SOS Recruitment doesn't deal with just anyone. At the risk of sounding "full of ourselves", we're damn good at what we do and so we're very particular to only partner with companies and organisations aligned to our own standards in service and professionalism! We have to be certain that anyone associated with SOS delivers in line with our reputation and expectations!
As you'll be aware - there are literally hundreds of recruitment companies / employment agencies in the marketplace. On the North Shore alone, there are over 40! Unfortunately the problem is that of that 40 - there are only a handful worth the cost of a phone call. The low barrier to entry for this industry has resulted in many agencies opening their doors with a limited understanding of recruitment and even less commitment to delivering genuine service, care and results to their client companies and candidates!
So - what of SOS? Well, we've mystery shopped, researched, investigated, met and competitor mapped all of the North Shore agencies over the past 3 months. So - I hear you say! Well - this has allowed SOS to come up with a very small and distinguished list of "best of the best" agencies. We then negotiated partner/associate arrangements with these select few so that we, as a small boutique, best practice agency, could offer you, our client companies and candidates, a genuine "one-stop-shop" for your staffing and career needs.
This partnership arrangement allows us to spread our wings to assist with almost anything you need and "punch well above our weight"! With our agreements now firmly in place - we have access to far more candidates, far more jobs, far more industries, far more resources and far more regions across New Zealand than any other agency our size. The bottom line is that this allows us to give you the perfect mix; the attention and intimacy only a small agency can offer combined with the scope, spread and resources of a much larger agency!
In addition to the agency partner relationships detailed above, we're also members of key industry and professional organisations. This ensures SOS have access to the best available industry resources and are guided and bound by the standards these bodies demand.
