As we embark on the first month of this new year, we all have resolutions and plans. For many, this involves assessing where we are at with our careers and where we would like to go. We want to know our options and how we can utilise our existent skills but also allow ourselves those vital opportunities to develop our skillset and to learn even more. With that in mind, it is a good time to re-cap on Inspired Selection; on who we are, how we work and what we can provide for both clients and candidates in 2014.
We are a niche publishing recruitment agency specialising in sourcing the best talent in this industry and placing those candidates in the right roles. We work to brief and pride ourselves on understanding our clients and how best to add to the teams within their companies. For us, communication is key. We meet all our registered candidates face-to-face, going through their CV’s in detail and making sure we know what it is they are looking for.
Client meetings are just as important to us; there is no substitute for visiting the company offices and really getting to know the culture of each environment. Inspired Selection Consultants come from publishing backgrounds and, in many case, we have once been sitting on teams within publishing companies, thus giving us that understanding of the publishing processes and that passion for the industry.
With offices in London, Oxford and Madrid, we work across all sectors within the industry – education, academic, professional, STM and Trade. Each Consultant specialises in one or two particular sectors and with those being their focus, they work on registering the best possible candidates for a variety of different roles within those sectors and also on building on our already impressive client base, forging new relationships and expanding on our knowledge of the types of roles that are out there.
We work with our clients and candidates from the very beginning to the very end of the recruitment process, from examining the job spec in detail at the initial stages to negotiating for both sides when it comes to offer. We check in with both parties after the placement has been made to ensure that everything is running smoothly and we nurture those relationships, hoping to be able to help out again in the future.
We are publishing people working to recruit the best talent into an industry that we love. We very much look forward to meeting and working with more of you in 2014.
We would love to meet you at events so do feel free to come up and introduce yourselves! If you’re interested in opportunities within publishing do keep in touch and register for our Vacancy Update Service as well as keeping up to date with us on Twitter
