Global solutions | Local Talent | Trusted Partner

We want to be your partner, not your supplier.

At Frontera Search we take the time to understand your precise requirements during our briefing so we can build a detailed action plan to deliver the solution you need.

We use a thorough selection process.

Our expert selection process is thorough and effective, at every stage of the brief:

  • Intuitive research
  • Consideration of an appropriate approach towards both your business and the candidate
  • Clear profiling with key compatibility indicators
  • Convenient and fluid interviewing
  • Astute final referencing and short-listing

At Frontera Search we take time to get to know the culture of your business.

We ensure that those candidates who go on to work for you are suitable across all the values of your brand and will fit comfortably into your business environment, as well as into the professional role.

We guarantee:

  • An impressive shortlist with a detailed commentary on each of the candidates
  • Candidates who have been actively sold your company proposition in advance of the interview
  • Support for each step of the process

Our written briefs are succinct and drawn from your instructions with added input from our up-to-date knowledge of current market conditions. We also guarantee complete discretion; your business details and recruitment needs are kept confidential, particularly from competitors.

Our on-going contact with you will keep you up-to-date on how the selection process is going. We also follow up post employment to discuss on-going satisfaction for both you and the candidate. Hand your recruitment needs to us with confidence. Get in touch with us here to start the process of hiring your new role

Client FAQ’s

Why use a recruitment agency?

As an employer, the cost and time burden involved with direct recruitment can be onerous, taking key staff away from their day to day work and placing a strain on operational delivery. Associated recruitment costs, such as advertising, design, media placement and logistics can also be highly expensive, and the process requires in-depth expertise and knowledge to ensure successful placement – specialist skill-sets which in-house provision may be ill placed to provide.

By employing a specialist recruitment agency such as Frontera Search, you gain peace of mind, and access to specialist skill-sets and recruitment channels. At Frontera Search we provide a ‘right first time’ service that is of the highest quality, fairly priced, and which provides you with the talent your business needs.

As your recruitment agency partner, Frontera Search will handle every aspect of the process, according to your specific brief. This will generally start with role definition and assessment, progress through to targeted advertising and candidate engagement, move into screening, assessment and interview, and finally result in a high-quality hire that is in line with your business objectives, and compliant with recruitment law.

We work extremely closely with each of our business clients to establish their detailed brief and to understand their business. This ensures that we are sourcing the right staff for the brand, and increases retention of subsequent appointees.

What is a temporary worker?

Many organisations use flexible and temporary workers in today’s competitive business environment. The temporary worker, or ‘temp’, is provided by a recruitment agency for a particular assignment. This assignment will generally take place over a defined period of time.

As the recruitment agency, Frontera Search will cover all relevant costs, including employer tax contributions and holiday pay, and handle the administration associated with managing temporary staff.

As the client company, you will simply pay an agreed hourly rate that is defined before the assignment commences. This flexible employment arrangement is highly attractive to businesses that need to ramp up staffing requirements quickly and easily – for example, for rapid contract deliveries or expansions, or to rapidly gain access to a particular skill-set, without needing to increase fixed staffing levels.

What is a permanent employee?

A permanent employee is employed by your business, and sourced via Frontera Search as the recruitment agency. Under this arrangement, the business will incur all of the new employee’s costs once in post – including employer tax contributions, holiday and sickness pay and salary arrangements.

A single one-off fee will also be payable to Frontera Search for managing the sourcing process from start to finish. This is generally set as a percentage of the new employee’s first year annual salary, and the fee structure will be agreed beforehand.

Some businesses will keep a recruiter on retainer for high volume and repeat or specialist recruitment requirements, and benefit from a different fee structure which recognises the higher level of repeat business, and often attracts a range of complementary services within the service level agreement. At Frontera Search, we work with a number of key clients in such a way. Please contact us to discuss your particular needs.

Why use Frontera Search to find the right permanent staff?

Every business dreads the task of sourcing and employing the best permanent staff! The process can be onerous and highly regulated, and occurs in an extremely competitive market where employers are all vying for the best talent! This combination of factors can result in a real drain on company resources, particularly where an in-house recruitment function doesn’t exist, or isn’t scaled to manage capacity requirements for high volume or specialist hires.

At Frontera Search, we take the hassle out of the process and manage it end to end for you, using expert staff and advanced recruitment methods. This is particularly important where clients are seeking staff in specialist fields, or at short notice. We use comprehensive networks, cutting edge engagement techniques, best in class selection processes and significant brand leverage within our markets to find you the right client for the job.

We work closely with you to establish your brief and understand your requirements. Generally this will involve managing the entire process from initial advertisement across a range of targeted media, through to screening, and then drawing up a list of potential candidates. You decide who you wish to interview and we manage the process from there, supporting directly with interviews as necessary and then managing the processes required to successfully appoint the new hire into their role.

We also take on a valuable bridging role during the appointment phase, where candidates may be keen to negotiate on employment terms. In such instances, we work to represent you – the employer – to ensure the best possible outcome for your business.

Why use Frontera Search to find the right contract staff?

If your business is facing an increase in workloads, a drop in permanent staffing, or a ramp-up in rapid turnaround projects, then temporary staff can provide a valuable source of the skills and delivery resource that you require.

Often, such occasions arise rapidly, and you need quick solutions to the problem. Rather than face the time-consuming process of permanent recruitment, Frontera Search provides rapid access to the staff you need, without the administrative burden. Call us to discuss your needs and we will relieve the pressure for as long as you require, providing high-quality, screened and carefully selected candidates that meet your needs.

Remember, we also handle all of the employment costs associated with this arrangement, so that you only pay one pre-agreed fee for the temporary staff you need. By handling National Insurance, PAYE contributions and holiday pay, we can save you valuable time, as well as the cost of administration.

What is a ‘temp to perm’ arrangement?

When we talk about ‘temp to perm’, we describe a situation whereby a temporary agency worker begins within your business on a temporary assignment, and then is taken on as a permanent member of staff. This is a common arrangement, and can provide a range of benefits to the hiring business. If the temporary worker is progressed onto a permanent contract before a certain timescale, a fee will be incurred under our service arrangement with you.

How much does it cost to hire a temporary staff member through Frontera Search?

Every temporary worker is charged to your business according to a pre-agreed, single hourly rate, plus VAT. This rate is agreed between you as the client and Frontera Search as the agency provider before the assignment begins. Remember that through that fee we take care of all the necessary staff costs for that temporary staff member – including PAYE, National Insurance, holiday pay and so forth, and we manage the administration too. This arrangement is highly flexible for you, and offers rapid and easy access to the staff that you need.
