Sourcing Hard-to-Fill Roles

PeopleScout developed sourcing strategies and conducted sourcing activities as well as provided access to job board postings and resume databases. We also curated and built talent pipelines and engaged with various talent communities. This included technical roles in rural areas which are particularly difficult to hire for.

We also supported Siemen’s early careers recruitment through a tech-powered selection process that added automation to their graduate recruitment program.

Recruitment Marketing

PeopleScout developed Siemen’s recruitment marketing strategy and employer brand messaging, including the design and copy for advertising, e-recruiting, job boards and other sources of recruiting. PeopleScout managed social media campaigns that pointed candidates to custom career pages.

“PeopleScout have been a great partner to the Siemens Australia business for the past 10 years. PeopleScout bring value through their years of international staffing industry experience, and they understand the opportunities and complexities of the local market. PeopleScout have developed an agile and scalable RPO model and provided us with quality resources to help identify and source both local and international talent from blue collar to C-suite.
