Job Descriptions

Knowledge is power! We want to work with you right from the outset, to really understand the role that you are looking to fill and what type of character you want in your business. A meeting and/or lengthy conversation will present our consultant with the relevant information they need to build a profile of the desired candidate, as well as a greater insight into the vacancy and it's responsibilities. 


Once we have established the facts, we create an advertising campaign to attract candidates. We advertise the role through more than 450 on-line channels.

CV Screening / Interviews

During the fact-find interview, our consultants will establish whether the candidate will be a competent character in line with your requirements. We will draw together a shortlist of candidates CVs for you to choose from and subsequently interview. We adhere to meet as many candidates as possible and, where it's not possible, try to use alternative internet based solutions such as Skype.

​Assessment Centres

Our assessment days have been designed to free up your valuable time. Clever can prepare and run the centres, giving candidates a number of tests (as agreed with you) to ascertain their skills and run through the first stage interviews. Following this we can shortlist the most suitable candidates forward for a 2nd interview with the hiring manager/business owner/HR Manager within the company.
