Clients

We take pride in what we do and our service reflects this. Our philosophy is simple – we find the best possible people for your business. To do this need to fully understand what you are looking for and why. We engage in a dialogue with you, consulting at every stage of the process to ensure success and building trust. We do not merely send CVs, for each and everyone of our clients we deliver a bespoke service based on your own individual needs and requirements, thus ensuring the process of finding the best staff is a pleasurable and rewarding experience.
 

How We Work

DPS uses a highly effective approach to finding the best talent for each vacancy. We provide each client with a shortlist of the best candidates within agreed timescales. We provide a full recruitment service, including identifying and screening candidates and managing the full recruitment process through to offer and post placement. You will also get a call from us on the start date of the new employee to ensure you are satisfied with our service.

The specified deadlines for vacancy prioritisation, interview times and specified start dates are all integrated into our processes. We work closely with each client to ensure that top quality candidates are found and presented; based on your exact requirements.

Here’s some of what we undertake as part of our recruitment process: -
 
Database
The best candidates are not always seeking a new position, so we have a database of candidates whom we have registered to enable us to access the right candidates immediately. DPS maintains an up to date, "real-time" database of candidates, who have registered with us. This database is constantly monitored and updated. We also provide a facility to our candidates, for ongoing registration against future requirements.

Networking, referrals and head hunting
Candidates who are not on the open market are sourced from referrals of our contacts and from our industry experience.

Online advertising
DPS advertise online with appropriate job boards ensuring each vacancy achieves maximum exposure to the right audience and attracts the best candidates.

Candidate tracking
We utilise the latest recruitment technology, which means we are always one step ahead. Our CRM system allows DPS to track the availability of the best candidates and the whole recruitment process for each individual vacancy.

Job alerts
Candidates register their interest in certain skill sets or job titles on our website and they receive job alerts via email, SMS or RSS feeds as soon as any relevant roles are registered onto our database. This allows us to proactively contact candidates quickly and effectively for positions, which they have already shown an interest in.

SMS texting
DPS has implemented a super-fast, efficient SMS facility. This method of communication has enabled us to maximise the technology used to reach candidates. The functionality is accessed via the candidate record on our database and allows us to reach the best candidates, ahead of our competitors.

Social Media
We are constantly carrying out research and development into the best available on line tools to enable us to attract the best talent for our clients. We currently utilise Social media such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to name but a few!

Research & Development
We are dedicated to constantly improving our systems and we invest massively in the most effective, cutting edge technologies; to attract the best talent for our clients.
