Before we start 🏁
Before we start we need to get some information to hit the ground running and align on the right priorities.
You will send us the job descriptions for the roles you would like us to work on If available you will send us the (estimated) hiring plan for the next quarter(s) We have an intake call to discuss all requirements of our cooperation: Discuss the roles we will be sourcing on and hiring priorities Define scope of our work (sourcing, screening, scheduling, offering, onboarding) Discuss process requirements (e.g. usage of ATS, frequency of update calls, etc.) Discuss templates to be used to approach candidates and information that can be shared Discuss companies not to be approached from Discuss current recruitment process Confirm start date of our cooperation Plan follow up meeting to discuss
Start cooperation: Hiring plan 🗺️
Depending on the availability of data we will create a hiring plan in the first three days of our cooperation.
If available we like to receive data on (if available):
Conversions per recruitment stage
We will do a market research on the following data points:
Analyses current employees on LinkedIn Example of market research We will create a sourcing strategy based on your requirements Example of sourcing strategy
Together we will create an expected recruitment funnel based on your and our data
Example of recruitment funnel Discuss overall hiring plan and optimize recruitment process where possible Plan daily, weekly and monthly communication moments
We like to be in continuous communication with you. However, we have a set of predefined communication moments during our cooperation.
In the first week and sometimes the second week we have a daily check in to discuss our progress. We give a short update on our actions and our progress and discuss any questions that might arise.
Every week we have a half an hour update call to discuss our progress. We discuss candidates that are in the process, share some of our learnings and discuss the priorities.
Every month we have an hour review of our cooperation. We share the actual number of all the activities in the month, compare this to previous months and if needed to external data. We share learnings from both sides and agree on the priorities for the next month.
Quick communication: Slack / Whatsapp
With several of our clients we communicate directly into their slack. With other who don’t use slack we communicate via Whatsapp.
Preparation and intake calls 🤙
Request client to fill out intake forms per role We will pre-fill the intake form(s) based on job descriptions Schedule call with hiring managers (1 hour) to discuss the role based on our intake form We build a sourcing strategy We create outreach messages for LinkedIn, email and other platforms We will find first 10 candidates per role to iterate on with hiring manager(s) and/or recruiters We create interview scripts Schedule shadow interview calls with recruiters Optional check on inbound strategy (vacancy texts, jobboards, social media) Receive full access to ATS (if possible)
Execution of search, qualification and IV process 🚀
Prepare timeline and targets for the week and month We will start to source based on initial sourcing strategy We will start to outreach and interview candidates Schedule call with candidates that replied positively Prepare call with candidate by reviewing his / her profile, drafting initial questions Perform call with candidate (follow the IPMERC rules for the interview part): Check on fit for the role based on the evaluation criteria set out by the client Check the technical and cultural match Agree on way of working / Rules of Engagement Salary expectations (be very specific) Send candidate a follow-up email in which you explicitly confirm the Rules of Engagement and salary expectations Prepare candidate introduction with client (in case good client) based on the agreed evaluation criteria Send candidate introduction to client directly or via the ATS with a follow-up email and remind them of the agreed turnaround time and request a call to discuss candidate / batch of candidates Push client for feedback in case the deadline expired and highlight why we need feedback fast (competitive market, candidate’s availability, candidate received another offer, candidate in process with other companies) Perform call with client on candidates to get feedback and potentially exchange views on candidates in case of open points after evaluation form. Also discuss what the interviews look like Do a preparation for the interview including: Communicate within 24 hours to candidates whether they have been invited for an interview Schedule a preparation call with candidates before the interview Send the candidate preparation material Perform preparation call with candidate and schedule evaluation call In case applicable: share latest insight pre-interview with the client and schedule evaluation call (per candidate) Feedback on the candidate: Perform evaluation call with candidate Note down all questions and interview details that the candidate has shared Perform evaluation call with client Call with candidate about client feedback and follow-up Schedule potential next rounds and follow the same logic as above
