Kiltearn Partners hires Core-Asset Consulting as sole recruitment partner
Core-Asset Consulting has been appointed as the sole recruitment partner of Kiltearn Partners.
Kiltearn Partners has become the second of Core-Asset’s clients to adopt its Principal Recruitment Partner (PRP) model. In 2014, the recruiter signed a similar agreement with Alliance Trust.
Unique within the Scottish financial sector, the PRP model allows Kiltearn to dispense with the need for a multiple agency, preferred supplier list (PSL) arrangement. The agency claim it also provides the asset manager with the best aspects of contingency sourcing, executive search techniques and temporary recruitment services.
In addition, this partnership model gives Kiltearn Partners access to Core-Asset’s existing recruitment infrastructure, as well as additional specialist support including HR advisory services, candidate testing, employee training and salary benchmarking.
Betsy Williamson, managing director of Core-Asset Consulting, said, “Kiltearn Partners have recognised that dealing with a raft of different recruitment agencies isn’t always the most effective, efficient and cost-effective approach. Traditional multi-agency structures are often characterised by low engagement between client and agency, can be difficult to manage and suffer from high candidate attrition rates.
“Our PRP model creates a much closer relationship with Kiltearn, allowing us to develop a more detailed understanding of their business objectives and better anticipate their future resourcing requirements. By supporting Kiltearn on an exclusive basis, we are able to better match candidates to the roles.
“It’s a win-win-win situation for the client: high expertise, high engagement and an annual management fee structure. This is much more in line with how other professional services firms support their clients.”
