Outsource talent acquisition specialists to the Philippines


What is a talent acquisition specialist?

A talent acquisition specialist is responsible for sourcing candidates using various channels, planning interviews with hiring managers and coordinating selection procedures and criteria. Organisations hire talent acquisition specialists to handle the entire recruitment process so that line managers can focus on their work, and leave the hiring and sourcing process to the professionals. 

Talent acquisition specialists don’t only work on immediate vacancies but keep an up-to-date candidate pool of talent in relevant departments. This ensures that when contracts or full time positions require a replacement, they can act quickly and efficiently to provide a suitable candidate. 

Talent acquisition specialist duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising with hiring managers to determine requirement needs and selection criteria
  • Sourcing potential candidates through various platforms including online advertisements, LinkedIn, social media and job boards
  • Managing the hiring process from start to finish, including screening, interviewing and offering stages
  • Organising the interview process and questions for shortlisted applicants.

These hiring tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced. Organisations free up their local human resource (HR) teams’ time by sending these tasks to outsourced talent acquisition specialists. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value, revenue generating work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great talent acquisition specialist?

Talent acquisition specialists are required to go through hundreds of applicants at any given time. They need to be able to distinguish and shortlist suitable candidates whilst maintaining a non-bias approach. This requires attention to detail, prioritisation and excellent organisational skills. They also need to take into account the technical skills needed for each role as well as company values when deciding on candidates. 

Outsourcing service providers recruit talent acquisition specialists the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have in recruitment or a similar HR function?
  • How do you liaise with hiring managers to develop hiring strategies and profiles?
  • What hiring platforms are you familiar with?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication between potential candidates and hiring managers during the interview process?
  • Provide an example of a role you had successfully placed where you had to screen candidates, compile shortlists and then interview them?
  • What applicant tracking systems are you familiar with? 

In terms of whether a higher education degree or certification is necessary for a talent acquisition specialist role, it is dependent on company requirements. Some businesses have the HR resources to train entry-level talent acquisition specialists in the way they like to recruit. Whilst others, especially for the more executive and senior management roles, prefer an experienced and educated talent acquisition specialist who understands the techniques and questions that will find the right fit for more critical roles. 

If you are seeking a talent acquisition specialist with an educational background, then a degree in human resource management or a HR certificate would be desirable. 

Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's HR requirements. By hiring successful offshored talent acquisition specialists, your local HR team can focus on overall staff satisfaction and revenue generation.

  • Create a job description: to help us hire the right candidate for your role. We can also assist in this process to ensure we are finding the best talent in the current local market. 
  • Source the right candidate: we source candidates across our database and the local market before presenting you with a shortlist of the most suitable candidates available.
