Search and Selection for direct engagement by the client.

We understand that sometimes there just isn’t enough time to find and review ideal candidates; that’s what we are here for.

If you need to fill a position in a cost and time effective way, then the Search and Selection process that we offer is right for you. IRS will handle all measures; all we need is a job specification and a breakdown of the role requirements. 

Our Search and Selection recruitment service is designed to provide our clients with the ultimate in recruitment expertise. At IRS, we let the results speak for themselves.

Search & Selection Process

As well as providing a first class service and being a first for candidates and clients; we are also first for recruitment. 

Whatever level of complexity you require, IRS provides a range of comprehensive packages.
IRS Recruitment has an extensive database which has been built up with high-calibre candidates and managed for over two decades. Our specialist consultants have intelligent market knowledge and excellent contacts within the sectors we operate. We are equipped with a broad spectrum of networking capabilities that allow us to source candidates who are not actively seeking new job opportunities. We know your time is valuable and our service is designed to take away the hassle and find the right candidates for your business, allowing you to use your valuable time more effectively. 

We won’t bombard you with irrelevant Curriculum Vitae (CVs)

We will only submit those candidates who have both successfully negotiated our interview and are fully informed of the specific opportunity. You will benefit by knowing that your prospective candidates are interested, eager, suitably qualified/experienced and have a genuine interest in your vacancy.

The IRS Package

We will discuss your requirements with you and review the job and person specification to ensure that we have a full understanding of your requirements. We will then start to resource candidates, conduct initial interviews and consequently submit a short list of candidates who meet the specification. You can be assured of a fuss–free and efficient resourcing service, freeing up your time to manage your business activities.

Your Peace of Mind

The placement fee is only payable once a candidate has begun their employment with you. No-risk recruitment means accurate budgeting with the knowledge that your costs only incur* once the chosen candidate commences employment with you.
*excludes specific and agreed advertising costs and similar services

Third Party Advertising

**Advertising costs are payable at the time of placing the advert and are non-refundable.

Head Hunting Solution

There may be occasions where you need to fill vacancies by locating individuals who are not likely to be registered with recruitment agencies and will not respond directly to advertisements. The market knowledge and contacts that IRS have means that you can retain our networking capability to locate candidates not actively seeking job opportunities. Such an exercise allows you to discuss your opportunity with individuals that conventional recruitment methods will not be able to reach.

Your total cost will be no greater than the equivalent IRS fee for recruiting using our Database Search Solution. This is payable in two parts: a retainer fee equal to half the total placement to take on the project, and a second payment - payable only once IRS has successfully filled the vacancy for you.

Identified Candidate Solution

You may have knowledge of specific individuals that you wish to talk to and therefore have no need to embark on a full Head Hunting solution. However, it may be inappropriate for you to approach them directly. In this instance, we can approach them on your behalf and only reveal your identity once they have confirmed an interest in your opportunity. We will then seek the candidate’s permission and forward a copy of their CV to you.

A commission fee is only payable once the individual begins employment with you. This will be equivalent to half the placement fee quoted in our standard terms and conditions.

“Success will not lower its standards to us, we must raise our standards to success”

We provide our search and selection process for a variety of roles in all of the market sectors that we focus on.
