Agency in Focus – Selection Partners

Selection Partners is a recruitment firm with a real difference. Whilst many recruitment agencies offer value added services such as salary surveys or job descriptions, which clients rarely use, Selection Partners, provide a massive range of consulting services used regularly by their clients, such as psych testing, executive coaching, project management of recruitment services, leadership training, outplacement, team development, 360 reviews and so on.   Speaking to the owners it is obvious that providing more consulting services builds trust and develops deeper client relationships that benefit everyone.

The business has two divisions staffed by very different types of people with differing skills sets; the recruitment side and the HR consulting side. The recruiters find that conversations with clients are easy as they are generally more open to talking about how Selection Partners might help them identify top talent or develop their existing employees, or discuss how executive coaching could benefit them personally in their career.  The conversations don’t always need to be about recruitment.  Lets face it clients are always recruiting!

spSelection Partners services are broadly split into

  1. Executive Search & Recruitment
    2. Career Coaching
    3. Outplacement
    4. HR Consulting,

Another differentiator for Selection Partners is that they also provide services to candidates such as executive, career and interview coaching. They have also created an on-line job search system “careering” which is used by hundreds of candidates teaching them how to find a new job in today’s market.  As a recruiter, this means if you cant find a candidate a role, you can still offer them support.

When the two directors set up Selection Partners four years ago, they wanted to create a business staffed by experienced consultants who genuinely enjoyed working with people, who were ethical and who wanted to have fun.

Today Selection Partners has a loyal database of clients and has delivered great work in all four areas of the business nationally and overseas.  Recruitment spans mid to senior level roles in engineering and construction, professional services, retail, supply chain, Human Resources and logistics both in contract and permanent roles.  Clients are mid to large corporates.

Selection Partners vision is to double in size in the next three years and be recognised as a talent partner employing driven, smart and experienced recruitment consultants, who share the owners passion for providing great service and being innovative in the solutions they offer.

To be successful at Selection Partners you need to be able to think beyond being a recruiter, to being a talent partner.   As the recruitment landscape changes Selection Partners is differentiating itself by providing a range of services that truly add value to their clients and allows the recruiters to offer more than just recruitment.
