Recruitment Services

Whether your recruitment requirements are for permanent, temporary or contract vacancies, our recruitment specialists are on-hand to assist, with a keen focus on building long-term relationships with our clients. Our dedicated consultants go above and beyond the job spec every time, and with over 150+ years combined industry experience, we gather a detailed understanding of your business and culture.


Permanent Placements

At CMD Recruitment, we carefully match a Candidate’s skills and qualities for each role. We only put forward Candidates for consideration or interview if we believe they meet the requirements for the placement.  We have fine-tuned our process to ensure every candidate has the right credentials, understands what’s expected of them and is a good fit for the culture of a company. Our Consultants take great care in getting to know each Candidate, by interviewing them about their career histories, abilities and aspirations.

Our permanent placement services consist of three options:

For this service, a CMD Recruitment Consultant has the position exclusively. This option allows the consultant to exercise time in delivering the highest quality of candidates and qualification process; and as a result, the clients get a better-quality hire at the end of the process.

CMD work as an extension of your team, delivering communication and updates throughout the recruitment process to create a transparent and trusted partnership. Exclusive recruitment also prevents the same candidate from being called by numerous recruiters for the same position, enhancing the employer brand. Your Recruitment Consultant represents your company. Using an exclusive service allows you to control that image.

For exclusive recruitment, you only pay upon the success of a placement. Most of our Recruitment Consultants are also willing to discount their fee on an exclusive service.


For this service, the Client works with multiple Recruitment Agencies. Working with several Recruitment Agencies gives a quick result and the ability to tap into a wider pool of candidates. Unlike exclusive recruitment, where a client will receive a fine-tuned, tailored shortlist from one agency, contingent recruitment still requires the client to sift CV’s inhouse as they are likely to receive higher quantity and duplicated candidates from multiple agencies.

CMD Recruitment always strives to provide a thorough, professional and trusted service ensuring we act as a professional ambassador to your brand.

For contingent recruitment, you only pay upon the success of a placement.

Retained recruitment is done on a pay as you go service. It is broken into three parts. First, a percentage of the expected fee upfront. Second, a percentage paid when the shortlist is produced and the third final balance upon successful placement. Should the client cancel the recruitment, the first two instalments are non-refundable.

Retained recruitment gives your CMD Recruitment Consultant time to thoroughly headhunt passive candidates alongside searching active databases. We create a strong working relationship with our clients to ensure we source the highest-calibre candidates to match your requirements and brand – working together to produce the outcome required.
