Why calibrate with us?
Our professional reputation in successfully placing people in the right positions means that we attract high-caliber candidates. We’ll take time to put a clear brief for each role, and understand our client’s business needs and company culture. In every case, we’re looking for the perfect fit: someone who will excel in the job and make a difference to our client’s business. By the time a client meets with our candidates, whom we have carefully selected for a role, we are confident that they have already been efficiently matched.
We only send a small number of selected candidates for each role rather than a pile of curriculum vitae for clients to sift through. On permanent positions, the efficiency standard we aim to reach is a ratio of 3:1 – for every three candidate curriculum vitae our client sees, they will make an offer to one of them. For temporary roles, we work to 2:1. Still, we would generally reach 1:1, and quite a few of our contractors will get offered temporarily to permanent positions because they become valued members of our client’s team.
We have found that our careful matching process means that both employers and employees are happy to return to Karen Collier Careers time after time to help them find their way to the perfect employee or the ideal job. Candidate service is as important to us as client service, so each of those selected to join our talent pool is looked after with the same excellent service we offer our clients.
Wherever I go I call on Karen for her services and her team and the group of people she has on her books. She provides the first-class service and only sends some people she knows I would work well with. The brands have been varied – Animal surfwear to Thomas Pink menswear, as well as womenswear.
I can’t rate Karen highly enough and hope to keep working with her wherever I end up…
