Stepping towards recruitment success - the Challenge way

Taking the brief

We meet with you and the key stakeholders and formulate a detailed assignment brief. We will agree on the competencies that will be probed at interview to guarantee that your next hire will be successful and deliver a return on your investment

Candidate sourcing strategy

We guide you through the process of formatting and placing all advertising in relation to the assignment.

Competency / behavioural interviewing

Behavioural interviewing asserts that "the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance in a similar situation." This approach provides an accurate prediction, in conjunction with our other processes, of job performance. Behavioural interviewing allows the interviewer to gather evidence that the candidate possesses the critical capabilities required for successful job performance. It is these critical capabilities, called competencies that identify the very best performers in a given job.

Comprehensive consultant comments

We provide a detailed summary on all the short listed candidates. These comments will include a summary of the candidates' background, achievements, motivations and career interests.

Reference and background checking

Reference checking is essential in the recruitment process. We investigate the candidates' prior employment and speak with the relevant contacts to ascertain the candidates' performance against the key criteria and competencies required for in the position being considered. We can arrange and coordinate other police checks, in-depth background and history checks as requested by you.

Pre placement negotiation

We facilitate the offer and acceptance between you and the candidate. We will advise you as to the candidate's salary packaging expectations and options. We work with the candidate to evaluate this offer so as to "fireproof" them for any possible counter offers they may receive from their current employer or from other prospective employers.

Post placement candidate care

We put into place a formal review dates to measure candidate/client satisfaction. We maintain contact with you and the candidate to ensure mutual satisfaction. Should any areas of concern arise we will facilitate dialogue to ensure a successful long term placement where you will gain return on your investment.

What our clients and candidates say

  • “The team at Challenge Consulting made an excellent job of helping me to secure a job offer from one of the leading Energy Efficiency Consultants within Australia. They were always available despite an 8-hour time difference and had a good knowledge of the client and the role on offer. I was impressed by the way they understood the needs of the job on offer, helped me to clarify the scope of the work and to get my skills across in the interview process with the company. Working with Challenge was a refreshing experience compared to many recruitment companies I have spoken to in the past and I would not hesitate to work with them again.”
  •  
  • “Experienced, professional staff are always sent to us. The efficiency of the service is exceptional. Challenge Consulting has such friendly staff befitting the ‘boutique’ company profile, which is much more appealing than the big agencies."
