.  We are in this for the long-haul and our team has a tenacious desire to continuously find the right candidates for all of our Shoreham-based clients.  We are not a typical office recruitment agency, so work with us and see how we will find you the best talent whilst saving you time, resource and ultimately cost.

We believe we do a great job, but don’t just take our word for it…

The benefits of a flexible workforce

Temporary workers have always been an integral part of the workforce across Sussex and more than ever they are recognised as an ideal solution to help businesses get through the uncertainty that has been created by the pandemic.

With many businesses working with skeleton staff, it will only take a slight increase in demand for the service scales to tip in the wrong direction.  However, long-term it may still be too early to commit to increased headcount, so bringing in temporary support can be a great solution.  Likewise, bringing someone into a business on a ‘temp-to-perm’  or contract basis can be a real win-win situation as both sides are able to ‘try-before-they-buy’.

From just a few hours to several months, or even years, our fantastic team of temporary workers can immediately help your business get back on track.

We always live up to our promises, so hiring temporary staff to work in the Shoreham-by-Sea area will be simple…

Thorough interviewing

We thoroughly interview and pre-vet all our temporary workers. We have a rigorous recruitment process. We spend time to get to know each potential temporary worker as we know temping is not right for everyone. We gain a good understanding about their motivation, their adaptability and very importantly their dependability.

Skill testing

We skill-test all our temporary workers from our Sussex office. We ensure they have the best skills to fulfil the requirements of each temporary role. Every temporary assignment is different, so we tailor the assessments to ensure they meet the standards we demand for each of our clients.

Managed payroll

We charge a pre-agreed hourly rate for each agency temp, which includes their hourly pay rate, tax, NI, holiday pay, pension and our admin costs. We are always transparent and there will be no hidden extras.

We do the checks

We complete all the necessary legal checks, references and paperwork. You can be 100% confident that every temporary agency worker will be thoroughly vetted to our exacting standards, giving you total peace of mind.

We look after everyone

We look after our temporaries and we look after our clients. From the beginning to the end of an assignment, our designated consultants will stay in contact throughout. Our job is to ensure everything runs smoothly on both sides.

The group, now known as ‘The Surrey & Sussex HR Forum’ hosts a wealth of free training sessions, interactive workshops, legal updates and annual conferences, all focusing on the developments and  challenges that the HR industry faces in an ever-changing World.  Throughout Covid the group has ensured members remain updated and connected by offering a full programme of webinars focussing on the most current topics requested by members.
