The Struggle for Talent   

As a former internal Recruitment Manager who has worked for several leading technology companies, sourcing talent on a consistent and cost effective basis is a challenge for most small to medium sized businesses.

To address the recruitment challenge, larger companies often partner with a recruitment outsourcing partner (RPO) or have an in-house recruitment function. However, for small to medium sized companies(SME’s) where this is not viable, they often approach recruitment with trepidation, fearing that they will not fill the position in a timely manner.

Some companies attempt to source candidates directly however without the tools and network, they often fail to hire the best candidate on the market. If this fails, then the next step is often to engage a recruitment agency with the inherent potential pitfalls that this can bring.  


There is a Middle Way  

Having worked internally for several leading technology organisations, plus a few leading recruitment outsourcing companies, we have developed our off-site talent8 solution. The solution delivers the benefits and best practice of an in-house recruiter without the associated risks and fixed costs; delivering improved time to hire, cost per hire and quality of hire.
