Bespoke solution to attract hard-to-source talent

The challenge:

Relying on standard recruitment methods such as contingent search, this leading offshore firm had been unable to fill a niche role. The pool of candidates with the required specific skill set was very small and most of the lawyers they could reach did not want to relocate, though they were struggling to reach the full scope of the market.

Our solution:

Given our strong track record with this client, we proposed a retainer that would include market mapping, targeted LinkedIn approaches, email campaigns, headhunting and branded advertising. This enabled us to pitch a very specific brief of the role to the right candidates, who we could then screen before any interviews.

The outcome:

  • We identified a shortlist of candidates that the client successfully hired from.

  • We formed relationships with a handful of key candidates during the process and were able to spread a strong message about the firm in the market.
