We know every organisation faces its own unique set of challenges when recruiting, so we’ll tailor a solutions to match your specific needs. We have extensive experience of recruiting for clients who have different challenges due to a number of factors from location and sector, through to specific talent shortages for certain types of experience or skills. We will spend time to understand these challenges and look at pulling together a specific campaign to maximise the opportunity of providing the strongest possible shortlist. We have also recruited for a variety clients who’s challenge is more based on the number of roles to fill in a short period of time when teams or departments are being put together, we also have experience of doing this with the added complication where the roles were based at numerous different sites or offices.
Each requirement is assessed and the solution will be based on the specifics of the opportunity, the type of business you are, current market dynamics, where any role is based and also the level of the opportunity. Once these have been discussed in detail and we understand fully what you are looking for, we can then scope the solution, drawing from the following resources :
Partnered with an Expert : You will work with an expert in your market and /or the area you are looking to recruit. When working with a new client or contact we are more than happy to provide examples or references from clients where we have recruited similar roles to give you the added comfort that we have the experience and track record you are looking for.
Candidate Network :
Existing Network/Database – We are speaking to and meeting candidates daily and our existing “live” candidate database is second to none, with a number of these candidates choosing to work with us exclusively having built a relationship with us over a number of years. The “live” nature of this database enables us in the majority of chases to provide a shortlist of candidates in a relatively short period of time.
Betterplaced.com – the Better Placed Website is updated and refreshed regularly and was recently re-launched (Jan 2021). The site not only acts as a talent attraction tool, but its also a live portal and hub for candidate and client information. Our blog covers newsworthy and industry insights and candidates have their own portal and log in so they are able to keep in touch with the business as and when they want to.
Betteplaced.com advertising options : There are various options on our site that give us the ability to offer clients the opportunity to support any recruitment campaign with branded advertising and the option to mail to our database the details of a specific opportunity. These options are available to all clients that work and recruit with us to support any campaign or requirement.
Online Advertising : Better Placed partners and work with some of the UK’s leading job boards, such as Reed and Totaljobs giving us access to these platforms to support any client requirements. We also have insight into what other more niche advertising options are available based on any particular requirement. We will discuss the option of supporting any campaign with advertising at the point of briefing but this option can often tap into a “passive” market and provide a broader shortlist on occasions.
LinkedIn and Social Media : We have an extensive following across all of the relevant social channels and this platform gives us a voice and opportunity to engage with an active talent pool. How we utilise these tools to support any recruitment campaign will be discussed at the point of briefing. Different requirements mean a different "social" approach, but it is an important channel when used in the correct way. We also have a LinkedIn company following of over 30,000, a valuable tool to tap into when looking for specific skills.
Industry Partners : 2021 has seen us partner with Prolific North as their industry partner for recruitment. We will be working on a series of events and seminars throughout the year, engaging with the digital, marketing and tech communities to help support, look at new recruitment initiatives and source talent.
D&I – please see the D&I part of this website to see what initiatives we are under taking in this area and how we can support any organisation in terms of their own D&I agenda.
Exec Search /Headhunt – an important part of a campaign when used for the right requirement and in the correct way. Better Placed has a Executive Recruitment division called bpesearch who are specialists in executive search. We also have an “in-house” research offering that supports assignments that require an element of search or headhunt.
