What Makes Us Different…?

So you’ve heard it all before – we’re specialists in our markets, we’re highly experienced and networked better than anyone else; we work in partnership with our clients. We recognise that these things are all important to you, and they are to us too - but we think of them more as hygiene factors – a checklist of minimum requirements that any recruiter must tick if they’re serious about what they do. Do these claims make a recruiter unique if we’re all saying the same thing?

How many recruiters claim to truly offer something different? And how many of those have the track record and proof to back up their claims? At New Chapter, we believe we do. Here’s how:

  1. Our approach makes dealing with us a unique experience.  Our vision is to help individuals and organisations achieve their ambitions – we see our role as an integral part of an individual’s journey through life and a company’s journey to greater success. This vision translates into a service standard and commitment to excellence that is unrivalled in the market. And to prove this isn’t just “words” read our Promise to Clients, Candidates and Employees.
  2. We deliver – every time!  We’re proud to boast a 100% record of success on retained assignments. And as if this weren’t compelling enough, we’re also delighted to report that over 75% of our placed candidates can still be found in the same organisations two years on, with over half of them having progressed to more senior roles.
  3. We have a unique talent pool and access to exclusive talent.  Whilst most recruiters now report that in excess of 50% of their candidates come from social media sites such as Linked-In, in 2011/2012 only 10% of our placements came from such channels. Our 60,000 strong candidate database never lets us down!
  4. We can demonstrate the value in what we do.  By developing our trademarked “five2” approach to recruitment, we’re not only able to demonstrate real value for money, but also proof of process giving you the reassurance that we’ve done everything possible to deliver the very best our industry has to offer:read more about the Five²™ approach.  And we’re prepared to put our money where our mouth is – we offer an industry leading six month guarantee period!
  5. Our business is built on ethics. Let’s be honest – our industry is often criticised for its tendency to over promise and under deliver. And occasionally, perhaps this reputation is deserved. We understand that ethical business practices must be the cornerstone of our business if we are to defy the critics and delight our clients. We boast a thorough CSR policy that is monitored and regularly reviewed and we‘re committed to ensuring that our skills have a profound and positive impact on our wider community as is evidenced in our active partnership with “Tomorrow’s People”. We also ensure that we act ethically in every interaction with our key stakeholders, and we’re prepared to back this up; our Promise to Clients  features a commitment that we will not headhunt from our clients – one of the most common complaints about recruiters we hear today.
  6. Our culture is truly unique.  Whilst everyone says that their people are what make them different, it’s the fact that our people love working for us that makes us stand out from the crowd. We don’t just offer a great environment where our people are supported in meeting their career goals with on-going training and development; we also ensure our people feel personally fulfilled whilst at work – how many companies give their employees an additional two paid holiday days a year to devote time to charitable causes? Evidenced by our IIP accreditation, our people are motivated, fulfilled and committed – the kind of people you want to work with.
