CORRICULO – IT RECRUITMENT SPECIALISTS COMMITTED TO PLACING YOU FIRST
Corriculo is committed to providing both employers and candidates with clear and transparent, expert assistance in the IT job market. Using experience and innovation we aim to provide businesses and candidates with a high-quality alternative recruitment solution to the traditional agency approach.
The aim of Corriculo is to provide a true, consultancy-style service to our clients. We have strong values that run through our business – backed up by actual behaviours – that dictate how we approach our clients’ recruitment needs and problems. We strive to be a true recruitment partner, not just a recruitment agency.
THE STATS DON'T LIE
Whilst we can’t control the final outcome of our IT recruitment activity, we can control the activity itself. Every aspect of what we do is recorded, analysed and carefully targeted. Monitoring and reacting to core KPIs allows us to track the performance of our business and be proactive, ensuring that only the highest levels of IT recruitment service are delivered to our clients and candidates. Our key metrics below are current and are updated each month.
- 53% of Vacancies filled
- 73% of CVs achieving an interview
- 92% offers accepted
At Corriculo, we’re proud of our record and the KPIs that our hard work and dedication has produced. We are open, honest and transparent with our statistics to both candidates and clients with results being updated on a monthly basis.
THE CORRICULO APPROACH
We use our knowledge and expertise, to understand not just the daily duties and responsibilities of the job vacancy, but the core aims of the position and the team dynamic. We’ll consider where candidates may be currently and their likely background. We’ll also discuss the options open for training, development and future development. This information is then used to identify a candidate that can not only fill the role, but who will go on to be a long-term hire.
As well as traditional avenues, such as advertising and database searching, each of our Consultants has undertaken certification offered by one of the industry’s most innovative thought leaders. This provides training to source candidates through channels such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+, together with best practice for approaching and engaging candidates. Where required/requested, our Consultants also have the necessary training and experience to map out and execute successful head-hunting campaigns for roles across the digital sector.
Once a potential candidate has been identified and engaged with, a telephone screening follows, before an in-person interview is conducted. We follow an uncomplicated interview structure and also take a copy of the candidate’s passport/ID to validate both their identity and that they have the right to work in the UK. Where appropriate, we use a leading online test provider to create and administer a test of an agreed length and level of difficulty, to cover the key technologies or skills that your position requires.
Following the conclusion of the assessment stage, those candidates deemed most suitable will be presented to you. Each candidate will be represented by a current CV, their test results, and a written summary of the 1st interview. A typical Corriculo shortlist will comprise of between 3 and 5 candidates that we feel are suitable for your job vacancy.
Once the offer has been agreed and accepted, we monitor the receipt and acceptance of the contract, together with the candidate’s resignation. We will provide honest advice to both candidate and client at this stage, ensuring that all parties are happy with the deal on the table. We will provide clear communication and guidance towards a successful resolution.
Once all have agreed, we ensure precise due-diligence is completed. We gather employment references and submit to you for review. Once the candidate has started, we support them through their first few months. We address and concerns and, if appropriate, escalated to you. Many long-term hires have been achieved, in spite of early “wobbles”, through management of the on-boarding process and beyond.
At Corriculo we’re so confident in our methods of IT recruitment, that all candidates employed via this approach are underwritten with a 6 month guarantee, that – subject to our terms of business – should the candidate leave or be dismissed within 26 weeks of the commencement of their employment, we will repeat the process to identify an appropriate replacement, at absolutely no additional cost to you.
