How to find the very best candidates – whatever methodology is needed

“Great course. Job well done. Thank you.”

“Was a fantastic course – continually engaging, have learnt a great deal and has had an immediate impact on my working practices. Highly recommended!”

This course is aimed at Resourcers, Researchers and candidate-facing Recruiters. This is an in-depth research course to help you identify and approach ‘A’ grade candidates and includes all methodologies.

If you want more of an overview and help with the process of a search campaign, including client management, then our Successful Head-Hunting course is more appropriate. If you wish to learn how to win an assignment and sell search, then our Selling Executive Search and Winning Retained Assignments course is right for you. If you need any help in choosing the best option, please contact us.

With technology constantly being improved and social media becoming ever more accurate, being able to attract and source the very best candidates – and quickly – for your vacancies is vital. The recruiter’s bar keeps being raised. Maximising your chances of success means that today’s successful recruiter has to be able to blend the old with the new and the current with the cutting edge.  Your existing database is still the first place to look of course. But if that 4 year old CV doesn’t quite fit the vacancy criteria, being able to quickly & proactively source that same individual’s most recent details might just help you produce a quality candidate for the role. Should we now ignore the job boards? After all, there are now so many potentially blurring what works? No of course not – but you do have to be able to identify the most appropriate one(s) and write killer ads if you are going to get that quality applicant at the start of their search. And if that still isn’t producing you the star candidate? Then you have to step up to the plate and go find them!

This one day course will explore and deal with how best to:

  • Utilise your database
  • Write winning adverts
  • Have candidates coming to you via social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.)
  • Via social media, identify individuals you want to approach
  • How to build a strong network
  • Use Boolean logic and X-ray techniques to find information & people
  • Have a robust and proactive candidate sourcing process & pipeline
  • Introduce yourself positively both online & over the telephone
  • Become your sector’s recruiter of choice
