Interim Creative Professional Teams – a New Way to Outsource Talent
I’m not your Average Recruiter. I came into the Recruitment and Search industry as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) having held various digital and marketing leadership roles at companies such as Big Buzz Communications and Computer Associates.
I know what it’s like to have to suddenly assemble a team of creatives to address a big pitch when you don’t really have the bandwidth to handle the workload. You can’t sacrifice the business opportunity, but pulling your people off existing projects will significantly alter deadlines and client delivery on existing business.
Agencies and Marketers Can Access Creative Talent Teams To Go
Now imagine, a pre-qualified, fully vetted, appropriately matched Marketing Team arrives on your doorstep. Typically, this team might consist of:
- Creative Director/Project Leader
- Web Designer/Developer
- Digital Marketing Strategist …or, whatever kind of creative/digital team is needed to execute the project at hand.
Of course, the team doesn’t just happen. There are steps taken to ensure an understanding of who and what you need. We talk skills, experience, the most efficient way to execute and the project budget. This detailed consult allows us to determine the resources and skill level for each position, the pay rate for each and allow room for overhead and agency profit, timelines for completion and any ongoing resources (such as social media or SEO).
Both agencies and corporate marketing departments are migrating over to outsourcing more and more for project work. It’s a business reality, but LLoyd Creative’s Dream Team gives you a knowledgeable partner to assemble the talent needed to win the client. Instead of stretching already overtaxed internal resources, everyone stays on task and you get a well-crafted solution to your creative challenge.
