An Introduction to Candidate Source

Exactly what do we do?

Welcome to Candidate Source. We work as partners to recruiters in order to help fill your vacancies. In a nutshell, we allow you to fill your vacancies with better candidates in less time.

But how?

Our primary service is to take the weight off your shoulders by directly dealing with the vacancies you’re struggling to fill. Not just the difficult jobs, but when you have too many vacancies than you have time for.

That means we:
  1. Take the vacancies off your hands
  2. Create bespoke job adverts to attract you the best candidates
  3. Advise you on the most relevant job boards for your vacancies
  4. Post your adverts
  5. Receive and filter all responses
  6. Pass on only the best candidates to you!

Therefore, you can fill more vacancies with better quality candidates in less time.

We are new to CSL and have been flabbergasted at the increased business we have achieved since utilising their contacts

What our customers say...

We have been dealing with Michelle and her team at Candidate Source since September and love how flexible our advertising can be with them.  Being a generalist Recruitment Consultancy often means we need to advertise over a diverse range of job boards.  Gone are the days of trawling through the stats to see who is best at what.  We just call Candidate Source ask for their recommendation and place the ads in the relevant places.  It not only ensures a more relevant response, it saves us money!

Maxine Hart
Wote Street People

We asked Candidate Source to advertise a telesales role on the Emergency Candidate Boost service, unknown to us this also included Indeed which they are currently trialling.  We received from Indeed 10 applications, only one of which was already known to us.  Of the remaining 9 we put 2 forward for interview and added another 3 to our database.  We were really impressed with Indeed and are now waiting for Candidate Source to offer this as a regular part of their service.

Candidate Source is a great way of widening your advertising net in a cost effective way and was both easy and quick to set up. The Solutions Architect role we advertised with yourselves has one candidate at interview stage – someone who applied through CV library.
