Finding talent

We perform in-depth candidate competency based interviewing allowing timely presentation to our clients of only the most suitable applicants. The search and assessment process for urgent assignments can be as quick as 2 – 3 weeks, from agreeing on the role specification to the final offer.

Recruiting the most competent candidate with the most suitable personality can be vital to the performance of a company’s executives and consequently to how an organisation performs.

We maintain and nurture close and often long-term relationships with an exclusive network of pre-qualified candidates. Our clients have exclusive access to this tight professional circle of trusted, recommended candidates not available from any other portfolio.

Selectus Rec4Tec

Selectus has a specialist team Rec4Tec – to recruit specialist Tech roles across EMEA as well as HR, PA/EA and admin support roles for this industry. We have wide-ranging experience recruiting for innovative start-ups as well as established Tech companies and R&D centres covering a wide spectrum of digital innovation sectors including Fintech, Biotech and Insurtech.

As well, many Selectus clients in the hedge fund and private equity space are active investors in the Technology sector and we also assist with the recruitment needs of their Tech companies through our specialist team – Rec4Tec. Technology is the future of business and we are uniquely qualified to assist you with your Tech specialist needs across EMEA.

finding the perfect role

We are trusted partners to leaders in their sector who look to recruit the best and most qualified candidates, in terms of technical skills/competency, mindset and motivation. Diversity and inclusion inform the thinking of global corporate leaders and we partner with our clients to actively promote and support diverse candidates and tolerant workplaces.

The goal of our competency-based interviewing is to truly understand who you are and your experience, personality, aspirations, motivations and long-term career plans. We provide a unique advisory service to candidates to prepare you for the interview process. We always endeavour to provide honest feedback in order to increase your ability to shine. Ultimately, our aim is to achieve a match that is attuned to your goals rather than just “a job”.

Onboarding

Our 100 day pledge

Most agencies consider their job done once the offer is signed & sealed. Selectus goes well beyond that, by assisting both the client and the recruited candidate for 100 days with onboarding “best practices” insight methods and feedback to create a successful partnership from the very start.

Employee retention starts from the moment a candidate signs the contract. We act as an intermediary mentor between the candidate and the company, ensuring a clear communication flow. If there are areas to address and redress, these will be resolved. Nearly 70% of employees that experience great onboarding will stay with an organisation for three and beyond.
