Strategic Talent Acquisition

Strategic Talent Acquisition

We leverage our direct souring expertise to create and deliver strategic talent solutions for our clients' immediate, medium and longer term requirements. 

Our consultative approach allows us to understand your talent challenges and to design bespoke solutions, providing you with insights to inform talent, HR and business strategy. We help our clients to identify and understand the best talent in the marketplace and create talent pools or external succession pipelines for prospective roles.

A strategic talent acquisition approach builds a bank of engaged, pre-qualified candidates for future vacancies, thus decreasing hiring times. 

Whether succession planning, salary benchmarking, company expansion planning or competitor insight, we assess and inform your talent challenges to design the most suitable solution. 

Our approach is holistic, not ad hoc.

Strategic talent acquisition provides a better understanding of respective candidates pools, such as their career drivers and the perception of your company, and delivers additional information to inform recruitment and wider strategy, onboarding and talent management.

It enables you to get the right message out to the market, proactively improve candidate experience and diversity, and broaden your reach, giving you a competitive advantage.

1. Define the project strategy

The first step in partnering with us is to define your requirements, whether they be linked to business & talent planning, growth, expansion, succession planning, D&I initiatives, talent diagnostics or talent acquisition resource challenges. We scope the most relevant project plan for you, also considering your timelines in budget. Hereby, we work with you to ensure all respective stakeholders are bought in and committed to the process.

2. Research, engagement & insight collation

We identify your target market via direct & systematic sourcing using multiple data sources and networks, initiate engagement conversations (open or confidential), in which we assess the target individuals against the questions of interest, and collate our insights. 

3. Analysis, review & planning

We analyse our findings and present these together with our recommendations. We work with you in order to determine the next steps, e.g. the onward strategy and process design. 

4. Onward management

We support the ongoing candidate management and engagement until an open requisition or handover to your internal talent team or hiring manager. If required, we carry out additional candidate assessment or refresh the candidate pool.

5. Hire & onward planning

In line with your specific needs, we manage the interview, offer, onboarding and referencing stages, as well as post-offer candidate care and further talent development planning.
