Passive candidates represent a key talent not to be missed

2015 is already proving to be a competitive year for recruiters faced with skills shortages and a high demand for quality hires from companies. We will continue to witness a big shift towards closing the gap between active and passive candidates; a key talent pool not to be missed.

In today’s global market, passive candidates, meaning those not actively seeking employment opportunities, represents two thirds of the population.  A recent survey confirmed that on LinkedIn 45% of these passive candidates would be open to talking to a recruiter about new job leads yet this remains a hugely untapped talent pool with only 61% of companies actively recruiting passive candidates.

Our recruitment strategy capitalises on this by looking to acquire top talent, whether active or passive using social media to build strong relationships with top talent regardless of current job status making the potential recruitment process timely and efficient and providing the client with the best “cultural fit”.
