"As a business we had not used a head-hunting service before. The reason we decided on this approach to recruitment was that we had a critical role to fill - manager of a care home - as soon as we could, as the business had issues that needed to be addressed as quickly as possible. The traditional recruitment process of placing adverts, sifting through piles of CVs and application forms, arranging interviews and wasting time with candidates who did not fulfil the criteria but had applied anyway, was not an appealing prospect. I was impressed with what David Colley had to say about the process, and with certain key issues such as the best candidates being people who are not necessarily looking to change their job, and also the geographical targeting of candidates within a radius of our location. The big surprise came when I was sent the first batch of Profiles to review. The quality of the candidates being put forward was far higher than I expected, and I was truly surprised at the number of quality people within commuting range of our business. It was difficult to select between the high quality candidates put forward by Hunter, but we are very pleased with our decision. Our eventual recruit has been in post nine months now, and has proved to be an excellent choice - it is no exaggeration to say that she has turned things around significantly. Overall my experience of using Hunter was completely positive, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
"I just wanted to take this opportunity to convey my sincere gratitude to you and your team in respect of the two recent home manager placements you secured on our behalf. Both managers have brought with them many years of successful care home management experience and consequently, the positive improvements they have already made to my services is clear for all to see. Some three months on since each candidate’s employment, I can truly believe the bold statement made in your marketing literature that the initial investment with yourselves will pay for itself in the long term – as I now have a strong working relationship with both candidates that is producing better outcomes for each home’s service users and contributing positively to the company’s bottom line. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who is looking for a first class, experienced and competent home manager to run their service.”
"When I was looking to hire a Care Home Manager for my home, I was clear that I needed a very specific type of person. I had a dedicated consultant from Hunter Human Capital working on my behalf handling the position, really taking me through and guiding me every step of the way and we had a fantastic working relationship. Things are working out really well with the person I hired through Hunter, and I would have no doubts about recommending Hunter Human Capital to any employer looking for a Care Home Manager with the specific skills, knowledge and attitude needed to successfully run their Care Home."
