London-based Ann Louis Consulting is a specialist in entry-level recruiting. We are one of a handful of recruitment agencies in the UK to focus our attention in assisting job seekers who are fresh out of college or university get into entry-level professional positions. We also help those who are seeking to change career paths and those who are returning for work after a long break by getting their job search in order and putting their careers on track.
With our unmatched expertise and experience in recruitment and the labour market as well as our growing network of regional offices, we are also able to offer our service to companies across the UK. Regardless of the sector they operate in, we help them hire a new wave of talented employees to join their workforce. We take care of everything, from sourcing and screening to orientation and on-boarding.
Put it simply, we make entry-level recruiting more efficient for everyone involved by doing most of the heavy lifting on their behalf. As a result, they are able to secure top-notch employees and job positions and also save time, money, and effort in the process.
Based on the numerous interviews we have had with job seekers, we have found that majority of them find it difficult to secure entry-level professional positions. The reasons for this are varied, including lack of skills and work experience and increasing competition. At the same time, many recent graduates do not have a clear idea where their degrees and skills will fit into the workforce. All these make the job search process a costly and arduous pursuit, particularly for candidates who are new to the labour market.
To solve this challenge, we provide the services candidates need so they can move forward in their job search with ease and eventually find entry-level positions that are a good match for their background and skills. We also deliver a personalised-level of customer service so they feel more valued as they go about their career journey.
Among the services we provide to candidates include skills identification and exploration of career options, search of entry-level professional positions, and sending out applications and arranging interviews. We also provide assistance when it comes to CV and interview preparation to allow candidates to improve their professional profiles and enable them to navigate interviews confidently. Likewise, we have expert consultants in our team who can provide career advice that candidates can use to make informed decisions on their career choice and development.
As with candidates, the recruitment process is equally challenging for employers. It becomes even more difficult when it comes to finding the right fit for entry-level open positions. Planning strategies to attract applicants, going through hundreds of applications to shortlist candidates, arranging and conducting interviews, and taking care of the on-boarding process is all part of the process. There is a lot that goes into the process that can be overwhelming, especially for companies without a dedicated recruitment team.
To help companies in going about entry-level recruiting, we act as a "matchmaker" on their behalf. We maintain a large pool of candidates using effective sourcing tools and strategies and carefully hand-pick those who are a good fit for entry-level positions that need to be filled. We may also seek candidates outside of London through our regional offices if we are unable to find a match within our talent pool.
Take note that the candidates we source and have in our pool are all degree holders, and some of them have undergone training or certifications to upgrade their qualifications. This demonstrates our commitment to provide our clients with top-notch candidates and a recruitment service that is second to none.
Once companies become our clients, we assess their workforce needs and put in our effort to match their open positions with the right candidates. Through our approach, we have done successful placements, many of which resulted to better productivity and retention rates for our clients.
Candidates and employers come to us because we know what works and what does not when it comes to recruitment in today's job market. We owe our expertise to the people who make up our recruitment team, who have a combined 15 years of experience in the industry. We provide solutions that work, and we work hard to deliver on what is expected of us. To put it simply, we are a dedicated team of recruitment and human resource specialists that are willing to go out of their way to make employment happen.
