Our client is a technology consultancy company that implemented a new program, aimed to
deliver training as a service in the form of online courses. Each course contains a group of videos
that cover certain topics in IT. Therefore, the company needed 11 Course Authors who are
subject matter experts and have experience authoring online courses from scratch. Considering
us a top-tier recruitment agency, the client believed that we would be their go-to partner.
Rise to the Challenge
Finding experts, who are skilled in different topics such as python, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and
other topics was not that hard. The real challenge we faced was the rate offered by the client, it
was a little lower than the market’s actual rates which deprived us of too many good candidates
who were not interested because of the low rate.
To solve the challenge, we had to source qualified candidates from every available general job board and specialised portal, as well as targeting countries where the offered rates can be competitive. So we turned our search for candidates in the following countries: Russia, China, Pakistan, Ukraine, Romania, Egypt, Italy and India, Greece.
Our screening phase included an interview in which the candidate illustrated his skills, previous
experiences, and career objectives. Then, the candidate conducted an audition to present a
preview of the course so we can assess his/her teaching skills, and relevant interpersonal skills,
as well as how good the candidate is at delivering knowledge.
The shortlist, we provided to our client, was supported by a comprehensive report on every
candidate for the client to choose the most suitable candidate to move forward for further
