Three reasons why a company will use a search process to find talent

  1. To access a larger proportion of the candidate marketplace and tap into niche, sector or geographically specific talent pools. By using a search approach, a company can increase their chance of finding the right candidate. Some companies know well enough that they will have a small pool of candidates to choose from on certain roles, such as technical specialists. For example, a maritime engineer position with an EPCM is unlikely to have a flood of applicants.
  2. As a last resort. Even though there are multiple ways to find talent, a company will engage in a search if they simply can’t find the talent on their own. A previous history of having trouble locating and attracting suitable candidates for similar roles is an indicator that search approach may be required.
  3. To gain valuable competitive information along the way through the market intelligence discovered whilst carrying out a search process.
