With your permission we will access your software to check reference and update the details. In instances where this data is unclear, we will go to the source to verify information.
3. How many applications will your resourcer shortlist on an average day?
Short-listing is a time consuming activity and the number of shortlists cannot be guaranteed as it completely depends on the quality of candidates who’ve applied for the job. However, this will be fully discussed with you prior to commencing the activity and a target number will be agreed.

We educate our resourcers as per the laws and legislations and keep them updated about the new rules and regulations in the UK recruitment market.

This completely depends on the length and technical amendments on the CV. However, we will have weekly reviews and agree a benchmark for the activity.

At the point of implementation, we will obtain your permission to directly approach your candidates to request information to enable us to provide you with complete CVs.
7. What if there are multiple urgent CVs at one point in time?
We always analyse the volume of activity for every client before we get into an agreement, hence, depending on the number of urgent CVs you’d need to be formatted at one time, we would discuss and deploy personnel accordingly; i.e. after evaluating the volume and discussing your priority with you.
1. How will you regenerate our database?
We will discuss your business development strategy with you and profile the type of candidate you require. We will then work through your database and assess, contact and reactivate the candidates where appropriate and thus turn it into a valuable asset for your recruiters to match vacancies to.
2. Will the recruiters have an understanding of the industry/sector we operate in?
We always try to hire recruiters who have experience in the relevant industry sector as it makes it easier for them to understand the industry specific terms and for our clients to train them. However, we utilize our own Training Academy where any specialist knowledge is missing. When we are putting a client’s team together, we invite the client to conduct the final interviews and select recruiters for their team so they will have an input to ensure they have the type of people they want working for them. We also provide ongoing training.
3. How do you maintain the confidentiality of our candidate database?
We are based in Skipton, North Yorkshire and governed by UK policies and procedures. We sign a data protection agreement with our clients before entering into any agreement. We use bank-level security to keep your sensitive data safe across all the activities.
4. Can QX help with ‘skill coding’ the applicants?
Yes, QX will skill code the candidates as per your requirement and the specific applicant tracking system (ATS) that you use. We train our resourcers to understand the CVs and key skills on their profile to input relevant skills on your ATS; this means your recruiters can conduct an improved search and match process to identify suitable candidates for their vacancies.
5. Will your resourcers understand the vacancies as well as our recruiters do?
You are the master of your industry and our deliverables will depend to some degree on the knowledge shared by your recruiters to our resourcers. However, we ensure our resourcers receive detailed training in your industry.

7. What sources will you use to search for candidates?
We will use a wide range of sources dependent upon your requirements, availability of candidates and location of candidates to ensure we provide the required volume and quality of candidates required.
