The Brief:

PageGroup had previously supported Elvie after its first round of funding in 2017. Based on the expertise and agility, Elvie re-engaged PageGroup in 2019 to support the initial phase of 80 hires across both Bristol and London sites. After a 4-agency pitch process, Page Outsourcing was appointed their exclusive partner.

The Solution:

Page Outsourcing assigned a project lead and dedicated resourcing team, which would be dialled up & down dependent on the phase of transformation. The project lead and stakeholder director were fully accountable for reporting and driving continued efficiencies throughout the initial phase of hiring.

Page Outsourcing built and deployed best in class media and PR strategy and consistently invested into the engagement of both passive and active candidates, whilst also headhunting in key employers. Page Outsourcing created an engaging landing page and an insightful candidate pack brochure highlighting the employee value proposition of Elvie.

The Impact:

  • Increased advert impressions to over 20,000 per week and 1000 applications
  • Engaged over 3500 potential candidates per week
  • Within 6 months, placed 102 skilled professionals with ongoing requirements
  • Reduced time to hire from 48 days to 27
  • Delivered the first three waves of hiring 12% under the initial allocated budget due to consolidation

“Without the support and expertise of Page Outsourcing we simply could not have scaled at the rate we have. They are dedicated and a pleasure to work with. We will continue our relationship with Page for many years to come”
