Active, Looking and in Your Area

Active, looking and in your area

An actor has an agent, a writer has an agent, a gym fanatic has a personal trainer and candidates have agents too!

After reading an article which says we should be changing the way we do recruitment and finding the candidates not the positions, we at Langley James were very pleased with ourselves as we have been working this way for years!

Typically, recruitment agencies find the position, then find the suitable candidates.  Yes at Langley James we do work this way too but in recent years we have also been doing the opposite.  We find suitable candidates that are active, not passive and looking for work in your area then let you know about them.  You may well have seen them -they get delivered right into your Inbox either in the form of a Top 5 which can have a variety of candidates from IT Support, Project Managers and Developers or a single candidate.

We contact people we think are superstars, find out where they want to travel to, what industry, skill set and much, much more and then tailor-make a search to find the companies that tick all their boxes.  So, if one of these candidates lands in your Inbox, you know they are interested in a company just like yours – don’t forget you check your spam, you don’t want to miss out!

Some say what cupid is to love, we are to candidate’s careers!

By working this way, we ensure that we keep the candidates best interest at heart.  It’s no mystery that the recession has left a number of talented individuals who are brilliant at what they do without a job.

Our huge internal database includes over 100,000 candidates including permanent and contract IT Support staff as well as developers, built over decades and is continually growing with the best talent.

Out there in the job hunting world there are at least 20 main job boards, how does a candidate choose which ones to register with? Typically a candidate will register with just 3 and if your position is not advertised on one of their chosen sites, you may never see their CV.  At Langley James, we use the top rated job boards which include Jobsite, Monster, Reed, JobServe, Total Jobs, LinkedIn and Indeed to ensure we always find the best candidates.
