Building Direct Resourcing Capabilities (Sydney)

22nd February 2018
Kittyhawk, Sydney

This event looks at the benefits of direct resourcing and how a company can use it effectively to recruit the best talent.

Thanks to social media and the many ways that are being developed to attract and nurture talent, employers have access to the same potential candidate pools as 3rd party recruiters. Yet, many employers are still not embracing the obvious benefits of being able to source their candidates directly. Direct resourcing allows employers to deliver the employer brand message/experience that is true to them, instead of a representation from a 3rd party recruiter.

Events are FREE but places are limited and are EXCLUSIVE to in-house recruitment, resourcing & HR professionals.
