Screening and presenting the candidates is where COREcruitment excels, all of our specialised consultants have industry experience and have been trained in conducting competency-based interviews. We also believe in reference checking any candidate submitted to a client prior to interview so as the client’s time is saved and the candidate can be given the most comprehensive interview possible.


Selection or ‘executive search’ is a tool used normally only at senior level within organisations.

COREcruitment can be relied upon for complete discretion and the technique tailored to the needs of the client is completely bespoke.

COREcruitment is accepting of any recruitment assignments, however due to the special relationships that we like to build and maintain with our clients we believe that it would be an abuse of trust to make an active approach to the employees of a client company without their consent.
