Our Search & Selection Process…

Here at The Advocate Group we undertake a highly strategic 360ᵒ recruitment process that ensures we’re identifying, engaging and on-boarding the right match talent for your business today, and proactively for tomorrow.

Our detailed and thorough process incorporates the following Search and Selection techniques.

Passive Candidate Attraction

We’ve always operated on the approach that the best talent lies within the market, not on the market. Comprising a team of researchers, resourcers, recruiters and head-hunters we work strategically to identify, nurture and deliver the very best candidates from your talent pool. We know what motivates our candidates, why they aren’t actively looking and what opportunities would change their outlook.

Talent Pooling 

We don’t just focus on the talent you need today, we’re already pooling the talent you’ll need tomorrow. By effectively understanding your growth ambitions, and strategically mapping your market, we develop and maintain talent pools to manage the unexpected and drive continued growth for the future.

Market Mapping

We undertake extensive market mapping on behalf of our client partners to effectively identify the range and scope of your talent landscape. Whether you are looking to expand to new markets or strategically grow within current markets, our in-depth market intelligence can incorporate skill shortage statistics, competitor breakdown, geographical insight, top performer profiling and salary benchmarking


We take a highly strategic approach to all headhunting projects. Operating discretely and directly we’re able to make targeted approaches to industry relevant specialists who are not available on the open market.


Benchmarking plays a crucial role in identifying the essential attributes of your ideal candidates, whilst eliminating common biases that can stand in the way of making the right hiring decision.

Video Profiling

 From video introductions to short Q&A’s our video profiling capability enables you to view candidates remotely to streamline the recruitment process, whilst also providing a key indication as to the level of commitment and motivation that potential candidates have for the role.

Competency Testing

Our process incorporates competency testing prior to interview, enabling us to pre-qualify candidates against technical and pertinent skills and attributes essential for the role.
