We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new product at RecruitLoop – Sourcing as a Service. It’s an entirely new product for us as a company, developed in response to a clear market need and feedback from both sides of our marketplace. We’ve been testing it privately over the past few months, and the response has been phenomenal.
We’re often asked about the difference between recruiting and sourcing.
For a long time they were viewed as one and the same. Historically, you could post an ad on a job board, receive applicants and make a selection. For some roles this remains true. But for a growing number of industries, roles and locations this just doesn’t work. Great talent is hard to find, and you need to be proactive to identify and contact potential candidates.
Recruiting and sourcing are increasingly recognized as distinct activities with very different goals and outcomes, requiring very different skills and processes.
Surprisingly, the actual definition of these activities is somewhat of an open question in our industry. It’s something we’ve considered deeply in developing the service.
For the purposes of our model – and importantly, to meet the need we were consistently seeing among our clients – we consider:
Now, some recruiters can do sourcing and vice versa. It’s a live debate in our industry – particularly on the question of who makes initial contact with a prospect candidate. But we see these activities becoming increasingly differentiated, as the skills and techniques to be a true specialist become harder to master. We also observe the best talent teams in the world structuring different roles and functions around these different areas.
We’ve developed Sourcing as a Service in response to consistent requests from a range of folks in our marketplace. For example, from:
Sourcing as a Service meets all of these needs.
We use a combination of world-class techniques, technology and data to identify prospective candidates that match your target profile. We’ve developed repeatable processes to this at scale, delivering high volumes of candidates at unmatched speed and with exceptional quality.
There are 3 steps to the process:
As a customer, you can purchase:
As a customer, you’re delivered a list (usually a spreadsheet) of candidates who meet your profile, with contact details and LinkedIn profiles. You get it quickly – usually 48 hours after approving the calibration. From there, the data is yours. You can contact prospects yourself; enter them into your ATS; or engage a recruiter to help with screening and outreach.
Funny you ask! We have a globally vetted community of independent recruiters, who would love to help. We can match you with a recruiter to help with outreach, screening, or interviewing – as much or little as you need.
When you’ve engaged a RecruitLoop recruiter, you also get a 20% discount on Sourcing as Service.
