The Recruitment Procedure

1. Speak with one of our recruiters

If we haven't worked with you before, we like to have an initial conversation so we can explain how we work and also understand how you do.  Our consultants are approachable, professional and knowledgeable and will be pleased to answer any questions you have. Our number is 020 7729 2200, Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.30pm. 


2. Complete a Vacancy Registration Form

To start the process, we ask you to complete a vacancy registration form. We work with many case managers and will ensure we understand how you like to work with each individual client from the start of the recruitment drive. This will include who is sent information, copied in to email and forms of communication. 

3. Home Visit:

Once we have your vacancy registration form, we will arrange to come and meet the client and hopefully you too! (for all permanent positions, throughout the UK). This is a really important part of our service; we know that for really successful placements, we need to match on personality fit just as much as experience. 

4. Job Description and Costs:

Following our visit, we will send you a bespoke job advert that has been created to attract candidates you will be interested in, plus finalised costs. Once we have your approval for the job advert and costs, we will get started on our search.

5. Attracting Candidates to Your Job:

Snap is known in the industry as the specialist agency and candidates regularly check our website for new jobs. We will place additional adverts as appropriate at no extra cost. Your job advert will be distributed to targeted candidates on our extensive database, built up since 2001. We always have a number of candidates who we are actively working with to find work.


6. Extensive Searches

Your designated recruiter will carry out extensive searches both externally and through Snap contacts and networks. They will long and shortlist applications and then interview potentially suitable candidates. We'll then verify documents, ID and start reference checks.


7. Sending Candidate Details: 

Once we have identified & interviewed potential candidates, we will send you and /or your client their full details. This includes CV, interview comments, candidate photo and and any references we have obtained. We will send as many suitable applicants as we have identified, we don't hold back any candidates. Equally we won't send anyone unless we really feel they are an appropriate match. It may be 2 or 3 candidates, or only 1.

8. Arranging Interviews:

If you and your client also like the candidates details, we'll coordinate interviews, but we do encourage you to facilitate this as soon as you can; good candidates don't hang around for long! You may wish to arrange a trial or 2nd interview for candidates you feel are potentially a good fit. It is usual to pay individuals for 2nd interviews / trials. 

9. Offering the Job

You may wish to offer the candidate the job directly or we are happy to do so on your behalf.  If they are not quite right, just give us your feedback, we'll speak with the candidate and continue searching - we are happy to do this, having the wrong person is worse than having no-one!

10. Draft Contact & Payroll Information:

Snap have had a long association with Nannytax / Stafftax and are a member of their 'Agency+' service.  As a member, we can help support clients and candidates with employment law inquiries they may have. For example enquiries such as holiday entitlement and statutory sick pay as well as support and advice on Employer and Employee rights. 

We appreciate case manager companies / solicitors use their own contracts. If there are circumstances where this is not the case, we can provide a draft contract of employment. 

11. After Placement Support:

We will contact you and/or the client when the candidate has just started to see how they are settling in, then after a couple of weeks and lastly after 3 months. Our involvement then drops back, but we'll be very happy to hear from you if you have any questions or just to let us know how things are going at any point.
