How Our Data-Driven Approach Revolutionizes Recruitment For Clients And Candidates Alike

But what exactly is this approach?

Updated: 5th February 2024

Since our inception in 2016, we have prided ourselves on a unique strategy for effective recruitment, with a real drive over the past few years to a data-driven approach. It’s something that has set us apart and allowed us to make far more informed and long-lasting connections between clients and candidates across a number of industries.

But what exactly is this approach?

We use this definition of our working style because of the data points we generate from the detailed and in-depth research we carry out on both candidates and clients alike. This data could be anything from the industry a candidate works in and their previous areas of specialism, to the amount of people a prospective client of ours employs, their growth plans and where their skills gaps may lie. It’s all in the quest to provide both sides with a solution to only receive the most relevant contact and information from us that’s truly in the interest of their career aims or business plans.

So, what are the benefits?

Our data-driven approach offers a number of advantages, and none more so than supporting our market mapping strategy. Being able to call upon a wealth of data and insight allows us to build a meticulous picture of industries and staff that is unrivalled in the UK recruitment space. Using this data, we can identify candidate density, job locations, any disparity between skilled candidates and relevant opportunities in regions, as well as the facts and figures surrounding salary trends, pay brackets, and wider employment benefits. When working with clients and candidates, all of this information allows us to give a level of valuable guidance and advice they are unlikely to find elsewhere.

Having this understanding means clients only receive information from us that is entirely relevant to their industry or recruitment plans. It also means that, through the power of our data, prospective and active clients will only be introduced to well-matched candidates for their active roles, based on the job brief and the industry and experience they have outlined to us, not just receiving a candidate that ticks one box. It also means we can help them plan better for future recruitment aims and benchmark their financial offering with other similar businesses.

When it comes to working with candidates, data is used once again to accurately profile them with their industry, experience, qualifications, and the level of jobs that would be a step forward to offer them valuable progression in their career path. This means we are continually ensuring our candidates are receiving not only relevant roles through our communications, but also progressive job roles. So, from a candidate’s perspective, working with us will mean that when they are ready to take the next step in their career, if it’s not available at their current employer or is taking too long to come about. As a result, they will have the option to review and pursue the different types and level of jobs available to them, in line with their aims and experience.

Another benefit of data is to be able to successfully introduce candidates and clients based on more than just the role itself. Whether it’s the size of the company or team, the culture and style of the business, or the ambitions and flexibility of the candidate, our data means we can make connections that have a better chance of matching and lasting for the long term.

In such a people-focused industry, it’s vital to go further to make sure the right person is placed in the right job at the right time - and our data-driven approach is the key to our success.
