Strategic sourcing

With increasing global digitalisation, it is vital to know just where to look so that you can search for candidates efficiently, optimising time and resources. Our strategic approach to sourcing new talent enables our clients to target the communities they need to reach in order to find the right talent.

Using social tools as a means of sourcing individuals has many distinct benefits. For example, it allows a recruiter to gauge the personality and character of an individual to determine whether they are aligned to an organisation’s culture and values. It can also be a great way of discovering how well-connected an individual is and whether their relationships would prove beneficial.
