Career Consultant at CPL – Talent Innovation Hub
Track title: “Candidate-centric sourcing”
I am a career consultant working with a brand new project within Cpl Ireland, Ireland’s largest recruitment company. My team is called the “Talent Innovation Hub” (TIH), although it has not been officially launched yet.
My colleagues and I at TIH have been experimenting with different sourcing methods over the last 6 months with excellent results. There are two models for sourcing: one is “role-based,” meaning that we first get a role and then reach out to candidates. The other is “talent-based,” which means that we start with a talent (who is willing to move) and see which roles the talent can fill. TIH is working with both models, but I find the second to be especially interesting.
Join us and let us have a good conversation about the future of talent-based sourcing.
