How much time and money is your business spending on finding new hires? And what savings could you see by changing how you approach candidate sourcing and hiring?

Our latest eBook delves into this topic and reveals key areas where you could significantly reduce your cost and time to hire, allowing you to find and place the candidates you need in a competitive talent market.

ACCESS OUR EBOOK: How to reduce your cost and time to hire

1. Make the most of your talent pool

Nurturing a diverse talent pool is crucial for recruiters and talent acquisition professionals. 

By building and engaging your talent pool, you now have a reliable source of candidates for a wide range of roles, which means you can move quickly and pull from a database of already vetted and engaged talent.

Our JobAdder consultant, Idris Kamara, states that: “Using our dynamic talent pools (or saved searches), you can do the heavy lifting beforehand. That way when a role becomes live all you need to do is click a button and all the relevant candidates for that search will populate in the job. Saving you time and money.”

2. Encourage employee advocacy

Your existing employees can be some of your biggest advocates in the job market.

So, encourage your employees to share their day-to-day experiences on social media!
