How WGI finds top contractors in record time.
Recruiting firm The Wellington Group (WGI) has built a premium brand on sourcing needed skills with speed. But locating highly skilled people open to contract work is time consuming, and Strategic Sourcing Consultant Molly Colsant needed a way to identify appropriate candidates more quickly. With LinkedIn Recruiter’s contractor sourcing feature, she can.
Finding contractor candidates quickly
Breakneck turnaround times are the norm in sourcing contractors, and many of WGI’s largest clients contractually require candidate referrals within 72 hours but expect them faster. Sifting through qualified candidates to find those open to temporary positions can be extremely time consuming. Colsant needed a more efficient way to zero in on skilled people who would be open to contract work.
Searching by employment type
With almost 40 openings to work on at any given time, Colsant values efficiency. Using LinkedIn Recruiter to search by employment type streamlines her research, allowing her to quickly access candidates who have signaled that they’re open to contracting. She now first drills down to a highly refined pool of candidates open to contract work and then expands her search outward to all appropriately skilled candidates who are open to new opportunities, using her time far more effectively by almost exclusively going after open talent.
Main product used:
In just two weeks, Colsant found over 20 quality candidates, with more promising potential hires in the pipeline.
With filtered searches, she can reach the most interested candidates quickly.
Given her success sourcing candidates filtering by contractors, Colsant rarely needs to broaden searches to all open candidates, as she has in the past.
“LinkedIn Recruiter provides you the ability to streamline and research in seconds, so that every hour of your day is productive.”
