A differentiated approach to recruitment
At Ford & Stanley we work with some of the market leading employers across the rail and engineering sectors, both in the UK and internationally.
Through implementation of our unique discovery process, our recruitment team have a proven 98% success rate in securing candidate placements. Ford & Stanley's discovery follows a three stage process:
The purpose of our client discovery is to evaluate the current market, establish the ease of recruiting, clarify the client’s expectations of the role and obtain a wider understanding of the business need for recruitment.
Our opportunity discovery takes a closer look at the job description to identify the opportunity inherent within the role. Through obtaining a greater understanding the business case to hire, hard and soft skills required and the key deliverables of the role, our consultants are able to identify what type of person would be motivated by such an opportunity.
The candidate discovery ensures the right talent is identified for the right role. Our consultants not only look at the job description, but seek to match surrounding factors such as skills, experience and aspirations, as well as compatible motivations in line with the role requirements.

Enhancing your employer brand
Ford & Stanley have extensive experience in reviewing and increasing the value of our clients' brand, both internally and externally.
