Much like job seeking, when you’re delivering on a recruitment project, it warrants your full, focused attention…
It’s likely when you’ve finished a recruitment project (having placed successfully got another job seeker hired into a perfect role) you’ll do just what I have done. That is to review the documented timeline and corresponding data to remind you of the specific details, especially when it’s yet another successful hire (this time a SEO Job) for a local, inhouse (clientside) opportunity for a brand who has used clockworkTalent’s services 7 times. We’ve expanded the team over the years, adding specialist skills to their now holistic inhouse marketing function, most recently growing from 4 to 8 Digital Marketing practitioners!
Whilst in recruitment mode, it’s all about finding the right skills sets within an employer’s commutable circumference AND ensuring that individual lives, eats and breathes the core values and culture of the company. None more so than with this employer, Mind Tools.
Based just outside of Brighton, this international brand with Sussex origins, delivers online management training to both global corporate and individual subscribers whose goals are to achieve personal development. Interestingly, it’s their own product and services which make them as good as they are; taking the best of what is possible and applying it to their own management techniques. In turn creating a relatively unique collaborative environment in a beautiful, modern open-plan office situated in an agricultural venue of converted farm buildings in Mid Sussex.
When SEO Consultant Warren Hill reached out to me, it was with delight I accepted his invite. Upon enquiring whether he might consider some additional SEO work for a locally based company where he’d be utilising his core skills and contributing to the brand’s implementation of the overall marketing strategy, it turned out Warren and I had a lot of mutual connections. Of course I was delighted to hear he was already familiar with clockworkTalent and our focus on digital marketing recruitment.
We worked with Warren to improve his CV so it displayed both his breadth and depth of skills – many of those tips can be found on our popular blog on “How To Write a Great CV”. We edited it down to an eye catching, punchy 2 pages which represented him to his best.
From there, we rapidly set up his 1st interview and from the feedback it was evident Warren had done his homework.
Not only was he well-versed with his responses to interview questions probing into his technical SEO strategy and skills but he had also clearly done his due diligence into the company’s online presence. Warren understood the extent of their massive site and was able to act as the true consultant looking at the user journey and identifying where he could add value both in short term wins and longer-term strategy.
Within 2 weeks of first contact with clockworkTalent, we had been fortunate to secure a mutual match in Mind Tools’s SEO requirement and Warren’s proficient SEO talents. Warren has started his new job and it has been delightful to hear how well he’s fit in, already getting under the skin of MindTool’s site and focusing them on their optimisation journey.
From Warren’s side, it’s been great to hear his thoughts on the new role, how he’s enjoying both the challenge and the people. He’s been kind enough to write up his review of clockworkTalent’s recruitment expertise which helped him secure his new SEO job:
Natasha shows a huge passion for the digital industry and working with her was an absolute delight! She really took the time to understand my needs and within just a couple of weeks of submitting a C.V, I was introduced to the perfect role!
The journey with clockworkTalent was smooth, fun, and well communicated and lead to me being positioned in a great company with amazing people.
Being Brighton based and up to date with the latest gossip, I had already heard good things of Natasha and I will be another one to add, that I highly recommended you get in touch, as in my opinion she is the go to person in the industry.
