Our close ties with a large number of farms, many of which have been using LKL services for over 20 years, reflects our total commitment to meeting the needs of individual farmers by providing staff with the right skills and motivation. LKL’s people expertise is also widely acknowledged by many of major farming industry’s institutions and government departments, which has led to numerous introductions and subsequent business relationships.
LKL’s network of field-based managers, supported by a small team of specialists based at our Salisbury headquarters, is responsible for maintaining regular contact with farm owners and managers, providing help and advice on all aspects of farming personnel management.
An LKL consultant will first visit you at your farm to carry out a professional appraisal of your labour requirements. This will include the drafting of job specifications, the development of suitable remuneration packages and establishing related employment conditions.
Once this stage has been completed, we will search through our register and draw up a short list of suitably qualified candidates that meet your requirements. In the event that no suitable candidates are available, we will advise on an advertising strategy, including advertisement design and placement, and will conduct an initial screening of resulting applicants. We will also attend short-list interviews, providing guidance and support in terms of final selection and appointment of the successful candidate. You benefit by using LKL to recruit your permanent staff so you save time.
Most vacancies can be filled from our register, avoiding the lengthy process of advertising the position and screening applicants you therefore save money. By utilising our expertise you can avoid the heavy expense involved in recruiting the wrong person you therefore minimise the risks. As people professionals we offer a guarantee on all placements made through LKL. In the event that a candidate proves to be unsuitable within the first month of service, then we will recruit a replacement free of charge.
