How We Find You The Perfect Candidate

Some recruiters will rush and find anyone they can to fill the role, but at Tonic Talent, we commit to four important stages, research, source, screen, and aftercare. This allows us to get to know you, your business who and what you are looking for when hiring the perfect candidate.

See below the four steps we take for hiring the desired candidate for your business:


  1. Client visits
  2. Understanding your culture
  3. Consultation
  4. Short-term goals
  5. Long-term goals
  6. Long-term support

This is the first stage of the process of hiring, research. This allows us to meet and get to know your business inside out, what your short term and longterm goals are, what your budget is, what experience you can offer to candidates and what experience you’d like the candidates to bring to the table. Not only can we help for the now, but we can also help with the future of your business.


  1. Social media
  2. Multiple job boards
  3. Extensive network
  4. Contacting local candidates
  5. Internal database

The source stage is where we get down to the nitty-gritty. From gathering the roles and requirements you are after for your business, it’s all in our hands.

This step is the poaching stage, this is where we approach potential hospitality and catering candidates that stand out and get them on board for an interview. We look for relevant candidates across all boards, from social media shout outs, job boards, networking and contacting candidates that are open to new opportunities.


  1. Call
  2. Interview
  3. Inform
  4. Introduce
  5. Reference check
  6. Strength identification

This is the exciting bit of our job, where we make things happen. The Screening stage is where we narrow down the potential candidates for phone calls, interviews and create a shortlist out of those who are interviewed and those you feel were successful.

We keep both the employer and candidate up to date making sure the role is suited to both parties and arranging dates and times that are the best fit for both ends. From the successes of the interviews, we then supply a confidential reference and all the necessary paperwork which includes the contact and terms and conditions for working. The last step of screening is choosing the start date.


  1. Three or more check-ins during probation
  2. Two-point confidential support
  3. Free replacement

At Tonic, we believe the aftercare of recruitment is just as important as the recruiting process.

This final step involved checking in on the employer side and the candidate side, making sure both parties are happy.

Unlike other recruitment agencies, at Tonic, if you believe that the candidate is not right for the role then we will give you a free replacement.
