Human resources agency StreetHR announced the launch today of a disruptive recruitment portal that allows highly qualified candidates to showcase their skills anonymously so hiring managers can find the best possible talent in a whole new way.
These candidates, StreetHR’s Headliners, are established, professionals who have been rigorously vetted by StreetHR. Because the recruitment portal ensures complete anonymity, they’re free to seek opportunities on the Headliners’ platform, without risking their current jobs. Instead of the typical name and photo, more pertinent information like salary expectations and specialised skills are on display.
Once hiring managers express interest in a Headliner, StreetHR Talent Acquisition Specialists contact the candidate directly to assess their interest in the opportunity and obtain consent to share their personal details. Hiring managers can rest easy with vetted candidates who are transparent about their salary expectations, in addition to a three-month satisfaction guarantee from StreetHR.
Director of StreetHR Joseph Farrugia explains, “we need to look at recruitment in a totally different way. Instead of the best talent looking for opportunities, we need to create great opportunities and present them to the top talent.”
Many top professionals are employed at jobs with limited opportunities for growth. They are open to new horizons, but cannot change their status on LinkedIn to “open to work” without risking negative repercussions. The Headliners portal matches such individuals with companies that have great workplace cultures and offer fulfilling careers. With one application, Headliners come into contact with an array of unique opportunities, including ones that are not yet public. Meanwhile, Hiring Managers can find great talent right off the bat without rigorous shortlisting processes.
An innovative concept—there’s nothing currently like it on the market. It also reflects the reality of today’s employee driven market and sets the scene for how recruitment should be done going forward. While the platform initially focuses on Maltese jobs, StreetHR accepts applications from anywhere in the EU.
