The team at Optus hire a variety of roles that are niche across many industries within the organisation. Therefore, this requires the team to utilise recruiters who specialise in recruiting within the niche.
This means that the team would often have to search outside of their existing panel and proceed through procurement processes to make the decision in onboarding external recruiters. Ultimately, this resulted in the team doing the research and request for approval, which slowed down the hiring time frame.
How TalentVine Helped
TalentVine’s marketplace allowed Optus to reach out to specialists within the marketplace when posting their roles. The display of recruiter’s bids, track records, ratings, and other details, assisted the team in deciding which specialist would be the right fit for the role.
Optus also uses one term of service on the TalentVine platform, which all the recruitment agencies agree to before working on the roles. This ensures that both the recruiter and the Optus team are agreeing to work against the same terms of service. Hence, this allowed the talent acquisition team to engage with various recruiters without hassling the procurement team in negotiating and approving the terms of service for each recruiter.
