Recruitment Process - Premiere People

Recruitment Process

We are committed to providing a first class service through our tried and tested recruitment process.

We provide the highest calibre staff at the correct grade, competence and skill-mix via a service that not only meets but exceeds your expectations.

Our recruitment and selection process is designed to offer a true end-to-end service. We will support you from the management of workers right through to in-house skills assessment or training, while providing detailed management reporting throughout the process.


Sourcing

We provide a bespoke service to each of our clients, working with them to thoroughly identify their requirements when discussing a new position. We identify the particular skills, qualifications and personality traits you require, taking a thorough specification before sourcing candidates.

We have access to a candidate resource pool of over 300,000 from our Group in-house system. We also create a full sourcing campaign utilising a variety of tools to identify the right candidate, such as:

  • Job boards
  • Social media
  • Word of mouth
  • Our group network
  • Branch walk-ins
  • Media advertising
  • Open days
  • Jobcentre
Screening

We provide a candidate vetting process tailored to your requirements. We conduct in-depth assessments of workers and have extensive experience in candidate skill and culture analysis.

Our recruitment process encompasses all the regulatory requirements necessary to comply with legislation. This mitigates the risk of legal exposure for our clients, providing assurance and peace of mind.

Eligibility to Work Checks

  • ID card
  • Passport
  • Visa checks
  • National Insurance
  • Proof of UK address
  • Birth certificate

Selection Testing

We provide numeracy and literacy benchmarking for our clients and are able to tailor assessments and testing to specific requirements.

We have testing service, which helps us to identify the right talent for your needs and can improve retention, increase productivity and provide the most competitive workforce.

Our assessments and testing can help you improve your selection decision measurably. As no two organisations are the same, we understand that culture, expectations and skills all vary too.

We are able to tailor the testing and assessments to each client’s requirements, providing better quality candidates as well as faster responses.

We can provide:

  • Bespoke assessment design and delivery
  • Psychometric testing
  • ISV FastPath Testing
Interview

Our trained consultants conduct face-to-face interviews with all candidates. We can run these interviews prior to introducing candidates to your business, utilising a competency-based question structure or bespoke questions agreed by you.

Compliance

Premiere People is audited on a regular basis by both public and private sector organisations, and we have a 100% pass rate.  We retain this standard due to the support of our in-house group audit and compliance teams. Our consultants ensure all workers are thoroughly vetted prior to placement. All candidates comply with the Immigration and Asylum Act requirements. We always ensure that we follow all current employment legislation and we are registered with the Regulation Quality Improvement Authority and the Recruitment & Employment Confederation.

The registration process is also supported by our software system, which prohibits the progression of a candidate until the adequate legislation checks have been verified.

To comply with the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), our software systems provide several AWR solutions, including pay parity, the 11 week rule, the Swedish Derogation and comparator management. Our AWR candidate tracking functionality includes a traffic light system which distributes alerts at 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 weeks to ensure appropriate action is taken. This is summarised within a client dashboard.

We can provide fully integrated online time and attendance systems, and manage staff attendance or performance issues.
