The Nextgen Leadership Way

When recruiting, we do things a bit differently

Laying strong foundations

We invest our time getting to know our clients’ enterprise, their expectations and their recruitment requirements before designing and agreeing a bespoke campaign. To attract the best candidates, we have to understand your business. The campaign that we design and execute will be a rigorous and systematic one, tailored to the client’s needs and situation.

Attracting the best candidates

We know that top quality candidates are in high demand and that we have to be proactive in helping candidates appreciate the benefits of a potential job move. We therefore work with our clients to build a comprehensive understanding of what will attract candidates to the vacancy. This insight informs any advert we write, documents we give to candidates and the conversations we have.

Finding the perfect match

We ensure that we search for candidates that both meet our clients’ requirements in terms of skills, experience and qualities AND also share the behaviours and values that fit with the culture of the enterprise. We understand that great enterprises are built on talented people who share the values of the business in which they work.

A hassle free approach

We aim to take away the pain, time and hassle associated with recruitment, leaving our clients to focus on running their enterprise confident that their recruitment needs are in safe hands. We value our client’s time. As a result, we will not endlessly forward CVs in the hope that one of them sticks. Every candidate we present will be thoroughly screened and match your criteria.

Value for money

We propose fee structures that offer value for money, share risk and reward performance, with a no-quibble piece of mind guarantee. We are results focused and back ourselves to deliver.

Openness and transparency

We are committed to transparency. We regularly feedback on progress and openly share campaign information with our clients.

Who We Recruit

We recruit across industries and functions. We specialise in the recruitment of functional specialists, graduates, professionals, managers and executives. We get real enjoyment and satisfaction helping enterprises find:

Individuals

Managers

Great managers, who can inspire their people, have a total commitment to excellence, continually drive improvement, and deliver the results to build great enterprises.

Leaders

Our Bespoke Search & Selection Approach

No two assignments we run are the same. Each vacancy is unique. And each client’s situation is different

We work in partnership with our clients’ management and HR teams to clearly identify their priorities and to develop a bespoke campaign to achieve these. The agreed campaign will take into account many factors including:

  • How quickly the vacancy needs to be filled.
  • The anticipated size of the talent pool available for the role.
  • The degree of involvement that the clients’ in-house team will play in the process.
  • Whether the recruitment is confidential in nature, thus requiring a high degree of discretion.
  • The mix of search, selection and headhunting to be used. We use a mix of advertised selection and research driven search. This includes targeted search (headhunting) if this is required.
  • The range of assessment techniques to be used.
  • The Tailored Services to be used.

At the start of every assignment we agree a brief with our clients. This will clearly set out the client’s priorities, the campaign we will run to deliver these, and the Tailored Services we will use.

Tailored Services

We offer a range of complementary services. Not all of these will be appropriate to every role or every client situation. These are discussed and agreed as part of the initial brief and built into the campaign as required.

Role profiling

Where a job description and person specification is not already in existence for a vacant role, we offer to prepare this.

Candidate information packs

Depending on the nature of the role, these can be very helpful in attracting quality candidates. They are more critical for more senior roles. These packs present to the candidate core information about the role, the employer and the benefits package. If relevant, information about the market, the company strategy and the growth opportunities for the individual is explained. The content of the pack is always agreed with the client in advance.

Psychometrics

In order to help ensure an exact match with the client’s requirements, we are able to build in the use of recognised techniques to explore candidate’s personality types and traits, management & leadership styles, and competencies.

Assessment centres

We are experienced in designing and facilitating assessment centres. These can be extremely helpful in gaining a broader understanding of candidates’ competencies.

Offer management

Some clients wish to manage this themselves. Others find that a 3rd party sitting between the candidate and themselves helpful to the process of agreeing terms with the candidate. We are happy to facilitate offer negotiations with the preferred candidate.

Reference, ID and financial checks

If required, we can manage the process of taking up reference and ID checks on our client’s behalf.

On-boarding coaching

In many ways, appointing the right candidate to a post is the start of the journey. The first few months settling into a role can be critical in laying the foundations for long term performance. We can support our client’s on-boarding process by offering On-boarding coaches to candidates during their settling in period.

Your Peace of Mind

  • We agree a clear brief with our clients at the start of every assignment. This clearly sets out what we will do to deliver against your requirements. We report on progress regularly, giving you peace of mind that the campaign is progressing and that we are doing what we need to do to deliver the agreed objectives.
  • We are confident in our ability to deliver your requirements and back ourselves to place quality candidates that will perform and stay the distance and back this with a 2 part, no quibble guarantee:
    • Part 1 – In the event of a candidate leaving their employment or their employment being terminated within a period of six months (including notice period) from the date of commencement of their employment on the grounds of poor performance or gross misconduct, we will find a replacement candidate at no extra cost provided we are notified in writing within seven days of the termination.
    • Part 2 – Should we be unable to find a suitable replacement candidate, and provided you have not used the services of any other recruitment agency or caused unreasonable delay in the interviewing process, then we will offer a rebate scheme which will refund up to 85% of the placement fee depending on length of service.
  • We always agree the fee structure up-front as part of the initial brief. This covers both Placement Fee and costs of any Tailored Services. The structure of our Placement Fee reflects the nature of the assignment and the sharing of risk and reward. Our approach is a flexible one and we are happy to consider either fixed fees or a percentage basis. We aim to offer value for money to our clients and to be fairly rewarded in the process. That is the basis for great service and enduring partnerships.
