What’s stopping you winning the race?
Does this traditional recruitment process sound familiar to you?
1.You receive CV from Agency
2.You then review that CV/ send to relevant hiring manager to review
3.Go back to agency to confirm you would like to interview & find out candidate availability
4.The agency then call the candidate back to find out availability
5.The agency then call the client back and share that the candidate is no longer available
Even if this process happens within something as short as a 24Hour period, the reality in a candidate driven landscape is that other opportunities have become available for the candidate. The impact & candidate commitment has been lost, and they are no longer as high up on the candidates list as they were originally, purely due to choice available

2.At Pioneer Selection, our specialists spend on average 50 minutes interviewing each candidate, covering everything from technical skills to goals and motivations. In our eyes when you carry out your 1st stage interview, we see this as 2nd stage interview. We do all of the ground work as part of our consultative service so that it should be a personality match for you and your team.
3.This maximises candidate commitment and speed to market in the best way to get your jobs filled quickly. You would, of course, receive the CV's minimum 48 before and if there was a situation where you wanted to swap someone out, we can of course accommodate. We appreciate your time is valuable, therefore, we will never fill up an interview slot to tick the box, this is only done, when we are confident the candidate is a potential placement for you.
Does this traditional interview process sound familiar to you?
1.First stage interview
2.Provide feedback to agency
3.Second stage interview
4.Provide feedback to agency
5.Start negotiation process with agency
Leaving a large gap between first and second stage interview longer than 3-4 days runs the risk of the candidate losing commitment, and could be in contact with another company.
Utilising interview slots due to the fast-paced market- a smooth interview process does help with candidate commitment. It is a frustrating time for clients when it is a candidate driven market. We are finding that interview slots really do help the process
We spend on average 50 minutes interviewing each candidate on our side- so in our eyes when you carry out 1st stage, we see this as 2nd stage and should just be about personality and fit etc

Does this traditional job offer process sound familiar to you?
1.Present & negotiate a verbal offer to the agency for the candidate
2.Candidate verbally accepts the offer
3.Agency sends over details to draw up a contract
4.Contract sent to candidate
5.Wait for the contract to be returned
Without definitive time scales, having a delay on a physical contract being sent electronically or by post, runs the risk of a candidate continuing to stay on job boards, actively interviewing elsewhere, and losing momentum on your opportunity.
Share the offer for the Candidate to Pioneer Selection. Pioneer Selection will present this to their candidate on your behalf.
Pioneer will send over the personal details for the candidate so a contract can be emailed/posted to the candidate - ideally within 48 hours.
Pioneer will manage the process of staying in touch with the candidate up until their start date to maximize commitment levels for you
