Talent as a Service (TaaS)
Humber HR People’s Talent Acquisition Service – TaaS - supports organisations
to recruit the staff they need without the need for expensive agency fees.
TaaS is suitable for attracting and recruiting for specialist roles, senior positions, apprentices, graduates or just that job that you have been meaning to sort for ages, but haven't got round to yet. Our service offers you access to effective, low cost, simple processes for hiring, and while we are at it, we will help upskill your own team - coaching and training in hiring, interview techniques, and profiling tools and looking at longer term talent planning.
All this working alongside you, in your environment, which means we get to know you are your business and can advise personally what regional networks to plug into for your next talent!
Talent as a Service is suitable for business who don’t have the time, experience or enough internal resources to carry out effective recruitment but for whom the traditional agency model isn’t suitable - TaaS is a cost-effective and high-resource alternative.
Humber HR’s TaaS is unique because we:
Our team have 25+ years UK and International Recruitment Experience, backed by solid HR practice and employment law knowledge, which protects your business
We already have extensive networks in the Humber region so we can save time in reaching potential talent
We have commercial acumen to work across multiple disciplines - at both operational level and management/executive level
We offer in-depth psychometric testing as part of our service using the Accredited PPA/DISC Profiling Tool which help support your hiring decisions
We are fast - AVERAGE TIME TO HIRE for operational roles is just 9.5 days from initial brief to offer accept
We do things right, first time - SUCCESS RATE since launch of our TAAS Service is 100% - that means 100% of the people we have hired for our clients are still in post
We give value for money - AVERAGE COST slashed to 50% of traditional agency fees - this can be reduced even further with our retained service
We work exclusively with one sector at a time: this means if we partner with you, we will not undertake TAAS work with your direct competitors for the duration of our partnership to avoid any conflict of interest
TaaS is a cost-effective and high-resource alternative to traditional recruitment agencies - taking the stress off internal hiring managers and HR.
Here are some recent examples of TaaS in action.
Humber HR People worked on a two-day project to source and attract more candidates, using our in-depth networks and specialist headhunting techniques. We presented two candidates to supplement Victoria Plum’s own shortlist and advised on some of the direct applicants’ suitability. Both our recommended candidates were offered a second interview and one was hired within a 10-day period.
“ We can source candidates ourselves for our vacancies, but we sometimes lack the time and experience to shortlist. We had 144 applications for our most recent marketing vacancy. Kate from Humber HR narrowed this down to a Top 20, and then shortlisted via telephone interviews to the Top 10, providing a list of recommendations. The number 1 candidate turned out to be mine, too – the process was easy, saved time and was cost effective against the traditional options of using a recruitment agent who charges a fee. I would definitely recommend the Talent Service from Humber HR People to any organisation looking for expert recruitment support.”
The company didn’t have a formal job description, or access to be able to easily benchmark to know what they should pay. They also wanted to understand what the best route to hire would be. Humber HR assisted with the talent plan, produced the job description from our library, benchmarked the role in the local market and advised on how to understand their target talent pool and put in place good practice and solid plans for their own hiring.
