In a move meant to bridge barriers around hiring, Smart Lab has launched its new recruitment and outsourcing platform, christened SMART LAB TALENT that will be supporting corporates to build topnotch engineering teams and provide support through the collective experience.
“It’s hard to hire developers…so, we help companies to achieve it by bridging barriers around hiring, identifying top talent that fits specific role, considering the employee lifecycle, and building successful teams,” – Said Edwin Bruno, Founder and CEO of Smart Codes.
Conversely, he said that these professionals are an extended part of Smart Lab and have been recruited to answer specific objectives of the respective employer. They will be working under the Smart Lab umbrella and delivering exclusively for that particular employer.
Smart Lab Talent recruitment program is a wing of Smart Lab that aims to link the right talent with the right employer. It is a new unit that outsources the top engineering teams for their corporate partners and provides them with support through vast technological experience that has been already existing in Smart Lab.
“These professionals are an extended part of Smart Lab and have been recruited to answer specific objectives of the respective employer. They will be working under the Smart Lab umbrella and delivering exclusively for that particular employer,” Mr. Bruno Said.
The candidates go through careful scrutiny, screening and training to make sure that they provide their employers with top notch engineering and technological solutions that are crucial in today’s demanding world.
The recruiting process starts with Smart Lab advertising posts on their online platforms. Then a selected panel of professionals within the organization sits down with the selected interviewees for a meet and greet. The floor is open for these professionals to open up about their careers and expectations. Selected candidates will go through another interview phase with top management before the final candidates are selected and groomed ready for their future tasks.
Every company has their visions and how to go about fulfilling them, but everyone will agree that the most investment a business can make is the people they employ. Do they have appropriate qualifications? Are they career-driven and growth oriented? Are they reliable, trustworthy and loyal? Going about getting the right employees (especially in this tech-driven world) can be quite a challenge and take some time.
Most companies will opt for a recruitment agency and take it from there. A good exercise indeed but arguably not enough. Most of these agencies have good HR departments but receive CVs from hundreds of employment hopefuls from different Industries. As a result of that, good enough candidates are employed after selling themselves well in the interviews. But as a business that’s looking to excel and stay on top of competition, are you looking for just good enough or great? What you need is professionals with qualifications, experience, knowledge, and where do you get them? From professionals who know how to pick them…hence, The Smart Lab Talent Recruitment Program.
“We have so far had great success with providing our partner, Vodacom Tanzania PLC, with a team of young, driven, energetic and ambitious Developers, UX/UI experts and Copywriters who have all proven to be a great addition to our team. We are looking forward to receiving more submissions and eventually map out Tanzania as one of the technological hubs in Africa and the world in general,” Mr. Bruno Said.
