Direct sourcing support


Sourcing has changed.....agencies no longer have a monopoly on candidates, and in-house resourcers now attract talent directly, for a fraction of the cost of the agency fees!


Even Robert Walters’ research finds 58% of active job seekers prefer not to use a recruitment agency and their RPO unit, Resource Solutions says, “Direct recruitment is still the most cost effective way of attracting talent”.

Other research notes “50% of corporate website traffic is to the career section”…....obviously a rich and ready source of keen candidates!


Direct sourcing saves money and response is increased by the pull factor of corporate branding, vision and values. Given job seekers preferences for connecting direct and the wide range of attraction channels now available, in-house hirers are cutting recruitment spend significantly. 


And, by driving the process, HR enhances its reputation and strategic influence at all levels within the business.


However, direct sourcing takes time and good candidates can be lost. To save time and extend HR's coverage we offer a range of affordable, menu-select support modules to suit varying needs, including;


  • role review and requisition with HR and/or line managers

  • advertising copy, print or digital, media advice, selection and placement

  • website portal, microsites, job boards, social media, talent pool search

  • offline sources, networks, referrals, hiring events, database search
