Skills shortage? Working as a team is crucial

[ 2007] Recruitment is a team effort between mainly the three role players in the recruitment function.

1) The employer
2) The recruiter
3) The candidate

A lot of time in recruitment is wasted because of bad communication among the role players. We have included new functionality in our Web-enabled recruitment procedure to assist in communication and empowering all three of them more in the recruitment process.

Our recruitment procedure is designed to match candidates accurately to employer/job specifications and make life easier for employer and candidate.

This is facilitated by our highly-skilled recruiters. Our procedure relies mainly on categorisation of job-seekers and job specifications across the whole IT skills spectrum. New candidates and jobs are immediately categorised into 20 categories, based on job functions.

We look carefully at:

* Career path development - Types of companies the candidate worked for in the past.
* If the candidate was successful in a certain type of company or team, then he would certainly also be successful in a similar company/team.
