Talent Acquisition

BrightBox Talent Acquisition covers three core areas for our clients; Permanent recruitment, Contract provision and Resource Process Outsourcing. All of which are services that are tailored to the clients requirements and can easily scale or flex based on both the current and future need.

Service overview

Permanent recruitment is precision-based, focussing on sourcing the best candidate(s) for the right career. Whereas Contract, or Associate sourcing, creates a multi purpose, flexible and dynamic workforce that can be quickly and easily scaled to meet your demand. A blend of these models is also possible, for example meeting demand in the short term through contract based resources whilst staffing permanent resources long term.

We continuously engage with an active talent population, building and evaluating our candidate database to ensure we have access to the best talent on the market as quickly as possible. By bringing in candidates to be a BrightBox Associate we build a continued and valued relationship that allows us to ensure both Associate and Client are happy with the pace at which we can react whilst not compromising the quality of work delivered.

“Starting up a new, leading edge technology business can be a daunting prospect, especially when it comes to hiring the right team. Given their software / digital heritage we approached BrightBox to understand how they could help me grow my team. From day one we had niche requirements and we were amazed at the pin point accuracy they had with candidate matching, this included assessing the cultural fit for the business we wanted to grow. It was also helpful to talk with the owners about the journey they had been on. I would highly recommend working with BrightBox whether you are a new startup or an established business.”
