Case Study: Search for a Sourcing Partner

Client: a multinational professional services organisation providing audit, tax and advisory services. The client was missing a dedicated sourcing partner, meaning the business lacked continuity and risk knowledge. Find out how the Lorien team solved this issue - read the full story below.

The client was missing a dedicated sourcing partner in their Risk team, meaning there was very little continuity and limited SME knowledge. 

They were using lots of agencies, a majority of which did not take the time to understand the business values and needs, resulting in a random, hectic pushing of CVs -the whole process was desperate to be streamlined.

The lack of understanding of this business area came from a combined effort between several areas within the client's organisation. The business partner and the sourcing partner from other areas need to have frank, open and honest conversations with Hiring Managers, Partners and PLs to understand the different Risk principles. 

This process would categorically not have worked if the sourcing partner and recruitment business partner were not communicating and working hand in hand.  Lorien used new ways of tackling the market. Not just using traditional methods like LinkedIn and job boards. Encouraging Hiring Managers to do videos on their career journey and the culture and projects we are working on - showcasing what day-to-day life is like working for the client.

Partners and PLs were also shown cost saving strategies devised by the Lorien team who then educating the Partners and PLs on the best recruitment practices. There was also a bigger focus on candidate and stakeholder interaction, building rapport and F2F meetings. 

Weekly update emails were sent to the different business areas with all activity broken down for review to ensure nothing was missed. Giving updates on where the Lorien team are in the process. as well as which candidates are at hiring manager review, interview or offer stage. Market insight videos were created to aid with recruitment.

Meeting with hiring Managers, candidates to focus on building that F2F rapport ended up being a priceless step and helped create trust between both of the aforementioned parties.

Market maps of each area were created as well as a LinkedIn project being executed to allow the client to build up their own network of candidates.
