Aligning Talent with Opportunity

What makes us different?

Talent acquisition has to be Proactive rather than Reactive for a business to remain competitive. At Distil we understand that no company can afford to be complacent when it comes to the attraction of Tech Talent. A key part of avoiding such complacency is understanding that the traditional methods of candidate attraction are redundant. Gone are the days of simply placing an ad, filtering applications, interviewing and offering in an agreed timeline. A company needs to keep the lines of communication with the IT community permanently open, not just when they have a particular vacancy.

Our role is to act as a conduit in this process – to ensure that your business, your opportunities and your culture are represented in the IT market at all times, particularly to ‘inactive’ candidates. We recognise that the recruitment model is no longer a finite service, but an on-going dialogue between your key personnel and the IT community, with us in the middle as your Recruitment Partner.

Why work with us?

Partnership Approach

We will work with you to gain a full understanding of your company, culture, product as well as the opportunity for our candidates. It is a consultative approach where we provide on-going feedback through the recruitment process and work with you to refine search methods when necessary. We also provide market feedback, salary information and advice.

Ambassadors for your business

We can actively promote your organisation and opportunities to the passive IT candidate market to generate interest and awareness. We spend time getting to know our candidates beyond the content of their CVs. We approach each potential candidate differently according to their personal motivations, understanding the best way to promote your opportunity to individuals as opposed to a ‘mass market’

Manage the Process

We recognise that we are all working in a candidate-driven market will help tailor your process accordingly to ensure we target and reach the best people for your business. We manage the candidate aspect of your process from search through to placement. We advise on and manage salary offers, maintain contact with candidates throughout, give honest feedback and manage counter-offers. Our role doesn’t end until the person is part of your team.

On-going commitment

We continue to think about your business, even when you aren’t actively hiring. We can make you aware of suitable candidates who come on the market and continue to promote your business to our candidates as a valued client on an on-going basis.
