Consult Inhouse provide white-label inhouse recruitment solutions to empower our clients to identify, attract & hire candidates directly to minimise their usage of third-party suppliers, namely recruitment agencies, to reduce external costs, to enhance the company brand, and to ensure any hiring manager or candidate (whether successful or not), has a positive experience and feels they have been treated professionally.

A detailed audit is conducted to identify a client’s historic recruitment methods, recruitment challenges, costs and process failures. A robust customised approval and recruitment process is proposed based on our finding, to meet their current needs and to facilitate future growth. It is this process that offers a consistent cost effective, quality measured recruitment solution that also provides greater control and forward planning.

Our target audience are companies who either do not have a dedicated talent acquisition (TA) function or where their TA function requires re-engineering to meet their business objectives now and in the future.
