UK's Empathic Recruitment℠ Consultancy

Providing Specialist Outsourced and Internal Recruitment Solutions

What is Empathic Recruitment℠?

Positivity is contagious and so is negativity in a working environment. The path your team goes down is entirely influenced by who you recruit. Empathic Recruitment℠ focuses on finding the right technical skills and somebody with the best personality suited to your business.

We can supply an interactive video recruitment platform alongside paper-based matching in the shortlisting process to deliver a technical, personality and social competency matching mechanism. We also promote psychometric profiling and use artificially intelligent semantic searching software with job boards and social media allowing us to identify the best candidates.
