Since our establishment in 2001, IRIS networx has been supporting organisations nationwide to source top talent and fill vacancies with a fully managed recruitment service that offers all the benefits of a premium agency but without the associated costs.  Are you seeking a cost-effective alternative to traditional agencies?

As the jobs market becomes increasingly more saturated all organisations are looking to ramp up their attraction strategies and seek a competitive advantage. 

Unsurprisingly our recruitment services team are currently managing more vacancies on behalf of clients throughout the UK than ever before. 

But what makes networx recruitment different? 

Here are 5 top reasons why our recruitment services are so popular. 

  • Tailored advertising campaigns for every role 

Our team will consult with you directly to discuss the key requirements and create a tailored campaign that combines leading job boards, aggregators and social media to achieve maximum exposure and reach candidates with the necessary skills. Whether you are recruiting for a CEO, a Financial Accountant or a Store Assistant we will use our knowledge and experience to pinpoint the most effective platforms to promote your opportunities. 

We don’t just post and pray for a response! 

  • Premium advertising 

With so many vacancies available to choose from, positioning really does count at the moment. We will craft an SEO-optimised advert and use premium advertising options or PPC sponsorship to ensure that our roles not only appear in as many search results as possible but also benefit from higher rankings to help generate more applications. 

  • Direct links to your roles 

Ensuring that you have a quick and seamless application process is critical if you wish to secure the very best talent. Our process has been streamlined and perfected over the years to ensure that the information you require to make informed selection decisions is obtained in one simple process. 

Using direct links is proven to increase applications by up to 30%. 

  • Experienced recruitment professionals

Unlike some recruitment service providers, our team is experienced recruiters who hold the knowledge and experience not only how to advertise your roles but proactively search for candidates with the skills you require, promote your opportunities and encourage suitable candidates to apply. We combine traditional head-hunting techniques with access to leading candidate databases to maximise the quality of applications our clients receive. 

  • No percentage placement fees or commission

Our flat fee approach, not only allows our clients to recruit for any level of role for the same cost but as there are no commissions at stake, you can also be sure that our team is focussed on ensuring that we fill your vacancies with the best possible candidate or candidate's, who are genuinely interested in working for your organisation and not simply using it as stop-gap until the next opportunity comes along.

The ability to buy campaign credits in packages also delivers significant cost savings as an alternative to traditional agencies and placement fees. In fact over the last 12 months ( Oct 2020 - Oct 2021) we have helped our clients save over £6 million in placement fees.
