Tech Recruitment Success: Fixify

In this tech recruitment initiative, Rent a Recruiter collaborated with Fixify to understand their specific requirements and co-develop a strategy to source and target the right candidates in a highly competitive market. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, this was a nuanced plan that took advantage of both Fixify’s unique position in the market, as well as Rent a Recruiter’s knowledge of the local landscape.

Tech Recruitment Challenges:

Fixify was in the process of establishing their footprint in Ireland. As a startup, they needed to move quickly and keep costs under control. Aligning with Rent a Recruiter gave them local hiring knowledge and recruitment expertise to meet their unique hiring needs. 

The primary tech recruitment challenge for the ‘Head of Helpdesk’ role was the urgency to find the right candidate within a limited timeframe. To address this, Rent a Recruiter and the hiring manager prioritised the most essential requirements for the role. Fixify’s hiring manager played a proactive role, reviewing applications before Rent a Recruiter engaged with candidates for screening calls. This collaboration significantly streamlined the process, enabling the identification and placement of the right candidate within the desired timeline.

Technical Specialist/Helpdesk Specialist: The challenge was to identify qualified candidates based on the right traits without burdening their internal teams. To make this process efficient, Rent a Recruiter worked with Fixify to develop detailed technical questions to use during their screening calls. This front-loaded the screening, relieving pressure on the hiring manager and speeding up the end-to-end process.

 

Tech Recruitment Solutions:

The outreach and engagement phase was pivotal in attracting high-caliber candidates. Rent a Recruiter utilized popular job boards such as LinkedIn and Indeed, ensuring wide visibility for the job openings. However, recognising the value of passive candidates, Rent a Recruiter also employed a direct approach. Potential candidates were contacted with personalised messages that included job specifications and invitations for initial phone conversations. Our tech recruitment approach not only broadened the talent pool but also helped in tapping into a segment of the market that is often overlooked.
