Peer Profiling has become an integral part of the interviewing process at Access Talent. We ensure that the person who profiles the candidate has experience of the role being interviewed for. It allows us to understand how potential candidates may perform in a role and to determine a good fit for clients.
Why is this process particularly effective in choosing the right candidates?
Narrowing the field - The recruitment space is crowded, with over 8,000 recruiters in the UK, who are using the same CV libraries, job boards and technology tools. If you asked 10 recruiters to search for candidates for a project role, how many would come up with the same ‘suitable' candidates. How do you filter how suitable these candidates are?
Ask an expert - chances are, when it comes to recruiting for specialist roles like Project Managers or Business Analysts, most general recruitment agencies have not 'been there, done that'.
One of the best ways to achieve this is profiling of candidates by 'Subject Matter Experts'. Someone who performed the role you are looking for is best suited to achieve a perfect match between opportunity and candidate. They've done it, they know what success looks like and what it will take to achieve. A ‘suitable’ candidate really will be suitable.
At Access talent, we are extremely selective in the first instance and then by peer profiling every candidate before we put them in front of you, you know that you are hiring someone who is going to turn up on day one.
Project Managers profiling candidates for a Project Management role, a PMO Director profiling candidates for a key pmo role - that make sense, right?
So why do so many companies still not do this?
Get a partner with the capability to peer profile. You'll get a better fit. Again, the better the fit - the greater the chance that talent you hire will be with you for the long term!
