The average time taken to review a CV is 8.8 secs, according to National Citizen Service. Time pressure and increasing application levels is continuing to squeeze you into a process of elimination likened in an Independent article
to ‘swiping through Tinder.’
With the recruitment processes becoming less personal and less considered, how can you ensure you are making the right choices?
As recruiters it’s our job to get to know our candidates, often meeting face to face and almost always building a long relationship that transverses multiple career moves and life changes.
When sat with our candidates we have our clients in mind… would this person suit your culture? Would you be excited about their experience and skills? How soon can I tell you about them?
There is no greater joy than knowing your client inside and out. Having a good understanding of our clients we know exactly what kind of candidate you want to see. Therefore, we only send you CVs and portfolios to review that you will want to see and that you can afford to spend time on.
The difference between a specialist recruiter and a generalist is that specialists take time to get under the skin of candidates and clients alike, and make exceptional, long lasting partnerships based on knowledge and understanding, that benefit both parties.
For us meeting clients is just as important as meeting candidates. Having the opportunity to meet you and experience your organisation first hand is incredibly valuable. If we know the kind of people that make your business what it is, we can provide you talent to continually develop a high performing team.
We know that our clients are overwhelmed with meetings and its not always possible to squeeze us in. However, when you consider the time wasted reviewing completely useless CVs and Portfolios - perhaps it's not so bad!
