Recruitment Projects

We break down the recruitment process into different modules which allows for flexibility to choose what support you need.


Recruitment projects are not always geared towards making an immediate hire, we also assist clients with talent pipelining, succession planning, and insight services. 

Talent mapping involves researching the marketplace to identify candidates who can fill skill gaps, providing insights into competitors and available professionals.

Talent pipelining, a proactive strategy, builds a pool of potential hires and establishes relationships with candidates for future roles, useful for short, mid, and long-term goals, especially for making quality hires at short notice.
