His ethics and integrity are second to none, and on top of that he is what I describe as an influencer and collaborator and is genuine in his desire in helping people. He is definitely a man worth knowing.

Semmens Executive Recruiting Point Of Difference
They Only Present Quality Candidates
Their focus is not just to match candidate’s skills with job criteria but also to expose their individual effectiveness in the workplace. It is what they call holistic recruitment which not only encompasses skill sets but knowledge, attitude, behavior, relationships with manager, relationships with co-workers, and output/results.
They Specialise In Sourcing Hard to Find Management Candidates
Through their creative outreach and established network of over 400 highly experienced Recruitment Consultants they are able to obtain quality, hard to find candidates.
They Offer a Staff Replacement Guarantee
If the candidate we place does not work out within the first 3 months of placement, they will replace them for no extra charge.
Many of Steve’s clients have been with him for many years, this is indicative of his high level of due diligence and ability in making good choices. It also comes from an understanding of what the employer really needs and what are the most important attributes and level of experience candidates need to have. The result for his clients has been a reduction of staff turnover as most candidates placed stay more than 3 years. This is an important cost factor as employers will know the high cost of training and keeping the right people only to lose them sometime later.
Why Choose Semmens Executive Recruiting
From a business perspective I have spoken to many recruiters, and 98% of them are not the type of people I would work with. Like other industries, recruiting has many people whose focus is primarily on money and not on service. I have had the privilege to work closely with Steve and I can with 100% confidence say he not only deals with the utmost integrity and ethics he really cares about his clients and his candidates. It’s just as important to him to make sure the candidate is looked after as well as the employer. Every candidate who contacts Steve is always responded to; he believes that building good relationships is the key to success for all involved. He goes to a lot of trouble to find the right match and his guarantee of replacing staff in the first 3 months has only had to be taken up once in the past 4 years.
Steve only deals with companies he knows will look after his candidates and he goes above and beyond to provide excellent follow up service, something sadly missing in this industry. Much time and resources are used when employers advertise, sort through the influx of resumes, go through the interviewing stage and then try and choose the right person for the role they have advertised. In so many cases I have heard where this ends in heartache as the candidate seemed ideal only to find out they weren’t. When you compare the costs of choosing the wrong staff to having an expert who does his due diligence and the knowledge of the expertise of those he has interviewed it works out more cost effective to use a professional recruiter of Steve’s caliber.
What Steve Is Looking For
