Our Recruitment Process

The following information is a general guideline to the permanent and temporary service we provide.

Permanent Recruitment

Step One: Take recruitment brief including discussing the specific need and other relevant requirements/company details, visiting client offices where practicable and reviewing a job description to ensure that we understand the skills and personal attributes required in order to ensure the ‘best fit’.
Step Two: File search suitable candidates. This involves sourcing registered candidates from the Event Recruitment database as well as referred candidates from a number of industry sources.
Step Three: Arrange website advertising to announce the role to a wider audience and monitor the need to increase advertising to internet job boards and/or social networking websites as required.
Step Four: Contact suitable candidates to determine their availability, brief them on the available position and confirm their interest.
Step Five: Arrange to meet with candidates to further determine their suitability, discuss the position in more detail and finally confirm their intentions.
Step Six: Introduce a short-list of suitable candidates, providing relevant candidate resumes for review and discussing details of candidates selected.
Step Seven: Act as the intermediary between the client and candidate including organising interviews, discussing and negotiating expectations and advising outcomes including reference checking and the employment offer.
Step Eight: Negotiate candidate acceptance of the employment offer including the candidate’s resignation from their current employment and confirming a start date.
Step Nine: After the candidate starts following up periodically to ensure that the relationship is progressing in a fashion that both parties would expect.


Event Recruitment aims to respond to your need as quickly as is practicable and will attempt to work to your timeframe/deadline.

However, to do as thorough a job as possible, generally initial file searching/advertising, including making contact with suitable candidates will take approximately 2-3 days. Please note that if additional advertising is required the recruitment process may take longer and will be dictated by the frequency and timing of suitable candidate response.

Candidate interviews will take approximately 1-2 further days and short-listed resumes will be sent immediately after this step has been concluded and a short-list determined.

Please note that contact throughout this period will be at least every 24-48 hours with progress updates.

Temporary Recruitment

Step One: Take recruitment brief including discussing the specific need and other relevant assignment/company details.
Step Two: File search suitable candidates. This involves sourcing registered candidates from the Event Recruitment database.
Step Three: Make contact with suitable candidates, determine their availability, brief them on the available position and confirm their interest.
Step Four: Present suitable candidate(s) for a confirmed start or initial review. If required, organise client/candidate interviews, negotiate and discuss expectations and finally confirm assignment start in writing.
Step Five: After a candidate starts follow up is made within four hours on the first day of the assignment (excluding onsite assignments), periodically thereafter and immediately after completion.


Event Recruitment adheres to a 24-hour maximum turnaround period for the provision of suitable temporary candidates and will maintain contact during this period as often as is needed to keep you informed of progress.

“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for organising such wonderful onsite staff for our event. All the temporary staff worked so well and were so professional and I cannot praise them enough. In the past I have had so many issues with external staff which makes my job so much harder, however, over the last three days we really did not have any issues and all of the Gartner staff were truly impressed with every single one of them. I would love to have every single one of them back for our next events.”
