Consortia experiment with ‘Raw Talent’
In January 2015 specialist IT and digital recruitment agency Consortia requested the help of Raw Talent Academy to have a influx of raw talented and career driven individuals. This partnership consisted of Raw Talent Academy inviting a number of enthusiastic candidates to one of their unique audition days. This resulted in Consortia offering a position to a number of candidates on the audition day! The partnership has seen IT and digital recruitment agency Consortia and Training specialists Raw Talent Academy help source a number of talented individuals for their Bristol office.
The audition day, held on the 18th February 2015 at The Bristol Hotel, allowed Consortia’s senior management team to assess a number of candidates invited to the day after going through Raw Talent Academy’s application process. Just the top 25 candidates were invited to the day after hundreds of job seekers had applied. The 25 were split into teams before undertaking recruitment and sales tasks that allowed them to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. After completing the tasks some candidates were sent home before the remaining candidates were interviewed individually.
The candidates experienced Raw Talent Academy’s innovative process that ensures they are hired based on showcasing their ability as opposed to their CV or educational background. Prior to being invited to the audition day the candidates went through a lengthy process including an online application, telephone and face to face interview as well as FacePitch.
