We offer advice on a number of effective techniques that will assist you in securing the best candidates, giving you real competitive advantage. We also offer constructive advice on staff retention and how to improve your recruitment process in order to maximise long term success.
For senior appointments, we approach the market directly using our targeted network of contacts and proven search methodology. Working in consultation with you, we map out the target market and potential individuals. We then create a 'long list' of candidates and make contact for an initial discussion and any expression of interest. From this, we produce a short list of interested parties and arrange face to face meetings to assess suitability for the role.
A final shortlist is then presented and if necessary work with you to reduce this list further and then arrange formal interviews. Once this interview process has started, we continue to liaise with clients and candidates to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible.
For specific vacancies, we offer advice on advertising campaigns with creative and exciting 'copy' positioned in the right media for maximum impact. We can act as the first point of contact for a vacancy and our role is to pre-screen the prospective candidates, compile a short list and meet these individuals as a precursor to a formal interview.
We believe that clients should only pay for an exclusive search once the position has been successfully appointed. Our executive search solution is unique as we only request a small initial engagement fee with the remainder payable only once the successful appointment has been made.
Cv + interview + offer = placed. If only it was that easy. ....
We adopt a similar executive search strategy and will proactively seek potential candidates through our networks. This is complimented by targeted advertising and a rigorous selection process to ensure only the best suited candidates are introduced. Our pricing is highly competitive and calculated as a % of the annual package, payable once the new recruit has started employment.
We have been providing our clients with their temporary requirements for many years and have an excellent network of experienced contractors who can support your existing team with valuable skills at short notice. We can also provide advice on the recent legislation and ensure compliance at every stage.
We deliver the same high standards in our selection process and can assess an individual’s technical capabilities through our industry knowledge.
We have a stringent internal screening process and references, academics, proof of address and nationality are provided before the temporary contractor is appointed.
We provide a total payroll solution and can offer online timesheets and bespoke billing.
If a large amount of time is being spent trying to recruit staff including the processing of CV's and dealing with lots of agencies, then a managed service may provide an effective solution. We can tailor a service with dedicated on site personnel who would pre-screen and test any applicants. This would filter the candidates to ensure you only interviewed the most suitable. We also work as the exclusive recruitment partner for a number of our clients, delivering all technical permanent and temporary appointments at a discounted rate.
At Mattinson Partnership, we understand the impact austerity measures are having throughout both public and private sectors. With tighter budgets it has become increasingly difficult to deliver Smarter Travel initiatives.
To help overcome these challenges, we have combined sustainable transport expertise with our own recruitment capability to create the Mattinson Partnership Smarter Travel Team. With over 18 years recruitment and 10 years Sustainable Transport experience, we offer a tailored service at a cost substantially less than other traditional transport planning consultancies.
How Our Service Differs
We provide a flexible consultancy service to assist in implementing your smarter travel agenda. All projects are managed by our Smarter Travel specialist, Elaine Goad (MA, BSc) with all additional staffing requirements drawn from our own pool of over 400 registered sustainable transport professionals. With this model we are able to be highly competitive on price, we work on large or very small projects and we can ensure that the right team is working on your project.
