As an employer, what pre-screening can I expect for a potential candidate?
At KingsleyIrons we pride ourselves on our quality versus quantity approach. Once we have a clear understanding of the requirements of the role and the client, we embark on various sourcing methods, including headhunts for top talent where necessary. A thorough pre-screening is conducted and relevant documentation obtained from candidates before we shortlist the top contenders per position. Shortlisted candidates are then interviewed and referenced before meeting with clients. Depending on the client and their specific requirements, various further background screenings may take place. This generally includes verifying qualifications, conducting criminal checks, and more. We provide the client with a pack of all relevant documentation pertaining to the shortlisted candidates, after which an offer is usually obtained. With equal emphasis on the needs of our clients and the needs of candidates, we keep in touch with both parties after a successful placement to ensure a smooth transition on both ends.
