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 situational discovery examines the unique situation surrounding a particular role at that particular time. Whilst the Job Description will provide a useful overview of duties, tasks, experience and qualifications required, the situational discovery will be critical to understand the personality traits, motivations and aspirations the individual will need to be successful

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.

Our partnership opportunity management service

Ford & Stanley’s partnership opportunity management service acts as an extension to your business, enhancing your employer brand in order to target the most relevant candidates within the market.
In addition to the traditional recruitment methods, our consultants will work with you to:
  • Develop a bespoke written Employee Value Proposition

Enhancing your employer brand

Ford & Stanley have extensive experience in reviewing and increasing the value of our clients' brand, both internally and externally. Our consultants will help you to create an Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to project a high-desirable and engaging image of your organisation, that reinforces why people should join and indeed stay with the business.

We perform an in-depth analysis, using qualitative and quantitative techniques to obtain feedback which directly assists in the development of your brand. Ultimately this will help to distinguish you from your competitors and reinforce your strengths as a business.
