How we help
Do one of more of these statements resonate?
- Your team's capacity doesn't match the workload
- You need to recruit from a pool of specific BD, marketing and/or innovation talent
- You have difficulty defining the role in adequate terms or detail
- You need to write a compelling job description
- You are unsure what the 'going market rate' is for a particular role or skill set
When appointed, we act as the independent voice and face of the client. We can offer guidance on the right role and financial package required to attract optimal talent and then manage the entire recruitment process through to negotiation and offer.
We speak to candidates all the time and have a talent pool ready to draw on. We pride ourselves on positioning opportunities in a way that connects with the motivations we know exist within the target talent pool. We focus on building trust, understanding individual motivations and career aspirations and having open and honest conversations. We know which candidates are active (ready to move, motivated to move and actively engaging in a job search) and which are passive (not currently looking but might be open to listening to someone they trust about new opportunities).
