Technology has never been so fundamental, so strategic and so important as it is now in the digital age. It is being used to create new business models, products and services, enhance existing offerings and create deeper, more rewarding customer experiences - and as such businesses need to develop the right technology and IT strategy for success.
Docman have undergone a significant period of growth over the past 12 months and Searchability have been pivotal in sourcing new staff into our senior team to help us manage this growth effectively. Utilising their extensive social media networks Searchability have helped us secure high level candidates who not only fit the bill technically, but also share our values and beliefs, which we had highlighted to Dan as being imperative for us as we expanded. Searchability have played a pivotal role in partnering with us to ensure that we have technically strong candidates who have the skills, drive and personality to lead from the front.
For demanding companies that provide the interesting roles it’s especially tricky to track down that elusive combination of know-how and nouse. Companies need agencies that understand digital, tech and their market to provide introductions away from the glare of LinkedIn and job boards to facilitate a smooth transaction of quality resource into the more saleable and enviable strategic roles.
Searchability approached me about a potential new role earlier this year. From the outset they were very helpful, professional, and clear. They took me through everything I wanted to know in terms of the proposed company, role and all other questions I had initially, and went out of their way to make sure I was fully informed, and the role the right fit for me. Searchability helped me considerably in terms of preparation for both my initial telephone interview, and also my face-to-face interview, and made sure they were always around if I had any questions at all.
They are probably the most thorough and hardest working recruitment consultants I've met. Searchability really does put in the extra mile to make sure that, not only is the potential role is a good fit for both parties, but also that you are fully informed of everything related to the role/company and in a really good position to decide on any given role. They’re incredibly reliable, and very honest and trustworthy, and also incredibly nice people too.
I would without doubt recommend Searchability to both businesses looking to recruit and also prospective job hunters – they are excellent.
To compete in the new world of dynamic and disrupted digital markets organisations need to be able to attract current skills and operate at the speed of digital; they need to be able to attract the right resource to respond quickly and easily to changing market conditions, customer preferences or competitor activity.
As a close-knit technical business, hiring a senior member of staff is guaranteed to have a real impact. When Searchability are involved in recruiting at this level for Techdept we know that the impact will be a positive one! Their consultants have a knack of being able to root out people who fit into our team as though they have always been here. Combined with the strong technical backgrounds that candidates from Searchability have, we have found every placement to be a great success. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Searchability to any business looking to expand the strategic / management layer of their company and I plan on working closely with them as our company continues to evolve.
