Being more than an agency...
What makes a supplier worthwhile?
In this market, Signet believe that as a supplier we should offer more than just recruitment solutions, we pride ourselves on being a partner to our clients businesses who can offer advice, and innovative solutions.
Recently we were approached by a client who we had worked with a couple of times across the last few years. Following a successful business acquisition they were looking to reduce headcount in the office and were making a number of redundancies. Like any company they wanted to ensure the redundancy process was handled sensitively and they wanted to offer support to the people who were leaving.
They called Signet and asked what we could do to help.
We devised a presentation designed to aid the team members in their job search, focusing on social media, CV skills and interview tips; we spent half a day with the business, initially presenting and answering queries and then spending time with the individual's one on one analysing their CV and giving help to focus them in their job hunt.
Attendees of the day commented that...
Jane provided some great ideas for CV writing and interview techniques which, when you haven't been on the job market for some time, were helpful pointers to getting yourself noticed by recruitment agencies and prospective employers. I still refer to the Powerpoint presentation she provided from time to time.
And the HRM added that...
We were very appreciative of the support that Signet were able to provide our colleagues during this difficult time. They approached the situation with all the professionalism and sensitivity required whilst ensuring the sessions were informative and constructive. They were very responsive to our needs and took the time to meet all the affected colleagues individually. This support was very well received by the colleagues and certainly updated everyone on the trends of the recruitment market and latest tools being utilised in the job search market. A big thank you to Signet for your continued support and taking the time to understand our business and needs.
Signet doesn't charge for this service, in fact payment was waivered in lieu of our Senior Business Manager having copious cups of tea on the day.
We are proud to be a recruitment consultancy that resources with integrity.
