Opus Regulatory used LinkedIn Job Posts to fill highly specialized roles and remain the leader in a niche industry.
Known for having the top consultants in regulatory affairs for pharmaceuticals and healthcare, Opus Regulatory continued to lead their industry by hiring more candidates who met their high standards. “Recruiting is such an important function of our company because our product is our people,” said Allison Aguirre, executive recruiter. LinkedIn Job Posts gave them the tools to promote high-priority consultant roles and target more candidates with direct biotech and pharmaceutical expertise. By filling highly specialized roles, the company was able to win more client projects and solidify its reputation as the industry’s leader.
An extremely narrow hiring pool
In a niche industry with few consulting firms, Opus Regulatory had a limited pool of qualified candidates and didn’t know where to find more. They weren’t finding enough relevant applicants with LinkedIn Job Slots, and they weren’t getting high response rates from InMails. On top of that, employee referral bonuses and conference booth rentals were too expensive. Additionally, Opus Regulatory has a non-solicit agreement with their clients, so they couldn’t reach out to potential candidates working at client companies. To remain an industry leader, they needed to quickly find and hire top consultants — who make up the most important part of their business.
Advanced targeting to get hard-to-find, expert candidates
Opus Regulatory decided to transition from Job Slots to Job Posts, which brought them a higher volume of applicants who met their high standards. Using the LinkedIn Job Posts Optimization Guide and advanced targeting features, they were able to find primary hubs and hidden gem locations for candidates with pharmaceutical and biotech experience, and attract them without reaching out directly. They were even able to start engaging people from client companies because their job posts reached this particular audience without violating the non-solicit agreements. Job Posts also gave them more flexibility in their budget to promote high-priority and executive-level roles when they need them filled. Overall, they saw a greater ROI with Job Posts than they did with previous recruiting efforts. Along with LinkedIn Recruiter, Job Posts helped Opus Regulatory meet client demands by finding highly skilled candidates and remain the leader in their industry.

“It’s almost like we have another person working in the background, targeting people while we’re also sourcing. It’s been a relief to have that extra support and AI technology.”
