As a recruitment marketer and recruitment leader you’ll be focused on ROI: adding real value to your recruiters and helping them attract the 3Cs – candidates, clients, and colleagues. (And ideally help them convert these into cash!)
But often, marketing is seen as merely admin - and in many recruitment business, it is. But it should be sales!
Marketing is SALES if Done Right - It's ADMIN if Done Wrong!
As an award-winning Affiliate of APSCo, my team of recruitment trainers and I have a passion for ROI. We work with recruiters and their marketers to deliver what we call the 4Cs – candidates, clients, colleagues, and cash.
Recruitment Marketing ROI should never be just theory - if you plan for candidate attraction, client leads and colleague job applications, they will happen!
But often, when I start mentoring Recruitment Marketers, they are beyond busy. Busy doing lots for things which can often lead to very little ROI.
Sales is not connected to marketing in reality or even in theory. Lots of marketing tasks lead to a lack of the 4Cs - and ultimately a disconnected approach which forces recruiters to have tenuous (and stressful) pipelines.
Recruiters need to spend an average 13 hours per week sourcing outside of their key recruitment system
80% of leads are never followed up
Recruiters get very little time to get on the phone and improve candidate and client experience, so that their own experience is not great
43% is the average attrition rate of a recruiter (25% higher than the "norm")
72% of the placements made last year were with candidates already on your Recruitment system, before you wasted crucial time sourcing them from elsewhere
76% of recruitment marketers can't use the recruitment system you have, or the data contained within it
But still sales is sales and marketing is marketing...? No - sales is marketing, if done right! Both marketers and sales need to get SMART.
