WHAT IS YOUR SERVICE?

At Cadent Sourcing, we provide Recruitment-as-a-Service. What this means is that instead of paying a fee per placement like you would in a fee-based agency, what we offer is one fixed price for all your hiring. We have various packages available depending on the duration of your hiring needs. 

WHAT IS SMART CANDIDATE SOURCING?

What we offer is a highly relevant shortlist of available candidates for your vacancies that are sourced through our Smart Candidate Sourcing tool. We’ve developed a tool called Smart Candidate Sourcing, this enables us to give you a greater number of candidates, whilst keeping everyone’s costs down.
 
It includes:
  • Job Advert Optimisation: During our sourcing for your job we are able to use data analytics to optimise the job ad, to drive only the top candidates
  • Job Push: We use intelligent PPC, keyword and job placement to make sure that we are attracting the top people for your job
  • Proactive Candidate Reach Out: We have developed extremely effective methods of targeting and communicating to top candidates; and it is proven to drive a greater number of people
  • Effective Candidate Screening: Our goal is to give you the best available talent on the marketplace. Through our sourcing we find a lots of great people, but our screening is specific to your job; meaning you only see a shortlist of great people.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO YOUR SERVICE?

  1. Advantage of a discount for signing up for a full year
  2. Fixed costs, opposed to variable/unpredictable costs
  3. Lower cost to any other shortlisting methods
  4. More Control to the client over selection process
  5. No Inflated fees

WHAT IF YOU DON'T FILL THE POSITION?

We do a full market search for available candidates within the parameters of the role. If we can’t find the right person, we’ll give you a free consultation on our market search. Always in this situation, either the profile of the role is too specific or the salary is not aligned to the level of the position. We’ll advise changing one of these, only after the market has been thoroughly searched.
 

I DON'T KNOW CADENT SOURCING, HOW CAN I GUARENTEE A PLACEMENT?

We are a new company, and our reputation is going to be very important to us. In short, we can’t afford to have failures. This is a new and frankly better way to recruit; we are committed to making this way the norm. When we take on a job, we will do a full and complete market search, if we can’t find the person, we are pretty sure that the person doesn’t exist.

I DON'T WONT TO PAY UPFRONT WITHOUT GETTING A PLACEMENT?

We give a sourcing service, and hence we charge in advance for this. We wouldn’t be able to offer these fees if we worked on a per placement, simply because we aren’t able to wait for the person to start and for your own credit period to lapse, before getting paid.

Think of this also: why do agencies charge so much? If an agency has 10 jobs on, they’ll source for all 10,but they are only likely to  place 1. So they have to recover their souring costs for all of those roles, in the one invoice they send.

That means if you get a placement, you are essentially paying for the failed sourcing for all of those other positions.

I LIKE THE SERVICE BUT CAN YOU GIVE ME A BETTER PRICE?

Yes if you take a longer package with us. Our 12 month service is the equivalent of paying €1,250 per month for the full smart candidate search for up to 3 positions at any given time.

If you are asking for money off, i’m sorry we do not negotiate. We have set our prices to be competitive. I’m positive you will not find any alternative that will do what we do, as well as we do, for a better price.
