Talent Acquisition

Laying the groundwork for industry-leading teams

How talent mapping, pipelining, and talent intelligence support talent acquisition

The world of work is entering a new era, and unless your internal talent acquisition teams are ready to adapt, they risk missing out on the best candidates. Multiple industries are now fighting over the same talent pools, and it’s only getting more competitive. Our mapping services take a thorough research-led approach to identify talent, including those working for your competitors or in other sectors.

One of the most challenging parts of any talent acquisition process is identifying candidates. Our mapping capabilities combines industry-leading research via specialised teams with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence to provide detailed maps of potential candidates from many sources.

Talent pipelines provide a highly efficient approach to multiple hires, providing your Talent Acquisition team with a pipeline of fully qualified candidates interested in joining your business. This frees up their time to focus on the valuable work of managing the interview and offer process.

Today, talent intelligence is more important than ever with competitor insights, brand perception and talent analytics all playing a significant role in talent acquisition. Empowered by data, your talent acquisition efforts can be even more effective, providing the business with more strategic value while answering critical talent questions from hiring managers, stakeholders and the leadership team.

  • Talent acquisition teams can be highly efficient for typical recruitment, but challenges can arise when demand overwhelms their capacity or capability.

  • Often the volume of recruitment your internal team has to manage leaves little time for identifying and engaging the most sought-after passive talent or creating robust candidate pipelines.

  • Whether it’s providing lists of qualified prospective candidates for your recruitment team to approach or supporting business-wide hiring programmes, we solve your talent acquisition challenges with cost-efficient, agile and scalable solutions.

Our Approach

We work as an extension to your talent acquisition teams to ensure we’re constantly supporting them.

This means we can be completely flexible to your needs with a scalable service designed to evolve and respond to your requirements. 

From providing thorough and expansive talent maps to pipelines of ready to interview passive candidates, our talent acquisition solutions help add the required capacity and capability to your current team. We provide our service on a project by project basis, or as an ongoing partnership to clients at various stages of their talent acquisition journey.

Talent intelligence as a capability is still very much in its infancy for many businesses and corporate talent acquisition teams are becoming more aware of this field. Our support extends beyond talent intelligence as a service and is delivered by our industry-leading Insights & Analytics team who have a full consultancy capability.

We work with forward-thinking leaders and their teams to transform their current capabilities into a new function, providing insights and intelligence as a true strategic business partner.
