A Nation Wide Talent Pool - Better, Faster, Cheaper
Clothing retail sector has a very high turnover rate. Colin's needed a constant flow of high quality candidates to ensure the operational effectiveness of its more than 800 stores. However, in a very crowded talent marketplace, with many retailers pursuing the same agenda, it was difficult to attract the right talent and provide a quick, fast application process. Traditional job boards were inadequate in providing the kind of differentiating branding required to attract the high quality talent. Colin’s needed an additional channel to reach passive candidates and provide opportunities to brand itself to the new talent.
