information SERVICE DETAILS

LINKnet is excited to introduce the Diverse Recruitment Consultancy (DRC) to job seekers and employers based in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
DRC is the first and only recruitment consultancy in Scotland that specialises in minority ethnic job seekers, while also serving people from all communities.

Our mission is to help job seekers secure permanent work and employers recruit quality staff from diverse backgrounds. This is very much related to LINKnet's vision of maximising representation of minority ethnic people in the workplace, and to help in the establishment of an equitable society.

DRC is positively different because:

- We specialise in supporting minority ethnic job seekers; who are disadvantaged due to many social, political and economic reasons
- We provide our candidates with an intensive training programme on employability skills, communication skills, basic office skills, cultural diversity, confidentiality and related topics
- Our candidates can also benefit from LINKnet's long standing and successful one to one mentoring programme in order to be job ready
- Any income generated through DRC will be channelled back to LINKnet to sustain its free mentoring service

Our Diverse Recruitment Consultancy (DRC) mission is to make it easier for job seekers to secure permanent and rewarding employment.

As a specialty we focus on supporting minority ethnic people in Scotland, while also serving people from all communities.

To our candidates...

We know that working in recruitment is effectively playing with your lives, your dreams and your aspirations. For everyone we feel is suitable for a role with one of clients you will be offered a range of services.

We offer CV advice and writing, interview practice and most importantly aftercare once you have started. We do not sell people to people.

Registering with us will get you a more personal service than commercial staffing agencies as we are smaller and more personalised.

You will always receive honest and immediate feedback following each stage of your interview process.

You will have someone personally working for you.

How does DRC work?

Much like other recruitment consultancies, DRC is committed to providing job seekers with quality service and support to help secure permanent employment. This includes meeting to understand the background, requirements and expectations of job seekers, and to provide honest, helpful and friendly service.

We are a little different though in that we carefully select candidates according to their suitability for the types of jobs and clients that DRC handles. This enables us to provide a personalised and targeted service and increase the likelihood of success. However this correspondingly means we are very limited in the number of candidates we can support.

Why choose DRC?

Most importantly, DRC is positively different to other recruitment companies in a number of ways:

- We are familiar with the challenges experienced by minority ethnic people seeking jobs
- When working with employers we promote the benefits of employing people from diverse ethnic backgrounds
- We provide our candidates with an intensive training programme on employability skills, communication skills, basic office skills, cultural diversity, confidentiality and related topics

Our candidates can also benefit from LINKnet's long standing and successful one to one mentoring programme in order to be job ready
We are a charity organisation and any income generated from employers through DRC will be channelled back to LINKnet to sustain its free mentoring service. This also means our fees are very competitive and reasonable.

What next?
