We will also ask you about your organisation’s culture and ethos – quite simply what makes you what you are. That’s vital, because there’s little point in the role-fit being right but the cultural fit being wrong. That’s why we invest considerable time in ensuring that we understand your organisation at all levels to ensure the fit is correct from all angles.
I consider Hewitts Consulting to be an extension of my recruitment team, working in partnership with Smart421 to help fuel our business growth. Partnership is not a word I use lightly. Our recruitment partners are not simply suppliers, they work closely with us, understand our business, our direction and headcount forecasts. They work with us to build a ‘future pipeline’ of talent, delivering the right resources as and when we need them. When I first spoke to Maggie it was a refreshing experience talking to someone who had clearly done their research and was on our wavelength. Her team made the effort to visit our offices, understand our business and absorb our culture, which means they effectively represent us to prospective candidates. That’s important, because their relationship with candidates goes beyond assessing the ability to do the job. Hewitts Consulting dig beneath the surface layer to fully qualify individuals. When they suggest a candidate I’m sure they are sending us a good match technically, professionally and culturally. Hewitts Consulting have invested the time and effort needed to go beyond immediate ‘here and now’ demands, to work proactively and strategically with Smart421. Their responsiveness is excellent, their communication exceptional and we’re building a strong, long-term relationship.
Hewitts Consulting offer a personalised service and get to know clients requirements at a detailed level, in doing so they can be trusted to maintain the highest levels of integrity throughout the process. They build strong relationships with both clients and candidates and communicate fully throughout so everyone knows what’s going on. In comparison to a number of other recruitment consultancies in my experience, Hewitts Consulting differentiate themselves in terms of their service. They are highly responsive and in the unlikely event of any issues their problem resolution is rapid and effective.
