    Summary
    ATTRACT THE HIDDEN ICT SALES TALENT YOU CANNOT ATTRACT YOURSELF DOES YOUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS DELIVER TOP TALENT FOR YOUR BUSINESS? According to a recent survey LESS THAN 20% of people are actively looking for a new job TODAY. Our clients tell us that the value they get is to get introduced to the top talent they don't see from anywhere else; their recruitment is now a success where they had previously failed. Attract candidates from the 80% that are not actively looking (without ignoring the other 20%), THE BENEFIT TO YOU IS CLEAR; you will know that you have seen the best talent that is available today, not just those you managed to get to respond to your job opening. AND YOU WILL SAVE MONEY! ARE YOU LOOKING TO SAVE MONEY ON YOUR RECRUITMENT? Most people look at their spend on external recruiters to save costs. Fees paid to external recruiters seem high, if you can manage to find the people you need yourself then they are unnecessary (and we are not cheap!) so we agree, if you can effectively recruit yourself why wouldn’t you? Many of the clients we successfully work with today, tell us they are looking to reduce recruitment costs but have found that these costs are not just about how much they pay the recruiter, the hidden costs are the time spent by each person engaged in the process, time wasted by: • Reviewing countless inappropriate CVs. • Undertaking a multitude of first stage interview to get to a shortlist. • Candidate dropouts due to lack of proper engagement, ineffective screening, verification of qualifications and achievements. •Re-recruiting for the same role when the recruitment fails due to, say, a lack of a proper qualification process. **Discover 5 reason top performing sales people will never join your business** http://goo.gl/hlvZLW https://jimfoster2556.wordpress.com Office Number +44 1344 388 033 Email - jfoster@antal.com Specialties: Executive Search, Recruitment Solutions, Head Hunting, ICT Recruitment, Sales Recruitment
