At AMTRA, we work with organizations to implement strategies that improve the quality of new hires, streamline the acquisition of talent and contain costs.
1. Understanding the customer
We invest the time to understand the client’s business, their IT environment and the objectives they are looking to accomplish. Our goal is to treat each client individually and truly understand the outcomes they are striving to accomplish. Alongside these outcomes each client has a unique culture, and it is imperative that the IT resources being onboarded are aligned to this culture. In essence the more we understand about the client the better we are equipped to align the right resources and save valuable time from requisition to onboarding.
2. Quality requirement
By taking the time to clearly understanding what the client’s specific needs are for the respective position, the skillset required, responsibilities of the role and cultural fit we are able to source the right resource the first time. The time invested up front defining the requirements of the role saves significant time on the backend in reviewing resumes, interviewing the wrong candidates and go back and forth flushing out additional details. Knowing the client’s timeline to hire and interview process establishes our recruiting timeline to meet your needs.
3. Sourcing top talent
Our approach to securing top talent is to leverage our vast network of IT professionals. Our tenured team of recruiters consistently network to identify the best talent available. “Good people know good people”, therefore our approach is to always start with the proven talent that we know. From there we branch out with a referral-based approach targeting available talent as well as passive job seekers.
4. Quality candidate validation & screening
Identifying and connecting with IT talent is the initial stage in securing the right individual for a role, but the most crucial step within the recruitment process is the validation of the individuals technical and cultural fit. We conduct the initial screening of the candidates resume to determine their technical skill set, core projects supported, companies where they have worked, career progression and stability. The next step is a detailed phone / video conference interview assessing the candidates core technical skills, clearly understanding where they have worked and their responsibilities / deliverables, cultural fit and their career ambitions. These attributes are matched against the client’s requirements and relevant references are completed to provide an external perspective of the candidate’s skills and fit.
5. Profile presentation
Candidate profiles including the resume, references and skills summary highlighting the IT professionals fit for the role are provided to the client.
6. Interview / onboard
Interviews are coordinated with a clear understanding of preparation required and what to expect from the client and candidate. Once the interview process is complete and an offer is accepted, we work with both the client and candidate to facilitate a smooth onboarding process.
7. Relationship management
Once a candidate is placed, we are invested in the success of the individual and client deliverables are met. Consistent communication from day 1 with the consultant and client ensures the highest levels of satisfaction by both parties. Consistent communication on performance and expectations is a key to successful retention and delivery.
