Newman Stewart has experience in utilising a wide ranging portfolio of channels for placing adverts from traditional methods such as newspaper and industry journal advertising to online job boards through to modern techniques such as the practise of advertising and sourcing through social media platforms.
We use our expert knowledge to construct advertising copy which will appeal directly to your target audience and work with specialist media buyers to determine the most effective advertising strategy possible. This enables us to attract the most suitable candidates with the right skill set and experience within the required industries.
1. Meet & understand
We take time to meet you, in order to understand you and your business, its objectives, where it has come from, where it is going to, what success might look like, why there is a need to recruit and what you expect to achieve by successfully fulfilling the opportunity.
When we have met and understood, we can define and write the Assignment Brief to encompass: Company Overview, Job Specification, Person Specification, Competency Profile, Induction Objectives, and Interview Process. In doing so we are better placed to sell the opportunity to prospective candidates and then assess their capability to fulfil the role.
2. Advert writing & placement
We work with our specialist media buyers to define the most appropriate channel for advertising and provide you with our ‘set’ advert copy (once you have approved the advert placement and we have booked the space) for you to scrutinise and approve. Once you have done so the advert will be placed.
3. Response review
Sift the applicants and provide initial feedback to the client, invite all appropriate candidates to interview.
Use the Assignment Brief to interview and assess the skills, behaviours and competence of all prospective candidates and where requested utilise Psychometric Assessment tools. Provide reports on all shortlisted candidates documenting their suitability and potential areas for development.
Provide a report on all shortlisted candidates, to fully inform the client prior to their interviews. We then manage the candidates through the interview process, offer and start date to ensure a successful transition into their new opportunity.
After 3 months employment conduct review meetings with the successful candidate and all client contacts to ensure all parties remain satisfied.
