GETTING TO KNOW YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS

  • Once the paperwork is in order, we take time to get to know you and your business.
  • Listening is the first step toward identifying the right candidate for the role you are trying to fill, and more importantly for your business as a whole.
  • In order to do this successfully, we need to ask questions, and lots of them.
  • Fortunately as we are experts and specialists in our field, the industry specific and more technical questions, we will already have covered. Aspects like company culture, subtleties of a particular position or situation are however key when it comes to finding the Rite Fit for both you and the candidate.

SOURCING AND SCREENING

SOURCING

  • Once we are comfortable that we know who and what it is you are looking for, we employ a variety of techniques to source the right candidates for you.
  • Being specialists, we are able to turn to an established network and use our reputation within the field for referrals and recommendations when it comes to who might be open to new opportunities, even if they weren’t actively looking for a new role. These are often your most valuable candidates.
  • In addition to this, we have over 20 000 candidates on our database, all of whom are relevant, skilled professionals across Retail, Textiles and Clothing.
  • Where necessary, we employ headhunting techniques in order to secure the best talent, while still being careful to steer clear of any existing clients’ employees.

SCREENING

  • Initial screening to ensure that the candidate is up to our standards.
  • A comprehensive, face-to-face interview (where possible) or Skype/Telephonic interview with one of our consultants.
  • Referencing – we will do our best to get two references before any candidate is interviewed.

INTERVIEWING AND FEEDBACK

  • We set up and arrange all necessary telephone calls, Skypes and interviews. If the candidate needs to fly to another city in SA, or abroad – we are more than happy to facilitate these arrangements on your behalf as well.
  • We pride ourselves on feedback, from both candidates and clients, and aim to be as open and honest with both parties. This is to ensure transparency at each and every stage.

CANDIDATE MANAGEMENT

  • A large part of securing the best talent is being able to manage a candidate effectively through an interview process.
  • Most candidates will have other processes on the go. Therefore making sure that the candidate is open and honest with us throughout the process is key, in order for us to advise our clients accordingly.
  • Ensuring that your reputation as a client is managed throughout the interview process is another aspect that often isn’t managed.

OFFER AND AFTER PLACEMENT CLIENT/CANDIDATE RELATIONS

  • Before an offer is made, we ensure all necessary reference checks are completed and sent to the relevant hiring manager for review.
  • There is often a ‘waiting period’ between a final interview, and a formal offer being made. This is a tricky time in the process, and we ensure that we maintain strong ‘candidate control’ and open communication to ensure that we have insight into where the candidates thoughts are at.
  • Salary negotiations: We manage this process, either before or after a formal offer is made where necessary and do our best to keep both the client and candidate in mind throughout this sometimes challenging process.
  • Once an offer is made, we manage the paperwork and formalities – ensuring all is in order.
  • Once a candidate has accepted, there will usually be a period of at least 4 weeks between the acceptance and start date to allow for notice periods. During this time, there are still many other ‘risks’ at play. These include Counter offers, change of heart, cold feet, or a new opportunity presenting itself to the candidate. We ensure we maintain regular contact with the candidate during this period, to ensure that if there are any concerns we are always available to put any concerns to bed and ensure they know that they have made the right decision to join your business.
  • Once the candidate has started, our work still is not over. It is now part of our after-sales service, to check in with you and the candidate to see how the new employee is settling in, and whether or not there is anything more we can assist with.
  • Only after 3 months, do we take a step back safe in the knowledge that it was the right candidate and both parties are happy!
