“Since starting at Stroud my self-confidence has grown massively – I’m super confident talking to people over the phone or face to face. I’m able to deal with tricky situations and feel assured in my abilities as a recruiter. There is such a great atmosphere, sense of fun and camaraderie in the office. It’s also really lovely having the office dogs in to brighten up your day if you’re feeling down or stressed!”
Charlotte White, Recruitment Consultant
“I feel like I’ve grown so much, both personally and professionally. It’s nice to work with a senior management team who value you, make you feel appreciated, and support personal and professional goals. We work together as a team, look out for one another, and there’s always something fun going on in the office.”
Jessica Storey, Senior Recruitment Consultant
“Working with Stroud Resourcing is like being part of an extended family, genuinely lovely people and you are encouraged by supportive management to develop your career. Personally, I have really developed my confidence, communication, and professionalism. We always celebrate success with something small like prosecco or chocolates, or even social events and trips away.”
Eleanor Cartledge, Recruitment Consultant
“Throughout the pandemic, Stroud Resourcing have been caring, transparent, and flexible with the team. Updates from management were regular, and benefits were amended to include some fantastic pioneering policies. It’s a pleasure to be a part of the team – Joanna is at the heart of bringing us together. She has shown us that compassion, drive and looking to the future are key parts in making our team feel secure and moving the company forward, during what has been a very uncertain time for businesses around the world.”
Erin Falkingham, Marketing Coordinator
Recruitment is the process companies use to source and hire new employees. Most organisations have dedicated internal recruitment teams who will typically try to reach a pool of candidates through job postings on their company website, on external recruitment sites, known as job boards, or by searching on job boards.
Job applicants who respond to a vacancy are then screened to determine if their skills and experience match the job description. Shortlisted candidates are invited to attend interviews or other methods of assessment, such as online tests, role plays and group discussions. Employers may then check the background of prospective employees, as well as checking references prior to making a job offer.
As simple as this process may sound, recruiting new employees can prove to be extremely challenging. 73% of candidates sitting on CV databases including LinkedIn are passive job seekers. They are open to hearing about new career opportunities, but they are not actively seeking jobs - the result of this is out of date CVs and incorrect contact details. So if you want to speak to these individual, you must be highly tenacious. This is where we add value.
We train our Employees in the primary skill of headhunting. This sourcing technique targets candidates working for rivals brands who are not actively looking to make a move - they are not sitting on a CV database and they will not apply to an advert no matter how enticing the content.
Using sales and marketing techniques you will be responsible for opening new accounts and developing, managing and maintaining existing client accounts. It takes time to develop repeat business, in your early years this role is very sales focused but our high performance, high reward culture means you are well remunerated.
You will work closely with employers to find the best available candidates. You will be responsible for attracting applicants and matching them to permanent positions. You will work with employers to build relationships and gain a better understanding of their recruitment needs and requirements.
You will draft advertising copy, search on CV databases, name gather and headhunt. You will screen candidates, selling the role to prospective applicants, interview them and match them to the vacancy. You will provide advice to both clients and candidates on issues such as market conditions and salary levels.
This is a career not a job – it is a demanding, complex role. It requires a combination of skills:
Consultative selling - you need to understand the problem the customer is trying to solve, recommend a solution and then provide the solution.
Technical ability - sourcing candidates requires a technical ability, people can’t be sold in the same way cars are. Cars don’t have a say in who buys them, candidates need to be skilfully matched to jobs and both parties need to actively agree to enter a work contract.
