Talentheads, a leading recruitment specialist in the North East, has launched a new campaign called ‘More than a Number’ aimed at ending the recruitment trend of simply filling vacancies with the quickest and simplest solution. According to Talenheads’ founder, Sam Spoors, the campaign aims to end the ‘transactional and numbers based’ recruitment trend and to find the right candidates, rather than just any candidates. The approach needs to change and those recruiting need to take a more rounded view of both the needs of the company and the employee.
To achieve its unique approach, Talentheads embeds itself within a client’s company to truly understand the company’s culture and needs, resulting in growth of over 300%. Sam recently named Entrepreneur of the Year by the North East Chamber of Commerce.
To help launch the campaign, the Talentheads team took to Newcastle City Centre kitted out in t-shirts with slogans and messages integral to the campaign’s messages. The campaign aims to serve as a wakeup call to those employing to do what has always been integral to Talentheads, and that is to find the right candidates rather than just any candidates.
This unique approach has resulted in impressive growth, a rapidly expanding team and a string of awards. Recruiters need to take a more rounded view of both the needs of the company and the employee. The campaign aims to shift the recruitment focus to finding the right candidates, ending the industry-wide trend of ‘putting bums on seats’. Therefore, businesses of all sizes need to take a cue from Talentheads and ensure that candidates are more than just a CV.
