A new service from Aspire to work in partnership to support early-stage growth for new businesses.
Aspire appreciate that not all early-stage businesses have the cash flow to support their initial hiring needs, and finding and attracting the right talent is a critical part of ensuring the business succeeds at its most vulnerable phase.
Aspire offer a bespoke retained and exclusive service aimed at delivering talent on time without the immediate hit of the associated recruitment fees.
We will meet to fully understand the business plan and how the planned roles fit in and agree how to spread the cost of our services over a reasonable period of time so that they don’t create stress on your cash flow. This enables early-stage enterprises recruit the talent they need and spread the cost of recruitment over time.
We will then be retained to understand, identify, attract and engage.
As recruitment consultants we need to discuss each role specifically and gain the full picture of what you are trying to achieve. We need to understand:
Your business plan
You as an employer
Your approach to diversity and inclusion
The skills and competencies required
The remuneration and benefits
The training and career opportunities
How the role fits into the organisation
When you need the talent in place
The impact of missing your deadline
Your selection process
How you will make recruitment decisions
How you onboard new talent
With this information we then start to identify the talent using our database of over 350,000 candidates, our dedicated Talent Hub who seek out new talent via advertising and LinkedIn and from referrals, recommendations and networking.
All candidates are thoroughly assessed, and profiles are created containing the vital information employers need such as reasons for leaving, motivations and salary expectations.
We also offer video vignettes so you can listen to how candidates answer four key questions relevant to their role to help you decide who you want to invite to interview.
By understanding everything about your role combined with the motivations and needs of the candidate we are able to act as your employer brand ambassador and attract the candidate to your role.
As a start up, you will have no employer brand and many candidates may deem joining a risk and less secure so this critical part of our role is extremely valuable.
With the candidate now enthused by the role we gain their permission to represent them and introduce them to your organisation.
The candidate experience is key so as we engage them into the process it is vital we work in partnership as the candidate moves through the various stages of the process.
We will organise the interviews, provide and pass on feedback, manage the offer process, counsel the candidate through resignation, check them on their first day and stay in contact with both parties for the initial three months as part of the onboarding process.
The aim will be to continue to work in partnership and help grow your business.
