Recruit Employees for Unique Roles? Yes, We Can

There are many jobs that are commonplace across different companies and industries, from administrative roles and financial professionals to marketing managers and more. There are also positions that are highly specialized, with some that may exist only in certain sectors. It’s that second category that sometimes prompts this observation from a business: “You couldn’t help us recruit employees. Our roles are too complex for an outsider to understand.”

How do we respond? We know not all positions are created equal; that some represent unique roles in niche industries. At the same time, just as a company is an expert in its field, a good recruiting firm is an expert at what it does – and that means we can be effective even when tasked with recruiting candidates for challenging positions. 

How we fill niche positions

No matter the position we’re seeking to fill, the company we’re working with, or the industry they fall in, the process at Alaant Workforce Solutions follows a tried-and-true approach. The key is to start by learning as much as possible about an organization, its culture, and the roles of its employees. 

That process typically involves lots of questions, as we seek to gather information directly from the company on who they are, what they do, and the types of employees they need to be productive. Are there certain skill sets that translate well? Are there soft skills that differentiate the best employees? What attributes resonate strongly with the organization’s culture? And, when it comes to identifying and attracting candidates for specialized roles, what type of background, experience, certifications, and other qualifications are most important? As we collect the answers to these and other questions, we begin to build profiles of candidates with the best opportunity for success.

A successful track record is important

With all of this information at our disposal, we then tap into the work we’ve done over the past two decades in recruiting for multiple positions and fields. We translate that experience into this job search, applying the lessons we’ve learned on filling specialized roles into the current situation. Now, armed with insights on the company and the role, and backed by demonstrated experience and expertise, we’re ready to hit the ground running. 

Importantly, we stand on a proven record of delivering great candidates to our clients. We’ve assisted hundreds of companies in filling thousands of jobs, and they include a wide variety of roles in companies large and small, in industries well-known and unique. It’s difficult to find a position we haven’t recruited for, and if not that job specifically, one that bears a strong similarity where we’ve had success in hiring top talent. 

As experts in recruiting, our mission is to take that burden off your organization so you can focus on what you do best – knowing you have the right team in place to reach your goals. Interested in learning more? Contact us today and let’s get the conversation started!
