This is a lean, speed-based approach where we will deliver an interviewed shortlist supported by a candidate report in-line with a mutually agreed interview framework.

Contract & Interim

We serve as a partner to rapidly identify and select contract resource to in line with your business agenda. For contract and interim appointments, we go straight to our proven networks, in addition to passive searches and social media campaigns, to ensure we provide the right people who will make an impact immediately.

Contract and Interim appointments are typically recommended when; specialist resource is required for specific programmes of work, businesses are seeking objective assistance in strategy creation, or a business wants an independent expert to shape and deliver a change agenda.

Virtual In-House Partner

We understand that not all businesses can invest in a dedicated in-house technology recruiter full-time, and when they can, the recruiters often don’t have the broad market view which we are exposed to. Linked to a tiered monthly cost-structure, Delaney & Bourton can partner as a flexible virtual resource, providing deep specialist market knowledge in all aspects of the recruitment process, from resource planning through to candidate search and on-boarding. To start with, we’ll sit down with you to understand your average monthly recruitment spend and cost per hire last year, before proposing a cost-effective solution outlining measurable benefits.
