No, Sdara is not a recruitment agency. It is also not a job portal. Sdara combines the roles and functions of a specialist national talent placement agency with deep expertise in strategic communication and employer branding in order to shape conversations around national talent, along with proven, extensive experience developing exceptional national talent.
An organisation working with Sdara taps into all of these capabilities through a digital platform with a suite of solutions bespoke to each client’s unique needs. Sdara works because it creates the ecosystem necessary for national talents to prosper.
Sdara engagements are typically bespoke end-to-end engagements encompassing the entire national talent acquisition, development and retention journey. We do, however, engage with clients on industry-specific talent accelerator programs, unique digital talent activation events, and National Employer of Choice employer branding, PR and campaign solutions.
A typical end-to-end Sdara engagement runs between 4 to 8 months, depending on the scope of the program and the number of desired candidates. In that timeframe, organisations and government entities undergo a National Employer of Choice repositioning outlined in a strategic communication playbook. From there, we engage in production and publishing of talent acquisition campaigns, pipelining and selecting talent, activation events, and the design and delivery of a talent accelerator and on-boarding program; all delivered through a branded portal on the Sdara platform.
Sdara assesses your current employer brand to understand areas of strength and pathways of further development that your employer brand can capitalize on. Using our proprietary National Employer of Choice framework, Sdara will work with your team to reshape and communicate your employer brand in a manner that engages your target audience.
