The building blocks

Building great teams is challenging. Our approach to startup recruitment focuses on understanding your unique needs and challenges. Here's some of the ways we can make the process easier for you.

Block 1

Talent strategy

Reviewing your plans and processes so you are setup for success. From employer branding to salary benchmarking to org chart planning, we’ll help you with best practice and insight.

Block 2

Diversity & inclusion

Hiring diversely needs deliberate actions. We'll help you with some obvious improvements or bring in D&I specialists to help you build a truly inclusive culture.

Block 3

Employer branding

Great talent won’t come to you without a strong employer brand. Across your website, job content, and social media we’ll review and recommend how you can maximise the impact of your story.

Block 4

Peer learning

None of us build great businesses alone. Podcasts, events, reports, and introductions - we’re passionate about offering opportunities to learn from other’s experiences.

Block 5

Candidate testing

We help shortlist so you don’t have to do all the work. We can bring in tools to check for values alignment, test technical expertise, or judge soft skills. 

Block 6

Branded advertising

Co-branded campaigns to tell your story in full. To the best talent in, not just on, the market. Our partnership plans include fully branded microsite options.

Block 7

Account management

We’ll embed a talent partner with you, who will find you the best talent while improving your organisation’s ability to hire. And when you need it, the rest of our team are here to help.

Block 8

Video interviews

If you want more than a CV, we can add asynchronous video content to help you make a better judgement on the candidates you want to meet.

Block 9

Priority talent access

Using your brand on our adverts, you'll attract great people, and more of them. You'll have priority access over the candidates that apply and have the advantage that candidates are already invested in your story.
Block 10

At-pace search

The breadth and depth of the ISL network gets great candidates at pace. We’re proactive and don’t wait for the talent to come to us – finding passive candidates not just those actively on the market.
