Our Services

We understand that no company is the same with different priorities that are often determined by resource, budget or by the nature of the assignment.  Our clients therefore need their recruitment partner to provide them with choice as well as service, quality and value.

At Ragged Edge we offer three different recruitment packages that provide our clients with choice and flexibility around their very unique and specific requirements.

Value Package
Our innovative 'Value' package provides a low cost fixed fee solution for clients with a limited budget. Your job brief is advertised on our own website as well as one of the UK's premium job sites with over 12million registered candidates. It is also sent to our exclusive Talent Network. Our Recruitment Partners forward all applications and support you with interview scheduling and candidate communication.

Professional Package
Our 'Professional' product provides a fully managed solution whereby our team manages the hiring process 'end-to-end' ensuring that you only have to deal with the most suitable candidates. As well as providing a comprehensive database search including our exclusive Talent Network we also undertake a search of passive candidates and contact our extensive network for referrals. We deliver the utmost candidate and client care alongside providing the best active and passive candidates in the sector.

Executive Package
Our 'Executive' service is recommended where there is sensitivity around the role or where the skills and experience are very specific, rare or senior. Working on a retained basis, we commit the highest level of resources in return for an advance payment of the agreed fee from the client. We allocate a Recruitment Partner specifically to the assignment until it has been completed. Prior to undertaking the search we would meet with the key stakeholders to ensure that we are fully aligned with your requirements for the role, preparing a detailed job brief and marketing material that is then agreed with the client. We then contact our Talent Network and use our recruitment experience to identify and engage with the best active and passive talent within the market.

Interim Placements

Benefits of Using an Interim
When you are missing key personnel we can provide the expertise and individuals with the right skills when you need them most.
The clear advantage of an interim placement is the ability to quickly bring in experienced individuals to work alongside your existing team, introducing new skills and working experience.
One of the key benefits of an interim is the independent view that they can bring to your business.  A talented interim candidate can provide tangible short-term benefits. Interim candidates are cost effective because they are a variable cost, not a fixed overhead.  In addition, they offer flexibility in terms of their availability, working hours, work location and role.  The short term nature of their contract also offers room for manoeuvre when necessary.

How the Ragged Edge Interim Process Works
When it comes to filling interim positions, we work with you and the interim candidate for the duration of the assignment.  We seek out the most suitable candidate for each interim role from our Talent Network of experienced candidates.  Once we have established who is available we shortlist and send you details of candidates to review.  As well as helping to select the correct person to meet your interim requirements, our team also assist during the selection process with administration and references.
During the assignment we keep in contact with both the client and the candidate to ensure that we identify and can deal with any potential issues promptly.

Succession Planning and Talent Pipelines
We provide guidance and advice to our clients on the many different aspects of succession planning and talent management including staff retention, recruitment and selection and forward planning. Working closely with the client we will build a long-term strategy tailored to their unique requirements, ultimately providing a pipeline of talent that will last into the future.

As part of the process our long-term partners provide us with a forecast of their potential future needs and we then seek to build targeted networks of potential talent to meet these requirements. As a result, we can introduce candidates to our clients in advance of their needs or immediately after a vacancy becomes live. This process cuts down the time to hire dramatically, while giving us more time to qualify the best candidates to fit the job and culture of our client.
