Strategic Partner to PE/VC Firms in Support of the Growth of Their Portfolio Companies

Get In Touch

Our Philosophy

Venture Capital and Private Equity Firms are in the business to scale their portfolio companies. They inject large amounts of capital to ensure these teams are supported and are allowed to scale up their operations to reach their potential. Often, this causes many growing pains from a talent perspective. Lucas James Talent Partners partners directly with VC & PE firms in direct support of their portfolio companies: providing a dedicated, cost-effective, variable solution to help these companies at every stage of their growth.

On Demand

In an on-demand model, an RPO provider is available to help whenever the company needs them.

Project-Based

We can support discrete hiring projects or specific groups or divisions during peak periods.

Fully-Outsourced

We can act as your recruiting team, if you don’t have one.

Current State

  • Tech companies raise growth capital from venture firms and experience pressure to hire quickly, causing reactionary hiring scenarios.

  • Internal HR/People teams are often understaffed to support these hiring events and are forced to utilize a de-centralized vendor list of expensive traditional recruiters.

  • Companies experiencing rapid growth incur more stress on their hiring decisions as their hiring managers do not have the necessary bandwidth to build appropriate candidate pools.

Solution

  • Lucas James Talent Partners works directly with portfolio company leadership as the extension of their existing People teams.

  • FlexTeam Service offering allows Portco’s to keep People/Talent fixed overhead low costs variable based on hiring demand.

  • Cost-effective solution to help support current and future growth.

What We Do

Lucas James combines the flexibility of the on-demand and project-based models and the high-quality recruiting of the fully-outsourced model to create what’s called On-Demand RPO. We provide full lifecycle recruiters on an on-demand, time, and material basis. This allows us to make the best use of our time and resources as possible. Depending on a company’s needs, we act as an extension of their recruiting department or as an outsourced recruiting agency on a flexible basis.

"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."

 "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."
