Ascent Sourcing is an informed choice for your organisation when looking for a solution to your hiring requirements. Key factors of the firm’s good reputation in the market place are:
Ascent Sourcing utilises a variety of approaches from focused headhunting, extensive networking and organisational mapping to comprehensive database search. Consultants are experts in these methods and derive great satisfaction from the resultant challenges applying pro-active rather than re-active strategies.
Applicants are only introduced to a client if they fulfil the requirements, fit within the culture of the organisation and are motivated by the opportunity. This is how such a high conversion rate of client interview to candidate placement is maintained.
Ascent Sourcing has at its disposal a wide variety of technical tests on all current technologies. These tests help to accurately shortlist genuinely skilled candidates and ensure that the level of potential applicants is of the highest quality.
With a candidate network and strong relationships that stretch globally, Ascent Sourcing can search overseas and move people internationally. Highly experienced in facilitating a smooth and practical re-location process, clients can be confident of the firm’s expertise in delivering candidates across multiple locations.
Ascent Sourcing makes a point of being an advocate for your business. From the way it briefs candidates and markets opportunities, the firm projects and promotes a professional image, conducting all work in an ethical and responsible manner.
All senior staff are well versed in the art of head-hunting and are capable of opening up communication with the top performing people in the sector. Ascent Sourcing recognises that the majority of talented candidates are usually employed, and are not promoting their availability to the marketplace, instead they are concentrating on their current role. Only consultants who have credible market knowledge, as well as a respected opinion and track record are able to find profiles of such caliber. By presenting the role directly and in an informed manner, the targeted candidate is much more likely to enter into dialogue. As a consequence Ascent Sourcing is granted exclusive consent to represent their profile, or will be offered high class recommendations which will lead to other potential applicants.
The Search and Selection team has over 15 years deep knowledge on the methodologies which can assist you in identifying candidates who are not attracted by generalist advertising and job site searches. One of Ascent Sourcing’s senior consultants would be readily available to talk you through this complex process to help identify, market map and present strategic solutions tailored to your individual requirements.
Ascent Sourcing is able to facilitate and manage the entire recruitment programme (organising open days, carrying out comprehensive reference checking, and providing detailed management reports) on behalf of its clients. Frequently this occurs at the start of a new project, when significant numbers of individuals need to be recruited rapidly, although it can also be on an ongoing basis. This practice of retention can be a very valuable and cost effective, especially when line managers and human resource professionals are experiencing high levels of interruption and distraction from pushy and irresponsible agents.
Ascent Sourcing has an on-going investment programme in this rapidly changing medium, monitoring and procuring the most appropriate channels of information.
The consultants are specialists in the areas they work in; all are drawn directly from the industry they cover or have a track record of success in their specific recruitment sector. Their depth of expertise, enthusiasm and approachability makes Ascent Sourcing a thought leader and a fount of invaluable insider knowledge on market trends.
