We are proud to sponsor the Aurora Foundation
Luke, one of our recruitment training team, travelled the world coaching with children's charities before joining Barclay Jones. As part of our annual CSR initiative, he nominated this charity to receive monthly donations from us.
My life changed following my time in Uganda. I had to do something to support these brave children and their families. Now, not only do the children benefit from eating nourishing food, they have something to look forward to – their mealtimes.
The Aurora Children's Foundation works with the Cancer Institute in Uganda to help provide three meals a day for every child on the ward.
When you read about the great work that this charity does for children and mothers, it's hard not to want get involved. And as a family business, we feel compelled to sponsor a charity which is focused on creating a sustainable solution to end child poverty.

How to STOP Using Only 10% of Your LinkedIn Recruiter Licence
Recruiters spend a fortune on LinkedIn - either in time or cash! Both is great if they can demonstrate ROI from LinkedIn. But the recruitment industry is not known for focusing on ROI from recruitment systems - being focused on the placement means that often recruitment leaders are left frowning at end of year at the costs associated with running a recruitment business. This blog highlights some ways to measure the ROI from LinkedIn.We’ve been talking a lot lately about what recruitment leaders should stop doing; how they can STOP messing up their critical job adverts and START getting real, decent applicants, as well as how marketers need to STOP delivering tactics instead of strategy.A theme which links all of this together is my new acronym:FORMO – Fear of Recruiters Missing OutWe have become a generation of tech / app / extension / data proliferation and the process is screwed up. This has never been more so than with LinkedIn Recruiter (RPS Licence). I’ve written before about how recruiters do not expect ROI (return on investment) from LinkedIn. I often see this when I work with recruiters to help them confidently purchase / renew the licence.Yes, they have the LinkedIn Recruiter training to get the ball rolling. Yes, they run the reports on usage… but they often don’t analyse data what I feel is critical to seeing ROI. They also don’t check in with recruiters and how they plan to implement their LinkedIn Recruiter Licence.When I work with recruiters, I’m not into ‘wham, bam, thank you ma’am’ training. I’m into ROI. It’s sustainable and as cheap as chips!70 20 10 – Recruiters Only Retaining 10%?Imagine if you studied your client and talent (and staff) retention figures and realised that you were at 10%? You’d faint, scream, hide… But as humans, there is the theory that we retain 10% of the training we receive and the rest is a split between watching others and on the job challenges. I’ve been in training in some form or another for 20 years and I totally agree with 70 20 10 training this theory.Aiming to Get (at Least) 100% ROI from LinkedIn RecruiterWhy is it that we often only “do the math” at the end of the day? We often use finance figures from previous activity. We look back at last month and what do we do differently this month? We possibly don’t have enough predictive analysis to help us predict success (or failure).I often get told by recruiters that they need help understanding how to measure ROI from a LinkedIn Recruiter Licence and waiting on placement data is too long a wait (AND this assumes either success or failure, rather than a journey which needs constant management and focus).Here are some data points I feel are critical to helping you understand the ROI of LinkedIn Recruiter:LinkedIn Recruitment Company Page Metrics:LinkedIn Company post ImpressionsLinkedin Company page followersLinkedIn.com Recruiter Profile Metrics:Followers not connectionsNumber of ConnectionsWeekly profile viewsLinkedIn Recruiter (RPS Licence) MetricsLinkedIn Recruiter Usage and Success:InMail Acceptance Rates – I would clarify that this needs measuring against sends/ declines tooActivity – LogIns/Searches/Profiles Viewed/In-mails sent – plus projects and alerts setupRecruitment Website Metrics:Hits to Website from LinkedIn and which pages were the most popularFlow to website and applications – I would add referral rates in Google AnalyticsRecruitment CRM Metrics:Placements – Value by month – have a think about LTV too (life time value)Opportunities – In CRM with LinkedIn as sourceLeads – In CRM with LinkedIn as sourceCandidates / Contacts – source = LinkedInYou don’t need me to tell you that buying a system, especially LinkedIn Recruiter, is not the goal – using it “well” and happily paying the invoice is the goal. Saying “of course we’ll renew” to LinkedIn is a great statement to make, as opposed to FORMO.Your FD telling you that you’ve spent a fortune on tech just to stay the same, is not what you want to hear at year end.Telling your clients that you have every bit of tech going and still you’re having issues finding talent is not a sales pitch, an excuse or even a USP.Stop waiting for placements to happen / not happen before you measure ROI. Habits will have been formed and the system perhaps devalued by then.Start to measure the effectiveness of your LinkedIn Recruiter licence and take action (Recruitment Training) on how effectively and successfully it is being used.Our recruitment community loves our Adapt, Bullhorn, Inbound Sales LinkedIn, Bullhorn and Job Adverts recruitment training hacks.
