Our Services

At The Orkney Employment Consultancy we are passionate about supporting Orkney based businesses of all sizes seeking to recruit the best possible staff.  We'll help you find employees who are committed to living and working in Orkney and contributing to the success of your business and the wider community.  

Whether you’re a small business or a major employer, The Orkney Employment Consultancy offers a range of tailored and fully confidential services to suit all recruitment budgets:


  • Vacancy Service
  • Recruitment Advice & Support
  • Flat-Fee Recruitment 
  • Full Recruitment Package


Vacancy Service 

Our Vacancy Service begins with us helping you create an advertising strategy that ensures you attract the best candidates for your budget.  Your advert will then be uploaded to The Orkney Employment Consultancy website and social media channels, pushed out to our network of job boards and emailed to candidates registered for job alerts.  We'll also take care of distributing your advert to any additional outlets you need from local newspapers to national and sector specific job boards.  We can also provide boosted social media options. 

How well your advert performs is important to us.  We'll closely monitor it and provide you with key statistics to ensure your strategy is working effectively.  

Alternatively, if you want to take care of your own advertising you can use our self-advertise option.  Advertising with The Orkney Employment Consultancy couldn’t be simpler and only takes a few minutes. We offer a set-fee 28-day advertising package.  Register as a recruiter, purchase a 28-day posting, upload your logo, vacancy details, set your closing date and, finally, decide how you want to receive your applications.  We’ll take care of the rest, by working it across our FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn accounts and emailing your vacancy to candidates registered for job alerts.   It really is that simple! 


Recruitment Advice & Support

Our Recruitment Advice and Support service is delivered across three informative sessions, tailored to the specific needs of your business;

  • You’ll learn how to attract the right candidates for your vacancies by creating effective and properly targeted job adverts.
  • We’ll also provide advice on what you should be looking for in a CV and application, along with guidance on short listing candidates and how to understand different qualifications.
  • Finally, you’ll learn about interview formats, assessment tools and selection criteria with the aim of finding an approach to recruitment that best suits your particular business. Advice on salaries is also covered.

Our Recruitment Advice and Support package can also be delivered as one intensive session.



Flat-Fee and Full Recruitment Options

We value our role in bringing together great local employers and talented candidates across a wide range of sectors.  We offer two recruitment options so you can select the most suitable solution for your business, whether you are simply trying to alleviate your workload or are looking to outsource your recruitment process to a specialist.   Our Flat-Fee and Full Recruitment options are specifically tailored to your business needs, the local labour market and your particular employment sector.
