PERMANENT PLACEMENT

PERMANENT PLACEMENT

At Social Housing Recruitment we offer a knowledgeable and thorough service to secure you the right employees who will add value to your organisation for many years to come.

Through our years of experience, we understand that our job is to find people who not only have the right skills and experience, but most importantly have the personal attributes and behaviours to ensure the correct cultural match.

Access to our far reaching, but high-quality candidate community

A significant portion of the UK’s workforce are passive. Simply, this means that they are quite happy where they are, but would consider an external opportunity if it was exactly what they were looking for at that stage in their career.

We’ve built a world-class network of candidates who fall into this category and whilst are not actively applying for new opportunities; will engage with a recruitment partner who holds credibility due to the relationship that has been built over time.

We are fortunate enough not only to have a network of established professionals and new entrants to the Housing industry, but we are so often referred to other individuals to consider when we are recruiting.

In addition to this, we have a wide variety of cutting edge searching tools, to ensure we can assess the whole candidate landscape.

We take this work away from our clients, ensuring that rather than producing a shortlist of candidates; we present those who are the very best available at that point in time.

For all placements we offer rebate periods to protect and de-risk your investment.

TEMPORARY PLACEMENT

TEMPORARY PLACEMENT

Are you in need of a Social Housing interim immediately?

We guarantee a fully qualified shortlist within 48 hours of accepting an assignment.

We understand that requirements can arise suddenly due to absenteeism, unexpected peaks in your business, skills shortages or simply an increased workload and we are able to respond to your needs quickly and efficiently.

You only pay for the time work
By taking on an interim / temporary worker, you only pay for the hours that the person completes. You can hire workers for the time periods you require – it is flexible to suit your demands and completely up to you.

We take care of all requirements
We can help with your daily and seasonal requirements, whether your need is one person for one day or an entire team for a long-term project.

All Interim / Temporary workers are checked and interviewed
To ensure both a skill and personality match, all of our temporary workers are thoroughly interviewed, reference checked and appropriately tested, before you meet them.

Our cutting edge, video interview software allows you to see the candidate virtually, allowing speed to hire where location or availability would normally get in the way.

TEMP TO PERM PLACEMENT

TEMP TO PERM PLACEMENT

This is the perfect solution if you are unsure whether you need a temporary or a permanent employee.

Get a temp now, and decide later
Initially, you get a temporary worker provided by Social Housing Recruitment. This allows you time to assess your workload and requirements and then decide whether to engage in permanent recruitment at a later stage.

Assess the worker well before hiring
You get the chance to establish first-hand, whether your temporary worker has the skills and attributes that you require before committing to the offer of permanent employment.

It is a great opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ and assess whether the worker will be a long-term asset to your business.

EXECUTIVE SEARCH

EXECUTIVE SEARCH

Social Housing Recruitment's Search Team, are able to support senior and niche appointments across all Directorates within an organisation, with a 100% success rate across all assignments.

How?

Our recruitment process, using cutting edge behavioural profiling, allows us to scientifically review the job and agree with you on the behavioural characteristics of the required candidate before we go to market. 

We then compare this against the shortlisted candidates, and competency interview them to determine how closely they match the desired skills, experience, AND behaviours.

This process allows us to significantly increase the retention and productivity of new senior level hires and allows us to offer a guarantee of up to one year free replacement. We currently enjoy in excess of 98% retention of candidates in post after 12 months.​

Free replacement period

We are proud of our service and confidence of our searches. Therefore for full Executive Searches, we offer clients up to 12 months, completely free replacement if the search doesn’t work out

Knowledge of market

We have actively searched the UKs best leadership talent and thought leaders in the Social Housing industry and are keen to share these exceptional candidates with organisations that match their ambition and vision.

We believe in this ever-changing market, knowledge of the industry and the key leaders within it are crucial to sourcing for the best talent, rather than engaging with a more generalist search firm.

Most influential leaders are not only achieving outstanding success but are often highly engaged in their current role and therefore not actively pursuing new opportunities. A credible introduction, often through personal connection, to reach out and engage with these individuals allows us to bring exceptional talent through to our clients.

Interim Assignments

The process for recruiting a permanent Executive can take 6 or even 12 months depending on notice period. Therefore, if this timescale causes increased risk to your organisation we have a portfolio senior and experienced Interim Executives who can support you in the meantime.

Market mapping

Comprehensive remuneration advice using significant data of our own placements in relevant vertical markets to ensure benchmarking of positions are accurate

Understanding of organisational structures and changes within your competitors to ensure you are well informed for all decision making.
