Our continual programme of advertising and candidate contact ensures that our database is continually refreshed with up to date information on candidates who are proactively looking to make the next step in their career path.
Our standard processes are the search and selection from a database of candidates, selection from Referrals, selection from companies downsizing, advertising on our web site, advertising on various Internet and news group sites and CV screening and candidate profile.
All executive search assignments are undertaken by Consultants with extensive senior appointment recruitment experience and relevant market sector knowledge.
Connect IT first evaluate the position and make a decision to which sourcing method is most applicable: - Media advertising, internal database, Executive search or Website advertising.
The chosen recruitment method is dependent entirely on the role and volume of recruitment.
A result of advertising for key appointments may be that a large number of hopeful applicants respond. If handled directly by a company, it could prove to be a major drain on their resources and management time. The purpose of our service is to save our clients’ time, money and effort by allowing them to continue with their core roles and functions whilst we apply our expertise and resource to screen and select suitable candidates.
The service involves an initial meeting, where we will review the assignment and can advise on the job profiles, candidate specifications and remuneration packages. This is followed by a comprehensive advertising, response handling, pre-selection, interviewing and short-listing process.
We plan with the client, the timescale of the requirement, the volumes, selection criteria etc. and incorporate complimentary services to include; the design and production of advertising, negotiation and placing of advertising in local, national and trade press, recruitment evenings / open days, technical testing and psychometric testing.

We create individual microsites with specific URLs to successfully advertise your Company and vacancies available. These microsites are branded to include the client biography, logo’s and any additional company information the client wishes to share.
We will work with you to define your job descriptions and then create and design your adverts.
The benefits of online advertising through Connect IT are: -

Connect IT recognises that business' needs to resource, administer and manage its temporary and permanent workforce effectively.
The process a business uses to manage its recruitment method is vitally important both in terms of reducing time and increasing quality. It also reflects on the business as a whole to potential recruits and can be a valuable tool it securing the right hires. The way in which a business attracts and manages new talent is often the difference between hiring the best talent and losing out to its competitors.
Connect IT believe you cannot succeed with process alone you need people to make the process work. The interaction and communication between a business and a recruitment partner has to be the most important function of the arrangement.

We work closely with our clients to manage their recruitment consolidation initiatives across their business and can be instrumental in providing an on-site consultant to manage and co-ordinate the transition of contractors from a variety of agencies to the newly appointed PSL.
On completion of the transition project, Connect IT will provide full documentation that will include full breakdown of contractor’s dates and rates (pay and charge) and any issues that had to be overcome during the process.
