How To Hire a Top Sourcer

Interviewing a sourcer ain’t easy. When looking at hiring one those who are gifted in their trade, it’s important that you know exactly what you’re looking for. Some have certain traits and abilities that allow them to stand out way above the test. Liz Bronson looked at four key areas around hiring a sourcer, highlighting how important it was to hire someone that complements your kills.

1. Candidate must have a similar mindset about recruiting: It’s important that you and the sourcer feel the same about recruiting, especially if you’re looking for a long-term replacement.

2. Flawless writing skills: One big pet hate for people is reading job advertisements and seeing them littered with typos. You want your brand to be represented by professionals that can write an engaging job spec whilst also maintaining your high standards.

3. Quality over quantity mindset: Someone that doesn’t just reply to candidates with the same automated reply. They take time to reach out to each individual person, tailoring their response.

4. They’re not afraid to ask for help: Someone that isn’t afraid to approach you to ask for help when they need it. The longer someone goes without asking, the bigger the problem gets.

SO, after you’ve defined your own hiring standards, Bronson then sets about asking relevant interview questions. These question, are more only relevant but they will allow you to get the necessary information from the candidate with regards to their experience and knowledge. Ask questions such as ‘What are your favourite sourcing tools’ or ‘What are your expectations for this role’ will give you insight into what the candidate wants from you.
