John Tsintzos spoke with Global M Talent Partners about life as a Technical Recruiter at Intrasoft International.

INTRASOFT International is a leading European IT Solutions and Services Group with a strong international presence, offering innovative and added-value solutions of the highest quality to a wide range of international and national public and private organizations.
I am part of the technology recruitment function, servicing Intrasoft’s EU, Enterprise, and Public Sector Business Units. I am dedicated to driving growth without compromising on quality, strengthening brand awareness, and offering great candidate experiences.
So what are you successes to date?
I am part of a team of 3, where we successfully hired 120 people in 2020. I am proud to support and develop the team to achieve these types of targets.
What advice can you give to others alike?
Providing a first-class experience to candidates gives you the upper hand in the fierce competition with other companies.John Tsintzos
The employer-employee relationship has transformed dramatically. The power in recruiting, which has historically rested with employers, has now shifted to the candidates.
Candidate Experience is key as it not only helps to secure top talent but also shapes an organization’s employer branding.
What tips can you give on Stakeholder Management?
Always be honest and transparent with hiring managers, this builds trust. I enjoy building relationships and trust across senior members of the business.John Tsintzos
Personally, I participate in the tech interview process, to enable me to provide quality feedback on how to better the overall process.
How do you find and attract candidates?
I am proud to have incentivized the Intro referral scheme. This has been an amazing source of great candidates and untapped potential.
Can you give us insight on the Greek Market?
Greece has been in a phase of growth in the last 3+ years. Lots of great businesses and start ups are opening in the UK but remaining co-operations in Greece.
The Government has introduced a new taxation incentive for businesses to return to Greece. This is very appealing to businesses and is helping with the growth here.
Are you excited about any new Markets?
Always looking for great new talent!John Tsintzos
