The Paragon Team are experienced, networked and trusted, with the credibility, impact and track record necessary to operate at pace and to add value through careful application of current knowledge, reach and technology. We deliver honest, accurate advice and guidance through out the process, tailored to each employer and individual we represent, enhanced with a great user experience.
Paragon’s Consultants, Support Team and Directors each benefit from recruitment expertise and connections developed through successful careers within the industries to which they consult. This combination of recruiter skill and industry knowledge enables the provision of sound advice, dedicated service and access to the Island’s leading portfolio of opportunities.
Our focus on developing long term business relationships with our candidates ensures that our partnered clients have access to a premium network of talent; our robust interview, selection, referencing and verification processes increase the impact and relevance of Paragon candidates submitted for any given position – temporary or permanent, junior to executive.
Each consultant at Paragon is extensively networked within the industry that they support and is therefore capable of tapping in to an expansive network of contacts on behalf of their clients. Our consultants are supported by research, infrastructure and technology ensuring that our knowledge of suitable candidates within the marketplace is always current.
Where key appointments, quantitative recruitment or sensitivities dictate, Paragon are perfectly placed to project manage from inception to completion; from a retained search through to recruitment open days and assessment centres, with full process, advertising and recruitment outsourcing management, review and information management.
This customised approach ensures consistent delivery of a controlled message with significant cost savings, with the reassurance that the target candidate market has been fully surveyed, approached and assessed professionally, in a timely manner.
Paragon’s approaches to attracting talent are varied and proven. We pride ourselves on our resourcefulness, market advantage, reach and approach, together with our dedication to achieve the desired result within the designated time frame.
Our sourcing strategies constantly evolve to ensure that we are equipped to respond to job search practices and maximise new opportunities, whilst complimenting the direct resourcing strategies necessary in today’s marketplace.
From the internet to social media, our own websites and jobs board, traditional media, partner agencies, events, education, community and professional organisational sponsorship and support, we consistently invest both time and money to drive the benefit to our clients and candidates.
Our market monopolies provide the reach, networks and infrastructure to recruit at pace, maximising the specialisms of the market in which we operate.
Paragon’s team of recruitment consultants utilise a defined behavioral and competency based interview approach, which has been designed to gain meaningful information and insight about each individual candidate, their preferences, strengths and areas for development.
We question and clarify individual skills, existing knowledge base, behavioral attributes, leadership and management capability and application, which we can then apply to the individual needs of each partnered client and appropriate vacancy to ensure the right match.
We develop a comprehensive understanding of a candidate’s career and life objectives as well as building a multi-layered appreciation of their existing skills, knowledge and general attributes from complex questioning within a relaxed and professional interview framework.
Our recruitment consultants are highly experienced in conducting technical and competency based interviews and take time to develop a more in-depth understanding about a candidate’s technical ability, in addition to ability, or potential ability, to lead, inspire and influence others.
We also seek to understand an individual’s potential and their development needs. However where we believe we add greatest value is through our assessment of an individual’s emotional intelligence and their potential ‘fit’ with the cultures and values of our key clients.
Paragon also has the facility to provide, administer and feedback on a range of skills-based testing either as part of our recruitment process or independently for clients.
