With the continued growth of online databases such as LinkedIn, have automotive design recruitment agencies become surplus to requirements?
We believe this isn’t the case and indeed the role of a good recruitment specialist is even more important for both a business and the person seeking a new role.
With a large proportion of people on LinkedIn connected to 3,000+ individuals; it is assumed that if they post an advert then, miraculously, they will have the right person apply. Or an individual will see the advert for the position they crave. In most cases the right person doesn’t spend their time sitting on-line to see the job post sandwiched between the adverts and portfolios.
Advertising every position on your website is also an option but brings in multiple applications which can make meaningful applicants harder to spot.
At drive our approach is more targeted – we are not looking to fill 500 positions. Our aim is to match the experience and talents of design personnel with the desire’s of industry’s leading design teams. Drive also look to support our valued clients (individuals and companies) by matching personalities, talent and experience with the right roles.
We believe in discussing candidates’ cv, portfolio and dream role with them and using our experience to advise them how to adapt what and how they present to potential employers. Thus giving themselves the best possible chance of succeeding.
