Recruitment at the leading edge of technology

“Innovation,” said Apple’s Steve Jobs, “distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” If you want to get ahead of the rest, then you need to recruit the talent to get you there. People with the vision, skills and experience to harness technology to continually modernise and transform your business. 

But that’s easier said than done in today’s tight job market, where demand for IT talent outstrips supply. Below, our team of specialist IT recruiters offer their insights into finding and hiring quality talent who can help your business innovate.

Can a recruitment agency really help unlock the potential for a business to innovate?

The right recruitment agency can, yes. Innovation is about understanding what your competitors are doing and trying to do something a bit more forward thinking. Having a wide network of contacts in the technology industry and proactively researching the market in Australia and overseas is crucial to a company’s ability to innovate. 

We know the high-performing professionals in the market, and we know about game-changing projects happening across our global client base. So we’re well positioned as a recruitment agency to advise on the pitfalls and success factors when it comes to recruiting professionals who can unlock innovation for businesses. 

In this tight recruitment market, how can organisations secure the best talent to unlock innovation?

It’s really important for organisations to act quickly when they identify a strong candidate - a competitive salary will support the pace of the recruitment process. Over the past year, we’ve seen clients create smaller teams of highly paid experts because a lean team that is very productive may deliver better results than a larger team who are less equipped to innovate. Remember the Netflix talent philosophy:

The best thing you can do for employees - a perk better than foosball or free sushi - is hire only “A” players to work alongside them. Excellent colleagues trump everything else.

In addition to this, it’s important to work with a recruiter who is known and trusted. You want a consultant who is dedicated to your technical vertical, knows the market, has a large network of existing contacts, and can react quickly to your requirements.
