Go Compare were struggling with a high volume of tech roles, with a need for different specialisms and skillsets, and a tight deadline to have all successful candidates in-situ.
They came to Yolk so we could streamline their recruitment processes, saving them time and ultimately finding them the perfect fit for their tech teams.
The tech space is a candidate short market. Talent attraction is difficult and counter offers are rife as employers are working harder than ever to retain valuable expertise.
High workloads and reduced staff levels. For Go Compare, all roles reported into 1 manager who was low on available time, making logistics of interviewing problematic.
Strict timeframes. Go Companre had a requirement for all new recruits to be in situ within 3 months of campaign commencement.
How We Tackled It
A partnership approach - working on a retained basis allowed Yolk to commit 2 senior consultants to the campaign immediately. They worked with the wider business to ensure maximum resource against each of the vacancies.
Experts in their field - Yolk engaged the database and active candidates immediately, and the technical teams were able to quickly tap into passive networks for each of the 4 specialisms.
Know your candidates -Yolk spent time to understand candidate motivations and expectations at the start of the process, pre-empting potential counter-offers up front to minimise surprises at the back end of the process. The team supported candidates through resignation and any counter offers that arose at this stage.
Interviews, screenings & tracking - Yolk completed all first stage interviews on behalf of our client as well as specific technical screening and diversity tracking.
1 WEEK from campaign commencement to secure interviews for each role
9 ROLES fulfilled within 6 weeks of engagement
85% INTERVIEW TO OFFER ratio due to client being confident of candidate’s technical capabilities
100% OFFER ACCEPTANCE due to effectively managed offer and counter-offer process
3 DAYS saved by the client by completing interviews on their behalf
