Our Services

No two recruitment assignments are alike. We always aim to tailor our approach to client needs.  If a role is confidential, you may need discreet search and selection services. However, for a newly created position or a start-up business, you may need to build your brand and go with a full advertising and social media campaign. Whatever the situation, we’ll listen and recommend the best solution to attract the best-fit individual, not just the best person available at the time.  

This may include international/national searches, advertised selections, proactive networking or discreet market benchmarking.

Contingent:

Search and selection which saves time and internal resources.

Sometimes recruiting a role requires quick and easy access to quality candidates. Less time spent by your team reviewing CVs and interviewing; and a low risk financial investment. In this instance contingent search and selection may be the most appropriate approach.  We use leading-edge technology and have access to job boards and candidate databases. This means we can quickly engage with and identify the right talent for your permanent or interim role. We’ll qualify the candidates as well as our recommendation of their suitability. We’ll then help manage the process through to offer and acceptance. 

Exclusive & Retained Services:

Search services where a dedicated or discreet process is required.

Whether you are a start-up or family owned business, a public or not for profit organisation, or a large corporate company, we can assist where a tailored and consultative approach is required. By truly working in partnership with you, we take accountability for delivering on an appointment which will have the impact that is desired – however difficult or pressing that brief is, and however long that takes. Using our extensive network and reputation for credibility we will help to design a process which will ensure that your opportunity is presented to the best talent in a professional way. Headhunting and engaging passive candidates in a tight labour market takes subtlety and persistence. We will act as an extension of your brand to bring the best people to the table.

Team Moves/Acquisitions:

Brokerage services for accountancy & legal practices. 

Acting as a trusted intermediary we can assist with the recruitment of entire teams moving from one accountancy or legal firm to another. This often involves providing both parties with a committed and confidential brokerage service over a number of months to ensure that the process is handled in a smooth and transparent way. We have an excellent track record of helping firms to navigate this complex process resulting in successful and profitable outcomes for all parties.

Temporary Assignments:

Our Interim team will work with you closely and with urgency to find a temporary solution at short notice for business-critical assignments.  Whether it’s short-term cover for a current employee’s absence, or to complete a business critical project on time. We will take care of the search, the legal compliance and the payroll requirements. Our knowledge of the interim talent pool and our network of contacts allow us to access the skills you need to ease any pinch points in your operations. 

Fixed Term Contracts:

Are you looking to recruit an interim resource and administer their costs through your own payroll? We can assist with recruiting accountancy and legal expertise on a fixed-term contract basis.  Recruiting expertise on a fixed-term basis can give you greater control and cost savings, as well as offer the employee enhanced benefits and increased job security.

Market mapping:

To identify future talent and benchmark internal resource planning

We are increasingly requested by clients to assist them with identifying potential talent pools. This may be to assist with developing strategic organisational objectives, to plan for perceived succession issues or to understand competitive advantage at a specific point in time.  Whatever the reason, by using our extensive research capabilities we can provide a comprehensive report on the talent landscape in a particular sector or sub-specialism. This in turn can be a valuable tool in recruitment decisions. Again every market mapping exercise is different, so we tailor our approach and fee arrangement for this service to suit client needs. 

Campaign Management: 

If you are looking to build your brand or promote a new service within your business we can manage the entire campaign for you from end to end.  We will tailor our approach to suit your requirements and can include everything from scoping the role and writing the job description to publishing branded advertising on appropriate online job boards or professional publications. Following this we can assist with designing the recruitment process and then facilitate interviews themselves, if your requirement demands this.  Campaign management can ease the pressure on internal resources if they are lacking and ensure costs are managed efficiently.

At Creasey, we love working with David and his team at Harvey John because they understand the bigger picture! They have invested the time to really get to know us as a business, what we are about now and our vision for what we want to achieve in the future.

Hayley has placed two excellent candidates with my in-house legal team. I was impressed with the requirements and her ability to execute these. I would recommend Hayley for legal in-house roles recruitment.

David was absolutely brilliant. He took a measured and considered approach. Really listening to what our needs were, rather than just trying to fit a potential candidate (square peg) into our requirements (round hole).
