Discovering Your Individual Needs
When was the last time a recruitment consultant hot-desked from your office so they could fully immerse themselves in your company and culture? Or spent time with you, learning about your personal goals and career aspirations? At DB Charles, we don’t specialise in particular sectors, we specialise in recruitment. We believe recruitment expertise means gleaning insight from first-hand experience of your particular circumstances and turning that insight into an effective plan of action.
Creating an Effective Recruitment Framework
Does your business have a recruitment process in place that will help you attract and retain the best talent? DB Charles can help you create an effective recruitment plan (or analyse and improve an existing one) to ensure you’re fully prepared at every stage of the recruitment process – before, during and after. Together, we’ll devise an efficient approach that achieves the results you’re looking for with minimal disruption to your business operation.
Putting the Plan into Action
We’ve determined your individual needs as a client or candidate and put a detailed roadmap in place, now we need to execute the plan. Doing the recruitment legwork yourself can be time-consuming, while partnering with a 3rd party agency can lead to mixed results, so what’s the solution? By continuing to partner with DB Charles, you can rest assured that our tailored consultancy services will result in a faster, more effective hire, and a better candidate experience.
Continued Support & Aftercare
We've found the perfect match for client and candidate, and the job offer has been accepted, but the process doesn't end there. Some agencies will cut ties with the candidate and client once their fee has been taken and the agreed refund period has elapsed, but that certainly isn’t the case with DB Charles. We're in it for the long haul. If this sounds like the specialist recruitment service you've been looking for, let's make good things happen...
DB Charles took the time to understand my experience, my expectations and what motivates me, and by taking that time to understand me as an individual I was put forward for a role that not only aligned with my skill set, but also my personal development goals. My experience of working with DB Charles Recruitment was very positive and through their encouragement my own self confidence has grown.
Without DB Charles I feel we would certainly have recruited the wrong person. David took the time to fully immerse himself in our business so he'd understand the specific requirements of the role, while setting realistic timelines of what and how he would be doing things. His patient approach meant he presented an initial CV for a candidate that was perfect for the role.
David is a reassuring, encouraging and reliable communicator who treated me as an individual, addressing any questions or concerns I had however small. I have recommended DB Charles Recruitment to friends looking for new challenges, and would recommend them to any business looking to recruit.
From the first meeting to establish the type of employee we were after to the follow-up calls/emails after successful recruitments, DB Charles have been a pleasure to work with. Their professionalism and commitment through every step of the process has made things very much easier for us, and they've found us some very strong candidates giving us some tough recruitment decisions. We will certainly work with them again and would definitely recommend to others.
The level of service was great. I really enjoyed the journey from our first conversation to the wonderful news of getting the job. Always willing to work around me, even if that was at 11pm, the personal service I received helped me a lot. I would recommend DB Charles Recruitment to anyone looking for a job – the result I got was the best Christmas present I could have asked for!
Recently, we asked DB Charles to recruit a new Business Manager for our company, but it became clear following our initial brief and their questioning that we still had some questions to answer internally. DB Charles' consultation and ensuing insights proved invaluable and gave us a much clearer idea of what we were looking for. I haven't seen this level of consultancy from a recruiter before.
Since helping us recruit for a role, DB Charles have been checking in regularly, both with me and the candidate, to ensure we're both getting what we expected, which I'm pleased to report we are. Their expert advice and guidance, outside of just recruiting for the position, has been very refreshing and invaluable to a business of our size.
David's passion and drive to find us the right candidate has enabled us to recruit quickly and find some great new employees. His aftercare is like no other and we look forward to using him again soon.
David contacted me at the right time when I was looking for a career change, he took the time to listen to me and everything I wanted to change and wanted to take with me moving forward. He contacted me about a specific position which is something I was always interested in but had never thought of going for, with his coaching and advice I was offered the job and I have never looked back. He offered great after care and made the whole process smooth and not daunting and would recommend him to anyone looking to make a change in career.
Coming into the busiest period in our trade, we needed staff who were available quickly, had the relevant skill set including certain licences and the ability to learn the role and our products swiftly and independently. DB Charles Recruitment confidently understood our requirements and the urgency of the situation and worked tirelessly to find us a range of excellent candidates. Having thoroughly vetted everyone interested in the roles, DB Charles Recruitment only put forward the very best candidates they found which ensured we were able to fill our roles quickly and with the right people.
Having worked with many other recruitment agencies in the past, DB Charles Recruitment has proven to be by far the best. It is refreshing to deal with someone who genuinely cares about the roles which they are recruiting for and takes pride in the calibre of persons put forward for the roles. I'm pleased to say that all our new staff have proven to be excellent choices and are now very valued members of our company.
David has found us a number of great employees over the last couple of years. His approach to recruitment and aftercare is like no other - highly recommended.
David is always a pleasure to work with. His professionalism and commitment through every step of the recruitment process makes things very much easier for us, and he has found us some very strong candidates giving us some tough recruitment decisions. Would definitely recommend to others.
I found David to be an exceptionally conscientious Recruitment Consultant whose approach was to ensure the right fit for both myself and my now employer. He took the time to fully understand and appreciate the role, from the opportunities for personal growth to any challenges or obstacles I might face.
David helped me securing my first job after university. He was able to get me an interview quickly, provided support prior to and after starting my job, and managed to negotiate a higher salary. David also keeps me updated about how my employer believes I'm getting on during my probation period. A brilliant recruiter.
David really took the time to dig into what I was looking for to make sure that the company would be a good fit for me and vice versa. I had a two-stage interview with the recruiting company and was offered the role by the time I had got home. David was consistent with relaying feedback I had received and prompt with arranging the interviews. I wasn’t ever sat wondering what was going on.
