Passionate About Candidate Experience

We are as passionate about candidate experience, as our clients are about their customer experience. We ensure that all applicants experience a fantastic recruitment journey and, whether successful or not, have a positive experience of your organisation and brand.





Every candidate should feel fully supported to give the best account of themselves, and we will deploy a series of support mechanisms to allow them to do this; for example via Live Chat to answer queries and give advice, via live Twitter Q&A sessions and through preparation webinars ahead of video interview and assessment centre.








Our specific candidate engagement initiatives include:

We will build an online and offline strategy that provides a seamless ‘best-in-class’ candidate experience which will be mapped against the various ‘moments that matter’ (moments of choice and moments of inspiration) from brand awareness-consideration-preference through to application.

  • A School outreach program can be build upon or be established to support local school engagement including school careers events and fairs
  • Messages which speak to Generation Z including: mobile first, a desire to learn and build knowledge, purpose driven mentalities, a personalised experience
  • Creating opportunities for candidates to interact meaningfully with your business and brand ‘24/7’
  • A ‘How are we doing’ online survey which provides insight and intelligence on where improvements can be made
  • Management of post-offer Social media posts – commences the development of employee mentality including updates on company news and topical events.
  • Onboarding Interviews – conducted over the phone, drilling down on all areas of the recruitment and onboarding process.


Engagement with schools and therefore our future talent used to be one of our biggest recruitment blockers. Cohesion's database of contacts, specialist partners and unique approach has opened up the school pipeline to us.

"I recently applied for the programme of 2019, and was unfortunately unsuccessful. However, a key highlight of my application process was the great levels of communication with the recruitment team. I have been encouraged to apply for such an influential company once more and this has been further reinforced by my recent visit to the Placement Fair, where I met a current member of the Graduate Programme. Meeting such a relatable individual with a similar design background to myself reinforced my choice to reapply to the Technical programme once more.
