In Depth Case Study
One of our not-so-hidden talents is contract recruiting. To find top contractors, your sourcing strategy needs to be agile, your communication needs to be quick, and you must be ready to make an offer if you like what you see. Contract recruiting is a special skill and engaging a staffing partner is key to gaining an advantage over your competitors.
Our client is a global organization in the Information Technology and Services industry. In the past year, this client has expanded its domain into new and emerging markets. With a breadth of projects, our client was in need of contractors to work on all things technology from Help Desk to Corporate Engineering.
At any given time, our client is recruiting for thousands of positions, and when it comes to niche skill sets in technology, the first firm they think of is CultureFit. With a history of successful and impactful contractors, we know exactly how to attract and retain top contractors.
Knowing that top contractors don’t start looking for their next project until nearly two weeks from completing their current project, we know that speed and clear communication is key to unlocking success. When recruiting contractors, the communication piece of our partnership becomes more important. In contract recruiting, a candidate can be on the market in the morning and off the market by 3:00 pm that day.
Contractors want to secure jobs quickly, and that requires a lot of communication. In the case of our client, the average time from submission to hire was about five days with much of the interviewing process occurring while they completed their project.
With time being of the essence, we strategized an interview process that was two steps. This ensured our client’s ability to act on the talent they liked quickly. This revised strategy also worked well for candidates as the process was not lengthy and feedback was swift.
