Why use us
Aimed at positioning ourselves between the traditional Executive search and Recruitment agency models and providing solutions the market asked for.
Prior to launching Real Talent Matters and responding to client feedback and demand we spent several months canvassing various sectors to gain an insight into the market frustrations associated with the provision and quality of recruitment services. A gap was identified for a different approach to mid/senior tier management, professional and technical talent acquisition and assessment.
Results highlighted that preferred supplier list (PSL) / contingency recruitment encourages speed of response rather than quality of response. Whilst contingency recruitment may be appropriate for lower level positions, market feedback highlighted that hiring companies are generally only provided candidates who are actively seeking a career change; and candidate assessment/due diligence is often overlooked.
Middle to senior tier management, professional and technical positions are often critical to companies and access to candidates only seeking a career change limits a hiring company’s ability to attract the real talent that may add value and make a difference.
Executive search provides access to off-market talent, however the full blown executive search process is time intensive and possibly difficult to justify at mid/senior tier management and professional/technical levels. We worked on creating a unique offering that combines rigour, quality and access to off market talent delivered via the front end of an executive search process with the pace and responsiveness required to fill roles of this level through our bespoke Talent Portal technology.

What is the true cost of a bad hire?
Have you ever calculated the true cost of a bad hire i.e. someone who leaves your business during their first year of employment? In most cases, the true cost is roughly 3.5 x their annual salary which, clearly has a negative impact on business. Our unique Bad Hire Calculator uses the latest data* and super clever algorithms to work out what the true cost is to you!
