Blog Post – Sight and Sound
It is vitally important to us, at Wills Consultants, that when we are recruiting for a client, we source the right people to fit not just the job criteria but the business culture too.
So, it is wholly satisfying to hear praise from our client Sight and Sound Technology – the UK’s leading supplier of technology for the blind – who has commended our understanding and attention to detail in sourcing people with not just the right skills but the right moral compass.
Sight and Sound Technology is the UK and Ireland’s leading supplier and Master Distributor of hardware and software to the blind, visually impaired and those with learning and reading difficulties. It supplies the tools to enable those who are fully or partially blind to live life to the maximum.
We have been working with its CEO Glenn Tookey for the past five years, starting by recruiting a marketing and sales manager for the Northamptonshire office and going on to recruit countless employees for Glenn’s management team.
He has been amazed at the calibre of the candidates.
“The Wills Consultants team are great judges of character,” said Glenn. “Every single person they present to me I could employ.
“The reason I continue to work with Wills Consultants is because that shortlist they provide is always good. Out of the three or four candidates, you could recruit any of them. It’s just about choosing the best one.
“They take the leg work and risk out of the process, and they understand my business. They find me people that fit the personality and skills type I need.”
Glenn said our family run recruitment agency find “good people, not just good employees” and that our efforts to invest time in understanding our clients pay impressive dividends.
Glenn said: “Simon took the time to come and see what I do and understand my business. He then passed all that information on to his team.
“We are a disability technology provider, and all our customers will have some form of disability, whether that is physical or behavioural. People working for us must be on our wavelength and be the right type of person to get on with our client base. That person needs empathy and personality.
“A recruiter for us needs to be able to judge each candidate, understand their backgrounds, map their skills and experience and the knowledge they’ve gained in their careers to make sure they fit in our business.
“Wills Consultants present me with good people, not just good employees and that’s what sets them apart from others.”
As part of our service, Wills Consultants follow up with our clients and our new starters for a number of months after the recruitment process has been completed, to ensure that both sides are satisfied with the arrangement.
“It’s not a process that ends when they’ve taken their fees from me,” said Glenn. “It carries on. They follow up regularly after the people have come on board, so we know people are happy and settled. It’s good for us as we know from a trusted source if we’re getting it right.
“I would recommend Wills Consultants wholeheartedly for their attention to detail and success factor. They take the risk out of my recruitment process, I can trust them, they don’t waste my time and the person I get stays in the business – what more can you ask for?”
