An Effective Search Strategy
We work with clients to develop, challenge and create a comprehensive campaign brief by utilising our previous experience and wealth of market knowledge so that our search is targeted, and our teams have complete clarity when going to market. In competitive market conditions we ensure you and your company have the very best representation to put you ahead of your competition when competing to attract new talent.
Candidate Identification & Evaluation
We have a team of experienced talent identification and research consultants who leave no stone unturned and have the capability to find anyone anywhere. We leverage our industry knowledge and identify the competitor companies where prospective talent may be found.
Having highlighted a list of potential prospects, we endeavour to speak to all of them, not just enough to find a shortlist, all of them. This provides our client with the very best talent and provides detailed market knowledge whether it be how our clients are perceived in the market? Whether their remuneration packages are in line with market conditions and competitors? Future talent acquisition opportunities?
When we have covered every avenue possible we provide the candidate with a detail addendum and company brief highlighting the challenges and expectations. We meet an extended list of candidates who meet parameters of the brief so that we are ensuring we haven't missed any talent.
Interviewing & Shortlist Process
Once we have agreed a final shortlist, Wallace Hind organise all interview times and dates with selected candidates. Interviews can be held onsite with clients, but most of our clients enjoy the use of our offices so that they can escape the day to day office distractions. All administration, control of interviews and meetings would be handled and organised by us. We carry out a full competency-based interview and can also provide Thomas International testing to support the selection programme.
On-boarding & Post Start Date
This is simple for us, no matter what timescales we keep in close contact with the successful candidates and encourage communication between all three parties up until start date, this ensures the security of the candidate starting.
Post start date, we encourage both candidate and client to keep in touch so that we can follow the candidates progress and success.
The Internet, and specifically online job boards have fundamentally changed the way a relationship works between candidates, clients and recruiters. Wallace Hind have developed a product that provides the best possible service for both candidates and clients utilising internet advertising, social networking and our many years of Search and Selection experience.
This product is called eSearch.
eSearch harnesses the immense power and functionality of a broad scale online advertising campaign to generate large responses for each vacancy. This is coupled with a highly skilled and experienced internal resourcing team that utilise social networking and online databases to make professional approaches to candidates that are unreachable through other means.
The process works because of our experienced team of recruitment consultants that manage each assignment, providing an exceptional service to clients and candidates alike. eSearch enables your personal consultant to produce shortlists of engaged, well-prepared and appropriate candidates for your specific vacancy, within an agreed time frame, working towards a targeted start-date.
Rather than a reactive, scattershot and somewhat diminishing database / contingency approach to recruitment, eSearch is a professional service, for professional businesses.
The eSearch recruitment process delivers the very best candidates on the open market rather than from a reactive diminishing agency database; ensuring that we attract only the best talent for our clients.

Project Brief: To work directly with their in-house recruitment team to provide them with extra resourcing skills and support. We market mapped the logistics industry including salary benchmarking, identifying and approaching key candidates alongside sourcing CV’s in order for our client to recruit extensively for a new project, filling 20 positions.
Case Study: Salary Benchmarking against specific disciplines and levels.
Client Profile: Food Manufacturing business T/0 £Multi-Million
Project Brief: A long standing client of ours had been struggling to convince the senior management board that his team’s salaries did not align with the current market rate.
By identifying a targeted list of local food manufacturers and relevant FMCG organisations we benchmarked the salaries of candidates across this specific discipline and level. With this market insight this resulted in the company providing a considerable salary increase alongside the introduction of a company car benefit for both his team and a pending offer he was due to make to a candidate, this resulted in him securing this candidate for his team.
