Thank you for working with Rubicon
We’ll either be sourcing candidates for permanent vacancies you have, or are arising, or else we’ll be supporting your business with temporary staff.
Established in 1982 we know what we’re doing, we do it well and we work with a wide range of exceptionally good businesses. We’re easy to work with, care about delivering a good service and we’ll consistently do what we say we’re going to do after listening carefully to what your requirements are.
Whether you need a permanent professional for one of your back-office teams, a manager across a wide range of sectors or multiple skilled workers for a factory or warehouse, we have experienced Consultants ready to work with you.
Our success is in large part due to us seeking to understand the needs of our clients and candidates so that we can match carefully across both camps.
We achieve our consistently high customer satisfaction ratings by:
Continuously asking questions and listening carefully to what we’re told!
Before we begin to source people to work within your business we’ll want to know as much as possible about your company/department.
Starting with the basics we’ll scrutinise a Job Description and help you produce one if it’s missing or out of date. We’ll explore the benefits to working at your business and identify everything that will make your company somewhere good people will want to join. Alongside the Job Description we’ll produce a Person Specification that identifies the behaviours, cultural fit and personalities of those candidates most likely to fit in quickly and perform well. This will be followed by us gaining an in-depth insight into the operational workings and cultural quirks of your company.
The more access we have to your business the better we can understand how it operates and ultimately introduce only the most suitable potential employees to you.
Our candidates are also interviewed to gain a comprehensive understanding of their level of experience, core competencies and talents.
Shaping our recruitment strategies around what we learn
Depending on the role, we’ll tailor our searches to find the right individual/s to suit your business.
Our database of local candidates is both large & relevant to the sectors we operate within and it’s this database that our Resourcers first approach before our experienced Headhunters apply their craft to access candidates not actively job seeking. All of this is accompanied by concurrent activity whereby adverts are posted on multiple job boards and active social media channels are used.
We also have an established, loyal and reliable community of workers available for temporary assignments to cater for short-term uplifts in workload through to ongoing contracts and maternity cover.
A dedicated account manager/s will be assigned, and they will establish the most appropriate contact frequency based on your individual preferences and business needs. If you need us to contact you daily, we will. If once a week is sufficient, that’s fine too!
Our model is to access the best talent out there and to make introductions.
If you’re in need of friendly hiring advice, without charge, then please join our Hiring Managers Workshop (link) where you’ll learn about the current marketplace and leave better prepared to structure effective recruiting plans, conduct interviews and avoid common hiring mistakes.
Within our industry differentiators fall within three core areas:
I am very happy with the way that Rubicon operates and qualifies their candidates. Most agencies just put a header and footer onto a CV without understanding anything about the candidate and the requirements of the role, however, Rubicon ensures that their candidates are suitable and well prepared. We will definitely come back to Rubicon with IT roles in the future.“
Thank you so much for your work on a role. Rubicon have worked extremely hard. I know it was a tough role to fill and it was worth the wait for the two fantastic stars we saw today! Really pleased Amy has accepted and we are looking forward to having her start with us soon! Thank you so much Rubicon.“
We’ve been really impressed with the service Rubicon has provided, so much so that we will be recommending them to a couple of contacts we know who are in need of their help. We’ve worked with the specialists across three different sectors who have all provided high calibre candidates for interview. With one particular role we were so impressed with the candidates we interviewed, we couldn’t decide between them, so we offered both! Thank you for all your help.“
Engineering Team Leader
Very impressed with the calibre of candidates so far and based on the first interviews we’ve liked every person Rubicon have put forward. This is great for us having spent weeks interviewing non-impressive candidates from other agencies. Very pleased indeed!“
This is the first time we’ve used a recruitment agency for recruiting within the operations division and Rubicon has made it a positive experience by providing quality candidates, being in constant communication and placing a candidate well above the standards that we normally see.“
