Your Atlanta staffing agency alternative

You don’t need a recruitment agency for marketing, design, or IT staffing services in the Atlanta area. Sourcing qualified candidates is as simple as discussing your needs with a knowledgeable and experienced Talent Scout recruiter. Our recruiters have access to the most talented job seekers with years of experience, and unlike many top staffing agencies, they’re vetted through a rigorous certification process. 

Talented freelancers are drawn to Atlanta’s thriving economy. Atlanta’s flourishing industries include financial technology, distribution, advanced manufacturing, and healthcare information technology. Georgia and the Atlanta Metro Area support a variety of growing small businesses as well as giants, such as The Coca-Cola Company, Primerica, and Equifax. 

Atlanta is filled with experienced independent contractors looking for job opportunities, many of whom have graduated from top local universities, such as the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University. And you don’t need a recruiting agency to find them. Talent Scout can fill your staffing needs faster and easier than other recruiting services, leaving everyone with more time to explore Atlanta’s trails and parks, grab a bite on BuHi, or catch a Falcons game. 

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

With Talent Scout, you’ll have access to global talent as well as local Atlanta contractors. Whether you’re looking for a senior level, full-time placement, or entry-level freelancers for temporary staffing, Talent Scout can help you find talented professionals in the following fields:

  • Marketing: Creative directors, product marketing managers, content marketing specialists, and other marketing professionals are available through Talent Scout. These independent contractors may come with experience working with some of the top companies in Atlanta, such as The Home Depot and Delta Air Lines. 
  • Design and Creative: Whether you need a graphic designer, photographer, video editor, or other creative professional, skip the recruiting firms and let Talent Scout bring you a short list of freelancers in just days. Our recruiters can connect you with job seekers who have experience working with top Atlanta businesses, including Publix and Marriott International. 
  • IT and Software Engineering: You can find DevOps engineers, software architects, technical program managers, skilled computer technicians, and other tech-savvy contractors through Talent Scout. Independent professionals in Atlanta may have worked for companies such as SunTrust Bank and UPS. 

Use Talent Scout to find an Atlanta freelancer

If you’re looking to assemble a team in Atlanta, you may want to take some of the pressure off your human resources department and get help with staffing solutions. But before working with a staffing firm, consider the high fees and lengthy process. There’s a better and cheaper way to find talent in Atlanta, one that uses machine learning paired with highly experienced recruiters: Talent Scout. 

Upwork’s Talent Scout is the ideal solution for startups and established businesses alike to find professional freelancers at a fraction of the cost. It’s the quick, simple, and cost-effective way to find contractors who have both the hard and soft skills to succeed in the role you’re looking to fill, whether it’s in design, marketing, IT development, finance, legal, media, technology, or engineering

Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between Talent Scout and an Atlanta staffing agency?

Talent Scout is similar to an employment agency in that it is a source for a vetted and screened short list of talent. Talent Scout’s recruiters are experienced in the staffing industry and know how to find the skills and qualities you’re looking for in a freelancer. The difference? Unlike a recruitment company, Talent Scout is fast and affordable. It costs between 25% and 35% of what traditional employment services charge and can deliver quality options in just days instead of weeks. 

What’s more, Upwork’s global talent pool must pass skills certification testing to qualify for work through Talent Scout. You can find skilled freelance talent and save money on training. And you can expect a great experience with friendly and knowledgeable recruiters who work fast. Why wait months and spend unnecessary dollars on a staffing agency when Talent Scout can do the job more efficiently and for less?
