After the preliminary screening sessions by JobCentre Plus, charities and myself we were ready for the Employers’ Speed Dating sessions held at Southwark Cathedral’s Gary Weston Library on 24 January 2017.
We call it speed dating because there are no cvs nor job descriptions. The selection is based on personalities alone! A unique way to recruit.
Employers had a table each and small groups of applicants on 10 minute rotation to decided who they wanted to see for the final selection stage.
(l-r – Scott, James & Lois from Mitie Connect)
Scott and James were new to Growing Talent. Despite not knowing what it was all about properly – they embraced the change and identified Stefan who joins the team on a global cosmetic account.
Frances & Dan above are used to Growing Talent having recruited several members of staff on previous programmes. Here they are chatting with Ilamathy. Working for a global hotel brand – it’s not always easy identifying the ideal candidate(s). Growing Talent allows confidence in all hires for all parties.
Selvan and Shane of Invest in Buy to Let have several companies between them. On this occasion, they were seeking a personality to fill a marketing role.
Jamie & Adam of Pertemps are huge supporters of Growing Talent not only filling their own consultant vacancies but trying to support those who don’t get selected for a place.
Ebb and Christina her colleague from Holiday Inn Bradford Lock were joined by newcomer Gemma of Crown Plaza hotel in Canary Wharf. Ebb is a cheerleader of Growing Talent having recruited from the programme previously. She also appears in the latest film with Michel Burke – check out the Case Studies tab at http://www.growing-talent.co.uk
