Established in 2003, Optimum Recruitment presents gender balanced and inclusive shortlists in STEM. It is recognised that some individuals are reluctant to apply for certain roles and often do not present the best version of themselves at an interview. In our experience, this can happen at entry level through to more senior positions. We have found we can identify strong talent by using a high touch, search engagement model. We map talent and engage on behalf of our clients regarding current and future opportunities.
The talent is there, it just needs to be approached differently and you need to be active across a number of professional communities and networks.
