We also offer a candidate alert service to our customers, allowing them to track the availability of exceptional talent in their specialist areas.

We are constantly developing our networks of passive and active candidates, to ensure that we are always in the best position possible, to deliver top quality results in the shortest possible time.

Our permanent recruitment process is designed to deliver fast and effective recruitment solutions to companies looking to secure the very best talent in the market. Unlike traditional recruitment models, CIS works on a ‘fast-track’ basis, designed to optimize success ratios in highly competitive skill areas. Unlike conventional recruitment, CIS works on a project basis, with pre-arranged interview slots and decision timeframes, to ensure that quality candidates can be dealt with in the shortest possible time and avoid losing them to the competition during the process. CIS’s philosophy is this:

“One Requirement – One Ideal Candidate – One Interview – One Decision – One Placement”

Contract to Permanent

CIS offers a hybrid ‘contract to permanent’ service for clients who would like the opportunity to test the consultant on an initial contract basis with a view to recruiting them as company full time employees after an initial contract term. This offers a flexible solution to deal with a variety of situations as follows;

  • may allow you to start a project while you are waiting for new headcount budgets to be granted.
  • ‘try before you buy’ – many jobs are so important that you may wish to see how someone performs in a real live situation over a period of months, before being able to committing to offering a permanent employment.
  • begin with a contract resource to help you demonstrate the benefits of having such a person, in order to present a case for additional headcount, having the option to transfer the contractor to company employee if required.

All candidates presented to our clients in these situations have been fully screened to ensure that they have a genuine intention of transferring to permanent employment should the opportunity materialise.

Professional Services
Workpackages & Statements of Work

CIS also acts as a professional service provider to a number of our customers, offering the opportunity to outsource some of the more specialist work packages or Statements of Work (SoW’s) to CIS in order to simplify the delivery of your project. These work packages are agreed on a case by case basis with our customers, in order to define certain tasks, milestones, deliverables and acceptance criteria required under the service agreement.

Professional Services can be executed on-site or remotely, under the management of your CIS Consultant, instead of your own internal management. CIS will provide regular updates and progress reports throughout the project lifecycle. We agree budgets in advance and only charge, based on successful achievement of the agreed milestones throughout the delivery of the service. In order to maximize synergy across their overall project environment, customers are encouraged to play an active role in the selection of the consultants CIS will use during the delivery of the service
