Our differentiating factor in this category is not only the
selection of high talent individuals who meet the technical
requirements provided, but who also have an excellence in
attitude. For more mature companies that take pride in their
people and who identify that specific behavioural skills are
essential for continued success within their environment,
our consultants ensure that a professional and truly caring
and pro-active service is offered to both the client and applicants.
This ensures an accurate matching of like with like, and ensures
the positive building of the client's reputation.
Assignment based recruitment
Assignment based recruitment is a process whereby vacancies
arise on a random basis, but an on-going commitment
between The People Business and the client is established
and a trust partnership formed.
Through our in depth knowledge of the IT industry,
our database expertise and our extensive networking
capability we are able to source, interview, perform
a DISC profile and provide reference and credit checks
(where requested) as part of a highly professional recruitment
Believing that the reputation of our own organisation and
that of our clients can be directly reflected by the business
partnerships that we form, our consultant's ensure that they
create a positive effect on the successful marketing of the
clients environment and ensuring the provision of accurately
As references testify, companies who have effectively partnered
with us comment on the effectiveness of building a relationship
with ourselves, and utilising our inbred commitment and pro-active
customer relationship to build a competitive advantage.
The normal fee charged for assignment-based recruitment is
20% of total cost to company. Where The People Business Group,
along with a maximum of 2 other suppliers are entrusted with
filling vacancies, as and when they arise, this fee can be
negotiated. Should the client wish to deal with a larger array
of suppliers, should there be little commitment to the recruitment
process or little time taken in ensuring that the dignity
of all applications are upheld then we are still willing to
be utilised to fill the more difficult technical or managerial
vacancies on an assignment basis, however our fees in these
instances cannot be negotiated.
Recruiting & Developing (Integrated Recruitment Model)
As we uniquely positioned within the field of Executive Personal
Coaching we are able to offer a highly specialised recruitment
service that not only sources the most suitable applicant
for our clients but also ensures highly cost effective rapid
personal development for the individual concerned. Working
in partnership with the Executive Consulting division we offer
the services of experienced coaches who have been personally
supervised throughout the practical 6-month executive personal
coaching academy offered by The People Business Group.
The process commences with a leadership behavioural assessment,
which is completed on all potential applicants. As part of
the placement process and depending on level, either a 6-month
coaching contract or a series of development modules on leadership
and management skills is offered.
Through working with a professional Executive Personal Coach,
each successful applicant is thus enabled to more effectively
assimilate themselves into the clients environment and a dedicated
focus is made in ensuring the development of appropriate behavioural
and business focused skills that are aligned with the requirements
of the position and the environment. Continual feedback and
updates are provided to the key sponsor from within the clients
setting. Once established within the environment, and where
appropriate, 360-degree surveys are also conducted as part
of the process.
This service is only offered to clients on an exclusive assignment
basis. The total cost of the recruitment and the coaching
intervention combined is 25% of the total cost to company.
As the coaching is often outsourced to a suitable member of
The People Business Coaching Fraternity this fee is unfortunately
Project based recruitment
Where a client is undertaking a large recruitment drive then
we offer project based recruitment services. Through in depth
consultations a senior professional shall provide a dedicated
and tailor made service that reviews the scope of the project,
offers expert insight into the current state of the market
and the availability of the skills required and who is able
to complete a comparative study providing an accurate up to
date insight on remuneration.
Due to our established reputation within the market, where
appropriate, we can operate as a representative for the client
and effectively build up relationships with other professional
recruiters taking charge of the total project and ensuring
that all positions are filled in an efficient manner. This
service can also include performing all first line interviews
in order to ensure that there is no unnecessary time wastage
through inappropriate interviewing by the client. Recommendations
and management consultations on the various positions are
all part of the service.
The charge for these services is dependent upon the nature
and depth of each individual recruitment project and will
thus be negotiated up front in order to ensure cost containment.
Making full use of our in house marketing department, we
offer recruitment advertising for our clients where we believe
that this approach is appropriate. The creation of raised
visibility can be effectively utilised as a marketing exercise
where staff, clients, competitors and the market in general
can be informed of developments through a carefully worded
and well positioned recruitment advertisement.
Our preference is to partner our clients in the marketing
of the positions and as our name is associated we take full
responsibility for the effective communication to all applicants.
Our modus operandi is to respond to all applications, whether
they are deemed to be suitable or not. This we believe elevates
the client's level of professionalism within the market. Continuous,
on-going feedback is thereafter also guaranteed to all applicants
and our client as part of the process.
Where an assignment of this nature is undertaken, the joint
commitments and expectations are documented up front in a
comprehensive proposal that also provides insight and recommendations
as to the timing, recommended placement of the advertising
and the costs involved. Successful campaigns of this nature
have been undertaken with leading organisations such as Microsoft,
SAP, JD Edwards (PeopleSoft) and Price Waterhouse Coopers.
The differentiating factor offered in this service are the
design and copywriting skills, which efficiently depict the
needs of the client, incorporating these into an effective
marketing and recruitment campaign.
As we can populate our own internal database through such
an exercise a fee of 10% is charged for each successful placement
made. The client takes responsibility for all advertisement
