Direct Sourcing what you need to know

Skills gaps are quickly becoming business-critical concerns, and traditional sourcing strategies are not offering organizations the volume of talent needed to achieve their strategic ambitions.

A Direct Sourcing strategy unlocks access to dynamic talent networks, as well as enhancing the’ pull power’ of your brand to appeal to previously untapped sources.

  • The power of three

    A Direct Sourcing strategy combines the strength of your brand with new technologies and a marketing strategy built on engagement in order to build and nurture a network of skills and talent aligned to your future demand. Unlocking access to the talent you need to tackle tomorrow’s challenges.

  • Award-winning technology

    We’re passionate about meaningful innovation, so we’re always seeking new ways to enhance and optimise the way we get work done. We’ve created and refined a propriety tech stack and have the in-house capabilities to optimize an array of third-party CRM technology. Sourcing the people you need, intelligently.

  • An enhanced customer experience

    Engaged individuals are vital customers, so you need to offer a quality experience. Our Direct Sourcing strategy takes a holistic approach towards candidate attraction and engagement, leveraging the strength of your brand and aligning the elements of their journey to build a pipeline of engaged workers.

Direct Sourcing an option for every organization

Direct Sourcing networks take two primary forms. We offer a proprietary strategy for those with high brand recognition and a critical mass of demand. There is also a shared option for organizations looking to leverage the existing market position of a workforce solutions partner.

You define your needs and we’ll adapt our approach. Whichever option you select, you’ll benefit from enhanced access to the skills and expertise you need.


Enhance your company culture 

Organizations are so much more than their bottom line. Transform culture in your competitive advantage.


When introducing Direct Sourcing as a part of your workforce strategy, it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing approach. For some niche or difficult to fill roles, recruitment and staffing agencies may prove more cost effective.

But in scenarios where demand and geographical concentration are high, Direct Sourcing can build and nurture a network of skills, with a workforce solutions partner supporting internal marketing and HR teams as you refine your employer brand, messaging and value proposition.

You need to ensure that your organization and your provider align across key objectives and priorities.

Can your provider ensure access to the skills you need? Review their track record, including case studies and testimonials, and ensure they have the infrastructure and resource to meet – and exceed – your expectations.
