Enjoying the special relationship

When you become a Pursuit client, you very quickly find that there is more to us than meets the eye. Of course, as you would expect, we are a carefully hand-picked team of recruitment consultants – and we specialise in matching the ideal candidate with every job opening – but we also like to become a part of your extended HR team, and that can mean getting involved in more than just recruitment!

For a start, as many of our long-time clients could tell you, Lorraine has become something of an unofficial sounding board for many an organisation’s entire recruitment strategy. With her more than three decades’ experience, and her highly informed, unbiased global view of recruitment, Lorraine’s clear-sighted advice has been sought thousands of times over the years, much to the benefit of her grateful clients.

The low-down on employment law

However, we also like to help practically, which is why we have several practical added bonuses for our clients. Perhaps our best-known benefit is the series of highly successful employment law seminars which we run from our conveniently located base in the heart of Essex.

For many years, we have provided free access to our employment law specialist, Cas Carrington, partner in specialist law firm KLC Employment Law Consultants LLP, through our highly popular seminar programme. This Autumn is no exception, as Cas will be joining us once again on 3rd November 2023, at the Plaza in Braintree. You can reserve a place here. We recommend that you do so ASAP, as these places get snapped up quickly!

Keeping you in Mind

We’re always thinking about how best we can help you, and we are aware that for many of our clients, HR issues arising from employees’ mental health are a growing challenge. This year we started a new initiative, providing access to a mental health specialist through our relationship with Mid and North East Essex Mind.

We held a one-off Mental Health Awareness in the Workplace seminar, which was very well attended. At least, we thought it would be a one-off, until one of our clients asked if we could arrange a workshop for a dozen of their senior managers. This smaller workshop was a huge success, so we are happy to offer this facility to our key clients for smaller groups of managers and team leaders from any department, helping to equip them to recognise and address mental health issues among their team members. Please feel free to enquire about this if you have a number of managers who you think would benefit from a workshop of this nature.

The executive service

As many will know, at the end of 2022 we launched our new Pursuit Executive division, to identify, attract and place senior executives in key positions on company boards and in senior teams across the UK. Whether your need is for a permanent team member or an interim senior manager, we can help.

As well as finding you a range of ideal candidates, we can also provide a full range of executive recruitment services, including candidate testing and referencing.

Get to know us better

Whenever we find candidates and put them forward for interview, we always do our best to ensure that they will be the right fit for your team; and that means getting to know and understand you and your requirements. Our aim is always to save you time and stress, only putting forward candidates who will make a genuine positive contribution to your business.

We always do all we can to get to know our clients – so why not get to know us better? It’s a special relationship well worth cultivating, and one we believe you’ll value.
