At Stroud Resourcing, we’re obsessed with finding the people that can solve our client’s problems, whether its finding the dream employee or securing the dream job. We love to help – this is what Stroud Resourcing is all about.

We have had over 10 years’ success in matching talented professionals to some of the most eminent Health & Social Care employers – it’s our job to understand these industries and to use our skills in headhunting to consistently unearth people who are not sitting on CV databases or LinkedIn.

Our commitment to our process and our practice has earned us a great reputation but our strength lies in our dedication to learning and development and ultimately the people we employ. We encourage you to value the work you do, be the best you possibly can be and create a great experience for all involved – having fun is also high on our agenda.

The best jobs are the ones that make you want to get up in the morning...it all starts here.

Our employees liken university to learning to drive a car – there is a lot of theory, a little bit of practice, you pass a test, but you don’t really learn ‘how to drive’ until you get behind the seat of your own car. They attribute our graduate scheme to the theory, the test and most importantly the doing…driving your career forward, and if there is a crash along the way, it doesn’t matter because the continuous training and support that we offer will provide you with the skills and resilience to get back behind the wheel and do it again, successfully.

What recruitment is

Recruitment is the process companies use to source and hire new employees. Most organisations have dedicated internal recruitment teams who will typically try to reach a pool of candidates through job postings on their company website, on external recruitment sites, known as job boards, or by searching on job boards.

Job applicants who respond to a vacancy are then screened to determine if their skills and experience match the job description. Shortlisted candidates are invited to attend interviews or other methods of assessment, such as online tests, role plays and group discussions. Employers may then check the background of prospective employees, as well as checking references prior to making a job offer.

As simple as this process may sound, recruiting new employees can prove to be extremely challenging. 73% of candidates sitting on CV databases including LinkedIn are passive job seekers. They are open to hearing about new career opportunities, but they are not actively seeking jobs - the result of this is out of date CVs and incorrect contact details. So if you want to speak to these individual, you must be highly tenacious. This is where we add value.

We train our Graduates in the primary skill of headhunting. This sourcing technique targets candidates working for rivals brands who are not actively looking to make a move - they are not sitting on a CV database and they will not apply to an advert no matter how enticing the content.

What you will do

Using sales and marketing techniques you will be responsible for opening new accounts and developing, managing and maintaining existing client accounts. It takes time to develop repeat business, in your early years this role is very sales focused but our high performance, high reward culture means you are well remunerated.

You will work closely with employers to find the best available candidates. You will be responsible for attracting applicants and matching them to permanent positions. You will work with employers to build relationships and gain a better understanding of their recruitment needs and requirements.

You will draft advertising copy, search on CV databases, name gather and headhunt. You will screen candidates, selling the role to prospective applicants, interview them and match them to the vacancy. You will provide advice to both clients and candidates on issues such as market conditions and salary levels.

This is a career not a job – it is a demanding, complex role. It requires a combination of skills:

  • Consultative selling - you need to understand the problem the customer is trying to solve, recommend a solution and then provide the solution.

  • Technical ability - sourcing candidates requires a technical ability, people can’t be sold in the same way cars are. Cars don’t have a say in who buys them, candidates need to be skilfully matched to jobs and both parties need to actively agree to enter a work contract.

Dedicated to a learning culture

“Hard work and passion never go unnoticed at Stroud Resourcing and its one of things I love most about this company. The energy and ambition within the business is phenomenal – there is a real commitment to learn. The Graduate Training Scheme is unparalleled and will set a new benchmark for excellence within the recruitment industry – I am incredibly proud to be part of this! We have a very supportive and knowledgeable team, who drive a culture that encourages collaboration, recognition and a desire to deliver excellence.”

Recruiting for attitude, training for skill

We work with a lot of graduates and understand that for many of them, they went to University without a firm career plan in mind. What we hear a lot though is that students who have come to study in York want to stay living in York – and we don’t blame them!

We regularly run graduate recruitment events which provide an opportunity for students to see whether a career with Stroud Resourcing is right for them.

At Stroud we recruit for attitude and train for skill. We don’t filter applications based on course choice or results – we recruit people who we know will be a good fit into our successful and go-getting team and who will go over and above to deliver the best possible service to our clients.

Our bespoke 12-week induction programme covers all aspects of how to recruit and is broken down into bite size chunks - it incorporates an introduction to our industry, our business and our customers. We train you on all the technical aspects of the role – finding great candidates for our clients! Our sales training is exceptional covering everything from negotiating, influencing and objection handling. Following on from the induction you will participate in a lifelong sales & coaching programme that takes you from being a trainee to a Director.

At Stroud, we offer the opportunity to fast-track career progression and accelerate earnings - graduates can anticipate on target earnings of £25,000 in year 1, £35,000 in year 2, and £45,000 in year 3 – and this uncapped earning scale continues!
