What is Sourcing as a Service

Sourcing as a Service

You might be wondering why you would need to outsource your candidate sourcing if you already have an internal recruitment team?

Composing lists of candidates is one of the most labour intensive tasks in the recruiting field – locating the candidates, qualifying them, determining if they are truly in the job market… the list goes on. In some organisastions, recruiters spend as much as 70% of their time sourcing candidates!

Hiring a sourcing service to procure quality candidates takes the pressure off of your team, frees up their time, and allows them to focus on larger projects.

Organisations of all different levels and sizes opt for third-party sourcing teams, including startups, internal and external recruiting teams, and hiring managers.

Here’s how outsourcing recruiting services can empower the hiring team:

#1 Sourcing allows recruiters to focus on real candidates.

If your recruiters spend most of their days scanning LinkedIn and job boards for the ideal candidate, they will have little time to actually “recruit” them, let alone qualify them.

That’s where our sourcing service comes in. By having “pre-qualified” candidates in the pipeline and ready for a recruiters first review, the pressure and distraction is off of the recruiter to find the candidate

Sourcing services provide lists of candidates with verified contact information and background details.

#2 Sourcing as a Service promotes efficiency.

Recruiters have a specific skill set: building relationships.

When it comes to sourcing, if recruiters are constantly occupied behind a computer searching and vetting potential candidates, they aren’t utilizing their talents.

By employing SPR-Solutions, recruiters spend their time getting to know future team members and focus on finding the right fit for a company’s culture and the job position.

#3 Sourcing as a service loads up the pipeline.

Have you ever had a pipeline of potential candidates not producing the right candidate? In the current jobmarket it is highly likely.

Utilizing SPR-Solutions eleviate the need for searching the right candidate. Recruiters can simply apply the list of candidates procured for that position.

How does the process work?

There are three general steps to sourcing as a service:

1. Identify your ideal candidate, through a interview process.

2. Within a few days, you will receive matching profiles to review against your ideal candidate. In a feedback session the perfect candidate wille be identified.

3. Your team will receive a full list of qualified profiles (with contact information) which you can reach out to and begin the hiring process.

The lists of qualified candidates are procured by the sourcing teams and contain verified contact information and background details.

The sourcing experts are cross-trained as recruiters. With this training, experts can quickly and efficiently pre-screen candidates, generate hype for job positions…. And you can trust them to get the job done.
