WHY CHOOSE US?

Offering a professional and unique perspective of the recruitment industry we serve, our objectives are numerous. They include providing a service that is fair, ethical and always legal. We aim to promote, encourage and exercise good recruitment practice in order to deliver a high standard of service to both our clients and each of the candidates that we represent. Communication and two-way feedback is provided to all those involved along with making ourselves available for any issues that may occur. Assistance with contractual and legal questions will be offered, together with help in facilitating problems that may arise after a placement has been made. Most importantly we follow and promote both government and industry codes of practice.

Finally, seeing little point in submerging our clients in a mountain of resumes, we endeavour to present a small, carefully selected, group of candidates who are, in our opinion, perfectly aligned to the needs of each role.

 
 

CANDIDATES MATCHED TO YOUR STYLE

“Horses for Courses!” Not only must we find Household Staff that can do their jobs beautifully, but we understand the importance of finding candidates with the right polish, personality and character to perfectly complement the unique style of your home and lifestyle.

 
 

OUR PROCESS

Before we present you with candidate’s resumes, Green Baize Door’s consultants need to understand your expectations, define the job description and candidate’ profile, and agree the salary and package that will be offered. Only then can we review potential candidate’s skill-sets, personality, character and style of presentation, to ensure they are perfectly aligned to your requirements.

OUR TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT

We will send you our terms of engagement to review, and we ask that you read them carefully and revert back to us if you have any questions or queries. If you would like to engage our services, before we start the search for a new employee, you will need to sign the terms of engagement and send them back to us by email or post.

DISCUSSING YOUR NEEDS

Preparation is vital, so either by telephone, email or in a face-to-face meeting, we will take the time to define your requirements, understand the responsibilities of each role, and agree the terms of employment offered. When we have a clear understanding of the position and the benefits provided we can then start the search.

LOCATING YOUR PERFECT CANDIDATE

When we have all the elements in place we can start the employee search, using our extensive database, address book and established network of contacts, or in some instances, this may involve launching an advertisement campaign. In all instances, candidates will be vetted, references checked and DBS checks processed where necessary.

AN HONEST APPROACH

Over the years we have refined our terms of engagement, to provide a contract that we believe fairly serves all three parties: The Client, The Employee and The Agent. Unlike most of our competitors we do not hide our terms of engagement, instead, they are here for you to review.
