Geometric Services & Specialties

Recruitment Services

The Geometric partnership has deep subject knowledge delivering in all areas of resourcing. Our approach allows you to access genuine expertise for a range of service areas. In these areas, the combined experience of our subject matter experts means you can rely on Geometric’s advice, guidance and delivery capability. Where you need solutions, Geometric has the ability to deliver.

The most effective attraction strategies are built on an in-depth understanding of the audience and how they prefer to engage, and the context of the communication.

That’s why a crucial part of our approach is detailed research. We use it to create a range of personas that help us communicate multiple layers of information. Not only in job adverts and other attraction materials, but also through our clients’ careers sites, social media, Pay Per Click and programmatic advertising, candidate communication and employee referral programmes. We embrace a blend of paid, low cost and no cost media to target both passive and active job seekers – making sure that response and engagement are tracked for each channel.

Through positively transforming the way our clients think about and approach candidate attraction and selection, we have established ourselves as the go to place for a meaningful partnership in international e-recruitment.

Our aim to be the leading partner in talent solutions is underpinned by talent insight and strategy teams who create innovative plans, focusing on the best channels to source targeted candidates. The methods we incorporate include building brand awareness, website design, social community management, proactive sourcing and targeted marketing, right through to conversion. Which is all supported by our market leading technology CRM and ATS capability, with the added specialist knowledge and expertise to be able to manipulate and tailor these technology systems to our clients specific needs and requirements.

We provide solutions specifically for you, that exploit the power of technology; combined with positive human intervention, to deliver a highly targeted and measurable return on investment.

Tactics include:

  • Passive talent sourcing
  • Social community management
  • Paid for social
  • Native advertising
  • Google Ad Words
  • Programmatic advertising
  • PR & editorial
  • Radio
  • Job boards
  • Job aggregators
  • Community outreach
  • Events and sponsorship

We handle all aspects of the recruitment process from sourcing passive candidates through to selecting and on-boarding a broad range of talent.

To master the complexity of recruitment, we master data. We base our decisions on rigorous insight and analyse data using metrics that actually mean something: whether qualitative things like how engaging an assessment centre is, or the hard measures around cost savings.

Collectively Geometric deal with thousands of candidates on behalf of our clients. Our activities range from basic killer questions through to online Situational Judgement Tests, Realistic Job Previews, telephone and video interviews, online tests and booking candidates into Assessment Centres.

Enriching the candidate experience is at the heart of everything we do. Treating candidates as customers, we continually look to enhance the brand experience and measure our impact using candidate satisfaction questionnaires and Net Promoter Score data.

In a highly competitive recruitment market, where candidates are applying to multiple organisations, it’s increasingly crucial to provide a seamless candidate journey, where every detail is taken care of promptly and professionally.

Any problems or delays in the offer and on-boarding process can mean that candidates drop out and pursue other opportunities. This is why we treat our clients’ offer and on-boarding processes – and their candidates – with the respect they deserve.

Talent Consulting Services

Without the right talent, organized in the right way, focused on the right goals, businesses cannot deliver on their promise to stakeholders – a fact leaders increasingly recognize.  But this understanding comes just as developing global markets and changing demographics intensify competition for the best people.

The Geometric partnership has deep subject knowledge in this space. Where you need solutions, Geometric has the ability to deliver.

Workforce Planning is a continual process used to align the needs and priorities of an organisation with those of its workforce. Generating an inclusivity of language, values and actions around the employment experience, employer branding is key to this process.

Crystallising and articulating the employee experience creates a genuine point of difference for an organisation, and is increasingly a game changer. Investment in employer branding also brings tangible benefits in terms of recruitment, retention, engagement, advocacy, organisational alignment and belonging.

Our employer branding work has seen us working domestically and internationally within both public and private sectors, for organisations as varied as Santander, Barratt Developments, Virgin Media, Unilever, Network Rail, Telefonica, Heineken, HSBC and E.ON.

The evolution of the employer brand (EVP – Employer Value Proposition) continues. If, in the past, employer branding’s focus was perhaps around finessing recruitment communications, today’s construct is far more fundamental, far more value adding and far more likely to generate significant organisational headway. Your employer brand and its compass, the employee value proposition, is the platform through which great organisations communicate employment awareness, aspiration, engagement and advocacy.

We can get to the heart of this, basing solutions on insight and knowledge rather than guesswork and intuition.

We provide the fresh thinking and deep insight to help you make better informed business decisions. We specialize in conducting quantitative and qualitative market research among staff, leadership, talent community, consumers and their influencers (ie, thought leaders, executives).

Areas of Expertise

We deliver brand led, cost effective, end to end solutions in the following areas.

This dedicated team of professionals is highly experienced in planning and executing school leaver, apprentice and graduate campaigns. They provide strategic consultancy and deliver end-to-end solutions comprising attraction, sourcing and candidate management solutions – all built around the employer brand – to engage high quality candidates. Emerging Talent attraction solutions include everything from print advertising and basic online banners through to rich media, social media, on-campus marketing and social activations. Benchmarked data helps clients plan and measure campaigns on a global basis.

Our dedicated Specialist teams use a range of sourcing methods to identify and target suitable candidates – both those actively searching for a new job and those who may be open to new possibilities. We use a ‘client branded’ approach to present job opportunities to them, along with an understanding of our client’s business and internal culture. We then take interested applicants through a full and robust interview based on the role criteria that you provide, embracing your employer brand and promoting your values throughout the entire process.

Outsourcing your volume recruitment projects to our specialist teams does more than lessen the load for your HR department. It also gives you access to the latest ATS and other recruitment technology. Through CV sifting to interviews, assessment centres and reference checks – whether you’re looking for 20, 200 or 2,000 new colleagues, we can help you hire the right people. We also provide accurate time to hire and cost per hire metrics on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis, and real time access to all candidate data. And, because we ensure that every aspect of the resourcing process is closely aligned to your employer brand, we can help you enhance the candidate experience.

Occasionally, organisations may only have a short-term, 3-6 month, need for support with some or all of their resourcing processes. Whatever their requirements for a particular project, we provide the range of RPO services that best meet their needs. Our heritage as a communications business with expertise in employer branding and attraction is our key differentiator, and forms the cornerstone of our approach in a market dominated by staffing competitors. With an approach based on ‘detailed intervention’ and a doctrine of marginal gains, we believe that incremental improvements in every facet of an RPO service will deliver significant overall impact to our clients’ projects.
