Professional Services Recruitment Applicant Tracking System

Recruitment in the Professional Services sector can be demanding and relies on having access to the right talent, with the right skills, at the right time.

What channels do professional services use for sourcing candidates?

What channels do professional services use for sourcing candidates?

Professional Services recruiters rely heavily on Careers/Website for finding candidates. There is also widespread use of Professional Social Networks and Employee Referrals.

Just over half of in-house recruitment teams within Professional Services turn to Agencies for help in filling their jobs. This can have a major impact on a company's cost of hire and it is worth reviewing other sources that can generate a good quantity and quality of candidates.

Which sourcing channels work best in professional services?

If we drill down on how Professional Services recruiters are succeeding with talent attraction the Sourcing Quadrant paints a clear picture. Specialist Job Boards, Employee Referrals, Talent Pools, CV Databases, Professional Social Networks and Agencies are all good sources in delivering candidates.

But other channels, like Social Media lag behind, which is a common picture across the board. Career Sites are underperforming which is disappointing as the top used channel.

Responsibility for candidate sourcing in the professional services sector

Responsibility for candidate sourcing in the professional services sector

In Professional Services the responsibility for finding and attracting candidates falls, in the majority, to in-house recruiters. Agencies and hiring managers also have responsibility so ensuring you have recruitment software that supports working collaboratively will keep everyone in sync.

Understanding the different audiences involved and their needs from an e-Recruitment system is essential. These free checklists are a good souce for sense checking requirements.  

With Eploy, as well as getting an award winning Applicant Tracking System, you get a dedicated hiring manager portal and agency portal that's so easy to use and stay in control of your recruitment strategy.


You can't manage what you don't measure

Just 27% of recruiters in the Professional Services sector regularly monitor and measure the effectiveness of their sourcing channels - that's 73% who dont! Yet research shows us that those who have an active metrics and analytics programme consistently report greater quality of the candidates they attract.

With Eploy you get complete recruitment analytics built in. You can create dashboards that measure and monitor, in real-time, every aspect of your hiring process - including your recruiting costs.
