Australia’s most reliable data centre provider. NEXTDC is an ASX 100-listed technology company and one of the fastest-growing tech businesses in Australia right now. As Australia’s most trusted provider of premium data centre solutions, they have a national footprint of nine data centres across the nation, with more on the horizon.

The Challenge

NextDC’s talent manager had resigned and there was a 6-week gap before the new talent manager started. The Head of People and Culture was preparing for maternity leave, a HRBP has resigned, and there were 2 new data centres opening soon. The people team could not handle all of the open vacancies alone for 6 weeks. RAR was able to step in on a part-time basis to fill the gap and keep the momentum of filling roles. Other challenges included:

  • Talent short market
  • Responses to applicants was slow
  • Smaller than usual People team

The Solution

Rent a Recruiter stepped in and got straight work on finding a maternity cover for the Head of P+C. Rent a Recruiter was able to work independently on a large number of newly created roles for two new data centres opening in Sydney and Melbourne. Rent a Recruiter was able to keep the momentum going which led to increased candidate satisfaction with better service and engagement which resulted in a higher rate of offer acceptance. Rent a Recruiter filled 2 roles that were open for over 6 months.
