The benefit of smart recruiting.

Feb 4, 2021

One only needs to take a cursory scroll through LinkedIn to see the number of people who have been impacted by the on going pandemic with their green semi-circle “Open to work” profile badges. Smart, capable people who are eager to add value to businesses in Ireland. For employers, this a rare opportunity to recruit high calibre candidates. Yet, as we know recruiting takes time, especially when you receive a flurry of applications for one position. Identifying the ideal candidate can be a laborious task that you may try to squeeze in amidst your other commitments, not giving it the full attention it requires. Hiring someone is an investment, and as such, should be given the appropriate consideration. Using an outsourced recruiting partner, like FMI, removes the headache and ensures the optimal end result.

FMI has exceptional knowledge and experience in the Irish market. As an employer of over 900 staff we have worked with many talented people, built strong lasting relationships and effective processes for recruiting the ideal candidates. Through our network and our team’s resourcefulness we are able to quickly identify and find the right candidate for the right role.

We have recruited for a broad spectrum of clients across FMCG and Technology sectors, including Monster Energy, Virgin Media and CocaCola, amongst others. We manage all elements of the recruitment process, which includes creating a competency framework for the job spec, strategic advertising and the vetting and interviewing of potential candidates. We conduct phone interviews, first round interviews, 2nd round interviews, and reference checks, prior to the job offer. We also offer more than just a recruitment service. Our clients can also avail of all our back-office services which includes payroll, HR and bookkeeping services.

One such example of this is the work we have done with Virgin Media, who initially tasked us with recruiting Retail Sales Trainers. From this initial success, FMI have subsequently become a trusted partner of Virgin Media, who also availed of our HR, Payroll and Training services. FMI have since recruited over 20+ employees across various departments within Virgin Media, which include Data Reporting Analyst, B2B Inside Sales, Channel Executives and SME Technical Support roles to name a few.

Covering permanent positions, temporary positions, as well as executive search, the FMI recruitment team are skilled and understand the nuances of the industry and sector. Which makes us highly effective at matching the job requirements to the candidate’s skill set and personality.

But don’t just take our word for it.

“ Just a brief note of thanks now that we have secured both candidates for the roles placed. We are delighted with both candidates and appreciate the lengths gone to on securing both. Thanks again for your efforts in helping us continue our journey.”
