Our success is achieved through our attention to detail, clear and honest representation, recognising that each client, candidate and vacancy has its own unique requirements.
We believe that successful recruitment stems from gaining an accurate understanding of these requirements and working in partnership with both client and candidate.
For us, people enable business success and they are an organisation's greatest asset. Sourcing talented people is at our core, including our name which is derived from the Latin 'Ingenium' meaning 'talent'.
As a member of REC, we adhere to the REC Code of Practice which has been developed to ensure clients and candidates receive the highest principles of ethics, equity, integrity, professional conduct and fair practice.
Vicki Douglas of Genium Selection volunteers recruitment experience to help young people on The Princeís Trust Team Programme which is run by Bridgwater College in Weston-Super-Mare.
The Princeís Trust Team Programme is a 12-week personal development which helps unemployed 16-25-year-olds gain the skills and confidence they need to move into work or training. The course includes a residential week, a community project and a two-week work placement as well as help with CV writing and interview techniques.
As members of the Team progress towards job hunting, Vicki helps them to improve their interview skills through individual mock interviews as well as boosting their confidence and self-belief. They show great willingness to learn, along with enthusiasm and motivation to find new employment. Vicki finds volunteering both a rewarding and inspiring experience and looks forward to volunteering recruitment experience on further programmes.
Genium was selected by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to provide Jobsearch Support Services for Newly Unemployed Professionals / Executives who were referred by Jobcentre Plus.
As part of the Government's response to the economic downturn, DWP used the expertise of the private recruitment industry to deliver jobsearch advice and help to professionals and /or executives. This contract ran from April 2009 to March 2011, during which time Genium delivered this service to over 400 customers. Many of these customers successfully secured new employment by applying Geniumís expertise to their search for new employment, which included contemporary CV writing and interview preparation.
