Talent Sourcing & Screening

We leverage our data-driven insights to identify and engage higher quality candidates, faster.

With many in-house recruitment teams feeling under-resourced, some organisations are struggling to identify the volume, skills or diversity of talent that they need. Whilst a full RPO may be the best answer for some businesses, others prefer to manage the process internally, drawing on specialist support as required. In response, we have developed a flexible solution to help customers find the talent their business is looking for.

Using our Talent Sourcing and Screening solution, we help companies expand their talent pools, accelerate speed to hire, and increase workforce diversity by designing, managing and optimising the candidate sourcing and screening processes. Using best-in-class technology, we engage talent at all phases of the acquisition lifecycle including, passive, active and opportunistic talent.
