The Benefits Of On-Line Recruiting - 03/2000

Balanced People Has Never Looked Back

On-line recruiting works very well at the highest levels in financial recruitment, says Alan McBride of specialist accountancy recruitment consultancy Balanced People. Using specialist websites Gaapweb, Balanced People has placed three financial directors on six figure packages in the last two months.

Clients have been impressed with the speed and calibre of response we've provided. In two cases, we've made successful introductions after the clients retained consultancy had failed to deliver for them. Moreover as we've not had to incur expensive search techniques or FT style advertising, we've been willing to work on a contingency basis, even at this level.

This has given us a real competitive advantage, says McBride, who is an ex FD himself. I've been surprised to receive applications from plc finance directors and impressed that not only has the web levelled the playing field between big and small consultancies, it's giving us a real competitive advantage. If you seek a high calibre FD at short notice you've nothing to lose by trying the web based service of Balanced People, a company revolutionising financial recruitment at the highest levels.
