3 reasons to partner with The Advocate Group for top FMCG NAM talent
If you’re looking for a recruitment partner that can ensure the success of your next hiring project, here’s why our team here at The Advocate Group is the right choice.
1. Unmatched industry knowledge
After more than 10 years of recruiting exclusively in the consumer product sector, we know the space inside out. That means we never have to start any search from scratch.
The only people we talk to, day in and day out, are consumer product professionals. As a result, we have a vast pool of relevant connections across the country and beyond. This includes exceptional National Account Management professionals that are not active on the market, but who are passively open to great opportunities.
And, because we understand this market so well, we also have an in-depth understanding of both the skills and aptitude needed for success in National Account Management.
2. Brand advocate representation
We’re your brand advocates.
Our people are our main resource. All highly trained, extremely collaborative, and well networked, our talent team work closely with you to understand your unique needs from the start.
We also have the resources, knowledge, and understanding required to position you effectively in your market.
Take the FMCG and wider consumer product market. It’s known for being highly competitive, but the reality is that the talent is out there! You just have to know how to position your organisation to maximise attraction. In other words, strategic positioning is critical to attracting the right professionals. That’s where we come in.
Our resources include an extensive CRM containing nothing but top consumer product talent, market-leading talent mapping technology and, of course, Advocate 360.
What is Advocate 360?
Advocate 360 is our in-house digital shortlisting platform. What this gives you is more information on the candidate than you’ve ever seen before, all while giving them the power to present themselves how they wish to be positioned and represented.
You’ll have the option of seeing:
- Supporting video introductions.
- Answers to pre-agreed competency questions.
- Cultural compatibility analysis.
- Interesting key facts.
What else do we offer?
In addition, in support of our detailed search and selection process, we have an outstanding team of digital creatives, comprising of copywriters, graphic designers, and videographers.
Working closely in collaboration with you and our consultants, they can bring your campaigns to life through attention-grabbing advertising campaigns and social media marketing – check out what they can do over on The Advocate Group LinkedIn.
Reach out today to find out more about what we can offer.
3. Success rate
We are very MI-focused, and big believers in efficiency improvement at every stage. We record a number of key stats, but here are some our Talent Partners are particularly proud of:
- 3:1 interview-to-placement ratio: For every three candidates we have out on interview, one is getting the job.
- 96% employee retention: Our retention rate is market leading – 96% of the people we place are still with that organisation 12 months later.
- 92% right-first-time candidate shortlists: Of the placements we make in roles that we work exclusively (which is the vast majority), 92% are hired from our first shortlist.
- 28-day average time to hire: From briefing to the point of offer, our turnaround time on average is just 28 days.
Don’t just take our word for it, though. For a more in-depth insight, check out our specific NAM recruitment case study below…
