Traditional Challenges Faced in Recruitment

75% of job seekers consider an employer’s brand before even applying to a job. When working with multiple recruitment partners, it can be difficult to keep track of the way your company is represented.

Building an employer brand

Recruiting for a niche role often means sourcing talent from a small pool of candidates that many other companies are already dipping into. As demand increases for specialised talent, it becomes increasingly difficult to secure top candidates.

Lack of qualified candidates

Today’s world poses many challenges to the hiring process. It takes the right tech stack, candidate network and know-how to work with remote and international candidates effectively.

Hiring remotely

According to studies, 76% of hiring managers struggle to attract the right talent. Employers need to attract the right candidates while discouraging those that aren’t a good fit.

Attracting the right candidates

A talent pool enables HR teams to fill a position in less time and with fewer resources involved. However, building a high-quality international talent pool takes significant time and know-how. 

Building talent pools proactively

We needed to quickly fill a position in Europe for a Customs Compliance Specialist. Working with Leonid Group made recruiting simple. The LeonidLive platform provided all of the necessary information easily in one place and allowed for a simple comparison between the candidates.

It’s well worth investing in the cost of Magic Month upfront because you receive a great deal of value. Leonid becomes an extension of your talent acquisition team and conducts a thorough search to find talent that isn’t on the market – and passive talent is the best!

I was very impressed with the professionalism and speed with which Leonid was able to identify a global leader in business and ethics compliance for my business. His approach to recruitment and his methodology were very effective. The quality of the candidates selected and presented in such a short time was remarkable. I unreservedly recommend Leonid Group for recruiting in the compliance field: it is the best option on the market.
