The Talent you need to Lead the Change to Smart Connected Business

As a successful leader within technology and telecoms, you have built and developed teams that have fallen into traditional tech skill sets and org structures. But with the revolution a digital, smart, connected business world requires, you will be at the forefront of the largest transformation and convergence of technical professionals this century will see.

The challenge of attracting and retaining the rare, in-demand talent is immense, but we have developed our permanent recruitment services and teams to support you with the talent, advice and logistics you need to manage this dramatic change.

From Vacancy to Productivity

Behind every permanent vacancy, lies the potential of exceptional talent that adds value to your team, but also the risk of failed hires leads to team and project disruption – a scenario that is amplified with the new hybrid teams required to build a smart connected business.

We guarantee that your new permanent professionals not only match the job brief, the culture fit and delivered smoothly, but we also ensure the new team member adds continual value.

Our whole operation – including data, systems, consultants, compliance & logistics – has been designed to strip out time and risk from the recruitment and on-boarding process. Our methodology will reduce the duration of your perm hires by, on average, 20%; the number of hours managers spend recruiting by 15%, and 98% of our candidates pass probation – success measured as new hires passing probation. 

Also, passing probation is a sign of good but not concrete proof of a great hire, so we go further by ensuring your hire is engaged in their first crucial six months. Through our Bond TM practice, we work with line managers, HR and the new hire through our engagement portal to ensure each new hire is happy and productive anywhere in the world.

Whether you are looking for that one key hire to transform your business or require scores of new employees for a new HQ, Tangent have the capabilities to deliver.

How it Works: The Tangent Recruitment Experience

You know the recruitment process can be time-consuming and frustrating even at the best of times, but in a tight labour market,

it can be very painful indeed. That’s why Tangent has designed a service that not only guarantees the result you want; it’s also a great customer experience from the beginning through to aftercare support.

In fact, we believe the best result is only possible if the recruitment journey is perfect for the candidates and you. Because only when we’ve built trust with you through consistent delivery of our promises, can the best fit between talent and your company take place.

To deliver the ultimate recruitment experience, we are continually refining the three core pillars of our service for one clear outcome: you have a happy and productive colleague. The three components of our service in detail:

  1. You will be allocated an experienced consultant for the duration of the hire; the consultant is supported by account managers and a logistics team. Our consultants are chosen for their communication skills, ability to stay positive regardless of the challenges, and their ability to focus on delivery.
  2. Now, great people only get you so far, so we ensure our whole business has a culture of service and learning. Our values are a reflection of our commitment to service, and they are embedded into our DNA, read more on our values.
  3. And finally, a comprehensive and flexible recruitment model, supported by innovative technology. We harness a powerful suite of technology globally to streamline the recruitment process, from an integrated Salesforce CRM – with a client portal area, view demo here – through to Snapfile candidate video profiles.

Although our delivery model has been engineered to be effective and efficient, it is also flexible. For example, if you need an employer branding campaign and assessment days across multiple locations adhering to strict diversity rules, we will fine-tune the steps to match your needs across our teams.

Outcomes: The benefit of the three pillars of our service: reduced management time; increased team productivity; and a stress-free and enjoyable recruitment journey. Further evidence of our permanent assignments can be acquired through our case studies; these range from global team assignments through to board-level tech roles - one where the talent were as rare as unicorns.
