Our colleague Aviel has been working for DONE! since March 2021. As a student of Political Communication, he quickly grew into his new role of HR Consultant and has since taken care of several clients such as Codept, Worldcoin or Diamontech.
“At DONE!Berlin I assist our clients to find the best talents for their future growth, support them in planning, understand their needs, and see which solutions are best for them”, says Aviel. “I enjoy doing that very much because as I get to know our clients, I become part of their internal decision making and processes, and can so better contribute with my knowledge and experience.”
Recruiting Is An Important Part Of Employer Branding
While Aviel fills open positions for his clients, he sees employer branding as the biggest challenge, because these young but fast-growing companies lack brand awareness. In addition, they often deal with innovative technologies, challenge the status quo or often break new ground. Therefore, their business and market opportunities in particular need to be explained in detail to applicants. However, this is also a unique opportunity for them if they manage to create their outstanding and special company narrative. For Aviel, employer branding is excellent storytelling – and he needs it to be successful in sourcing talents for his clients.
In addition, it is also about highlighting the unique advantages and benefits of the new employer. That’s why Aviel makes it a point to help applicants understand the unique work atmosphere at startups. For example, the many development and creative opportunities, the flexible and independent work, flat hierarchies, the cutting-edge New Work culture and work environment.
For Aviel, recruitment is marketing. That is why Aviel takes care that the first contact with a candidate is impressive and a memorable experience. He knows if the whole recruiting process delivers a marvelous candidate experience, it proactively supports the employer brand. Moreover, the first contact to an applicant is a great opportunity to create a positive word of mouth about the open job position, the company, its innovative business and culture.
