Quarsh took up the challenge and adapted well to the fluid changes made by the client as the project developed. We made some small changes to the job description and worked with ComXo to ensure the recruitment and onboarding process was robust, with improved retention at the forefront. Quarsh supported ComXo in consistent messaging across all advertising and initial calls with applicants. We also provided assistance in ensuring job adverts were attention-grabbing and the entire recruitment process was transparent to all applicants to reduce candidate drop off.
We secured 10 hires for ComXo in 3 months; the in-house recruiter required and 8 Virtual PAs. The hiring sources utilised include referrals, Indeed and direct approaches. These 10 hires were chosen from a huge pool of candidates - over 2000 applications were received - and increased the headcount at the company by 10%. The time to hire across these roles was 25 days. We are delighted to say that a year on, 90% of our placed candidates are still in the business.
