Recruiters! We know you're likely drowning in data, as well as candidates, clients, unfilled jobs, emails, LinkedIn requests... And perhaps your recruitment systems are not doing what you need them to do - make your life easier!
I spoke with Callum on Ai Recruiter’s 120 Second Podcast to share my best piece of advice for recruiters, resourcers and recruitment leaders, who are keen to improve the adoption of their systems and drive BD - and I did it from space, with a Wookie!
My Interview with Callum Hull at AI Recruiter
Ai Recruiter automates conversations with candidates and clients to find growth opportunities for recruitment businesses. Callum Hull from Ai Recruiter asked me two questions to get me to tap into and share my burning thoughts on my 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry.
1. Lisa, What Is the Best Piece of Advice You Have Ever Been Given?
Buy what you can afford and use it well. Make sure you are focussing on the impact of what you are doing in your recruitment business instead of the cost. Too often recruiters and recruitment leaders have way too many fancy systems and not enough recruitment processes to utilise these systems to effectively drive BD.
2. Lisa, What Is One Myth About Recruitment That You Would like to Debunk?
Humans need to be shown what to do and on a regular basis. Your recruiters may have a sea of the most effective rectec in the recruitment industry but drown in it simply because they haven't received the necessary training. Continuous training improves sales by 50%. Recruitment training, when tackled effectively, can save your recruiters time to bill more.
Here’s What I Had to Say on Ai Recruiter's 120 Second Recruitment Podcast
A sure way to happier recruiters and an effective workforce is to map your recruitment technology to the pain points within your recruitment business and to show your recruiters how to use it. Then your recruiters can get back to doing the things they love - building relationships with your candidates, clients, colleagues and getting back on the phone. The fact is, if the only people benefiting from your rectec are the suppliers, it has lost its purpose. Our recruitment training platform, Recruitment HIIT, is geared to show your recruiters how to use key systems to save time and bill more.

3 Ways to be a Jedi Recruiter
Recruiters! Did you know it takes over 25 hours to watch all of the Star Wars movies? I personally think that's a great use of time, of course, once you've attracted, engaged, converted, and placed the best candidates in the galaxy! Every day is a Kessel Run to the recruiters we work with! Being a Jedi is crucial!To celebrate the annual upcoming Star Wars Day I spoke with a fellow Star Wars geek (and recruitment trainer), Phil, Head of Talent at First Point Group, about what he feels the top 3 skills that Jedi and Recruiters share.Defence – Recruiters Need to DefendThe ability to objection handle, be prepared, to expect the unexpected – that’s part of recruitment. It’s about reading the Jedi path in front of you, and being ready to defend. It’s about defending your candidates, whether they be scruffy-looking nerf herders, or teachers. And being a recruiter is about knowing when to drop your guard. Knowing when to show passion and understanding is key! Knowing when to let the Wookie win is a skill!Knowledge – Be a Knowledgeable RecruiterKnow your market! Whether it be Ewoks, or IT Developers, Millennium Falcon flight skills, or how to down a Dreadnaught, you need to be knowledgeable. What’s old, new, emerging in your sector…? Knowing the market, client, job, candidate, (and who your sister is) is key. Without this knowledge who knows who you’ll end up kissing!Training – Recruitment Training in The ForceLike Jedi, recruiters continuously training is a must. As Yoda says - “There is no try, only do!” As much as Jedi have the gene (midi-chlorian) they need to constantly train to battle dark forces, whether they be dirty data, drop outs, back door placements, or challenging clients (siths?).Jedi, like recruiters, need to follow “the way”, whilst changing lives. They need to know when to lead, when to fight, and when to kiss! Never let it be said that recruitment is just a job – it’s a Way! Someone (Mando) once said… “This is the way!” Thanks Phil– The Force is strong in you!The Coolest Recruitment Tool is the RecruiterYour coolest tool is the recruiter, but when they drown in dirty data, ineffective recruitment processes, and costly recruitment systems, recruitment becomes slow, risky and expensive.Continuous training and effective use of systems increases productivity by 30-40% and sales by 29%.Our high intensity interval training - Recruitment HIIT - helps recruiters source, convert quicker and develop healthy pipelines, and helps marketers generate more of the 3Cs. We aim to save every recruiter and marketer at least 1 hour per day - more billing time, more fees!TRY RECRUITMENT HIIT FOR FREEREAD ABOUT OUR RECRUITMENT TRAININGBOOK A CALL TO DISCUSS RECRUITMENT TRAINING
