“Arval operate in a highly competitive market, as such the quality of talent is of paramount importance to us.  We recognised that we needed a partner who could demonstrate thought leadership and build a new, energetic and best practice recruitment model, Cogito were the obvious choice.  We are delighted to have worked with a partner who puts our needs first and who have helped to transform our recruitment into something we can be proud of.”  

Ailsa Firth, HR Director – Arval

 

“Operating in a highly competitive market and as a business placing high emphasis on recruiting individuals against our values, it is vital that we work with a partner who understands our organisation, our people and our future.  Cogito completely get it; their research and mapping solutions have enabled us to engage with talent we would not normally attract through our traditional recruitment methods and suppliers.

As a partner they have offered consultative advice to help us shape roles and propositions to ensure that we are able to attract the best and helping us to achieve our goals of reducing recruitment agency and headhunt spend, and increasing the overall capability of the people in our organisation to achieve our strategy.

Marc and his team have been great support at all levels of our organisation and I look forward to continue to work with them as a key partner.” 

Tony Taylor CEO, British Ceramic Tile

 

“In engaging Cogito on a series of mapping and research programmes we have been able to make significant steps in our direct sourcing strategy.  Our recruitment team have become empowered through the external candidate data and competitor insight delivered by Cogito, which has enabled us to directly engage with candidates who would not usually be aware of our vacancies.

This increased access to candidates with increased knowledge of the market across multiple disciplines has helped us to increased direct sourcing performance and reduce cost per hire.  We consider Cogito to be a key strategic partner and look forward to benefiting further from their consultative approach and insightful solutions.”

Richard Frost, Head of Talent & Development, Natures Way Foods

 

“The quality of candidate insight has enabled us to engage with high calibre talent for key positions which will support our business growth and the provision of full market maps has further helped us to create future talent pipelines.

Their consultative approach and ability to gather and analyse people and market data provided our business leaders with the deep insight required to support them in making the strategic decision to expand our geographical footprint within the UK.  We consider Cogito to be a partner who puts our goals first and one which we will continue to work with in the future as key component of our recruitment model.”

Kim Randers, VP HR Europe – Fleetcor

 

“As a small, yet ambitious business with big growth plans we identified the need to think more creatively about recruitment.  Of utmost importance was to work with a partner who could find talent which matched our culture and ways of working, along with the ability to promote our relatively unknown employer brand to people with the skills we desired, but that did not create significant levels of spend.

 We engaged Cogito to create talent pipelines for our business; supporting both immediate hiring needs and providing the foundation for us to make future hires without additional costs.  The quality of candidates and level of market insight which enabled us to develop an effective proposition has led to immediate success, cost savings and the platform to recruit the right people for our business.”

Andrew Brown, Director – Bennison Brown

 

“We worked with Cogito on an end-to-end review of our recruitment activity – the approach they took was first class, I received extremely positive feedback from senior stakeholders and my recruitment team on their professionalism an engagement through this process and the insight they provided from both the qualitative and quantitative analysis has given me a clear roadmap of activity ensure our team adds real value to the business and offer a great candidate experience”
