Frequently Asked Questions

How much will this cost us?

We perform all the tasks connected with recruitment for free. You won’t pay a cent until we find you a talent you’re 100% happy with. All the costs are then clearly stated on the contracts we sign with your organisation. There are no hidden or extra charges, and our fees are extremely competitive.

What if the person you place with us doesn’t work out?

With our 99% placement success rate and years of experience in medical recruitment in Australia and New Zealand, it is almost a certainty that we will find just the right candidate to fill your vacancy. However, in the extremely rare cases where a candidate doesn’t work out, we will be happy to give you a refund if notified during the early months of the contract. Alternatively, we could swiftly supply you with another talent to fill the position free of charge.

We have our own Human Resources staff so why do we need your services?

You may have highly competent HR staff, but we can still help if your team is snowed under with applications, short of time or unable to find a talent for a certain role. Perhaps your organisation is expanding and your HR department needs a little extra help to ensure every vacancy is filled with the right person. We are experienced at liaising effectively with in-house HR teams.

How do you select candidates?

We examine the CVs of candidates carefully to ensure they have the right skill sets, qualifications, characteristics and experience to succeed in the position on offer. We then follow this up with a rigorous interview (see below). By doing this, our consultants – with their extensive experience and deep knowledge of the New Zealand and Australian medical sectors – make sure the candidate is a close fit to your requirements before you spend your time talking to them.

How do you go about interviewing candidates?

We conduct in-depth interviews with all candidates to make sure that they have the skills, knowledge, experience, work ethic and personal attributes needed for your organisation. We interview each candidate, usually by telephone, for about an hour though this may vary slightly depending on the role. When we feel a candidate is suitable for the position, we will liaise with you and the talent so you can arrange a brief final interview. This is so you can make sure you are completely happy with the person we’ve suggested or so you can make a choice from a shortlist of several candidates we’ve compiled.

What information should we provide to help you find a talent?

Our expert recruitment consultants know what to look for to ensure we find the best person for each vacancy. Having said that, we will have a brief telephone conversation with you so that we fully understand both the precise responsibilities and the ‘selling points’ of each position. This will enable us to attract the best talents and help us make clear to the candidates the exact duties involved in each role.

How can I make the most of your recruitment consultants?

Our consultants are deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of the medical recruitment process and are always on hand to advise you. Please feel free to ask any questions, express any doubts or ask for clarifications. We can advise you on suitable salary levels, the best ways to meet your requirements, and trends and changes in the market. If your needs or requirements change, please inform us as soon as possible. Frequent, open and honest communication is likely to achieve the best results.
