Recruitment software company Pinpoint has appointed a new Client Engagement Specialist.
In this newly created role Tom Burston, who previously led the recruitment strategy and process across the offshore business of Standard Bank, will be responsible for helping Pinpoint’s clients attract and hire more of the best talent using Pinpoint’s recruitment software.
Tom Hacquoil, Cheif Executive Officer, said: “Our business is about helping HR and recruiting teams make better hires. The software we’ve built is an important part of achieving that but the support and industry experience we offer to our clients is just as important as the software itself.”
“Tom Burston has delivered some outstanding results in his time at Standard Bank and I know he’s going to add massive value to our clients as we help them to reduce their reliance on recruitment agencies and attract more of the best candidates directly.”
Tom Burston commented: “In Pinpoint I’ve found a company providing the candidate sourcing and selection software I wish I’d had available to me in my previous roles as an in-house recruiter.”
“Whilst my new role is ultimately to sell software, we only take on clients when we know that we can add real value to their recruitment process. That’s why we’re hiring recruitment consultants (internal and agency side) from a wide range of industries rather than salespeople – it’s the knowledge and experience of the sector that’s important in helping businesses understand whether our approach is right for them.”
