SERVICES

We provide specialist IT recruitment services across Permanent, contingency, managed services and campaign-based recruitment, hardware solutions and translations within the languages of English, French and Italian. When dealing with a new client we will firstly appoint a management consultant to analyze their requirement before advising on which approach to adopt. This we be flexible and adapt over time in line with the client’s recruitment requirements, combining ongoing contingency methods with campaign recruitment when necessary.

Database

Our EMEA database holds the details of over 150,000 IT professionals and is governed by our data protection policy. This ensures all candidates are aware that we hold their details and are happy for us to do so. Our database allows for extremely focused searching and also operates a sophisticated Management Information System to enable accurate reporting as and when required.

Advertising

Advertising is one of our main methods of attracting candidates and our advertising strategy is devised accordingly. We utilize a mixture of online and traditional paper-based medium and also carry out various brand awareness initiatives.

We are constantly re-assessing strategy in line with current market trends.

We also conduct advertising campaigns on behalf of clients. This involves taking control of the whole campaign from initial consultations on media mix and placement, through copy writing and design to handling of response and placement. Our advertising presence allows us to pass huge cost reductions onto our clients.

Headhunting and Referrals #

Headhunting and Referrals is our other main method of attracting candidates. This allows us a competitive edge over other agencies, allowing our client’s access to candidates that are not available through other agencies and advertising. We offer a referrals scheme to candidates in order to develop a database of what we regard the top 10% of candidates in their chosen field.

Account Management

We have an independent account management function that focuses purely on the development of both new and existing client relationships. Each Account Manager takes responsibility for individual clients and focuses on ensuring delivery to that account whilst maintaining a high quality of service.

Service Level Agreements

Metrorec has service level agreements in place with all key clients and see them as being central to maintaining a successful relationship. We offer a full consultative service whereby in-depth sessions are held with the client when terms and issues such as best practice are discussed resulting in a fully bespoke agreement for each individual client.

Metrorec undertake a volume requirement as a full end-to-end service, through all stages of the recruitment process through to subsequent onsite management and interviewing if required.

Sole / Managed Agency

Metrorec have both exclusive, managed agency and master vendor agreements in place with many of our clients. We can completely manage the entire recruitment process on your behalf, via a dedicated recruiter either onsite or remotely. This would include the sourcing of candidates, through all pre-screening and technical testing to 1st interview stage if required.

Executive Search

At Metrorec we believe that Executive Search should only be adopted for specific positions.

It is very much a consultative service whereby consultations are held with the client at every stage of the process to ensure maximum success.

The Value of Testimonials via @MetrorecWW

metrorec

  • Nothing can be more effective for any business than featuring the comments of a business partner or a client satisfied with the delivery of their services.
  • Nothing communicates and describes better the quality of your offered solutions.
  • The words of clients and candidates who have experienced your service delivery, the comments of a business partner or the feedback of a satisfied client are certainly the most valuable promotion/appreciation of your business efforts.

PR & Marketing tools and plans are and have to be definitely included in any company’s strategic management group, but a Testimonial is something impressive, attractive and reliable. It is a FACT.

So our advice… Get testimonials from the people who have successfully used your services … THEY ARE Priceless and FREE!

We are proud to list here below some of the testimonials received by both clients and candidates.

“During all the process, Metrorec recruiters have been very professionnal in his approach. The contact was permanent with him and I can say that he has been a great partner in the negotiation with the company to reach my aims. Finally I just can say that I strongly recommend him for your queries or job requests.”

Top qualities: Great Results, On Time, High Integrity

Hiring Manager Global Software Vendor

“A CV is a candidate’s greatest selling tool but the effectiveness of that tool is negated if its not in the hands of a great recruiter. I’ve rarely come across recruiters who research their prospects before a pitch. My experience tells me that Metrorec Recruiters spend time understanding the needs of both the candidate and the client prior to making their pitch. Highly competent and very dependable. When deciding to leave the construction industry after almost 13 years Metrorec supported that transition. They are definitely a rare find in the recruitment industry. I strongly recommend them to anybody looking either for a career opportunity or a good candidate.”

Satisfied Candidate 

“I am very happy with the placement and Metrorec’s liason in getting me the role.
The job has worked out very well and they are in the process of relocating me AND my family to the U.S for a couple of years. In taking the role I also received a substantial pay rise, so its been great for me.

Thanks Metrorec!!!”

Happy Candidate and Family

“We often have a very difficult requirement as a client, such as the need to find excellent people in hard to source EMEA locations such as Lisbon, Prague and Dubai. Because of this, many recruiters tend not to make our jobs a high priority and I can confirm that Metrorec did not only find great people for our business in hard to source locations, they literally ran campaigns for us as a priority until the jobs were all filled.”

Very happy Head of Marketing – European Branch Software Vendor 

“The last search you did for us, you’ve provided me with a good list of qualified candidates for the job, and it resulted in us hiring the sales rep for the finance territory. (Who is doing great by the way)

I won’t hesitate in using Metrorec for any searches we want to do in the future.”

Satisfied Corporate Customer 

Dear Metrorec, we would like to thank you for all your efforts. We send you this endorsement without request but as a testament to your achievements in filling our jobs in the UK, France, Italy and Germany and we know we can count on you to go the extra mile in the future which is very important as we have a concerted recruitment drive in both Q2 and Q3.”
