What are the benefits of working with Litton Andrews?

As experienced specialists in Medical/Healthcare recruitment, we understand the ins and outs of your industry – and we take the time to understand your specific job requirements too. With a huge pool of talent to draw from, you can count on Litton Andrews to provide you with  the best choice of quality candidates.

At Litton Andrews, we handle every aspect of the process, from placing advertisements to arranging interviews, reference checks and follow-ups. At every stage, we’ll give you honest, realistic advice on the ever-changing talent market. There are other occasions where terminating, managing poor performance or contact negotiations may not be a skill set or desire of the practice.  Litton Andrews consultants can help with managing your team to better performance.

I have my own HR Manager, why would I use a recruitment agency?

At Litton Andrews, we understand organisations with their own internal recruitment teams do most of their recruiting themselves. We can offer assistance when candidate pools are underwhelming, the role is confidential or when you need us to supplement your own recruiting during  business expansion or restructuring. Litton Andrews has strong candidate sourcing channels and is dedicated to finding you the best candidates. It’s all that we do. We often work hand-in-hand with HR departments to find the best candidates for you.

What type of fees are involved in the recruitment process?

Our fees are calculated as a percentage of the successful candidate’s salary package, and this is found in our Terms of Business which are signed by each Client/Organisation – to ensure that everyone is aware of the costs up-front.  Listing a job with us and asking us to put forward candidates for your job vacancies are at no charge – you only need to think about costs if we present you with someone that you want to appoint to your organisation.

What happens if the candidate you place with us doesn't work out?

We guarantee our services, so if things don’t work out with a candidate within the first 90 days of their employment with you, we will replace the role for FREE.

Our approach to head-hunting...

At Litton Andrews we pride ourselves on our ethical approach and we have a policy against poaching and/or head hunting. Our goal is simply to find the right person you need, exactly when you need them.

How much information do I need to provide to list a job advertisement?

Our consultants know what questions to ask. A face-to-face meeting with your consultant is preferable as we want to understand the key “selling points” the role has to offer so we can attract the right candidates.  We can also arrange for more in depth job profiling to explore the competency requirements of the role and we can compare this to your shortlisted candidates. These assessments are an extra expense conducted by a third party, and they will require input from some of your current staff.

What is your screening process?

Our screening process is thorough. We are evaluating not only the specific skill sets and experience you’re after, but also the candidate’s character, background, and personality traits that we uncover during the interview process. Because our recruiters have such extensive industry knowledge they can accurately assess who will fit your job requirements BEFORE you take the time to meet the candidate.  In addition, we also offer a full range of Medical Administration (including Medical Typing) and Microsoft Office Suite skills testing on ALL candidates who register with Litton Andrews.

What happens when your consultant presents candidates to me?

If it is the first time you have worked with the consultant - be realistic. There will be a need for detailed discussion about the candidates before you interview them. This is to check that the consultant understands your needs and has found you appropriate candidates. As soon as you have decided you should proceed to interview, we will organise it as soon as possible.

How can I get the most from my recruitment consultant?

Communication is the key; use your consultant as your advisor. Be honest with your consultant about the type of candidate you need in your business. Your consultant is operating in your market and will be able to advise you on realistic salary levels and requirements. As the market changes your needs may change, and your consultant needs to know as soon as this happens. Your consultant’s role is to find the right fit for your business and negotiate on behalf of both parties. This means that there needs to be frequent, open and honest communication between you and your consultant.

Where do you advertise? Is there a cost for this?

We are one of the only specialist medical recruitment agencies currently advertising on the top Internet job boards as well as our own website and social media to source candidates. We cover the cost of advertising for recruitment unless you wish to specifically brand an advertisement.

What exactly is included in the recruitment process?

  • Prepare and place all ads
  • Manage all responses
  • Conduct relevant searches
  • Interview all candidates
  • Present a shortlist of candidates.
