Our Role as Recruiting Experts

All our professionally trained recruiting experts focus on an industry specialism. They become experts in their field; knowing the market and roles available, the leading companies, the skills required and the key people involved in the recruitment process.

Our consultants work in close partnership with senior decision makers to understand their client’s needs and deliver an outstanding recruitment service. These relationships and those they develop with their candidates are vital to a consultant’s personal success, and the success of our business.

How We Do It

Our recruiting experts have access to the industry’s best technology and most cutting-edge resources to help them win business and achieve success.

Our consultants have access to the biggest and best candidate database, which is powered by Google and LinkedIn, which means, if you are successful and become part of our team, you have access to the widest pool of people and the most current data available which will help you quickly find the right person to fill the job and ahead of your competition.

We have unlimited access to external advertising and the ability to instantly and easily send targeted and high quality communications to customers to generate information and achieve results. Our consultants benefit from Hays’ unique relationship with LinkedIn – we’re the number one most followed recruitment company globally and we’ve been recognised as the most socially engaged recruiter.
