Employers Hub | The easiest part of executing a candidate search

Ironically, the execution of the search is usually the easy bit once we have the foundations in place. The first three steps of our process should be covered by now, so we are ready to get started.

So, what next?

Firstly, we refine the message that we are going to give to the market about your brand. Then, we make sure that all the key selling points of the opportunity are neatly packaged up so that we can approach the right people with the right message at the right time.

We have also built out a profile by now, so we know who we are going to approach. We’ve also mapped the market thoroughly and have identified potential employers to headhunt from as well as verticals and experience levels to focus on.

From there, it’s a team effort and, while your Account Manager will be your point of contact, we will have a team working behind the scenes engaging with candidates and helping to shortlist talent.

While we might be engaging with the right candidate already, it’s still important that we spread the net as wide as possible to cover as much of the market as possible.

Some of the places we’ll engage talent are listed below;

  1. Our extensive network of candidates with whom we have relationships that have been nurtured over many years.
  2. Various headhunting tools, including LinkedIn and other databases.
  3. Social media – we have more than 15,000 followers on LinkedIn alone, and that number is growing.
  4. All major job boards.
  5. Active candidate referral program.

The execution of any search is only as good as the planning and preparation that goes in. Sticking to our four-step process is a big reason why we have a 13.5 working day turnaround from job brief to offer on average, as well as a 93% fill rate and a 97% candidate retention rate through the probation period.

Employer and Job Seeker Hubs | Smoke, mirrors and OTEs

The world of OTEs can be a murky one, full of misconceptions, inflated promises and unrealistic expectations.

Simply put, an…

Employer and Job Seeker Hubs | Disruptions to agency recruitment and where value now lies

There has been a flow-on effect where TA teams are now armed with more and more technology geared towards streaming the recruitment process and automating it as much as possible. Examples of this have been the use of video interviewing and AI, especially when it comes to high volume recruitment. This, in turn, has increasingly limited the…

Employers Hub | Is there a disconnect between head office & local realities?

A common occurrence that I’ve seen when recruiting for local satellite offices that are run from overseas (especially new ones) is that there is often a disconnect. Examples of this include when marketing content and collateral haven’t been properly localised or when base salaries are benchmarked against rates in other countries, or when the local…

Employers Hub | Are you falling into the bias trap?

Once bitten twice shy. The psychology of failure can be hard to overcome when hiring new people. “When a good decision leads to a bad outcome, the experience of regret can bias subsequent choices: people are less likely to select the regret-producing alternative a second time, even when it is still objectively the best alternative…
