In line with growing customer expectations, a recent survey shows that citizens also expect governments to better understand the needs of citizens and communities, and to make sure that services are tailored to the needs of people who are using them.
A key challenge facing public sector employers is standing out in a crowded market, whilst competing for the best candidates in often shrinking talent pools. This is especially true in disciplines such as teaching and social care where fewer candidates are entering these fields and increasing numbers are leaving them. This means that the candidates have more choice than ever before.
Building a brand that is not only recognised but also trusted can be critical when it comes to convincing candidates to choose one employer over another.
Businesses should be using data analytics and increasingly sophisticated CRM systems to help simplify and control the level of complexity of roles, labour markets and the sheer volume of recruitment and how to respond.
Talent Insight identifies trends, challenges, opportunities and the major players, both businesses and individuals, so you can make better informed business decisions.
We’ll scour relevant talent pools to identify qualified candidates for your talent acquisition team to approach.
From the initial approach to the interview stage, we’ll engage hard-to-find and/or passive talent, screening each candidate against your hiring criteria and deliver a list of ready-now or ready-later candidates for current and future requirements.
Our thorough approach to executive search allows us to identify and secure the high-level candidates who can guide your business through times of transformation.
We provide a fully outsourced process for ensuring leadership hires in your business, allowing you to focus on business priorities without worrying about succession or finding new leaders.
We verify a candidate’s background and credentials to ensure every hire you make is the right one and to mitigate hiring risks.
By identifying the strengths and weaknesses of executive candidates, we make sure only the best join your senior team.
From establishing new talent pools and supporting business growth to identifying leadership teams who can help the company meet new customer demands, our insights will give your talent acquisition strategy an unparalleled advantage.
