CLIENTS

Will The Lucas Group be able to find the person we are looking for?

With a large, powerful database and extensive networks regionally and globally, The Lucas Group can access skilled professionals to meet your business needs.

The Lucas Group works on a retained basis, we employ a rigorous process and apply a great deal more due diligence into the definition and execution of the mandate than the contingency model.

Under a retained model, the recruiting process is highly structured and well defined.  The retained search model targets the best available talent, not only active job seekers, who do not necessarily possess the necessary skill set.

The perceived disadvantage of the retained search is that the Client has to pay, regardless of the outcome. However, this obligation to pay, by the client, we repay with an obligation to perform.  When you partner with The Lucas Group we make a commitment to find the person you are looking for.

What happens if the person doesn’t work out?

The Lucas Group stand by our rigorous and standardised recruitment process. We guarantee each candidate and will replace them at no further cost to your business.

Will The Lucas Group write the job advert and position description?

The Lucas Group can develop documents that will detail the role and sell the opportunity after gaining an understanding and insight into your company’s culture, goals and growth plans.

What is involved with reference checks from The Lucas Group?

Relevant background checking of a candidate’s employment history will include a summarised written report from someone the candidate has reported directly to and can validate their skills and experience. The duties and responsibilities of the role and the company culture will be explained to the referee and used to determine their suitability for the role. We will also explore areas of what is the best work environment for the candidate to work in, strength and weaknesses and their management/leadership style when applicable.

Is personality and psychometric assessment possible?

We believe this is an effective tool in any recruitment process. We can incorporate job suitability testing into your project and you will be able to develop the assessment to suit your business. Talk to us how we can source the best-suited candidate for your team.

What kind of support will be offered to me as a client?

We will be actively involved and engaged with you throughout the recruitment process. We will provide advice and guidance when needed to ensure there is a good “fit” between company and candidate. The Lucas Group will design a Position Description and Person Profile for the role to help identify the key requirements the candidates will need to possess to be successful in and suitable for the role. We can be actively involved on site on the client’s premises to conduct or facilitate the interviews and selection process for the final stage of interviews. The Lucas Group will assist with remuneration negotiation and finalising the employment contract if required. We will also be actively involved with the review process throughout the probationary period.

Yes. The Lucas Group works with a broad range of companies right across the primary production and agribusiness supply chain. Just because you were not successful for a particular role doesn’t mean we won’t have an opportunity for you later. We will let you know if you’re not successful for a role and will ask more questions so we can keep in touch with opportunities that suit your experience and interests, and preferences.
