How we work?

You won’t need us long term.

We engage through a helpful problem solving approach. Our first ‘chemistry’ session is free. You start by giving us a hiring challenge, we’ll put our full resources into cracking the code.


The journey together begins with us joining you onsite for a couple of hours to learn about your business, talent challenges and future roadmap. We seek to understand your people, culture, historic hiring data and how you are approaching recruitment. 


We’ll analyse your information, define what you are trying to achieve with your hiring operations and recommend which of our talent services would best suit the situation. Our proposal will detail the team, resources, monthly fee, project outcomes and time frames.


A dedicated partnership manager will work onsite to build and manage your strategy, process and the service delivery true to your brand. This person will be responsible for selecting the team of talent advisers that culturally fit your business so we have the right style for your stakeholders.


You’ll work with our branding expert to create a campaign that best fits the service and project outcomes. We will design content that is authentic to you and tailored for the people you want to hire. It’s important we understand your people, the employment proposition you offer and everything else that can feed into your story, elevating your profile in a noisy jobs market.


Supporting your onsite solution is our candidate attraction team. They use employer brand content to engage talent online, build relationships through 1-2-1 video meetings and influence applications with creative jobs packs. When you are ready to hire, we aim to already be speaking to the right people in your pipeline. 


It’s now time for the team to arrive onsite fully equipped with our systems and tool kit. Their objective is to introduce best practice processes to support your hiring managers, deliver a stellar candidate experience and generally elevate your hiring ability. Our infrastructure is already built – we just need to seamlessly plug it into your environment and get to work.


We fully understand that long-term, you’ll want to handle our service yourselves. Once we’ve transferred all our knowledge, it’s time for you to take it on. We’ve designed our infrastructure for easy migration. You can take as much or as little as you want, and our partners have pre-agreed rates to make the transition cost-effective compared to ‘new customer’ pricing. 


When you’ve invested all this time and work to enable hiring success for your business, it makes sense to have some future check-ins to ensure the system we left behind is still working perfectly. You can lean on us to do some simple health checks at agreed junctures, and your team will always have a direct line to our team.
