We have just completed a Search for a Local Authority. They had been looking for a Senior Water engineer for a year. Not our normal role but using a social media strategy, search, our AI & Big Data tools we found someone in 6 weeks.
There is lots of jargon & myths (perpetrated by the industry) about search One head hunter I talked with made it sound so much more than what it actually is. Here are the basic steps:
- Clear definition of the role
- Research the market
- Develop Search strategy – social media, advertising, referral programmes, online search & attraction, messaging.
- Implementation of strategy ensuring consistency & compatibility around messaging. Approach, qualify & interview to create a short list
- Long list to the client
- Narrow to 3-5 candidates
- Offer and negotiation
- Update unsuccessful candidates.
All the steps are important, but steps 3 & 4 are evolving with new search technology and social media. Social is important both on hiring and candidate sides.
