When it comes to small businesses, internal hiring departments are either non-existent or have limited bandwidth to fulfill hiring needs. Employees may not have adequate time or resources to dedicate the appropriate level of energy to filling a candidate pipeline. However, they’re sensitive to the exorbitant fees that third-party recruiting firms charge.
In an on-demand model, an RPO provider is available to help whenever the company needs them.
Like the on-demand model, companies use a project-based model when an RPO provider hires for a specific project or division of the company.
The fully-outsourced model contrasts against the on-demand and project-based models. An RPO provider is essentially responsible for a company’s entire recruiting process.
Small businesses and mid-market organizations often are building the internal recruitment and HR infrastructure along with the growth of their business and often lack the tools, resources, and partners in order to perform the most optimal talent acquisition practices. From the small business that lack an internal recruitment function to mid-market organizations relying too heavily on high cost recruitment agencies.
Lucas James Talent Partners can deploy a team of experienced recruiters, lead by a dedicated Delivery Project Manager to act as an extension of our partner companies to support this growth.
We often act as the talent acquisition department for our clients, giving them the flexibility to scale support up and down depending on needs.

- On-Demand support allowing clients to call us and get needed recruiting bandwidth within 0-2 weeks timeframe.

What Are Clients Saying?
"We appreciate the flexibility that Lucas James offers. We are able to staff up during peak season without having to commit to full time resources. Lucas James has an experienced team that can integrate quickly into a staffing model."
Associate Director of Talent Acquisition,
"We have seen results in all of the standard recruiting KPI’s, time to fill, hiring source etc., but more importantly we have seen quality in the people joining. We are in high growth mode, so it is easy to slip into fast hiring tactics to fill seats, but in partnership with Lucas James and our hiring managers, we have continued to keep the quality of the interviews, quality of the assessments, and quality in the conversations determining who will be the best new team member."
Head of People,
"It feels like my partners at Lucas James are full-time members of Rewards Network's recruitment team. They understand our culture, process, and the need to bring key talent into our organization. All are very in tune with our business and what is happening in our markets and industry which just strengthens their partnership with hiring managers."
Head of People,
"Lucas James Talent Partners' unique model is flexible, affordable, and their team helped with areas outside of just sourcing like creating job specs and running the interview process end to end. Multiple portfolio companies have been very happy with the results and have had success hiring across a broad range of functions."
Director of Talent,
