Co-operative Housing Ireland Recruitment
Over the past 4 years, 2into3 have managed the recruitment of 23 different senior and mid-level roles on behalf of Co-operative Housing Ireland, one of Ireland’s largest and fasted growing Approved Housing Bodies, with over 4,000 properties under their ownership and management.
This close relationship began in 2018 with the recruitment of a Head of Development role and has grown to cover a range of disciplines and levels of experience, covering Housing, Finance, IT, Asset Management, Risk, Service Delivery, Development, Operations and Member Engagement (see full list of roles filled below). We continue to work closely as trusted talent management partners, with barely a week going by when we are not working on at least one CHI role.
How We Do It
For every role we manage, 2into3 always ensures we have a thorough understanding of the organisation for whom we are recruiting, as well as the full details of the job in question. We spend time exploring the organisation’s background and learning about their vision, mission, and values, as such information is essential when attracting candidates to nonprofit roles.
After 23 different roles, we are in a position at this stage to understand CHI as an organisation and as an employer better than anyone else. We know the culture of the organisation, and what sort of personality traits would make a good fit. As a result, we can be confident we are presenting potential candidates to them that fit their technical requirements but will also be a good organisational fit and will work well in the team they will be joining.
But even with this level of understanding, we still take the time before each new assignment to fully understand the role, the skills and experience needed, and the core competencies required.
We update CHI on progress throughout the project but are also able to get on with the task without too many interruptions, and our next formal meeting is typically when we have a shortlist of suitable candidates to present on an agreed date. We then manage the setup and moderation of full panel interviews and subsequent reference checks.
We remove all administration tasks from CHI, both in their HR department and for the line manager for each role, allowing them to focus on their business priorities.
