You can expect to be involved with our clients and candidates on a daily basis, delivering high standards of service to both. There is an unusual dynamic of providing fast-paced delivery to clients and candidates around interim placements, balanced by the detail-focused process in delivering our bespoke search and selection process around permanent recruitment.
Every day is different in its challenges around clients and candidates, yet similar in how we engage both with our professional yet personal approach.
What are some of the key skills you will need to work in People Resourcing?
You will need to be a confident and capable communicator, to deliver our key messages to clients and candidates alike. Engaging effectively with people is crucial, across our customer base (clients and candidates), especially when it comes to selling our ‘headhunt’ service to clients, and then selling the job itself to people who are not actually looking for a new job.
Other than that you will need good time management to get the job done, and the commercial skills to ensure we provide cost-effective yet profitable business.
What Pennington Choices does differently to other businesses?
People Resourcing is both rewarding and frustrating in equal measure. Rewarding in the satisfaction of finding the right person for the client, and in finding the right opportunity for the candidate. Frustrating because we are dealing with people, whose decisions we may not understand yet need to respect. Clients and candidates like the way we work and appreciate that we are different from the recruitment industry standard.
Our unique offering is that we are a property surveying and consultancy company that recruits; we are experts in our client’s sector (social housing) and understand their challenges, meaning we save organisations and people time and money. This is reflected in our culture, which is based on a flexible yet focused approach that is supportive of personal and professional development.
