Your Arlington, TX staffing agency alternative

Located in the heart of the country, Arlington, Texas is a charming suburb located in the DFW Metroplex. Although flanked by the dynamic duo of Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington is a bustling hub of economic diversity in its own right.

The manufacturing, healthcare, retail trade, and finance and insurance industries are the foundation of Arlington’s steady economy. Three of the top employers in the area include General Motors, J.P. Morgan Chase, and GM Financial. Headquartered in Arlington proper, Texas Health Resources is also a top employer.

Centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington offers easy access to the urban lifestyle while retaining a suburban feel. Now, factor in reasonable real estate prices and a lower cost of living. This makes Arlington attractive to new businesses. The proof is in the large number of tech-related companies that have recently set up shop. Some of the fastest growing companies with Arlington offices include First Rate, c-Systems Software, PBS Systems, and Trinity Software.

Areas that attract new businesses are also a draw for job seekers. Arlington’s growing technology sector has directly affected the job market. The need for sales and marketing professionals has increased. When you search job listings, many companies have positions in creative and design they need to fill. And staffing companies are scrambling to find people with IT development and engineering experience.

That’s probably one of the reasons you’re here on the Talent Scout site. Your business has grown. And you’re looking for creative staffing solutions. Good news: You’re exactly where you need to be.

Talent Scout is an Arlington, TX staffing agency alternative with a unique recruiting system.

Our recruiting team has access to a global network of experienced freelance talent. By tapping into Upwork’s worldwide marketplace, your Talent Scout recruiter can connect you with pre-screened, in-demand professionals. In less than a week, you’ll receive a shortlist of top-tier talent ready to take on your project. And we do this without the expensive price tag of a traditional staffing agency. 

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

When independent business owners and professional freelancers search for job opportunities, they turn to Upwork. And when clients work with Talent Scout, an Arlington staffing agency alternative, the doors open wide to this high-level talent pool. You’ll make valuable connections with experienced professionals with backgrounds in design and creative, marketing, and IT development.

Staffing solutions for marketing

As technology takes over the world, the demand for tech-savvy sales and marketing professionals has skyrocketed. Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding areas are hotbeds for tech-centric talent. A partnership with Talent Scout recruiters gives you access to both local and global contractors at the top of their fields.

From social media marketers and SEO specialists to digital marketers and email campaign specialists, your Talent Scout recruiter will connect you with the talent that best fits your specific project goals. You may even connect with an independent contractor who’s worked with Dallas-based Omni Hotels and Resorts or Pomerenke Holdings, one of the fastest growing businesses in the Arlington area.

Staffing solutions for design and creative

Are you looking for a project-based contractor with web design skills? Or maybe you need a part-time copywriter for a monthly blogging gig. Even if you need a UX/UI designer for a long-term assignment, Talent Scout can find a perfect fit.

During your initial consultation, your Talent Scout recruiter will take the time to get a clear idea of the project’s scope and the skill sets you need. Industry experience and insight, plus a huge base of both local and global talent, help our recruiting team move quickly and efficiently. In less than a week you’ll have several independent contractors to choose from. You may even connect with a freelance art director who’s done work for the premium outlet malls in Grand Prairie or Houston.

Staffing solutions for information technology

Arlington’s proximity to Dallas, a nerve center for high tech companies, adds a level of depth to the available talent in the in-demand IT sector. This is beneficial for having choices but can easily overwhelm a human resources department. Let Talent Scout recruiters do all the resume reading, background checking, and certification verifying for you.

Your Talent Scout recruiter will create a profile based on the skills you need. We make sure qualified candidates have the hard skills required for complex IT projects. Whether you need a machine learning developer, DevOps engineer, or full stack developer, the Upwork network has who you need. Our recruiters also screen for important soft skills: effective communication, problem-solving, time management, and teamwork.

Use Talent Scout to Find an Arlington, TX Freelancer

Home to the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers, and Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington is considered a regional entertainment hub. Home to one of the largest work marketplaces in the world, Upwork is considered a global hub for freelanced-based talent.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between Talent Scout and an Arlington, TX staffing agency?

As an alternative to the typical Arlington staffing agency, Talent Scout connects local businesses with project-driven talent quickly and efficiently. If you need a temporary freelancer for a one-time project, Talent Scout can help. Even if you’re looking for someone to work on a long-term project, we make the connection. Unlike typical staffing agencies, our independent contractors are used to working remotely and don’t expect to be hired as a full-time employee.

After gathering information about your project, your recruiter will deliver a shortlist of freelancers best suited for the work. And, you’ll have a list of qualified candidates in less than a week.

Traditional staffing agencies can take four weeks or longer to find the right fit and you’ll pay a lot more. It’s standard practice for temporary employment agencies to markup costs by 75%.
