Perfect Placement's Charter for Clients

Clients who instruct Perfect Placement UK Ltd. to recruit on their behalf will benefit from the following processes:

Understand Your Requirements

Before we can successfully recruit, we need to fully understand the unique culture of your business, along with your specific requirements on each occasion. Our industry knowledge is unrivalled! One of our specialist consultants will have a brief, but targeted conversation with you to identify your perfect candidate.

Consultative Approach

Our unique, consultative approach will allow you to discuss current market conditions, candidate availability, salary guidelines and agree a strategy for the entire recruitment process, including timescales.

Peace of Mind

We have always been a member of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation. This means that we are bound by their strict code of practice and live up to their highest standards. So you can be 100% certain that you will receive a completely ethical and professional service.

Competitive Fees

Prior to engagement, we will agree fee rates for the assignment and you’ll be issued with our Terms of Business.

The 90-Minute Promise!

We firmly believe that the approach to recruiting the best automotive staff is a timely one. Within an hour and half of receiving instructions, your vacancy will be live on our system and fully advertised via a professionally written, prominent advert on: 1. All Major and specialist online job boards 2. and the highest ranking of all Automotive recruitment consultancy websites... OUR OWN! This will give your vacancy immediate unrivalled exposure!

Unique Database Marketing

Through your recruitment consultant, you will have immediate access to the largest automotive-only recruitment database in the UK. Our considerable investment into the latest technology ensures that we can perform a pin-point, specific search for suitable candidates from an in-house database of over 100,000 potential candidates. Shortlisted candidates will be immediately notified of your vacancy by e-shot, followed-up by direct contact to identify candidates who are firmly interested.

Pre-screened candidates

Once identified, our stringent selection process will ensure that only those candidates who fully meet the criteria of the role will be presented for consideration. We will have assessed their full skill set, employment history and, more relevantly, their overall suitability for your business; as well as their motivation for applying for the position. Only after we are fully satisfied that a candidate is perfectly matched and interested in your role will we submit them for interview.

Formatted CVs

All of our candidates will have a Perfect Placement CV. This standardised approach will enable you to quickly identify the key attributes and draw comparisons between the selections of candidates we present. All CVs will be accompanied by a commentary which will include a brief profile that not only focuses on relevant experience, but also highlights current salary expectations, interview availability and most importantly, confirming their firm interest in being considered for your vacancy.


In order to attract and represent the ‘best of the best’ automotive candidates, it is essential that we keep them informed of the progress of their application. Where possible, we ask for feedback, be it positive or negative, within 24 hours of the CV being submitted. We pass this back to our candidates immediately.

Interview Confirmation

All candidates selected for interview will be advised initially by telephone. We will then agree a mutually convenient time and date which will be confirmed in writing to both parties. We will contact both parties on interview day to reconfirm the arrangements.

Same-day interview feedback

All candidates are contacted immediately after the interview to obtain their crucial feedback. This will be passed on to you diligently enabling you to form your final opinions on who is the most suited candidate for your business. Equally, we pledge to our candidates that they will receive honest and objective feedback promptly, regardless of the outcome. Your assistance with this is vitally important.

Offer of Employment

We will oversee all stages of making an offer of employment, including salary negotiations, ensuring that the process is handled in a professional and timely manner. Our vested interest in both parties being satisfied safeguards the best possible outcome. Should we encounter any concerns, you will be notified immediately and if necessary, advice will be given on the alternative options.

Constant Contact

Upon acceptance of the offer, we will maintain constant contact with the successful candidate, assisting with the resignation from their current position and guiding them through their notice period. Should we encounter any problems whatsoever, you will be notified immediately.

Client satisfaction

In order to maintain our high standards, we ask all clients to complete a short survey. These comments are invaluable to our business and our constant desire to be the best has for many years been fuelled and guided by our clients. Your continued co-operation will be gratefully received.

Placement Aftercare

Your recruitment consultant at Perfect Placement will remain in contact with your new employee for the first three months of their employment to ensure that the transition into your business, and their new post, is smooth and without problems. Should we identify anything that concerns us, you will be notified immediately to avoid unnecessary escalation and we will assist in finding a swift resolution. After this period, we will never approach them.
