Their story

Seven is Australia’s leading broadcast network and is part of Seven West Media. Seven West Media is one of Australia’s most prominent media companies, reaching more than 19 million people a month with a market-leading presence in content production across broadcast television, publishing and digital.

With Seven expanding its national teams at a rapid pace, the need for top tech talent both at a small and large level was crucial for their growth. With a lack of capacity within the existing Talent Acquisition function, Seven called on Talent Solutions and their knowledge of the hiring market and relationships with candidates within the marketplace to fill these hard-to-place roles.

The challenge

Despite a candidate-short market, the Seven Network was in the midst of business-critical projects that were requiring timely fulfilment of many niche and highly technical roles.

With the growth of the business, there was a lack of capacity within the existing Talent Acquisition function and an absence of the required recruitment expertise internally to fill these roles.

The hiring plan

Sourcing skilled candidates in this market was the biggest priority with a focus on proactively headhunting candidates. The team at Talent Solutions were rapidly deployed in an onsite/offsite delivery model and had the right sourcing tools, an extensive database and network allowing this to come to life.

Being strong brand ambassadors was a requirement from the Seven Network when speaking with Talent Solutions, and that any team member that was speaking with candidates represented the brand accordingly.

Transparent reporting was introduced on the progress of roles which was extremely beneficial to the team.

The result

All roles were filled ahead of schedule across permanent, contractor and fixed term hiring needs. Talent Solutions outperformed the time to fill SLA by more than 20% with a cost saving of over $60,000.

Throughout the time period, Seven’s ATS went down with Talent Solutions stepping in swiftly to mitigate the impact of this.

  • "Talent has met our expectations, exceeding SLAs despite some demanding skillsets and have additionally been responsive and adaptable as our partnership has matured.”
