A new recruitment methodology

We’ve dedicated significant time, resources and investment to mapping the payroll, HR and Marketing industries from top to bottom.  We have undertaken the research, initiated the due diligence, and made the investment required to locate top talent for you.  Our recruitment methodology is designed to save you three critical elements: time, energy and money.

Based on CIPD research, the average cost of a poor hiring decision can amount to three times the annual salary offered to a candidate that does not work out.  This research formed the basis of our “7-Point Recruitment System”.  The first recruitment system of its kind, it has proven to attract the top 15% of talent proactively.  We recommend you try it for yourself.

About the Founder, Nick Day

For over 15 years, I worked as a recruitment director within Payroll, HR and marketing. I am an MA graduate, who has developed incredibly vast networks of specialist professionals during this time.  As founder of JGA Recruitment, my core wish is to deliver a client and candidate experience that surpasses any competitor.

My top 15% of talent belief:

Typically, a top 15% candidate will be a ‘passive candidate’ rather than an ‘active candidate’ found on a job board.  Consequently, I train our teams to locate skilled ‘passive candidates’ not found via traditional recruitment methods for our clients.  Our process is, therefore, focused on inbound engagement.  In my experience, engaged, committed candidates are far more intrinsically committed than those only moving jobs for better pay.  The net result is improved candidate retention for clients and higher job satisfaction for candidates. This belief is at the core of everything we do.

Keynote speaker and Podcast Presenter:

I consider myself a leading authority on all aspects of payroll, HR and marketing recruitment.  I write regular articles that tackle the latest industry news and innovations.  I am also the founder of Payrolljobsboard.com and am the presenter of ‘The Payroll Podcast”.  I am also a regular recruitment speaker at industry events.  Recent events have included those hosted by the CIPP (Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals), Learn Centre and Global Payroll Association.

Fantastic feedback and reviews:

Clients and candidates routinely review JGA Recruitment, and I am proud of our independent Google 5-star reviews.  We love searching and selecting the best payroll, HR and marketing candidates for our clients.  We are also extremely passionate about exceeding expectations.  Why – because we want to deliver the best talent available.  We want your fantastic recruitment experience to become synonymous with our brand, JGA Recruitment.

Why we love Einstein:

Einstein famously said that “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”.  We want you to discover a new approach to recruitment, so you too can experience a different result.  We want you to try JGA Recruitment.
