Elastic PSA use, WorkCover Queensland




The Talent Acquisition team at Workcover QLD hire a variety of specialist and technical roles across a vast number of specialisations. This required access to a variety of specialist recruiters that weren’t always available from their panel of recruitment agencies. Each time a new role was placed, the terms and the fees needed to be approved with the legal and procurement teams which created a headache and slowed down the time to hire.

How TalentVine Helped

Workcover QLD uses one set of terms and conditions on the TalentVine platform which all recruitment agencies agree to before working on any roles. This ensures that everyone is working against the same terms of service through TalentVine. Workcover QLD is able to review all the bids from recruiters before deciding whom to engage with. The examples of ‘similar roles recently placed’ and corresponding ratings and metrics provide the team with full clarity around who the best consultant is to work with each time.
