Hamlin Knight tailors our recruitment process to the needs of your business, ensuring that our fees are competitively priced.

With twenty years’ experience, we are creative in our approach to candidate sourcing, ensuring that we find the best people in the market for each role.

Our approach can include:

  • Personal recommendation – Our candidates and clients are so pleased with the dedicated care and attention we give them, many of them tell their family, friends and colleagues about us. Around 40% of our candidates are recommended to us by others and are exclusive to Hamlin Knight.
  • Various Job Boards – We invest in advertising roles on various job sites and boards and are constantly reviewing how effective this is. We keep the culture of your business in mind throughout. We use National, well known job sites, as well as smaller, bespoke sites tailored to specific roles.
  • Dedicated open days – We regularly hold open days at our offices across the country. We are flexible, with greatly extended opening hours, allowing candidates that are looking for work to pop in and see us either before or after work, in order to make their lives easier.
  • Head Hunting/Social Media/Networking – We pride ourselves on our experience, our consultants are all extremely knowledgeable in their field and can head hunt talent for you with confidence, where appropriate. That said, we are committed to developing and we are constantly reviewing our approaches to ensure that our service remains ahead. We share knowledge across the country and our consultants will network and use the relevant social media within industry sectors to source the best candidates.

Our recruitment process is committed to understanding the aims and motivations of our candidates, as well as their skills. As part of the comprehensive registration process at Hamlin Knight, candidates are asked to carry out a series of skills tests. These typically cover spelling, grammar, MS Office, data entry and typing skills; however, we can test on a wide range of skills from Purchase Ledger to language skills, at your request.

We can also set up bespoke testing for our clients, enabling you to specifically test skills that are unique to individual requirements. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions around this.
