SVMP STAFFING AND RECRUITING SERVICES
ValueOptim specializes in finding hard-to-find Sourcing, Vendor Management, and Sourcing (SVMP) talent and deploys extensive screening, testing, and interviewing skills to find the right match.
Locating talented and high caliber Sourcing, Vendor Management and Procurement (SVMP) personnel to meet your needs is a challenge we at ValueOptim will undertake on your behalf with the utmost professional standards. We have demonstrated flexibility and competence in the delivery of SVMP leaders and technical resources. We are committed to working with you to build and deploy a strategy best suited for each individual company.
Our recruiters can intelligently converse with SVMP professionals to gauge their depth of leadership, functional, and technology skills. We also make sure that candidates have a good understanding of industry competencies and will fit with your company culture when we recommend them.
We have a strong network of SVMP practitioners whose profiles we continuously screen and store in our database. Our automation tools are state of the art and enable us to provide excellent service levels, consistently. We work with creativity and ingenuity to solve problems. We chose always to take the “high road”: it is best to do the right thing, to be generous, to take the long-term view of things.
Once a job description and responsibilities of the position have been outlined, we begin searching our extensive database of recent candidates. We also remain in touch with non-active job-seekers, a majority of whom are not actively pursuing a career change and are not on the radar, but request they are kept abreast of potential opportunities in the market and in their field. These are the diamonds in the rough we have maintained contact with over the years that are open to selective new opportunities. Our non-traditional search models help reveal hidden talent, allowing our clients to grow the team they need
We think strategically to identify the hidden talent our client’s need
We engage and assess these well-qualified individuals with expertise, passion, and tenacity.
We unearth hidden talent and deliver top-tier candidates who are interested in the role and will be a long-term fit.
Our business model of Purpose-Driven Recruitment works in a very differentiated manner. At ValueOptim, we operate differently than other staffing and recruiting firms you may have spoken with in the past – and our focus is on finding the right alignment for the candidate and client alike.
Every role we hire goes through a very thoughtful creation of a hiring and evaluation strategy. Once details of the position have been explained to the candidate and their career objectives have been covered, our experienced recruiting team assesses potential candidates initially through phone interviews by asking questions and gathering information.
As the candidate progresses through the process, they are invited for an in-person interview via Video Conferencing. Depending on the role requirement, we evaluate the candidates based on basic fit, role requirements, psychometric testing, language testing, real-work testing, reference checks, and rigorous interviews. Once the candidates have cleared all the steps in our hiring method they are presented to the client for final interviews.
If the candidate profile and your expectations match, we connect you with them for further qualification. A detailed background analysis review of the candidate is provided with each submission, which allows you to make an educated assessment on which candidates to move forward with.
Additional information may be provided depending on the nature of the position such as criminal record search, drug testing, educational verification, and as well as any of your own testing procedures such as personality assessments you may wish to incorporate into the process.
