Whether recruiting for government, the private sector or not-for-profit roles, using a specialist scribe has many advantages. Taking reliable and detailed minutes for selection committee members is certainly a core scribe service. However, quality, knowledgeable and experienced scribes add value to your recruitment in many other ways.

As an employer, it is key to scope the full spectrum of scribe services, for individual positions and larger recruitment rounds. This will support your immediate recruitment needs, but also enable you to adopt a more strategic approach to future proof your recruitment.

It can be challenging to choose the right scribe. face2face manages a quality, experienced team of 20 scribes who come from diverse backgrounds and offer deep knowledge across all sectors. Our professional, reliable scribes work for organisations, large and small. Some have been scribing for over 20 years and have completed over 600 assignments. Most have direct APS experience.

Our reputation for quality scribing service is demonstrated by our many long-standing relationships with organisations. Multiple clients return to us time and again for their scribing needs.
