Whilst every company has the option to hire and promote from within, organisational culture often stops it happening successfully and consistently, resulting in ongoing employee churn and the never-ending external hiring cycle. But with the advent of the internal career centre, and a more consumerised approach to internal hiring, is it time to put control into the hands of the employee rather than the manager?

Most recruiters still use the CV as the recruitment document of choice when reviewing applications and creating their shortlist - how often do you still see "To apply, send us your CV and covering letter ..." on job ads? Apart from creating a huge amount of unnecessary work, the veracity of CVs is often questioned meaning that sifting CVs is the recruitment equivalent of building your house on sand. On top of that, CVs seldom provide the sort of information that recruiters need to make an informed decision about who to interview. We look at a proven alternative approach.

OC&C look for high levels of intellectual curiosity, strong analytical and creative abilities and in return offer early responsibility and as much progression as can be handled. The graduate recruitment market is very different to experienced hire recruitment and one challenge with graduate recruitment is that the window to attract and recruit the best graduate talent with the required skills is short and can be intense. Efforts must be focussed, co-ordinated and responsive. Prior to the last graduate recruitment round, OC&C made some fundamental changes to their online value proposition and the candidate experience – all aimed to make them more competitive in recruiting top talent.
Talent Attraction leaders say they usually lose diverse candidates early in the recruitment funnel - but they're not always clear why. Data from 1,000 candidates we surveyed and 25,000+ questions they asked prospective employers during the recruitment process, reveals how they make up their mind on whether an employer is serious about diversity (spoiler alert, stats & photos alone won't cut it):
Which specific diversity questions do they want answered? Where do they look for this information? Best, and not best, practices they’ve seen.
