The Shortlist Service

If you wish to be in control of the recruitment process but have limited time/opportunity to promote the vacancy and shortlist candidates, this option is ideal. It is a very popular option with Case Managers.

Following an online home visit/consultation, your recruiter will create a bespoke job advert for you that will be widely promoted: Sent to targeted candidates on our extensive database built up since 2001, via our social media platforms and on premium external job boards and of course, featured on the Snap Care website. Snap Care is well-known in the industry, with candidates regularly checking our website for new jobs.

We will then shortlist your applications, calling candidates to confirm they meet the objective criteria for the role as set by you. You'll receive details of all Shortlisted candidates and then can pick up the recruitment from this stage.  

This service comes with a 30-day guarantee.

Cost: £1,980.00 plus VAT per placement

See Agency Fees for more information including discounts.

The Process:

1. Speak with one of our recruiters

If we have not yet worked with you, we like to have an informal conversation to explain how we work and understand how you would like to.  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 Thursday, 9.00am to 5.30pm, Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm.

2. Complete a Vacancy Registration Form

To start the process, we ask you to complete a vacancy registration form. Feel free to send us additional Job Descriptions, Person /Job Specifications. Once we have received this and confirm with you it is a vacancy we can assist with, we will raise the £900.00 + VAT commitment fee. 

3. On-line Consultation/Discovery Call

When the payment of the commitment fee has been received, we will arrange an online consultation/discovery call to fully understand your needs. This is an important part of our service; we know that for successful placements, we need as much information as possible to find your best-matched candidates and help make your vacancy appealing to the right candidates. 

Consultations typically last between 45 minutes to an hour, but can be longer as needed. Online consultations can usually be arranged outside of typical office hours if required. 

4. Bespoke Vacancy Advert

We will send you a bespoke job advert that has been created to attract candidates you will be interested in. We ask you to check all the details are correct and nothing is missing; if the advert needs to be changed once recruiting has started, this can have a negative impact on the recruitment drive and additional costs may be incurred.  Once we have your approval for the job advert, we will get started on our search and promote your vacancy to the right target audience. If you require candidates to complete an application form, we can send this to candidates to help speed up the process.

5. Attracting Candidates to Your Job

Snap Care is known in the industry as the specialist agency and candidates regularly check our website for new jobs. Your vacancy will feature on our website, and we will place your advert on premium job boards. Your designated recruiter will carry out extensive searches both externally and through Snap Care contacts and networks. Your job advert will be distributed to targeted candidates on our extensive database, built up since 2001 and sent to selected candidates through internal marketing campaigns.

6. Shortlisting

We will call the candidates who have applied for your vacancy to get their verbal confirmation they meet your objective criteria - and check they are still interested in the position. This can be a time-consuming process, but for us, not you! 

7. Sending Candidate Details

Once we have shortlisted, we will send you their CV and a checklist confirming the criteria they meet. At this stage, you take over the recruitment.

8. Contacting Applicants

We encourage you to call all Shortlisted candidates, and as soon as possible to decide if you wish to interview them -  sometimes, on paper someone may not look ideal, but this can change after a conversation. If you wish to interview more than one candidate, we suggest you arrange interviews as close together as possible to avoid delay. Typically, clients do the first interviews online or by phone, and the second interviews in person. We recommend having a trial prior to making a job offer. It is usual to pay individuals for trial days at the advertised hourly rate. Most of our clients find a half or one day trial is sufficient.

9. Offering the Job

You may wish to offer the candidate the job immediately or confirm that your job offer is subject to satisfactory references and/or Right to Work, ID documents, DBS checks etc.  We can send you a draft contract of employment to use if you wish.

10. After Placement Support

A member of the Snap Care team will contact you a couple of weeks after the candidate has started to see how they are settling in. Our involvement then drops back, but we will 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.
