Our team regularly spend time meeting clients and candidates alike, but when we aren’t able to meet in person, we utilise cutting-edge video technology to ensure that both client and candidate engagement isn’t compromised and processes run at maximum efficiency.
In the fast-paced and evolving world of interim recruitment, the need to be agile and react quickly is an absolute must. Long and laborious processes don’t benefit either party and our success lies in our ability to confidently move processes forward at pace through our proactive approach.
Statistically speaking, using traditional methods, it often takes more time from initial engagement to first interview, than it does to get from first interview to offer. The first stage is also the point at which most candidates will be disregarded for a role, with far fewer hires at this level falling through at the later stages of a process.
Because we utilise direct, trusted and referenced consultants in conjunction with video technology, we are able to take the most specific of briefs and see them through to completion. Having engaged with us initially to discuss your needs in depth, we then take that information and create a series of bespoke questions specific to the experience and skill set you require.
We then record a video interview with our chosen consultants where they have the opportunity to fully elaborate upon their relatable skills and expertise. The result of that recording is then sent to you, complete with a C.V., all neatly contained within one email.
This method proves successful as it is seen as being the first interview stage of a process where, as a hiring manager, you get a clear understanding of whether that individual not only has the skills and experience you require but, more importantly, is able to present and articulate them to you at the level required.
This can also be shared with any other people within your organisation who are involved in the hiring process, avoiding the need for multiple stages of interview to meet various members of the team and management.
Having received these details at the top of the process, you can then make a far more informed decision of who to take forward for final conversations. The speed this offers is essential in the interim market and ensures you are able to confidently move through a process at pace without compromising on quality.
As we’ve already identified, the time it takes from engagement to first stage interview can be problematic and is also one of the biggest frustrations faced by a candidate. This is followed closely by then being discounted after the first interview when it becomes apparent to both parties that you don’t have the required skills or level of knowledge the client is expecting.
