Retained Recruitment Project
Posted on 21st December 2022 at 12:32
Emerald Starfish was referred to a rapidly growing engineering company whose HR function was struggling to keep up with their recruitment needs. The company took the decision to hand over their recruitment at all levels on a 9-month retained basis to Emerald Starfish. We were tasked with increasing candidate retention, a reduction in time to hire and a reduction in recruitment costs.
The company needed a recruitment strategy that supported their rapid growth plans.
The company was used to working with standard recruitment agencies that had incurred high costs and didn't work within the companies values. This resulted in poor candidate quality and lack of commitment.
The HR team were spending the majority of their time on recruitment meaning that other parts of their people strategy and development was being overlooked
