Why a Fractional Talent Partner might be the choice for you

A fractional talent partner, also known as a part-time or on-demand talent acquisition professional, can offer several benefits to organisations looking for a flexible and strategic approach to talent acquisition, or to save on agency/headhunter fees. 

Here are some reasons why you might consider engaging a YourCode Recruiter, as a Fractional Talent Partner: 

Cost-Effective Solution

Hiring a full-time talent acquisition professional can be costly, as can paying large headhunting/agency fees, especially for smaller businesses or those with intermittent hiring needs. A fractional talent partner allows you to access experienced talent acquisition expertise without the expense of a full-time salary and benefits package. 



Fractional talent partners offer flexibility in terms of the number of hours worked and the duration of the engagement. This is particularly beneficial for organisations with fluctuating recruitment needs or those undergoing seasonal hiring cycles. 


Specialised Expertise 

Fractional talent partners often have specialised expertise in talent acquisition. They bring valuable insights, strategies, and best practices to the table, helping you navigate the complexities of recruitment more effectively. 


Strategic Recruitment Planning 

Engaging a fractional talent partner allows you to have a strategic approach to recruitment. They can work with you to develop and execute a customised talent acquisition strategy aligned with your business goals and objectives. 



As your organisation grows or experiences changes in recruitment needs, a fractional talent partner can scale their services accordingly. This ensures that you have the right level of support without overcommitting resources during slower periods. 


Access to Networks

Experienced fractional talent partners often have extensive professional networks, which can be leveraged to identify and attract top talent. Their connections can help you tap into a broader pool of potential candidates. 


Time Savings

By outsourcing recruitment activities to a fractional talent partner, internal teams can save time and focus on other critical aspects of their roles. This is particularly valuable for small and medium-sized businesses where HR resources may be limited.


Objective Perspective 

An external talent partner can bring an objective perspective to your hiring process. They can identify areas for improvement, offer fresh insights, and help you refine your recruitment strategies. 



Fractional talent partners are often adaptable and can quickly adjust to changes in the market, industry, or organisational priorities. This adaptability is beneficial in dynamic business environments. 


Project-Based Approach 

If you have specific recruitment projects or initiatives, a fractional talent partner can be engaged on a project-by-project basis. This allows you to tailor their involvement to your immediate needs. 

Before engaging a fractional talent partner, it’s important to clearly define your expectations, communication channels, and the scope of their responsibilities. 

Ensuring a strong collaboration and alignment with your organisation’s goals will contribute to a successful partnership.
