Outsourced Recruitment Department 

We specialise in recruitment for SMEs and owner managed businesses across the Midlands and East Anglia who are looking to grow but don't have the time or expertise to recruit effectively. We can take away the pain of recruitment by being your recruitment department for your recruitment projects. 
When you use a recruitment consultant you can end up paying high rates of commission. At Emerald Starfish our prices will typically save you over half of your current recruitment costs. Our costs start at less than £2,500. 
We do this by only charging you for the time that we work on your recruitment projects, and we like to work in close partnership with our clients. We screen your candidates on your behalf and support you through each stage of the recruitment process. We manage all the administration, such as interview invites, rejections and feedback. We will design your interview frameworks and help you with your interviews as needed.  
You will get much more from Emerald Starfish and we promise it will cost you a lot less! 
We work with our clients to offer either the full outsourced recruitment service of end to end recruitment or we support our clients with any of the parts as required.

Advertising & Sourcing Candidates 

We can advise you on the best place to advertise for candidates and manage the adverts for you so that they are SEO optimised and attracting exactly the right candidates for you. We have negotiated competitive rates with the top job boards to ensure that advertising is cost effective, whilst spreading the net as wide as possible. We will sift all candidates to your criteria to ensure that your time is only taken up with the best candidates. We will also reject all unsuitable applicants on your behalf and give feedback to all candidates that have been in the interview process. 

Screening Candidates 

As a busy recruiting manager you want to only be spending your time with the best candidates that closely match your role profile and person specification. We will screen all your applications on your behalf, conducting in-depth telephone interviews in line with requirements of the role. We can add psychometric testing in at this stage too if you require it. We will also administer the whole process for you as well so that candidates are all given feedback on their applications and no one is left unsure of what is happening. 

Interview Support 

As you are experts in running your business we can offer you our recruitment expertise. We can make sure that your interview process reflects the role that you are recruiting for by designing your interview framework to ensure that candidates appropriate skills and experiences are tested. We can create bespoke competency questions that create a fair recruitment process for candidates that are easy for your recruiting managers to use. Alternatively, why not let us run your interviews for you? We can ask the questions alongside you to ensure that you get an unbiased view of the candidates alongside our expertise to ensure that you can recognise not only the right candidate but where your future potential lies. We can help you to increase the suitability of successful candidates and also reduce your staff turnover. 

Psychometric Testing 

We offer PeopleClues psychometric tests as part of your recruitment process. These are the next generation of psychometric tests to ensure that your candidates' personality profile fits the role that you are recruiting for. The modular tests are quick for your candidates to complete via the on-line portal and we will read the results for you. In addition to this the tests create questions for you to use as part of the interview process based on the candidate's results and give feedback to the candidates too. 
You can assess candidates for their ability to process information, their personality traits in relation to the job that you are recruiting for as well as their attitude in work and their engagement with their current role and company. 


We work closely with organisations to identify and map their talent to ensure that future recruitment plans are filling skills and talent gaps rather than replicating what is already there. We work to lower your risk in terms of succession planning and to ensure that future recruitment campaigns will recruit the best candidates to help your organisational planning.
