    Intelligent recruitment

Find talent

The team at Discover have an exceptional track record when it comes to identifying, finding, engaging and placing the most talented individuals in the industry. We have vast experience sourcing candidates both locally and internationally, and matching them to positions all over the world.

The start of any project will involve us taking the time to ensure that we fully understand all of your recruitment needs and requirements. We will then create a bespoke solution to those needs using whichever combination of methods will be most effective and appropriate for you. That combination is likely to involve one or more of the following services:

Contingency search

Our approach to a contingency search goes well beyond a simple search of a database of relevant candidates. We proactively approach both active and passive candidates that we know could be right for the role, and utilise our advanced referral network to do so.

Our referral network has been built up over the many years spent operating within our specialist fields. The candidates we work with know and trust the work that we do and as a result many work only with Discover and are therefore not available via any other sources.

The Discover research team plays a significant role in our delivery to clients. Our researchers spend all day everyday mapping the market and identifying and speaking with top talent across the globe. This helps to ensure we are continually identifying active candidates as well as developing and building on our long-term relationships with passive candidates.

We approach contingency searches in the same way that we approach all of our projects; with a commitment to providing honest, reliable and valuable feedback to client and candidate.

Retained search

A retained search is typically preferable in situations that involve pressing time-scales, a high level of seniority, a scarce skill set or sensitivity around any specific information. Retained searches are given priority status in terms of the level of consulting talent, time and resource assigned to the project. To date, the team at Discover have filled 100% of their retained searches.

Our success in this area is down in part to our advanced Market Watch system. We take the time to build a relationship with those individuals who are not looking to move, but might consider doing so at a point in the future for their “dream job”. We then act as their “eyes and ears” in the market, often over many years while tracking their career, and so when we are presented with a job that matches their individual requirements we are often able to turn a passive candidate into an active one. This allows us to find matches quickly even in the most challenging recruitment situations.

Account management

We can structure an Account Management team around you and your requirements. It is often the best solution for clients looking to fill a number of positions within a particular timeframe, or for clients needing a variety of different disciplines over a prolonged period.

The team at Discover are highly experienced when it comes to overcoming the unique challenges that recruiting within the energy industry presents and are able to manage recruitment projects that encompass a wide range of geographical locations, skill sets, experience levels and remuneration packages.

Using our state of the art CRM tool our clients can log into their unique Discover online portal where they can see the latest candidate submittals for their account or project in real time as it happens.

The Account Management structure can be shaped in a way that best suits each client and can be used as a short term solution for smaller projects or for ongoing multiple searches.

Project work

One of the unique challenges faced by companies within the energy industries is the often fluctuating levels of resource required at certain times and in certain locations. Therefore providing clients with innovative and intelligent solutions to overcome these challenges is a key element of what we do.

As well as working closely with all of our clients to help them predict and plan for any future recruitment requirements, we also have in place a flexible partner system which enables us to immediately scale-up a recruitment operation when required for high volume projects. In such scenarios, all projects continue to be closely managed by one of our experienced senior team to ensure the very highest standards of delivery are maintained.

Contractor searches

Contractors can provide the most appropriate solution in a number of situations, however the right skill sets must be sourced efficiently and the process managed effectively.

The contractor market is fast paced and it is therefore vital that your recruitment partner is fully up to speed. At Discover we track contractor end dates and monitor the ebb and flow of contractual resource around the industry so we can offer rapid turnaround times for contract requirements and a first class level of service for both candidates and clients alike.

Finding the right candidate is not where our support ends. We provide the following services to ensure the smooth maintenance of our contractor portfolio:

  • Additional referencing
  • I.D. and Eligibility checking service
  • Payroll and tax administration in a range of currencies and overseas locations
  • Contract compliance
  • Payment processing
  • Ensuring compliancy with all the latest employment regulations
  • The extent to which Discover manage the arrangement with each contractor can be determined by the client. Discover can maintain full ownership of the candidate, or can release them to the client to be engaged directly. In such cases an advisory service is still provided to ensure the process is as smooth and efficient as possible.

Adhoc contracts

Discover understand that our clients may find themselves needing resource support on a less consistent basis, and that resourcing needs can change depending on a myriad of often unexpected factors. A flexible arrangement with Discover allows our clients to utilise contractors as and when they need them, without having to go through the process of signing a new contract each time. Discover work hard to eliminate the ‘red tape’ often associated with such arrangements to ensure a smooth and easy process for clients re-engaging ad-hoc staff time and time again.
