Finding, identifying and hiring the right people for your business can be a stressful and time-consuming process. Our expansive network of the top IT, digital marketing, engineering and executive talents allows you to access a pool of hard-to-find, specialised professionals through a proprietary process that matches both your timeline and budget.
Our step-by-step hiring process
Step 1 – Identifying the hiring need
The first thing on our list is to gain insight into your corporate culture and goals and understand what an ‘ideal candidate’ means to you and your company’s culture. This allows us to generate a customised recruiting-experience and create a prioritised list of job requirements, including special qualifications, characteristics and experience that you are looking for in a candidate.
Step 2 – Planning & advertising
The agreed-upon job requirements and candidate profile allow us to form the basis for the job description. Once the job description is polished, we advertise your job vacancy on our corporate online job platform, on our social media channels and on the best tech job boards. In the meantime, we discuss with you the criteria for the initial candidate screening and interview questions.
Step 3 - Searching
We conduct comprehensive searches via social media and industry events, such as seminars and meetups, to attract qualified candidates that are actively searching for new jobs. We also use our company’s unique platform to maximise our reach with potential candidates. This proprietary technology platform, combines all of our search tools to create a hub that will contain the most appropriate and qualified talent for your roles. It allows us to create a customised search for each role and simultaneously reaches all relevant talent in our network and have access in more than 20,000 active candidates.
Step 4 – Applicant screening
As job applications arrive, our headhunters review résumés and cover letters based on the criteria established in the planning step. Unqualified candidates’ applications are withdrawn from the applicant pool. At this stage of the hiring process, we select the best applicants through in-depth competency-based interviews and technical tests. During interviews, our headhunters may assign applicants with pre-employment tests to assess personality type, talent and emotional intelligence.
Step 5 – Applicant talent assessment & background check
We finalise the shortlist of candidates that is sent to the client. Afterwards, we get a feedback and we start organising face to face interviews with the client. We always adapt our process depending on the companies’ hiring procedures. At the same time we run background checks to verify the candidates’ employment history and eligibility.
Step 6 – Reference checks & hiring
We check for references on the preferred candidates to collect details on their job performance, strengths, and weaknesses. Once the choice is agreed on, we negotiate the offer between you and the candidate and confirm the candidate's starting date. If no candidates meet the hiring criteria, the hiring process will start over.
