Talent acquisition

The right talent at the right time

A few years ago, together with our customers we realised that top candidate were no longer applying for roles, and that the candidate market had become a pure “demand market”.

We therefore look at the candidate market as a whole and mainly do active sourcing to get in touch with candidates who are passively looking for new opportunities. This significantly increases the chances of hiring the best currently available candidates.
