What is the Coolest Tool the Recruiter Can Use?


Many recruitment leaders I speak to want to improve recruiter productivity, and have invested heavily (and wisely) in the right recruitment software, but they will also say “why don’t my recruiters do what I need them to do?”

If recruiters are going to actively grow, then the “coolest tool”, the recruiter, needs to be tackled – but how?

Too Many Systems, Not Enough Process or Recruitment Training?

Look at the stats:

  1. Recruiter attrition 25%+

  2. 2/3 of people quitting their jobs citing a lack of training

  3. And how much it costs to replace a recruiter (£10k per new recruiter to get them billing)

…are not great reading – and ironically the answer to the problem is point 2.

In this episode of the Recruitment Leaders’ Podcast, I’m joined by Alex Moyle from Recruiting Gym. He has been in recruitment for nearly 20 years, which includes training and development, and has trained 1000s of recruiters and managers.

Alex and I have been in recruitment and training for a long time, and we talked about:

  • What is one of the most important things a recruitment leader needs to do for their team of recruiters?

  • How can recruitment managers get their recruiters to recruit more effectively?

  • What’s the one thing that Alex feels that learning / training will really have an impact on in 2019?

  • What are Alex’s hacks for recruiters to help them with business development?

  • What tips did we both have for how to monetise recruitment data?

We also talked about my data “dig up stupid” model and you can read more about this here.
