The Challenge

Talentful joined LeadIQ in a crucial period in which some key hires needed to be made, right in the middle of a crisis affecting millions globally. With no existing talent function in the business and a very high talent bar, the challenge was sizeable – but not insurmountable.

What’s more, LeadIQ were targeting senior roles, meaning that traditional, commission-based agency partners would be incredibly expensive. An experienced Talentful Client Lead who could apply their expertise to make a handful of key strategic hires was the obvious solution.

  • Key hires needed during global pandemic

  • No existing talent function in-house

  • Agencies too expensive to be a viable option

The Solution

Talentful parachuted in an expert Client Lead for a period of three months. This person would be responsible for hiring a selection of key roles:

  • Head of Product
  • UX Designer
  • Salesforce Architect
  • Head of People

Through the hire of a Head of People, not only did the Client Lead bolster the business with the senior roles needed, but also set down the roots needed for future growth without reliance on an external partner.

  • Embedded Talentful Client Lead

  • Prioritize Head of People

  • Reduce reliance on external partners

The Results

In the space of three months, Talentful made four key hires, with a 100% acceptance rate on offers. The Time to Hire was just over a month, with an effective rate* of 11.79%.

As an added value project, Talentful were also able to put together a salary benchmarking report for LeadIQ to give them a more strategic view of the market.
