Most recruitment leaders I speak to just want their recruiters to pick up the phone. But with so much data, systems, and an apparent lack of process, over 150+ distractions a day, the phone is often the last thing a recruiter is likely to use.
Then add to that recruitment marketers supposedly needing to create blogs and websites to attract candidates, and needing recruiters’ insights to drive this content, the role of the 360 recruiter may now be 720!
Automating the Candidate Attraction Process
Content is a great word if you’re in marketing, but a dirty word if you are a recruiter. It can cause conflict between marketers and their recruiters – marketers need it, recruiters have no time for it.
Client and candidate loyalty, which is at an all time low
Recruiters who are saturated with systems, but need to sell more
How to get the concept of inbound sales easily and fully embedded into recruitment to “make the pain go away” and get the right candidates and clients engaged and “buying”
We talked about:
What is a recruitment automation tool? There’s a lot of talk about AI.
How recruiters can combat this nasty stat: Only 24% of sales emails are opened.
How can you generate “inbound sales” as a recruiter when you have 1000s of candidates on your database?
How can automated recruiting and content enable you to make more phone calls?
How can you get candidates to show their faces?
With 30% of Google searches being job-related, how can recruiters genuinely cope with this volume of data?
Content curation v content creation – what’s best?
What’s the difference between a cold and a warm call?
How can recruiters generate more warm calls? And once they have generated a warm lead, how quickly should they follow up?
Where does the marketer fit into this model?
What can recruiters actually say on the first call?
We talked about my “dig up stupid” model for recruitment data. It’s crucial that the data that recruiters are collecting is used by marketers to generate warm leads, not simply stored on a recruitment CRM ready for the next GDPR purge.

Recruitment Marketing Event for Sales and ROI-Led Marketers
Recruitment Marketers need ROI from Marketing - whether it is more candidates, clients, colleagues, or cash... With that in mind, we presented the Marketing in Recruitment event with Members Only. It was for recruitment marketers who need to understand and prove ROI.Recruitment Marketers Need to Measure the Success of Their MarketingGenerating tangible ROI remains the holy grail for all recruitment marketers, but it can be a difficult goal to achieve. Simon at Members Only asked me to compere the event, so I used it as an opportunity to "pep talk" the marketers and their leaders.I talked about:The compelling reasons for sales and marketing to work together… 38% higher sales and 36% higher retention.How 98% of Marketers have experienced conflict with Sales at some point in their career and 73% of recruitment marketers are frustrated that their leaders just don't "get" them.What I think needs to happen for sales and marketing to be more connected and thus effective.If 60-70% of the content a marketer generates is never used, and 80% of leads are never followed up... what needs to happen?If 2/3 of the marketers who left their jobs last year said "not enough training", how on earth does the recruitment industry expect their marketers to generate any ROI?Read the slide deck from the event - food for thought?
