SF Group – The Candidate Experience

I am lucky enough to work with some fantastic candidates and I was thrilled last week to have secured one of them, his dream assignment!  These arrived on my desk yesterday with the note “thank you from the bottom of my heart…you’re a star!

At SF Group, we pride ourselves on candidate care and work hard to give every candidate a positive experience throughout the recruitment process.  A significant proportion of our candidate generation stems from referrals and many work exclusively with us for two reasons:-

  1. We take the time to understand and really listen to a person’s needs/motivators and exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We work with the best businesses in the local market from small SME’s to blue-chip multi-nationals. We offer a candidate the most important thing when job hunting; choice.

Our service doesn’t end at the offer stage either; we frequently meet with candidates to offer market insight, salary advice (we are one of the rare few who take the time and go to the expense of preparing a Midlands-focused salary guide – get in touch if you would like a copy), LinkedIn training etc.  Our candidates really are king!

So to the candidate who sent me the flowers (you know who you are!), thank you, it really has been a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to hearing about your success in your new role.
