The problem spooking recruiters right now and the sweet solution
You are recruiting for a person fluent in a foreign language. You write the job specification and requirements for candidates. You upload the job advert on to a job site. You get a lot of responses straight away. This is brilliant, isn’t it?
Wrong. An hour after posting, you have amassed 100 responses, some of which have fluency in another language and the required skills for the job, some don’t. By the end of the day, you have been flooded with hundreds, if not thousands, of people applying to the job. You start to sweat as you realise that you and your team are going to have to scroll through tonnes of applications, CVs and cover letters searching for the right candidate. Not to mention the interviews!
This is the reality of the job market right now. Overall, unemployment since the start of the pandemic has increased by half a million according to the Office for National Statistics and it’s forecasted to get even higher as the fallout from the COVID-19 recession intensifies. Finding that person in the multitude of applicants, that needle in a haystack, will become even harder.
Now, how do you get around this problem? You could hire more recruiters who spend their time sifting through candidates. But this is expensive and time-consuming. You could try some of the traditionally large recruitment firms. Will these give you a personalised experience? Probably not.
This is where ABL Recruitment steps in. We have been recruiting for almost 30 years. We have a database of over 150,000 candidates who are multilingual, skilled, and experienced.
