Helping clients recruit to develop exceptional teams

Red Tiger Talent support a wide range of clients in helping them recruit and develop exceptional analytics teams. Our recruiters all have a background in data, insight and analytics and offer unparalleled experience in their ability to understand your specific requirements and deliver quality, vetted candidates that meet your brief. Our recruiters have had many years’ experience in a hiring position for a number of other businesses.

Benefits of using Red Tiger Talent

We gain a deep understanding of the role

We spend time understanding the specific requirements of the role, the structure and function of the wider team as well as the culture of the team and wider organisation. Where appropriate, we can also utilise British Psychological Society (BPS) approved Psychometric tests to ensure new recruits have the necessary qualities to bring to your team and that these will complement the strengths of your existing team.

We cover the full spectrum of grade requirement

Our investment in talent starts early – from engaging with current undergraduates looking to get into an analytical career, to Senior Departmental Heads and Directors wishing to seek a fresh new challenge.

We favour quality over quantity

Wouldn’t it be great to only have to interview one or two candidates to find the ideal hire? This can be possible. We recognise that the hiring process is time consuming and so we will deliver a limited number of quality, vetted candidates to you. We are analysts at heart and monitor every assignment in relation to key metrics such as % of CVs to first interview and % to second interview.

We are owner managed

The founding directors are the lead recruiters and whoever you are engaged with will be leading the whole engagement and representing the opportunity.

We do have a research team who support us on the candidates search, but the directors are tasked with speaking to potential candidates.

We are prolific industry networkers

Our clear focus on analytics talent means that we are exceptionally placed to deliver quality candidates within a few weeks of engagement. Our recruiters are constantly speaking to existing contacts as well as extending our reach with new contacts in the analytics field. We have an exceptional handle on who is currently active in the market. This is why our candidate database is the best in the market.

We have a strong 'technical' radar

We recognise that generalist recruiters are not always able to ask probing questions around candidates’ technical understanding. With more than 50 years’ experience working as analysts and senior hiring managers in analytics functions for a range of client-side and consulting businesses we are able to ask the right questions of the candidates to identify those who are particularly suited to the role.

We have a flexible engagement model

We understand that different clients have a variety of internal resources and approaches to the recruitment process. Some wish to completely outsource the search to ourselves on a retained basis, others may wish to engage with us on a contingency fee basis. We are completely flexible and aim to integrate seamlessly with your existing processes as appropriate.

We provide a range of additional value-add services

We don’t just provide you with candidates, where required, we provide a range of other services to support your recruitment efforts, including:

  • Creation of the job specification.
  • Advice on the interview process.
  • Determining the most appropriate grade/salary for the role.
  • Bi-annual salary survey with which to benchmark your team
  • Coaching support to help with new starters or existing team members
  • Technical training to ensure your team have the best skills

We are incredibly proud of the clients we work with and particularly the long term, collaborative relationship we have with all of them. Here are a selection of some of our clients:

Recruitment is about finding the right competencies but also finding the right cultural fit and this is where Red Tiger Talent is excelling. After a thorough analysis of our skills and competencies requirements, Red Tiger Talent sent us a selection of the best candidates for us to interview. Thanks to this partnership we have recruited some amazing people.

Helping candidates succeed in their career

Red Tiger Talent is always keen to speak to existing and new candidates who are interested in progressing their career. Whether you are a current A level student or university undergraduate thinking about your first career move, through to an experienced leader who is looking for a final challenge before retirement we guarantee you will find value in speaking to us. We build a confidential and trusting environment and offer clear, impartial advice to help you in your next move.

Benefits of using Red Tiger Talent

We have been in your shoes

With over 50 years’ of experience in successful careers in location planning and consumer insight we have a wealth of knowledge that you can tap into.  We encourage open conversations with candidates – there is no such thing as a daft question and we won’t shy away from telling you if we disagree with something.  We thrive on helping people be more successful in their analytics careers and ensure the roles they take are the right roles for them. 

We have a very good handle on companies, departments, and roles

Our extensive network and industry experience means that we have a very good insight into different hiring companies, teams and individuals.  This is an added benefit when we are discussing your suitability to a role, team or manager – it is very hard to determine a cultural match and often we will be able to advise on the cultural fit.  When we don’t have any suitable live roles we will often tap into our network to facilitate an introduction into our contacts at pre-agreed potential hiring organisations. 

We are owner managed

The founding directors are the lead recruiters and whoever you are engaged with will be leading the whole engagement and representing the opportunity.

We do have a research team who support us on the candidates search, but the directors are tasked with speaking to potential candidates.

We thrive on meeting and helping people

We don’t just say this – our Psychometric profile tells us, that our key strengths are firmly in the relational quadrant. Our collective strengths are in collaboration, compassion, empathy,developing others, leading and relationship building.  Therefore, we love recruitment as it’s all about people and relationships. 

We are a trusted advisor with a vested interest in your career

How many times have you spent time speaking to a recruiter to never hear from them again? It is usually because they do not think you are suitable for the roles they are actively working on. At Red Tiger Talent we recognise that the time both sides invest in that initial ‘discovery’ phase (talk me through your CV, tell me about your skills, motivations, strengths, aspirations, salary expectations etc) is worthwhile regardless of whether we have a role to fill right now. We know that any advice we provide will stand us in good stead further down the line. We are in it for the long term. 

We provide a range of additional value-add services

We will also provide a range of other services to candidates (some would fall under Coaching), including: 

  • Review of your CV and LinkedIn profile.
  • Interview skills to ensure success.
  • Advice on other roles that you may be considering (including roles we aren’t working on).
  • General career coaching – supporting you with answering questions such as:

– I’m at a career crossroads where do I go next?

– How do I ensure my manager gets the best out of me?

– How can I ensure I pass my probation?

– How can I demonstrate that I can step up to the next level and get promoted?

We focus on developing long term relationships with our candidates

Our recruiters are not rewarded by quarterly commissions based on successful target placements. We are driven by doing what is right for our candidates and clients in the long term. The founders are the key recruitment professionals and it is our personal and professional reputation that is on the line.

How to Prepare for an Interview

Paul and Steve are a pleasure to work with. Both are extremely knowledgable about the sector, and are forthcoming and honest about the roles they bring forward. My recruitment into my new role was smooth and relatively stress-free! I would say this was primarily down to the excellent communication I received from Red Tiger throughout the process. Thanks guys!
