Why Michael Page International is different?


A unique service

Most people would assume that recruitment firms offer much the same service. They couldn't be more wrong. Michael Page International operates differently than most other consultancies, benefiting you in several ways:

Non commission-based incentives

Our consultants don't work on commission, as they do in most other recruitment firms. They are salaried professionals who work in teams for the benefit of both our candidates (job hunters) and client companies. What does this mean for you? Simply that by sharing your information and requirements with our colleagues, you are assured more opportunities will be put forward to you, and you will be confidentially marketed to a wider range of appropriate clients.

Team-based recruiting

To further enhance our team-based structure and coverage in our major disciplines, we break down our recruiting teams to focus on industry sector, salary level and location. This means you benefit from dealing with consultants who have a detailed knowledge of the market place. This is why we call ourselves "specialists" and can offer better information, a more effective infrastructure and more practical assistance than the majority of our competitors.

A focus on relationships

Other recruitment firms also often split the recruitment function, employing interviewers to manage their job seekers and business developers to manage their client companies. At Michael Page we recognise that unless our consultants have in-depth knowledge of both the candidate and the client company, we can't hope to make a suitable match. You benefit from working with a consultant who has a solid, knowledge-based relationship, with both you and the companies you wish to work with.
