The flexible, 'Try before you buy' Option
Many organisations today are seeking alternative and innovative solutions to meet their recruitment needs. OCS offers its customers a unique service, Consultancy to Permanent (C2P) Recruitment. The basic premise of the C2P Recruitment service are quality, flexibility and choice.
OCS recruits, as a permanent OCS employee, a candidate specifically for the customer, to their requirement by matching them to the job description. The customer is involved throughout the process and still has the final say at interview.
The customer commits to a minimum level of consultancy for that candidate, usually 6 months, and at the end of that period the customer can:
- recruit the individual as a member of their own permanent staff for no additional recruitment fee
- extend their contract with OCS for the consultant's services, usually for at least a further 3 months
- simply release the Consultant and walk away.
The candidate is given full visibility to all aspects of the process to ensure that he/she understands the implications and are committed to whatever decision the customer makes at the end of the initial 6 months. The customer stipulates from the start, the salary package it wishes to offer to ensure OCS manages the candidates' expectations prior to them being offered employment by the customer. OCS reserves the services of the consultant exclusively for the customer for as long as the customer commits to their services. Once the customer releases the Consultant at the end of a period, OCS is then free to find other projects for the Consultant.
OCS' C2P Recruitment can be offered for any type of candidate, including any whose skills or expertise are not core to OCS and OCS will make best endeavours to secure candidates for the most esoteric requirements.
