Are you holding out for more candy?

What are you going to do with your candy? Hoard it, share it or scoff it? Or are you holding out for more?

Many companies delay making a decision to make an offer to qualified candidates, even when they have a shortlist of top talent in their grasp. For some reason they think if they just wait another day a better CV will arrive tomorrow. 

Truth is Halloween has passed, there’ll be no more trick or treating until next year. And if you’re holding out for better prospects you’ll lose the option to the top talent available now. 

Langley James gives you a shortlist of top candidates vetted and summarised to include benefits of hiring. If you want to hire people worth recruiting, decide now.  

Skip the trick, score the treat

It’s all great fun until you’re the one who ends up with the trick instead of the treat. The hire that went wrong, the person who can’t do the job after all.

If you want to skip the trick and score the treat, then you need a recruitment partner who not only knows the IT industry and how to identify a high calibre candidate, but also someone who gets to know your business well enough that they can help you clearly define your IT recruitment needs.

We test, evaluate, vet and interview thoroughly so that the candidates we present as a shortlist are qualified and suitable. We eliminate the tricksters from the list and present only the treats. People worth recruiting!

Should you hire the Grim Reaper?

What’s really scary? Making the wrong hire.

It not only costs the company money but also reflects poorly on your ability as a hiring manager. So how can you see behind the disguises that so many candidates put forward?

A qualified recruitment partner not only knows the industry, but also takes the time to get to know your company and specific recruitment needs.

At Langley James our detailed testing and vetting process takes a critical assessment of candidates skills, experience, abilities and personality so that we know they can not only do the job, but will also be a good fit and add value to your business.

We specialize in IT recruitment, finding people worth recruiting.

What do burgers have to do with recruitment?

It’s Burger Day and you know exactly what kind of burger you want; a double patty with melted cheese, caramelized onion and all the fixings! You can almost taste it already, can’t you?

That’s what it’s like when you’re looking for the right person to join your IT team. You know what you want, but finding them, well…isn’t always that easy…unless you have the right recruitment partner.

Someone who uses all their resources to understand exactly what you want. Who takes the time to understand the how, the what and the why of your business, not just the who.

And then sends you a shortlist of candidates summarized by their key attributes and benefits, and why they’d be good for your business, not just a pile of CV’s.

This is Langley James Recruitment and this is what we can do for you. Since 1999 we’ve been recruiting for the London IT industry.

Talk to us, we can help you find the right people for your IT business. Junior, intermediate or senior, our database is extensive and we work until we find the people who match exactly what you have in mind.
