At Skilled Careers we take the time to understand your precise requirements in our briefing meeting so that we can build a detailed action plan tailored to those parameters.
We also guarantee regular updates on progress and don’t waste any time considering irrelevant, speculative or unsuitable resumés.
We use a unique, risk-free selection process
Our expert selection process is thorough and effective, at every stage of the brief:
- Intuitive research
- Consideration of an appropriate approach towards both your business and the candidate
- Clear profiling with key compatibility indicators
- Convenient and fluid interviewing
- Astute final referencing and short-listing
At Skilled Careers, our consultants have their own tried and tested workforce solution, which enables you to keep your overheads low and avoid the up-front expense and delay usually associated with recruitment.
Our consultants’ successes are driven not by box-ticking targets but by client satisfaction based on knowledge of both prevailing market forces and the particulars of your brief. Therefore, as soon as we understand clearly what your requirements are, a competitive and fail-safe quote is given.
At Skilled Careers we take time to get to know the culture of your business.
We ensure that those candidates who go on to work for you are suitable across all the values of your brand and will fit comfortably into your business environment, as well as into the professional role.
- An impressive shortlist with a detailed commentary on each of the candidates
- Candidates who have been actively sold your company proposition in advance of the interview
- Support for each step of the process
Our written briefs are succinct and drawn from your instructions with added input from our up-to-date knowledge of current market conditions. We also guarantee complete discretion; your business details and recruitment needs are kept confidential, particularly from competitors.
Our on-going contact with you will keep you up-to-date on how the selection process is going. We also follow up post employment to discuss on-going satisfaction for both you and the candidate. Hand your recruitment needs to us with confidence. Get in touch with us here to start the process of hiring your new role
Whether you choose to outsource the entire function or a particular process we will work with you to understand the needs of your organisation and create an innovative, flexible and cost effective solution.
By allowing Skilled Careers to manage the more administrative and process orientated aspects of the recruitment cycle it will not only save you money but also free up valuable internal resources so they can focus on more strategic planning, operations and longer terms projects and initiatives.
By working in partnership and truly understanding your organisation’s culture and long-term needs, Recruitment Outsourcing offers a far more cost efficient, flexible and long term approach to your requirements, than unplanned ad-hoc based recruitment which tends to be less cost effective.
Many organisations are now seeking to consolidate all their staffing requirements with one recruitment company taking all responsibility for the management and delivery of staffing solutions. The organisational advantages are clear – a single point of contact, but the same broad access to under-supplied employment markets.
Greater consistency can be achieved for both temporary and permanent staff in terms of rates, selection criteria, contractor support and management.

We are not a CV submittal service and pride ourselves on being consultants and understanding our clients’ needs, which will change as their business evolves.
Other services offered include:

The efficient running of a department or project can be prejudiced by countless problems – many of them unforeseen.

Low-Cost, Fast Service
Our flexible workforce solution allows you to keep your overheads low and avoid the up-front expense and delay associated with the recruitment of permanent staff.

As soon as we understand clearly what your requirements are, a competitive quote is given.
