Our service is available to every business, regardless of size and industry. We have recruited for hundreds of small and medium sized companies across the UK, as well as companies in Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
Our cost effective service does not in any way compromise on quality - our customers know they receive fantastic service, quality, delivery and value and that's why they come back time and time again.
We spearheaded sensible recruitment fee charging in 1999, subsequently hearing from some of the UK's known-brand names. Although some of our competitors have joined us with their own low cost offering in the last few years, our advertising spend to attract the best candidates gives us far greater reach than smaller agencies offering a similar recruitment fee.
Our customers believe we lead the way in low fee recruitment and understand that a low fee needs to be quickly backed up with the delivery of the best people to interview. Over 80% of the Ashdown Group's business is made up of returning customers.
Affordable without compromise
We register almost 30,000 CVs every month but the benefit to you doesn't stop there. We have access to hundreds of high calibre people that live within 5 miles of every UK business who are either looking for the next move or a career change. We spend hundreds of thousands on advertising and marketing every year to give our customers the best jobseeker choice possible when they are recruiting. Our powerful Ashdown database currently contains the CVs of over 960,000 experienced professionals.
In order to find the high calibre people our customers expect to interview we carry out an extensive search and selection campaign. Armed with the best database and Internet searching tools modern technology offers, we search and select from a further five incredibly large databases with the intention of presenting highly suitable people for interview.
Our searching tools help us to reduce thousands of seemingly suitable CVs to a highly targeted short list of about a hundred people to consider. You benefit from us broadcasting your vacancy electronically to a carefully targeted audience on our own in-house database - discretion of course is assured and we never disclose the identity of our customer until we are given the go-ahead to do so.
Our telephone interviewing process often takes several days to fully complete and we set the highest standards. Many of the people we contact aren't looking at the well known job boards and we task ourselves with ethically positioning our customer's job role in the most attractive way possible without ever making an opportunity sound better than it really is. We promote the benefits of working for your business and make sure we match people who we think would suit your company culture.
Although we deliver quickly on a customer's instruction, we also patiently wait until we are sure we have found people that will actually impress in a face-to-face interview situation. Persistence and patience are essential to good service and we won't give up until we think we have found the right number and quality of people to interview.
