Quick turnaround for niche skills for the Department of Social Services (DSS)

Background

  • DSS was executing a large Siebel project that required highly skilled Siebel Architect, Testers, Business Analysts and Developers.
  • They had a three-week timeline to complete placements so that the project runs on time.
  • As the time of requisition, strong Siebel candidates were in high demand and short supply compared to other CRM platforms.

Critical actions

  • We conducted a thorough search of our database, targeting Canberra candidates with prior experience working with DSS. We also concurrently advertised on online job boards in order to save time.
  • We used Enterprise LinkedIn Recruiter to list targeted jobs on our Career page (5,000+ followers). Our job postings were keyword optimised to hit the right target.
  • Our Recruitment Consultants used LinkedIn Premium Accounts to continuously network with Siebel professionals.

Results

  • Five candidates were hired within three weeks (Siebel Testers, Siebel Business Analyst, Siebel Developer).
  • 55.6% success fill rate (number of candidates submitted vs hired).
  • All candidates received excellent performance feedback. Their contracts were extended by DSS.
  • The number of placements we made on this project for DSS made us one of the biggest suppliers to DSS.
