- Just wanted to let you know that your recruiter has done a fantastic job in finding me candidates to fill one of our positions. His knowledge and enthusiasm have really made it a pleasure to work with him and both my staff as well as candidates who have come in have commented on his competence and professionalism. I really can’t say enough good things about him.
- The Wentworth Company provides recruiting services but in a more unique way. Unlike "search" firms which charge either a retainer or contingency fee, Wentworth provides professional recruiting services by the hour. You can have them do as much or as little in a process as you like - you only pay the actual time they spend. Because they work by the hour, they have developed a number of very impressive tools to maximize productivity and to demonstrate effectiveness of time spent. The "typical" search (if you have Wentworth handle most/all aspects including reference checks) will come in at around 10% of base, although as they become more familiar with the organization and learn the culture and types of successful candidates this can go down. Of course, the amount of time they spend can also go up if job specs are not clearly defined, if hiring managers are non-responsive, etc.
I met John Wentworth when I was with Hyundai 20 years ago and have used John and his company regularly ever since. His organization has never failed to deliver the goods for me, and can assist in hiring everything from A/P Clerks to CFO's, highly specialized and/or unique positions, industry specific positions, and I've even used them to help fill positions in Canada and Mexico.
While I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in the area of recruiting, I defer to John's expertise - he really is an expert and a wonderful ally. His recruiters are well trained and actually RECRUIT - they do not keep file drawers full of resumes hoping you will hire a piece of paper they have on file. Virtually everyone I have ever hired through them was working when Wentworth brought them to me!
- I wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the quality of the candidates that your consultant has been able to surface. Her communication, coordination and persistence (when necessary) has been great. I am feeling optimistic and looking forward to bringing the team together.
- I must say that [the person we hired with Wentworth’s help] has worked out beautifully. She has brought calm and healing to the organization’s Board, and we had 600 new members last year. In addition we have a new website and she has increased the member benefits. I am thrilled with the outcome of our search, and we could not have done it without you!
- Looks like another winner. Boy, do you guys deliver!
