Our Recruitment Process

Candidates are screened Face to Face, Telephonic or Online via Teams or Zoom.

Edge uses the targeted selection method which is a competency-based approach. Candidates are screened against the job profile by making use of a generic pre-screening checklist based on the job specifications and/or profile.  The more concise and precise the job profile is, the more accurate our screening process.

Verification results including qualification, credit checks as regulated by law, criminal checks, citizenship, directorship, and ID validation. All verifications and other checks are done via our partners at MIE.

It is not all about how fast we present a shortlist, it is about presenting a shortlist of candidates who meet all the requirements for the role. We would select suitable talent from a Long list and present our research and final short list to our clients.

Face to Face, Telephonic or Online via Teams or Zoom. During these interviews we carefully assess each candidate against the key criteria that have been specified in the brief.  We pay utmost attention to the work exposure, capability, and fitment to the job, candidate expectations, personality, and cultural fit.

We offer and Facilitate Psychometric Assessments as and when required by our clients by using our own partners who are Accredited Industrial Phycologists.

We attach a great deal of importance to reference checks.  All our references taken on suitable candidates are detailed and focused on the character of the candidate rather than just a professional opinion of their work. Our Reference checks are presented at offer stage.

Once a decision has been taken, we manage the entire offer process to ensure that any chance of a candidate declining the offer is minimized. Once accepted we assist in the Integration and assimilation of the candidate from their previous organisation.
