As a trusted recruitment partner to companies in the Engineering, Manufacturing, Supply Chain and IT industries across the UK, we're proud of our reputation and our history.

We're also proud to say that two-thirds of the companies who chose to partner with us have come from referrals. We believe this is testament to that fact that building effective partnerships really works, and this approach is at the heart of everything we do.

At Seismic, you won't get a recruitment team that doesn't listen to and understand your needs. We won't assume to understand the nuances of the role and the requirements that make recruiting for each company different. Instead, you'll get a recruitment partner which is set on delivering an effective process to the highest standards.

Delivering to these key principles is why many companies use us as their trusted recruitment partner time and time again.

​Permanent Recruitment Services

Seismic provides a full end to end service for the recruitment of candidates into permanent roles. We conduct comprehensive searches to identify potential candidates, utilising various channels including our existing candidate database, online job portals, industry networks, and targeted advertising, to attract suitable talent.

We work closely with clients to understand their hiring needs and thoroughly analyse the job roles and responsibilities and that combined with our expertise allows us to understand the unique requirements of each position and provide valuable insights to both clients and candidates throughout the recruitment process. Once we identify potential candidates, we prepare comprehensive candidate profiles highlighting their qualifications, experience, and suitability for the role. This enables the client to make informed decisions.

When the client identifies the ideal candidate from the shortlist, we assist in negotiating job offers, including compensation packages, benefits, and other employment terms. We facilitate the hiring process, ensuring smooth communication and coordination until the candidate is successfully placed.

Seismic will maintain a relationship with both the client and the candidate after placement. We conduct follow-ups with the client to ensure satisfaction and address any concerns; whilst rebate terms exist in our terms of business they are rarely invoked.

Contract/Interim Recruitment

Long at the core of our client offer, businesses often have the need for temporary resource to work on short term or very specialist projects. Seismic can source and engage experienced, well qualified contractors or interim/agency staff for you if required for your projects. Engaging contractors for the first time can prompt a lot of questions about the process, but we're more than happy to provide full advice on such topics as IR35 or the Agency Worker Regulations, so that both Seismic and the client can remain compliant with any legal obligations.

Exclusive Retained Recruitment Services

Many organisations come to the conclusion that the traditional contingent agency model doesn't really work for them; engaging multiple agencies to work on the same requirement can very quickly dilute the service you are given, leading to a race to the bottom that can be highly detrimental to the brand of client and agency. Having to field endless agressive sales calls from new agencies can be time consuming and detrimental to the hiring process overall, as fees and terms become unpredictable and unmanageable.

The clear alternative is to engage Seismic on an exclusive retained basis - this guarantees quality of service for the client and reduces risk, ensuring that costs are clearly managed and most importantly, are fair to all parties. If you're interested in our retained service, please get in touch.

The Seismic approach to our client partnerships is hands on. We believe that we:

Are differentiated by the amount of time our team devotes to delivery

Bring no surprises through continuous dialogue with you to ensure that all issues are reported and dealt with as they arise

Are truly committed to finding you the perfect match that's right for your business

Provide quality and believe that we have the most rigorous quality control methodology of any recruitment firm

Are fair in both our approach and the reasonable fees we charge
