HOW WE DO IT

THE POPULUS WAY

Research Driven Recruitment

Understand

A successful search in the shortest timescale is decided at the brief stage. We’ll work with you to develop a robust and stress tested brief to ensure the we all have the same clear understanding of what skillsets and personality types are required.

Successful recruitment is built on understanding needs. We have evolved our recruitment processes to ensure this maxim is consistently and systematically exceeded to ensure we can always identify, attract and hire the right person or team to deliver your business goals.

Identify

To target appropriate candidates, we use primary and secondary research to build a talent map for your review and approval. This is a silent search approach with an established process, conducted in a discreet, confidential and highly professional manner.

Attract

With your feedback we will progress to the second phase, which involves contacting the candidates individually and attracting them to the opportunity.  To do this, we consider your direction from the identification stage, our understanding your business and the candidates motivations.

We will sit down together to review the identified candidates and go over the profile information we gleaned from our interviews. This is a critical milestone and is key to selecting a robust shortlist.

Hire

We facilitate the interview, profiling and reference process, and provide advice on best practice.

We will manage the negotiation and offer. We will then discuss the important onboarding process –  from acceptance of offer, to the day they start.  This is often an overlooked step, but it critical to ensure we land the candidate who is highly motivated and ready for the challenge.
