"Differentiating through candidate management"

Candidate Attraction

We invest huge amounts of time networking within the Creative, Media and Technology sectors to ensure that we are in touch with most people, as opposed to just those applying to online job adverts. This involves proper headhunting (not just sending speculative LinkedIn messages, but actually using the phone), market mapping, asking for referrals and engaging with people through content marketing.

Candidate Care

The lost art of the recruitment world – how many times has a recruiter failed to call you back when they said they would? We endeavour to provide the level of candidate care that you deserve. This includes delivering on promises, keeping in touch, providing proper market updates, CV feedback and generally being friendly!

  • I engaged Hawkwood to help me hire an in-house technology Resourcer – not an easy find! They listened to my needs carefully and didn’t try to change my requirements to suit the candidates he was working with. Every candidate they supplied was relevant for the role and we made a hire incredibly quickly. This was my first experience in hiring someone to report to me and I found Hawkwood to be very supportive and they gave loads of good market advice. I would recommend Hawkwood to clients and candidates alike.

  • Hawkwood have successfully placed all members of my People Team, along with myself! They took time to get to know both my business and the existing team. We were then given a variety of candidates – all offering something different until we found the right match. Communication is always engaging and warm and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to clients and candidates alike. Thank you!

  • Peter is an excellent recruiter. He is friendly, transparent and was very communicative during my job search, which put me at ease. I felt he had a very tailored approach to matching my skills and experience with relevant roles and many of his clients feature the most innovative tech companies in Europe. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone searching for a new role within HR.

  • I have recently used Hawkwood to recruit an In-house Recruiter and was thoroughly impressed with the service. They understood what I needed and helped me refine the brief, prior to sending me a strong shortlist of candidates, from which I subsequently made a hire. The process was extremely straight-forward and I was kept updated throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Hawkwood to anyone looking to recruit an HR role.

  • It has been an absolute pleasure working with Hannah. She spent the time to get to know our company culture, helped me to scope out the job spec and develop my understanding of the type of candidate that would suit the role. She sent through excellent candidates, always kept me up to date with feedback and helped to secure an amazing new recruit for my team. She’s also very funny, optimistic and really cares about finding the right person for you and the right opportunity for the candidate. I can’t recommend her enough!!
