How to hire top product talent
1. Appeal to hearts and minds
Attracting innovators capable of creating ground-breaking digital products or services requires a like-minded employer who can connect with the heart and mind. Every organization knows what they do, while some know how they do it, but very few know why. Captivate product leaders with a vision and mission they can get behind. Create a story that puts user-centricity at its centre. Your Heron Talent recruitment consultant will use your mission and vision to attract the brightest candidate when searching through their extensive global network.
2. Be clear about the job role requirements
Hiring experienced product talent with solid leadership skills can be crucial to your company’s success. A well-written job description is a key to attracting exceptional candidates. Our recruitment agency can help you attract a suitable candidate with a job description that clearly states the role’s requirements and makes your company shine.
3. Keep up with the competition
Imagine you’re a leader in your field working at a well-known organization, and you get scouted for a new job at a rival company. Changing companies and stepping into the unknown can be risky. A competitive salary with excellent benefits can entice sought-after candidates to make the switch. At Heron Talent, our recruitment consultants will help you attract the brightest talent and stay ahead of the competition by ensuring your offer is in line with market compensation.
What do Product Leaders look for in a new role?
Top candidates have high expectations. Here are the most common questions product professionals consider when weighing up a new opportunity:
Does the role offer growth potential?
How experienced is the team?
Do the company’s aspirations align with my ambition?
Will I have the mandate needed to lead? Does this support come from the board, CEO, or other product lead?
What’s the company culture like?
