Engage Talent Partners Launches Exclusive Partnership Recruitment Model

A new business offering a more joined-up approach to recruitment has launched in Aberdeen.

Scott Leonard, founder and recruitment director at Engage Talent Partners, believes his firm's exclusive partnership model is the way forward in finding the best fit for clients and candidates alike. The company has already secured projects in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Great Yarmouth and London.

Scott, who was previously associate director with Aberdeen Appointments Agency (AAA), said: “The offering from Engage Talent Partners is different. Our business model ensures we focus on fully engaging with both clients and candidates.  Our approach ensures we don't engage in a race to send CVs to clients.

“Following consultation with our clients we agree timescales that allow us to execute a full search process. It's a measured, structured approach to find the best person with the right skills for the role, but also one who will also fit into the culture of the business and work well within their new environment.

“Our approach is a far better strategy to the age-old problem of finding good people. It's about much more than dipping into a database and producing a list of names. It's about finding the right person for the position – and that person may not be online or on a database.

“Every recruitment project begins with a consultation to establish what exactly is required. We take into account not only skills and experience but also company culture, personality and team fit. All candidates are interviewed by us specifically for the client's requirements before being selected. It's the level of service I would expect today if I was to use a recruitment company.”

Engage Talent Partners is looking to engage with small, medium and large businesses with its exclusive approach. Its client industries include oil and gas, manufacturing, food and drink, finance and IT, although its tailored approach supports recruitment for clients regardless of sector. The business sources mid to senior level management, sales, operations, engineering and business support staff.

The company is offering four levels of project delivery to support clients of all sizes and budgets – Engage Talent, Retained Talent, Talent Partner and Managed Talent.

Scott added: “The commitment from the client in the beginning leads to all parties being focused on achieving the best results. Our model, as opposed to the contingency option, is a far more positive and sustainable way to recruit and leads to long-lasting, trusted relationships and continued success for a company's recruitment strategy.”

Engage Talent Partners is based in Chapel Street.
