Our Services

Whilst superficially recruitment is a straightforward discipline, each role needs to be carefully considered to ensure a successful conclusion. With this in mind, the consultants in Astralis have developed considerable expertise in the following methodologies to maximise an outstanding experience to clients and candidates alike:

Executive Search

Search, no longer the exclusive domain of senior management appointments, is a highly effective recruitment methodology which is increasingly used in sourcing those with rare skill sets and in highly competitive and / or sensitive markets.

With many years of recruitment experience, our consultants have developed a strong network of contacts and, combined with the technical expertise to identify candidates via web-based tools and the availability of specialist researchers, we can provide highly-tailored shortlists as required.

Advertised Selection

In the last few years, it is advertised selection that has been most transformed as a recruitment methodology. Online advertising has largely replaced the use of newspapers and journals, partly due to cost, partly due to speed but particularly due to the reach to potential candidates.

The awareness of online media and jobsites is critical and consultants at Astralis have an in-depth knowledge of this area, both in the anticipated quality of the response and the cost implications. In addition to this, we can also provide our clients with a Microsite service – building a small, self-contained site that will enable candidates to access comprehensive details regarding the advertised opportunity, including links to client websites, where relevant.

In short, Astralis will remove the smoke and mirrors approach often adopted by the recruitment industry and replace it with a service that is fast, open and effective for both clients and candidates alike.

Interim Management

Increasingly effective as an answer to specific recruitment needs, Astralis also has significant capability in the recruitment of HR, change management , communications and recruitment consultancy professionals focusing on middle and senior level appointments. These can either be on a per diem basis or, where appropriate, on a fixed term contract.

In each case we advise clients and candidates as to which is likely to be the most effective and, to candidates who are entering this market for the first time, we can provide advice as to potential legal and tax consequences in order to facilitate their transition into interim management.

Database Search

Whilst retained Search and Advertised Selection are our core offerings for the recruitment of permanent professionals, there are times when it is equally appropriate to consider a different or additional option. Astralis is able to provide a fast, professional recruitment solution through database search. Although varying by sector and function, we are able to access a select group of candidates on our database. We also have the online expertise to get the very best out of the numerous commercial candidate databases.

By utilising a combination of internal and external databases and applying stringent criteria as to the quality of the candidate on behalf of whom we act, we provide a professional service delivered by our highly experienced consultants capable of producing candidates that match our clients’ needs quickly and accurately.
