We use a combination of print advertising in local, national and industry/discipline specific journals, alongside web based advertising, to identify personnel across a range of functions. This duel approach enables us to reach a broad candidate base and where necessary, to identify individuals with particular technical and leadership qualities.
Advertised selection also offers a highly effective means of locating up-and-coming managers, taking account of their potential as well as their experience. Importantly, it attracts passive job seekers as well as active job seekers and helps with profile-raising if the company's branding is also used.
Managing advertised selection campaigns from inception to completion consists of three stages:
We conduct a thorough study of the client company (including business needs and strategies, market position and company culture) and set out the key responsibilities of the role and the personal and technical qualities of the job holder.
Based on our brief, we will liaise with our client and agree a budget, make the appropriate media selection, write advertising copy and prepare all artwork. Using our client's brand may increase or decrease the level of response and we will recommend the most appropriate course to take.
Proven interview and assessment techniques ensure that only the most suitable and talented candidates are included on the shortlist. At all stages we keep the candidates and client informed and engaged in order to ensure commitment and achieve a successful outcome.
Supporting advertised campaigns, Composites People provide our clients with a browser-based recruitment management package. This internet software is a powerful communication tool allowing clients, through secure passwords, to access 'their' assignment at any time to review progress, review candidates and communicate comments.
