If your organisation is looking to progress then it is important that you are not only able to source candidates for your current campaigns but are also prepared for future recruitment needs.
There are a number of tools and platforms to help you source candidates. We have selected our top four places that we recommend everyone considers.
"If you have a lot of recruitment at your organisation it is important that you carefully select which campaigns to put extra effort into. Some campaigns simply require a strong advert to source candidates, whilst others require hours of active sourcing.
Looking back to similar campaigns will help tell you if you need to actively source candidates. If you haven't recruited for a similar role before then it is well worth contacting some job boards, either directly or via an advertising agency, to collect some statistics about the size of that talent pool."
"Candidate sourcing is a large part of recruitment best practice because it allows recruiters to attract the best candidates to their job vacancy.
70% of the global workforce are passive candidates, not actively looking for new positions. It is often difficult to engage with this pool of potential candidates unless you actively approach them.
Active sourcing helps you attract candidates that tend to be a better fit for your job post."
