Knowing You, Understanding Your Business
How do you like to shop?
Are you an impulsive 'on-the-spot' buyer? A mood buyer who likes
to browse? Or are you a highly selective, pragmatic buyer who
always knows exactly what they're looking for? What about things
you need? Do you make purchases based on 'needs' or 'wants'….or is
there sometimes very little difference between the two? Do you like
to have assistance when making a purchase (in somewhere like John
Lewis for example) or would you rather shop 'your way' and be left
to your own devices?
Being a little more specific, what if we were talking about a
considerable, significant purchase and an investment in your life
or in your future e.g. buying a house, a car or an engagement ring?
What about if we were talking about your career or a new job
opportunity - would this be an impulse decision or would you take a
more careful, considered approach and look for consultation and
advice before committing yourself?
Here at Impact we are a boutique media/ creative recruitment
agency with a specialist Finance division. We are passionate about
the work we do and we value both our candidates and clients' needs.
For this reason we take an equally consultative, considered and
highly selective approach when it comes to understanding the
requirements and long-term career aspirations of our candidates as
we do when understanding the expectations and needs of our
As consultants at Impact we understand that as a candidate your
professional future is in our hands and on the client side of
things we recognise that we are helping you develop your business'
greatest asset - people! We value and respect the contribution we
make to the future success of both individuals and businesses. As
for the question of whether we put the client or the candidate
first? The answer isboth or neither! We focus on achieving outcomes
that are mutually beneficial for both parties as we believe this is
the key to long term success rather than quick wins.
A key step in our recruitment process centres around
face-to-face interaction and the meetings we set up across a
typical week. At Impact it is our policy - and we make it a
priority - to arrange client meetings (at the clients offices) for
any new job brief in order to get a true feel for the company, set
up, culture and identity of the business. It also helps to
understand more the people who currently work there. On the same
note we meet and 'pre-screen' all candidates on behalf of our
clients to get a clear understanding of your needs and expectations
so that we are able consult and advise accordingly on suitable,
relevant roles. Ultimately we help you to evaluate which media
agencies you would be best suited to. For example McCann, Wieden
& Kennedy, JWT, Grey, Cheil or Burberry?
My point is, it is our business to get to know you and to
understand your business.
