The art of Recruitment

We enjoy recruitment challenges at Southgate Consulting, really getting to know client requirements well and matching candidates against the brief as closely as possible.

The thrill for us is in finding the solution to a challenging recruitment brief and a lot of time and research goes into this. This is Executive Search, driven by the client, retained to one provider and ensuring time after time the response is relevant and of the highest quality.

Professional recruitment requires a deep understanding of client culture and candidate fit. This is only acquired by working closely with decision makers when preparing the brief, and then sticking with it.

So two candidates on a shortlist are better than a stream of CVs. I think we all agree with that. Industry knowledge, the ability to reach candidates through reputation and response time are the factors which are key in successful Executive Search. We start with a blank sheet each time and ensure there is a bespoke approach to our final, successful result time and time again. That is what makes it an art rather than a science, which is why Southgate Consulting continues to work tirelessly in promoting this method of recruitment.
