Why should my business employ a 9-2-3 candidate?
When you agree to work with 9-2-3, as a business you can be confident of recruiting high-quality, experienced professionals who have a passion to demonstrate that flexible working can be beneficial for both themselves and crucially, their employer.
We speak with all our candidates before agreeing to represent them, so we can be sure we’re offering you new staff of the highest calibre.
Our candidates are all capable, reliable and enthusiastic. They are intelligent and conscientious, and many have professional qualifications. We’re proud to represent them, and committed to helping link up motivated professionals, with brilliant, innovative and flexible businesses.
At 9-2-3, we have confidence in the way we work, and are proud to do things a little differently to other recruiters. Here's what we can offer you:
NO hard sell approach: no spray and pray of CV's, no pushing of candidates into roles that just won't suit you or them.
Part-time roles attract a smaller fee, but these are in fact the roles we specialise in.
Each candidate is vetted individually. We spend time reviewing CVs and screening applicants, before handpicking only the very best candidates to send on to you for consideration.
Our organically-grown database means we have access to hard to reach talent. Many of our candidates aren’t registered elsewhere, and some aren’t active on LinkedIn.
Our candidates trust us because we listen to them, and only put them forward for roles they want.
All our roles are advertised on our social media platforms (up to 50k reach per week) and our website (with 35k unique visitors in the last year).
If we need to widen our search net to find the right talent (eg external jobs boards), WE absorb the cost!
You only ever have to pay us if we find you your ideal candidate – so why not give us a go? Helen is always up for a chat, so do get in touch!
Why go flexi?
Not every job will require a 37-hour week. Managers and HR departments can therefore start to think creatively when developing roles and recruiting staff – opening up a whole new pool of talent, and encouraging a shift towards productivity over presenteeism.
Flexible working: the research
Studies show that employees who have access to flexibility are more productive, have fewer sick days, greater staff retention and crucially are more engaged in the workplace. Research by Deloitte indicates these employees are a third more committed to the company; while a study by Vodafone points to an increase in profits for companies that embrace flexible working.
Research in recent years demonstrates a positive relationship between flexible working and productivity. One study (using data from an IBM survey) found that individuals who felt they had workplace flexibility were able to work longer hours – up to an additional day each week.
The Institute of Leadership & Management have written an article called “Flexible Working: Goodbye Nine to Five”. It quotes a study by Stanford University which showed a marked rise in the productivity of staff working from home - they had a 13% performance increase, were off sick less and answered more calls per minute than their office based colleagues. The article goes on to say that 82% of managers think flexible working is beneficial to their business – with improvements in productivity, commitment and retention of staff.
