Data-driven approach to international expansion.
Consortia was founded in the United Kingdom in 2010 and has since grown across three offices: London, Bristol and one satellite office in Germany. As Nathan Connolly, CEO and Founder, plans for hyper growth in the coming year, he needed data-driven insights to help inform business planning, client development and placement strategy.
To identify opportunities for expansion, Nathan and his team turned to Talent Insights for data on external candidate pools and markets to pinpoint unexpected locations where there is a high volume of digital, cyber and tech talent. Consortia has also used this data to further establish and strengthen the foothold on the existing markets they operate in.
Nathan and his team are also leveraging unique company data to identify opportunities for retained work with existing and new clients. They can demonstrate a deep understanding of the clients’ business and hiring strategy, such as where they’re losing talent and the skills they need to source; helping Consortia to show their clients how they stand out from their competitors.
Business planning: Nathan and his team have discovered talent in locations they hadn’t previously identified. With ideas on where to go next, the team now has the data to make their expansion plans a reality and given them confidence to move forward.
Secured retained work: Consortia is using Talent Insights to increase value to their existing clients by demonstrating a deep understanding of each client’s talent needs leading to more retained work for Consortia.
New business development: With the help of Talent Insights, the Consortia team has turned potential buyers into buyers by sharing insights personalised to their business and industry.
Placement strategy: Using Talent Insights, Consortia has secured two permanent placements for new clients that they wouldn’t have been able to win otherwise.
