After the fresh investment from No Such Ventures, there were 40 vacancies at Goboony. These vacancies were filled through internal recruitment processes and the use of promotion via traditional job search websites.
Many vacancies have been open for months. Both finding suitable candidates and expanding internal capacity to find them was a challenge. This delay caused a major impact at the expense of business growth.
High cost for quick solutions
Using a standard recruitment agency was not an option because, despite that solution could have speed up the process, the costs involved were way too high, around 22%-30% of the annual salary including holiday pay. Maybe a solution in the short term but in the long term these recruitment costs would have had a negative impact on attracting talent cause Goboony would then not always be able to offer a competitive salary.
Internal recruitment capacity difficult to scale up
Each vacancy posted through HireHeroes received enough candidates within 14 days to find a match. Within 8 weeks period, 15 vacancies were filled and still plenty of candidates were in the pipeline.
All candidates who showed interest in the vacancies went through a pre-selection beforehand that filtered out 80% of the applications. This way, the recruitment capacity on Goboony side could be used optimally and this bottleneck was also solved.
