Why modular recruitment?

Written by Leigh Foster

Popular modular recruitment services are split into 3 main sections; Project Management, Candidate Sourcing and People Assessment.


  • Project Management

This is a vital part of the recruitment process to plan and coordinate the activities needed to reach a successful outcome that is on time and within budget. 

‘Fail to prepare, prepare to fail’.  So answer these questions to yourself – What’s going to be the measurement of success for this assignment/project?  What are the key competencies expected of the candidates? Have you developed an action plan to achieve the objectives?  Assigned individual responsibilities to make this work?

It runs from the initial briefing at the start of the process through to negotiating offers and conducting reference checks and works for whatever method of candidate sourcing is needed to attract the right calibre of person. 

This service is typically used by companies for its expertise and experience to meet its goals at times of peak recruitment where internal HR resources are pushed.

  • Candidate Sourcing

This involves an expert assessment of how to locate the right candidates at an entry-level cost and usually includes:

  • Evaluation of the role
  • Assessment of the market
  • Writing the job brief
  • Advertisement
  • Managing the whole process
  • Reviewing CV’s

This service is normally used by companies who are unsure of the best strategy of how to attract the most appropriate talent for this post.  This could be down to volume or niche requirements for the role that requires the specialist search to attract the right ability.

  • People Assessment

This improves the quality of external hiring by using specialist assessment techniques.  This can include:

  • Structured telephone interviews and assessments
  • Psychometric testing, depending on the role, can include general aptitude/ ability/personality management potential/competency/leadership style
  • Using a knowledgeable shortlist facilitator or observer

We tend to see this piece used when businesses embark on large scale recruitment campaigns to sift, select, evaluate and screen the best candidates for the role.
