Rackspace has very high hiring standards to meet its mission, which makes recruitment difficult. To address this, Rackspace has worked with several leading recruitment agencies over the years to scour the Australian employment market. All but two have failed to meet their needs and place great candidates.
The two recruitment agencies Rackspace work with know what it means to be a Racker and can place great people for Rackspace’s core business, however, both find it difficult to place candidates for other functions, such as accounting.
Compounding this, Rackspace has one very busy HR Manager responsible for everything from recruitment to internal communications to training, which means recruitment can often fall to the bottom of the pile.
A solution was needed to complement Rackspace’s existing recruitment processes that could also open up more candidates and specialist recruitment agencies. To gain access to a huge pool of specialist recruiters and candidates, while also managing the HR Manager’s busy schedule, Rackspace partnered with Search Party.
