CONTRACTING

James & Rochelle head up the Actuarial Contracting Team at Goodman Masson. Between us we have been recruiting actuaries for 17 years, giving us an excellent network and relationships we can rely on. We typically pitch for exclusive business and love to demonstrate to new clients and candidates just how efficient and painless contractor hiring can be. Though still relatively new to the temp market, we have placed over 40 contractors in the last 12 months and are proud of the difference we have made to our clients so far.

 

Our approach has been to bring our ‘perm recruitment’ values over to the contracting world, putting the overall client and candidate experience above all else. We are two very honest, friendly, down to earth recruitment consultants who genuinely care, and so hope we have created a unique offering. We don’t send CVs without permission, we don’t inflate day rates, we don’t create false urgency and we offer some of the most competitive rates in the market.

 

Exclusive Relationships

 

Of the 40+ roles we have placed in the last year, almost exactly 50% of them have been on an exclusive basis with our clients. There are lots of benefits to working with an agency exclusively, but most importantly of all, our clients will know that they will be the sole focus of our activity until the role is filled. They receive our undivided attention, and we have the option of bringing in extra support from our wider team if needed. We know that if we do a great job then they are more likely to work with us again in future, so in exchange for giving us an exclusive opportunity we are very happy to negotiate exclusive rates. With our near 100% conversion rate on exclusive roles, extremely competitive rates and our very honest, open approach, you won’t be disappointed!

 

If you are working with us as a candidate, a very similar mindset applies. Whilst we aim to please every single candidate we work with, if you decide to partner with us on an exclusive basis, we will ensure you find out about our most exclusive opportunities before anyone else in the market. We will go the extra mile to keep you informed with every single movement in the job market, and meet you to tell you all about each client we work with and not just their current hiring plans, but where we see opportunities arising in the relevant teams to suit your experience. 28% of our last 40 placements occurred when working with exclusive candidates, and in most cases by taking a proactive approach to making very targeted and relevant introductions to the right hiring manager at the right time. Why be on a list of 15-20 CV's sent to a job which is all around the market, when you could be one of just 2/3 people we are discussing during our meetings with exclusive clients?
