Millar Cameron will take a detailed job specification to allow us to understand the role, your organisation and any other factors that need to be considered. We will ensure that we have a detailed comprehension of your requirement in terms of knowledge, skills and behaviour, together with an understanding of how to promote your organisation to the right candidates. Time invested in fully understanding the brief will ensure that the best candidates, both technically and culturally, will be delivered in the shortlist.
Prior to embarking on the recruitment process, your dedicated Millar Cameron consultant and their research team will compile a strategy to effectively target the right individuals for your position. We will gather market intelligence and map your competitors to ensure our search will be comprehensive.
Millar Cameron uses a number of sources to generate a long list of applicants, including referrals, direct headhunting, database searching, advertising, social networking and industry-specific forum penetration. Our comprehensive searching methodologies allow us to deliver talent who are often not on the open market, allowing you to have a comprehensive selection of profiles to consider.
Millar Cameron implements a two-stage search approach. First, the research team will identify a long list of candidates and will carry out initial qualification interviews. Based on the initial interviews, your Account Manager will further understand the motivations of our candidates and ensure that their experience and aspirations are relevant to the role.
For many of our clients, we organise and undertake video interviews with the entire shortlist, using a set of pre-agreed, competency based questions. We conduct and record the interviews and send them to our clients as a media file. This allows us to further demonstrate the suitability of the candidate prior to the formal interview process.
All profiles will be sent with a coversheet containing availability, current salaries and benefits, education levels and a synopsis as to why they are a suitable candidate.
The due diligence
All profiles called for interview are fully referenced and these forms will be submitted with referee contact details for verification purposes.
Our candidates will be fully prepared for the interview. They will have as much information as possible on the role, the organisation and the environment. We will coordinate telephone interviews and assist in the arrangement of face-to-face interviews, including support arranging visas and managing travel logistics, when needed. In addition, Millar Cameron can arrange psychometric testing reports for clients who request it.
Millar Cameron will facilitate the offer process, working with you and the candidate to ensure all parties are satisfied with the outcome and are ready to begin a working relationship together. We guide candidates through the resignation process and manage on-boarding.
