One of the biggest challenges companies face in the domestic and international market place is finding and attracting the best talent for their organization. Maximizing your Return on Investment from people is critical for Abrivia as we recognize that people can be a significant investment for your business. They can also provide your business with a strategic advantage to your competitor’s. Most of the best companies hire the best talent in the market in order to enable them to be the best.
There are a number of things that make Abrivia unique amongst recruitment firms and that enable us to partner with our clients to support them with their corporate goals:
1. Cultural Compatibility
We take more time to truly understand you, your culture and your vision. Having a thorough understanding of the culture of your business gives you peace of mind that you have a recruitment partner who will not only send you candidates of the very highest calibre but who will also fit in seamlessly with your organization.
The result of this Cultural Compatibility process is that 91% of our successful placements with our clients result in the new employee staying on in that role for a period more than one year. This ensures for our clients continuity of service and also helps maximize their return on investment in people.
As a multi award winning recruitment firm, quality is at the centre of everything that we do. Abrivia has won Best Recruitment Agency and Best Recruitment Consultant as adjudicated independently by the National Recruitment Federation of Ireland.
As a business we focus on delivering an outstanding service to you, our client. Our clients inform us that we have one of the highest interview to placement ratios in the market. To you this means that you only receive a small number of highly screened quality applications putting you in contact with the best people in the market. All our consultants work to the internal metric of having a CV to interview ratio in excess of 75%. In other words we measure our client success by having an expectation that for every four CV’s that we send you, three of these will be interviewed.
We understand and respect that your time is important to you. By investing time with us upfront, we over the long run save our clients a considerable amount of time. Our approach is to make our clients’ lives easier by removing much of the hassle and administrative burden of hiring people. All the team in Abrivia look to guide you through the recruitment process simplifying and streamlining the client experience at each touch point. This means that we take away as much work as possible from you related to the hiring process with the single goal of saving you time. We have a relentless focus on the optimisation of everything we do.
One of the internal metrics that we pride ourselves on is the turnaround time that we set ourselves when provided with a new client engagement. All our team are required to provide our client with 4 quality CV’s within 48 hours of receiving a new role. For you this in turn helps reduce your time to hire and minimises any talent gaps within your business.
We know recruitment. As a recruitment consultancy we have been trusted for over 10 years by global multinationals, indigenous plc’s and growing SME’s to find the best talent in the Irish and international market on their behalf.
We invest a huge amount of time in getting to know your business intimately. This involves meeting with you, understanding your culture and the exact fit of the candidate that you are looking for. We appreciate how important it is to find the best talent in the market on your behalf. Equally we understand how costly it can be for your business if you do not find the right person. One of our focuses is to mitigate against this risk.
The company is divided in teams of specialist recruiters. Over 70% of our recruiters have already worked in the verticals that they recruit for. This means that not only are you working with some of the best recruitment professionals in the market, we also understand your requirements more thoroughly than most other companies.
Our management team of is made up of senior recruitment professionals who individually all have over 10 years recruitment experience. All of them have in excess of 3,000 LinkedIn connections within their specialist recruitment markets.
This means that every recruitment project is given individual attention and that we are uniquely placed to understand our client’s challenges and needs. You can leverage of our teams specialist collective experience in order to source the very best talent for your business.
6. Thought Leadership
We invested in a number of new Thought Leadership initiatives during the year. This is to differentiate Abrivia as a specialist recruitment consultancy with our candidates and clients alike. It is also to raise the companies profile to ensure that from a candidate attraction perspective we engage with the best candidates in the market, the one’s that we wish to attract for our clients.
One of those Though Leadership exercises was our Annual Salary Survey for 2016. We are the only recruitment firm in Ireland to have developed the survey with an Economist Dr. Daragh McGreal. We also agreed to give the Sunday Independent an exclusive press release of our 2016 Salary Survey:

7. Talent Resourcer Model
Abrivia has a specialist resourcer model, so that the senior recruiters can focus on shortlisting the best candidates from our in depth sourcing process for you our clients. Essentially this means that we have aligned a Resourcer to every team of consultants in the business. This has enabled the business to handle more work and to improve the quality of work that we deliver to our clients by sourcing the best talent in the market. These Resourcers are trained to find and assess both active and passive candidates within the market. This ensures that we have the broadest reach possible in terms of candidate identification.
8. Learning & Development
One of the biggest competitive advantages we can have as a company is developing our people faster than our competitors. To do this we place learning & development as one of our core values. Through the systematic investment in internal and external training programmes, knowledge sharing and online learning we make sure that our people are some of the best trained in the industry and are positioned to deliver a high quality service to our clients.
All new consultants in our business are put through a one month intensive “in-house” Abrivia training programme. All our new recruiters complete the NRF Certificate in Recruitment Training. This is an external exam and accreditation awarded by the National Recruitment Federation.
In order to keep up to date with social recruitment trends and best practice for candidate attraction in the industry we put the whole team in Abrivia through the Social Talent Sourcing Ninja Training.
We feel we can only truly serve our clients and candidates by adhering to a policy of total honesty. If we can help you we will, if we can’t we will say so.
We have built incredible relationships with our clients over the years. You feel safe that you are partnering with a company who will represent your brand and values to the highest possible standard.
