Contracting recruitment process

Contract recruitment is fast paced, with skilled candidates in high demand. It’s important to have a smooth process that keeps them engaged and helps you attract the best mid to senior level talent over your competitors.

Scope of the position


We will first arrange a meeting (in-person or remote) to go over the role in detail, establish the contract length, skillset, salary/rate and to run through an IR35 assessment to determine the outcome of the position.

Recruitment advice


Our expert consultants have specialist market knowledge, able to understand role demand, salary expectations and candidate availability.

Plan of approach


We put together an effective market strategy to approach candidates through different avenues, such as social media, databases, adverts and our existing network relationships. Our proactive approach ensures we can find the best potential candidates.

Check of shortlist


An important part of the process is our pre-screening calls with candidates, to gain an overview of their skills and experience, and if it matches the requirement.

Job interviews


Our consultants manage the interview process, booking the interviews with you and preparing candidates before each interview. We also conduct post-interview feedback calls with candidates to how they found the interview, alongside receiving candidate feedback with yourselves to establish next steps.



If you select a candidate that you would like to make an offer to, we will work with you to negotiate pay rates, start date and keep all parties informed on contract progression/issues.
