Services Offered to Companies
Our range of services are primarily
designed to assist employers by sourcing new employees, conducting interviews and
background checks, performing salary surveys and training prospective employees. Our goal
is to save companies the valuable time and resources that would be expended in reviewing
the large number of applicants responding to advertised positions.
We also conduct specialised searches that
ensure our clients employ the best-qualified candidates for their vacancies with minimal
If our data bank cannot source the
desired person, we would normally advertise in the media for suitable applicants. If the
client has already completed this phase of the process we can be of assistance in the
pre-screening of prospects. We will either conduct initial interviews if required or
provide a shortlist of individuals we consider best suited for the job.
We also offer specialised training as
requested by Companies and other entities. Some courses which we have successfully
conducted in the past include Finance for Non Financial Managers, The Companies Act for
Company Secretaries, The Companies Act and the Director, Beyond Secretary, Basic
Accounting and Budgeting, and several computer courses including Peachtree Accounting.
Individuals seeking assistance through
our Job Bank can do so free of cost. A
curriculum vitae along with a letter indicating the
individuals area or field of interest is all that is needed for us to source a
suitable position. The aim of the service is to place individuals in positions where they
will be comfortable and can perform adequately.
Placement services are not intended to be
simply the matching of applicants and vacancies, but the in-depth process which requires
initial screening for suitable applicants, a thorough interview, short listing
for a second
interview by the prospective employer, and recommendations specific to the placement as
may be necessary.
There will be need for regular conferring
with the client since our aim is to please the client completely.
To fulfill our goal
to serve the
community through the Firm and its employees, these services are offered free of cost
to individuals applying for jobs. Companies are charged a small fee for placement,
disbursements, time and expenses.
Whilst we do not guarantee that every
applicant will be matched with a vacancy, we certainly will explore all possibilities.
