Seven reasons why you should retain Jepson Holt
1. We offer you a wider range of ways to grow your business. We look at the whole market. We can identify individuals, teams or businesses (“People”), who seem best suited to add value to your business in the areas you have selected. We speak to them about you and only you. We explain what you can offer them and your strategy for growth. The best opportunities are often not “on the market” and may not be aware of you and what you could offer them. They may not all want to come and speak to you now but they will have the opportunity to do so and to find out more about you.
2. You can acquire People who fit your business better and stay longer. We spend more time than agencies in speaking to People and getting to know them and what they can offer. Our greater understanding of your business and the market means that we can find People who fit better with you. If they fit better they will be happier and stay longer. Our guarantee means that you and we want the same thing.
3. You are more able to grow your business in the way you want. Our approach is a proactive one. We work with you to identify what People you need to move your strategy forward and we go out and find them for you. That puts you in control and helps your strategy stay focused.
4. They will generate revenue and improve your profitability. It takes 2 or 3 years for new hires to settle in and reach their peak financial performance. If those hires fit better and are more settled in your business it follows that they will be more profitable and generate more revenue.
5. Your brand and reputation as an employer will strengthen. We work as your ambassadors in the market. We speak to some candidates who will recruit in the short term. Others we are speaking to about the medium term. Having professional ambassadors in the market, talking about you on an ongoing basis will improve your reputation and brand as an employer and help to attract the kind of talent you want.
6. You can do this at a cost, which is known and affordable. We always agree the parameters of the work we will do and a price for doing it. Wherever possible we will agree a fixed price which represents the full range of factors in the piece of work and makes the cost clear to you at the outset.
7. We guarantee each of these. We can help you to achieve your objectives and will align our interests with yours by the way we structure our fees. We can agree a proper guarantee period so that if a recruit does not work out you will not be left to pay the whole fee. We are very happy to share the risk with you.
We represent talented senior lawyers.
We add the most value where clients retain us to help them find the people they need.
For various reasons, life does not always work that way.
We also represent strong candidates who have emerged from retained projects or have been referred to us.
Also, some of those working in our career development programmes reach a point where they need a new and different challenge.
We help our candidates look at the best firms in the market to meet their needs.
That could create an opportunity for your business.
This is also a good way to begin to do business together and could start a relationship that could lead to a lot more.
