What are Talent Pools?

A talent pool is typically defined as a database consisting of profiles of candidates who are actively interested in your organisation. If companies have to fill a vacancy, they can draw on the talent pool and look for a means of profile-matching appropriate applicants and job opportunities.

 In the RPO world they are a great tool for helping clients to recruit more efficiently.

Talent pools are usually created when:

  • There is a surplus of candidates that meet the requirements of the role.
  • Candidates apply for a role where although they may not be suitable for that role, they would be an ideal candidate for another.
  • Candidates apply for a role where they are slightly out of the area or have a mismatched salary requirement.
