As a Contingent Recruitment expert I operate and manage the vacancy much the same way as most recruiters would work on a retained recruitment project. My focus is areas that clients can’t tap into – calling competitors employees that are not advertising their availability. Exploring all avenues with all CV’s and considering applications from all candidates equally. I then select the best people and start submitting CV’s – when most ‘other recruiters’ have sent in 4-5 CV’s and then moved onto work other clients vacancies. What if there were other better candidates available, Would they get a review and a submission – No and the client gets a ‘tainted candidate list’. I work this was as i believe and expect that my clients have already exhausted their own recruitment avenues – Then its time to call up your preferred head hunter – Julian Saunders!
Candidates CV’s and Interview capability is aligned with their achievements, and your expected achievements. Submitting only the top / most ideal candidates, means fewer candidates to process, interview and choose from. By only sending the best candidates that are well prepared they will focus on their achievements and how they could replicate such activities for their next employer. How they have previously delivered the same level of achievement previously is the key focus.
As a client you will have an excellent pool of candidates to interview. When I can’t find candidates that I believe are worth you interviewing, then I work with our clients reviewing the position with to assess and adjust accordingly.
The trick here is to represent the best candidates and to do this faster than the other channels. If for instance the vacancy is hard to fill, chances are there will only be a few candidates out there qualified for the position. Getting to these before everyone else is vital for the successful no win, no fee recruiter.
