Allen Engage

Cut out the first half of your recruitment by starting with a curated shortlist of the most elite talent available

Finding and engaging the best available candidates takes time and resources.

Instead of you spending hours searching through CVs, our AI-powered search engine, automated engagement tools and elite recruiters can do all the work and leave you with a curated shortlist of candidates ready for interview.

Recruitment can be a slow process, with some industries taking up to 46 days (on average) to place a new hire. The first phase – searching for candidates and whittling them down to a shortlist – is the most time-consuming. Allen Engage can cut it out entirely for you, providing you with a curated shortlist of elite talent, taken from across the globe, who are interested in talking to you about your company and your role. Our AI-powered search engine looks at 45 global digital sources to find all the candidates who best fit your company, our automated engagement software markets your role to this talent, then our expert recruiters pare them down to a shortlist of only the most relevant options.

Allen Engage takes care of your recruitment needs right up to the interview stage

Let’s chat

We start by talking with you to make sure we understand every aspect of the role you’re looking to fill. We’ll delve into everything from skills and experience to the salary you’re willing to pay and how soon you’d like a hire to start, to make sure we cover your exact requirements. We even look at your company culture to ensure we recommend candidates who will fit in well with your business.

We’ll do all the work

Using our AI-driven search function, we’ll go through every available candidate across all available digital sources – even if they aren’t actively searching for a job – to create a longlist of talent for you. Our search covers international digital data sources, searching across borders and without bias to find any candidates that meet your needs. Our expert search specialists, automated engagement software and role marketing software can do this quickly, cutting down on your time to hire while searching through a much larger talent pool than you’re used to.

You get the best talent

From there, we’ll use the information you gave us and our thorough understanding of your needs to whittle our longlist down to a shortlist. You’ll be left with a curated group of suitable candidates, who are interested in your role, any of which would make an excellent addition to your business, ready for interview.

Build on our Mapping and Identify services

With Allen Engage, you also gain access to our Mapping and Identify offerings. We use these to fully understand your talent pool in order to create your curated shortlist. Allen Mapping lets us discover the contents of your talent pool, trawling through 45 digital data sources to unearth all the viable candidates for your role and assess whether or not to tweak your requirements for better results. Identify then lets us create a longlist based on your requirements, which we can then curate for our Engage service.

Who we are

At Allen Consulting, we pride ourselves on approaching recruitment in an innovative and unique way. We realised that the standard model of recruiting wasn’t working for clients, and the problems that had been part of our sector for decades weren’t going away. So we decided to change the way we looked at hiring altogether.

That meant focusing on technology, especially machine learning, boolean searches and automation. The result is a system that is more efficient and effective at finding talent than anything else we’ve seen, and it frees our talented recruiters up to spend more time with our candidates and clients. That means we can afford to dedicate time to truly understanding your recruitment needs, and makes it much more likely that we’ll find the right candidate for you.

We’re not the only ones who think our system works; we’ve been able to find top talent for 5 of the top 10 tech companies and 5 of the top 20 financial services companies globally.
