What channels do technology & telecoms recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

What channels do technology & telecoms recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

Recruiters in the Technology & Telecoms industry rely on 3 main channels: their Website, Employee Referrals and Professional Social Networks for finding candidates for open positions.  

Over half of in-house recruitment teams within the Technology & Telecoms industry also turn to agencies for help in filling their jobs. This can have a big impact on a company's cost of hire.

Social Media is used by 42% of respondents (up from 36% last year) to source candidates. Those channels used by less in-house recruitment teams are CV Databases, Events and Specialist Job Boards.

Which sourcing channels work best in technology and telecoms?

The top right quadrant shows the channels that deliver the best quality and quantity candidates. Professional Social Networks rank highly along with Agencies and Talent Pooling. 

Using a Talent CRM as a pro-active sourcing tool is used by just over half of talent teams (55%), but is delivering a decent return. Take a self-guided tour of the ATS/E-Recruitment features that should be working to help you to attract and nurture great candidates.

Website/Careers Site is the most used channel but slips into the ‘red’ zone alongside social media. Albeit producing better results for candidate quantity and quality than Social Media.

Technology & Telecoms sector hiring challenges

As well as the scarcity of candidates in the current tight labour market, a lack of brand awareness is a key challenge for the sector. Other challenges such as building a diverse and inclusive workforce and reducing time to hire also rank highly.

Having the ability to regularly monitor and measure the effectiveness of sourcing channels becomes all the more important to counteract challenges faced. We know from the Candidate Attraction report findings that those who have an active metrics and analytics programme report greater quality of the candidates they attract.
