The Problem​

We have recruited a range of roles for Yorkshire Ambulance Trust, including a System, Online and Development Manager and a Database Software Developer Specialist. The challenges initially were a need for a rapid turnaround and access to specialists that they had been unable to obtain.

The Work

Our dedicated NHS team were able to mobilise quickly and work with the client to develop and approach which suited their recruitment style. Candidates were pre-vetted against essential requirements and priority was indicated for those with specific experience within the specialism. Using our powerful in house CRM we were able to translate the clients requirements into search criteria and quickly identify a long list of potential candidates. We then used a combination of Linked In messaging, emails and calls to make contact with those who matched the profile. At this stage our resourcing team undertake competency based interviews and technical testing to determine the most suitable applicant and a candidate summary was prepared for each in the hiring managers preferred medium – video, text or a call.

For this client they wanted a traditional 2 step hiring process but needed to fit this in within a short period of time so we created a bridged process whereby candidates were lined up for both stages at the outset – those candidates who were not progressed had a 2nd stage with our resourcing team who gave them feedback. This meant that we were able to progress things rapidly, without detriment to our candidates or client.

The Outcome

The testimonials we obtained from hiring managers at Yorkshire Ambulance are evidence of our successful partnership – including from Dave Bird who observed Evolution  “provided high quality candidates closely matching our requirements at short notice”.
