LP Consulting Services resource at executive, middle management and business support levels providing permanent, contract and temporary staff for the Manufacturing, Hospitality, Transport, Warehousing & Logistics, Commercial, Banking and Finance, Sales and Marketing and IT.
The recruitment methodology we employ includes industry networking, search and advertised selection. All of our consultants are fully trained in competency-based selection and our dedication to providing shortlists of quality candidates reflects our industry experience and detailed professional approach.
Our service based philosophy is built upon respect for our clients’ needs rather than agency-driven KPI’s. We believe our value add is our recruitment expertise and our ability to ensure cost savings to the business by minimising disruption to core functions throughout the recruitment process.
As such our consultants work with the Human Resources personnel to ensure that recruitment briefs are comprehensive and have headcount approval prior to commencement of the assignment. Every team is different with specific requirements, when these are known to your recruitment specialist further meetings with line management are no longer required thus maximizing information and minimising interruption.
Our mantra is that our clients don’t need interview practice so we recommend the MOST suitable candidate for interview. Client requirements can change throughout the process so asking the right questions saves everyone time.
Quality control is an essential part of the service we provide. All our candidates are advised to bring their original academic records or any documentation that supports the information on their resume, for presentation to their consultant at time of initial interview. Copies are kept in the candidate file and faxed to our clients for review. Two reference checks are conducted with their most recent employers/positions with a candidates direct reporting line manager wherever possible. Our reference check template is comprehensive and can be modelled to meet a specific area of interest to our client. Skill Testing and Personality Profiling is essential for office support positions and is provided for candidates where appropriate.
All candidates enjoy prompt and open communication with their consultant. We support our candidates throughout the recruitment process from interview to offer and post placement. Understanding a candidate’s requirements at the start of the process is an essential part of providing that service.
We carefully screen applicants prior to inviting them for interview in our offices; LP Consulting does not seek to build a data base of candidates but more specifically to resource candidates that are suitable for current positions. This avoids candidate frustration and enables consultants to concentrate their efforts on current positions.
The first question we ask our candidates at time of interview is “What are you ideally looking for in your next position?”
This service based approach enables candidates to be frank about their expectations and their consultants to look for the preferred environment and role that match their skills and experience. The consultant that invites a candidate in for interview is responsible for their candidate throughout the full recruitment process.
