Primeast has been hosting the Yorkshire Talent Forum since 2007. At each forum, a "people leader" takes to the "hot seat" to describe their recent successes and ongoing challenge in the field of talent management. They receive powerful questions and observations from other participants that move them to a place of action.
At our May 2012 Talent Forum we are pleased to welcome Nick Middleton from Head Resourcing, a successful recruitment consultancy with particular specialism in IT and business change recruitment.
Day to day Nick sees that the vast majority of recruitment decisions are still based on the past experience of a candidate (it usually boils down to whether they have specifically fulfilled the same role within a competitor’s organisation). With the pressure of a highly competitive market he finds that recruitment consultancies are often conforming to their client’s ‘pigeon holing’ ways! Nick’s aim is to break this mould and apply more of a strengths based philosophy. The steps to adopting this model are not clear, particularly for specialist roles common within IT, but he hopes he can call upon the expertise in the room to help guide him on this journey.
As ever the forum will nudge Nick to the action he needs to take in order to bring this significant added value to his clients.
