how we work

our services & solutions

our services

  • Contingent


    Nothing upfront, we invoice you on the candidate’s start date.

  • Exclusive


    Nothing upfront, you commit to using us exclusively and get access to a range of additional services and benefits.

  • Retained


    Deposit upfront, balance invoiced on the candidate’s start date. Either you’ve used us before, love us and want even more from us. Or perhaps you have a particularly tricky hire and want access to our advisory services and video platform.

  • Project


    A monthly retainer followed by a reduced placement fee for each successful hire. This is for companies needing to hire a high volume of candidates and need a truly bespoke arrangement. We can offer a dedicated resource to spend time on-site (virtually or in-person depending on location) to manage every aspect of the recruitment process from planning to delivery.

EVP & Recruitment Process Advisory
(Retained, Project)

The first step for any business that wants to become world-class at recruiting is to get your brand and EVP right. You might be the best company in the world to work for but unless you put the right messaging out, your target audience will never know. Our experts are on hand to work with our Retained and Project Customers, helping you improve your website, careers page, social presence, interview process and onboarding, ensuring you are set up to attract, engage and retain the best people.

 (Contingent, Exclusive, Retained, Project)

We are committed to truly understanding your business, your hiring needs, and your motivations. We will question, develop and advise, deploying our extensive marketplace knowledge- attuned to current demands, we will ensure you are ahead of the curve, not just reactive. Bringing a transformative approach to recruitment to the table, we will ask you to consider talent acquisition in a new manner- one that will accelerate your potential.

(Exclusive, Retained, Project)

There is a difference between finding the best talent and finding the best available talent. For our customers that opt for our Exclusive and Retained services we will put a dedicated team together to map out the companies and locations that are likely to have the talent you want. This is for those that will only consider the best. This phase typically takes 1-2 weeks, and we can offer a full report with the Retained and Project service.

(Contingent, Exclusive, Retained, Project)

This is where the magic happens. We deliver you well qualified candidates and offer you regular catch up and review sessions to fit your schedule, typically weekly or bi-weekly. We are on hand to help ensure the interview process runs smoothly, you are fully informed and challenges can be addressed such as competing offers, concerns from the candidate, and pressing timescales.

(Exclusive, Retained, Project)

Ever decided someone is not right 5 minutes into an interview? Our video platform, NS Connect, allows you to watch short videos of the candidate meaning you can spend your time meeting only those that fit your needs and the culture of your business. The videos would typically save you hours over the course of a recruitment process and gave candidates the chance to create a better opening impression of themselves over a CV alone.

Post Placement
(Contingent, Exclusive, Retained, Project)

It’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you later! Our mission is for clients and candidates to have a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship. We offer regular post placement reviews with our clients and candidates to ensure everyone is supported in the best possible way. What can be learned, what can be improved, let’s work together to get better.
