Why should Startups consider Embedded?

Founders share a common pain point: hiring talent.

They spend up to 50% of their time trying to hire. Add on your teams time interviewing the wrong candidates, sourcing, writing and managing job adverts, and more, that's 100s of hours every month, costing your business thousands of dollars.

We created Bamboo Crowd with one single goal:

To help Founders build winning companies.

If you and your team spend more time then you feel you should be hiring instead of building product and acquiring customers then this is the solution for you.

Why should Corporates consider Embedded?

After 10 years of helping organizations to find innovation, digital, and design talent we noticed some key pain points.

Hiring managers needed support in understanding exactly what their needs were and articulating that into job descriptions. Talent Acquisition teams were becoming too stretched and needed support in finding very niche and hard-to-reach innovation talent.

Companies were also being left behind by a lack of access to the very best talent and relying on job boards and generalist staffing agencies. And their talent pipeline could not keep up to pace with the rapid and changing needs of hiring teams, particularly when it comes to technology.

There is a better way. That's where we come in!

Finally a new way to recruit top talent

We know this is the best solution for growing companies.

But you need to know what else is out there. After decades of recruiting experience we've designed something that fits companies of all sizes.

Other embedded solutions

High cost-burden each month plus you may be partnered with recruiters that lack experience or ability to solve recruiting challenges or hurdles.

Our Talent Partners are experienced and know how to solve problems. We also utilize a per hour model and fixed rate placement fee to reduce your risk.

More Internal Recruiters

Can be a longer term cost burden if you need shorter term support.

Also require a long ramp up whereas we can build an active pipeline of talent within a week. You also get an outside-in perspective and access to a wider pool of talent.

Contingency Search Recruitment

Much higher cost-per-hire and less sustainable for businesses and teams that need to make multiple hires over an extended period of time.

We become an extension of your business and include shared applicant tracking, weekly reports and monthly content to amplify your employer brand.
