Do you have a lot of marketing talent to hire in a short amount of time? You know they have to be right on the money so how do you do it? I find that many of our clients that come to me are in the same boat and here’s what I recommend: Recruitment Process Outsourcing, or RPO.
The most effective tool I’ve employed to help top agencies recruit large numbers of top marketing talent is Recruitment Process Outsourcing. RPO offers you many benefits: rapid staffing of the best talent, reduced costs, and lower risk.
I also recommend choosing a marketing recruitment firm because I believe it takes a talented marketing recruiter to identify a talented marketer. Here are some tips when selecting a marketing recruiter or retained marketing search firm:
- Hiring marketing talent should be the ONLY focus of the marketing staffing firm.
- The marketing recruiter should be able to scale up and down quickly, with a lot of agility.
- The marketing recruiter should be staffed with marketing professionals who can quickly identify the right talent.
Make sure you partner with a marketing recruiter that understands your company culture.
Regardless of the short time period within which your team must be hired, a marketing recruitment firm will be better able to understand your success factors and values, so that you are provided with the right talent. I believe it takes more than just core competencies and technical skills to build your team; you need people who will be a perfect fit culturally as well. An experienced marketing recruitment firm will have experience vetting people for your desired cultural qualities as well as the core competencies you need.
