Why Use Personnel Avenue?

At Personnel Avenue you will have greater assurance, as we will work with you to find the right candidates that will complement your company and team.

There is also the perception that direct referrals and hiring may save money. This does not necessarily ring true. Comprehensive recruitment is time consuming and may not result in finding the person you are looking for.

We manage the process of sourcing the candidates, interviewing, referencing and verifications. We will never simply download and send curriculum vitas (cvs), but will only send those that best fit according to your specifications and results of interviews.

We always talk to, interview and obtain permission from the candidate prior to sending cvs.

    How does the Process work?

    From initial contact with our office, you will feel part of a team that is truly interested in finding the right match for your company.

    For permanent and contract staff:

    • Communicating with you to fully understand your staff requirements, either at your offices or over the phone – whatever suits you best.
    • Sourcing according to your specifications
    • Interviewing – all candidates are interviewed prior to being referred
    • Referring only the most suitable candidates
    • Conducting independent reference checks
    • On request - Criminal, Academic and other relevant verifications on selected candidates

    Our agreement and pricing includes a tiered guarantee over the first 90 days of the permanently placed candidate's employment. This is to give you comfort in our service in the unlikely event that the candidate is not suitable for your team nor meet your expectations.

    Upon a candidate being placed, we continue to work in a partnership with you as our client, to ensure that you are satisfied with the candidate.

    We can only improve on our service to you through honest feedback. This will enable us to deliver the most efficient and effective assistance.
