Managing Talent Acquisition Efficiently During Growth Spurt
Our client, a core tech company based in Australia, specializes in digital transformation, offering custom software development, technology consultation, organization-wide tech transformation, and ongoing technology maintenance. With a dynamic team, they aimed to scale their business from 50 to 100 employees within a year. However, they faced several challenges in achieving this ambitious growth.
Talent Shortage: Australia's tech industry suffered from a severe shortage of skilled professionals, making it challenging to hire quality candidates.
High Expectations: Due to fierce competition, experienced engineering talent in the region had high salary expectations.
Lack of Hiring Process: The client lacked a structured hiring process, resulting in prolonged recruitment cycles.
Pandemic Impact: The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted international migration, preventing the client from acquiring talent from abroad.
To overcome these challenges, the client decided to outsource their recruitment to Braves Technologies and Rent-A-Sourcer (RAS), focusing on the following goals:
Targeting elite tech talent from renowned companies such as Thoughtworks, Equal Experts, Sahaj Software, Tavisca, and GS Lab.
Establishing the client's presence in India by promoting their work, employee-centric culture, and competitive salary offerings.
Sustainable Hiring Models:
Offshore to Onsite Mode: Hiring candidates for the offshore team and eventually migrating them onsite.
Offshore Model: Setting up an offshore team in India to meet growing business needs.
Sourcing Onsite: Identifying Australian candidates for the client through RAS to build a sustainable pipeline.
Screening & Interview Process: Implementing a rigorous four-step process:
Pre-screening: Initial telephonic interviews to assess experience and expectations.
Coding Test: Evaluating technical potential and practical knowledge.
Technical Interview: Ensuring technical competence and facilitating direct communication with the client.
Leadership Interview: Assessing mutual fit for leadership roles.
After following rigorous and effective Sourcing techniques, RAS built a sustainable talent pipeline for Fabric Group.
10 candidates offered by RAS for multiple positions
6 candidates out of 10 were hired
Agency cost for 6 hires would have been $144,000; RAS cost for 6 hires was $28,000
The client saved $1,16,000/80.56% cost within the span of just 8 months
Client Satisfaction and Ownership
We have worked with Braves Technologies for the past 12 months, and Quentin is lead consultant for their Talent Sourcing Services at Rent-A-Sourcer.
This has been a very successful service, delivering Fabric Group an ample supply of pre-validated candidates, many of whom have been converted to permanent or contract roles with us.
Quentin has always been very responsive, adaptable to priority changes, and has a good rapport with the candidates and our in-house recruitment department.
