Partnership between Roc Search & Raw Talent Academy sees Success


Roc SearchFor the first time on 16th May 2014, Reading based recruiters Roc Search enlisted Raw Talent Academy in aid of hiring the very top talent from around the local area. With Roc Search looking to expand their multi award-winning recruitment consultancy team and Raw Talent Academy – being backed by a proven track record of sourcing high calibre trainee sales people – the partnership was an exciting announcement.

Roc Search, a leading ICT and Engineering recruitment consultancy, have established a reputation for quality of service and the ability to deliver to both high volume and specific niche requirements. They are dedicated to providing a high quality service to both clients and candidates in the UK and Europe.

Raw Talent Academy’s unique process started with them carrying out a comprehensive profile of Roc Search to fully understand the type of candidates that not only succeed, but thrive at the company. Following the profiling, Raw Talent Academy sourced the top 20 candidates from the local area to attend the audition day held at the Madejski stadium in Reading.

In the run-up to the audition day Raw Talent Academy attracted over 400 candidates applications through numerous methods including mystery shopping and job fairs.

The audition day saw the invited candidates undertake a series of real life business tasks while being assessed by both Roc Search’s senior management team as well as Raw Talent Academy assessors. The audition day process, created by Raw Talent Academy Founder & BBC Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen, has been designed to showcase the candidates abilities so that clients can judge them based on what they can do and not what is on their CV.
