Project Planning Process

The Process

At Certus Graduate we are highly confident in our ability to provide a bespoke, specialist recruitment service that adds real value to your organisation. It is our belief that a true recruitment service is not about filling a vacancy, rather it is identifying the right candidate who, due to both experience and cultural alignment, goes on to significantly contribute to the attainment of your organisations goals.

Whilst we can be incredibly flexible in the way we work with you and your business, regardless of the service you choose, our success is determined by the implementation of the following core service attributes.


We believe that in order to understand the requirements of your company we need to have met with those responsible for the recruitment and management of the specific function into which we are recruiting. This enables us to:

  • Understand your company and its position within its market

  • Understand what you are trying to achieve and where you have been successful

  • Identify where you believe improvements could be made and what needs to be done to maximise opportunity and/or ensure the success of the project

  • Understand the culture of your business and the personal characteristics most indicative of success​

Having gained a comprehensive understanding of your company and the position you are looking to recruit, our specialist consultants will implement our candidate resourcing process, which is unique to Certus and ensures consistency for our clients and speed of response.

Firstly, the details of the vacancy are passed to our Resource Manager, who is responsible for writing all advertising and placing those adverts in the appropriate advertising mediums, ranging from job boards to social media and industry specific forums.

Secondly (and concurrently!), your consultant will create and implement a proactive search and direct approach plan, designed to target passive candidates (those not necessarily looking for a job) who may be suited to your role.


​Having completed the initial shortlisting and telescreening of potential candidates, we commence the formal interview process. Our consultants conduct formal competency and personality based interviews that investigate the candidates’ education and career to date, whilst identifying their individual skill set and capability. We do not simply 'register' candidates.

​Having determined that a candidate meets the minimum requirement, we brief them on your business and the role. Only once the candidate has confirmed their interest and given us their authority do we proceed to introducing them to your business.


​We are highly confident in our ability to provide a sourcing and recruitment service that adds real value to your organisation. This is why we provide a guarantee on all of our permanent recruitment services for all of our clients. The period and level of the guarantee is related to the recruitment service we are providing, the nature of the role we are recruiting for and various other factors which we will discuss and agree with you prior to commencing the recruitment exercise.

Testimonials Default Image
  • ​I had applied for a role via Certus on a Monday and by Tuesday I was already in their offices for a meeting and subsequently being out forward for roles. The graduate manager I had, Anna, was incredibly supportive and made what can be a relatively daunting process very simple and easy! I was also in touch with two recruitment consultants, Megan and Jon, and they had both invested a lot of time into prepping myself for upcoming interviews they set up and by the Friday of the same week, I was already placed in a role. They all provided excellent support and service throughout the whole process and would highly recommend!​

  • Jon, Gabi and Megan were amazing! They listened to what I needed and supported me to find the best role for me.​

    Claire Griffin
  • Wonderful company. Very friendly, professional staff. Remi initially contacted me and was extremely friendly, enthusiastic and encouraging. Jon guided me through every step of the interview process for a role. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and I found a job within two weeks of being contacted. Would definitely recommend for graduates looking for their first job.​

  • Amazing recruitment company that will support you and go the extra mile like no other! The clients that Certus recruit for, are top quality established companies that can honestly change your life. Big shout out to Megan K & Megan S for changing my life forever with the new job of my dreams! I only met the team to discuss roles on Monday and got a job 4 days later! Highly recommend Certus Recruitment Group :)​

    Petra Joli
  • Seaching for a new job is one of the hardest jobs and challenges anyone can go through. Before getting in touch with Certus I was having very little luck and was running low on patience and even confidence. Then the extremely motivating Megan K and Anna Green set me up with 3 different interviews which matched my requirements just 3 days after getting in touch. Megan K was always on hand to prepare me for interviews and even listened to my 20 minute presentation twice! I really appreciated the constant communication and constructive critisism towards my self-development. Thank you for keeping me motivated and always looking forwards. My new role is exactly what I was looking for :)​
