An Introduction to Candidate Source

Exactly what do we do?

Welcome to Candidate Source. We work as trusted 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

Facts & Figures

Q&A: Why should I choose Candidate Source?

Q. I have a vacancy I’m struggling to fill, I’ve used all my normal resources and I’m on a tight advertising budget


You need our Emergency Candidate Boost! We will take your vacancy spec and write adverts that will be found by the candidates that you need. We will advertise across a range of leading job boards, social media sites and aggregators, all for an unbeatable price!

Q. I’ve recently started my recruitment agency, I’m unsure what job boards to use and need help with the admin so I can concentrate on making placements


Our Emergency Candidate Boost is an ad hoc service, where we create an advert to be found by the candidates you need, and advertise it across a range of leading job boards, social media sites and aggregators. We will also filter the response for you saving you time!

Q. We are not receiving the right candidates from the adverts we are posting?


Our Consultant Training gives you valuable tips and techniques, whether you are an experienced recruiter or a new consultant.  If you write adverts as part of your job then this course will give you everything you need to achieve your objective of finding good quality candidates to not only fill your role, but also give you additional quality candidates for your database.

Q. We want to offer our client an enhanced advertising service


Your client’s brand is very important to them, and using our Client Branding package will help strengthen the relationship between you and your client. A client branded advert speaks a thousand words and immediately transports the candidate to a different place, helping to also increase the application response.

Q. We have multiple branches and are looking structure the buying of our job boards

You will receive one invoice a month which combines all your online spend and will benefit from ongoing evaluation and management of job board performance together with management information to inform and underpin future buying decisions.

What our customers say...

We have built a strong relationship with the team at Candidate Source since using the branded advertising service, tapping into their specialist candidate attraction knowledge.  Since using this service we are now able to enhance our existing recruitment advertising strategy and get our brand in front of more candidates.

I worked with Laura when I needed additional coverage for key positions, and particularly when leading a large, multi-faceted national campaign for a client. Not only was the coverage and candidate attraction everything I had hoped for, Laura was on hand every step of the way. The team provided the listing service and also gave advice on ad wording and geographic placement areas to maximise candidate attraction and worked with us to manage an effective response process when the applications started flooding in. Laura is knowledgeable and always extremely responsive, on hand with an answer very quickly and I highly recommend her services.

Michele Ridland

We have been employing Candidate Source for ad hoc advertisement services since 2011 and we have been consistently impressed with the level of service and professionalism we have received from them. As a small, technology-focused recruitment agency, we need to be able to reach as many candidates as possible without the expenditure of signing up with the numerous job boards available. CSL’s ad hoc advertising service has proved to be an extremely cost-effective channel for us, and our return on investment has been excellent. All of CSL’s staff – especially Alex Tate who we have worked closest with – have always been extremely helpful, and their expertise in ad’ creation and market knowledge has ensured our advertising presence across the web has remained well-qualified and professional. We have absolutely no reservations in recommending Candidate Source, and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
