  Permanent
recruitment?

Brewster Pratap Recruitment Group understand that recruiting staff can be a complex and time consuming process. We are experts at building an unrivalled attraction strategy to source the best and most suitable permanent candidates and our processes have been structured to ensure compatibility with the roles that our clients are endeavouring to fill.

In order to provide the exceptional level of service that our clients expect, we always meet them regarding their needs, usually within one week, to fully understand their business objectives, specific requirements and the culture of their organisation. We also perform a comprehensive assessment of all candidates prior to being introduced to clients, and yes, we do meet ALL candidates personally. We also perform psychometric testing on all short-listed candidates to share with our clients and work in partnership with both parties to develop the desired outcome for each.

Our consultants have a blend of knowledge and experience and as such have a network of talent at their fingertips, saving you precious time, effort and facilitating the best outcome for your work-force.

  Temporary & contract
recruitment?

For many organisations, spikes in activity mean that temporary and contract recruitment is a vital staffing strategy and as such they need flexible staff that can hit the ground running and have the skills to perform.

Brewster Pratap Recruitment Group can provide temps and interim staff at all levels and we work diligently to maintain our networks and to find the best and most flexible talent to fill the gap at those critical times when your business needs them. We ensure that all temps and contractors are screened to ensure up-to-date compliance, which in turn minimises your administration time and gives you more flexibility within your organisation. Using temporary staff can also reduce an organisations overhead if they do not have a payroll department. Temp recruitment can also be a useful tool for testing out a prospective employee on a temporary level and can also help mitigate risk should any unforeseen employee issues arise.

Companies that are looking to expand quickly or restructure and need expert senior experience can also benefit from the high quality transferable skills and entrepreneurial outlook that an Interim Manager can provide as well as many seasonal businesses that may only need that expertise for a few months of the year.

At Brewster Pratap, we not only pride ourselves on our network of temporary and contract staff, but also our understanding of the catalysts and motivations for hiring staff and we are perfectly placed to mobilise the work-force you need.

  Assessment
and psychometrics?

Psychometric testing is, in a nut shell, the measurement of the mind. It is becoming an increasingly popular tool to assist in the recruitment process and to help potential employers get a better overall evaluation of a prospective candidate, their strengths, abilities and personality, key factors in determining their ‘fit’ within an organisation.

The test can be used for all levels of candidate, from graduate or junior level, up to senior and director level in measuring their existing ability and future potential.

Psychometric testing can determine a variety of attributes including intelligence, character and behavioural traits, critical reasoning, working style and motivation. By understanding your staff motivation, you’ll be able to harness this for the benefit of the organisation and unlock that individual’s potential.

Brewster Pratap conduct assessment and psychometric testing on our premises in a safe and professional assessment centre environment and use simulation exercises as a method of reproducing real life workplace situations in order to evaluate a candidates ability and competencies.

Psychometric testing is also a means of screening a large pool of candidates and eliminating a large amount, leaving a smaller number best suited for the position and significantly reducing time and workload.
