Why Pay a Recruitment Fee to Chameleon Personnel (or any Consultancy for that matter)?

In the demanding word of financial recruitment finding the right candidate for your role is not something that can be done by running a simple CV search on a computer.

It’s true that this initial screening will provide you with a number of CVs displaying a certain skillset but what about the all important subjective factors:

  • Do they really want your job? After all they didn’t apply for it.
  • Personality and team fit
  • How do they come across in person? Enthusiasm (or lack of it) doesn’t shine through on a CV
  • Credibility

Hiring the right Recruitment Consultant can save you not only time but it also minimises the risk of recruiting the wrong candidate. Why? Well, recruitment consultants test these subjective factors day in and day out. They have been exposed numerous times to the candidate that pulls the wool over your eyes; they are versed in the art of digging beneath ‘reasons for leaving’ their last job and they can immediately spot the ‘I just need a job, any job’ candidate from the one who actually wants your job.

We’re not infallible of course but many years of recruiting into plc finance divisions, appointing someone to run an SME Accounts team and ascertaining the right-hand man (or woman) for the entrepreneurial Owner-Managed Business has given us a valuable insight into what might work and what definitely doesn’t! With OMBs in particular much boils down to the right ‘culture’ fit.

Although A.I. is gathering speed with the advent of Big Data it will be some time before your PC flings the perfect candidate straight at you without incurring substantial costs.

It costs nothing to meet us and decide for yourself before entrusting us to take on the task of recruiting the right person for your business or team. And if you value your own time it won’t be long before you weigh up our fee against it and we come out floating on top. ??
