jonathan campbell johnnyJonathan started out as a recruiter almost 15 years ago in Dublin, Ireland in the Accountancy and Finance desk of HRM Recruitment. From there, he went on to Accreate in Dublin and then the Cayman Islands to Baraud.

In 2008, after a 10 year span working for agencies, he and business partner Vincent O’Donoghue decided to set up their own agency, Select People, recruiting accountancy and finance professionals for the Caribbean by directly sourcing and headhunting candidates using social media rather than depending on advertising. It was this method of direct sourcing that spurred the development of Social Talent.

As the Manager of Employment Strategy and Branding at DaVita Lindsay gets the opportunity to constantly think outside of the box and think about what is possible instead of what has been done. She has the exhilarating challenge of attracting the right candidates to DaVita and spends her days figuring out the right messages, the right processes and the right mediums to attract those candidates. Her team’s favorite saying is, “More isn’t better” when it comes to candidates and they believe that time should not be spent trying to attract more candidates but instead the focus should always be on attracting the right candidates.

Our guests will be joined by some of our SourceCon Live regulars who always ask thought provoking questions.
