Your Dallas staffing agency alternative

Whether you’re a new tech start-up or an established business, you’re probably aware of the economic climate in north Texas. It’s growing. And it’s growing fast.

The trendy, cosmopolitan vibe of Dallas, combined with the laid-back cowboy-esque lifestyle of Fort Worth makes the Dallas-Fort Worth, or DFW, metroplex an enticing place to live and to build a business.

Top industries in the Dallas area include financial services, technology, and defense. The Fort Worth area is home to companies specializing in aviation and aerospace, oil and gas, and manufacturing. DFW is also a major healthcare hub. Notable healthcare resources include several prominent hospitals: Baylor University Medical Center, Parkland Memorial Hospital, and UT Southwestern Medical Center.

DFW’s diverse and growing economy is a huge draw for Fortune 500 companies. Corporate offices of big name brands like Toyota, healthcare giant McKesson Corp., and the world’s largest commercial real estate firm, CBRE Group Inc., have relocated from California.

The promise of continued growth in north Texas is also enticing to mid-size businesses and start-ups. Companies like Zeal IT Consultants and IT security companies like Island have grown exponentially. Fintech start-ups such as Lydia and Integrity Marketing Group are also among the fastest-growing businesses in north Dallas.

Why is this important for DFW businesses with increasing job opportunities? The pool of diverse and top-tier talent is more robust than ever.

To stay competitive and keep up, you’ve realized you need new talent. And you need it fast. That’s why you’re here. You came across Talent Scout and want to know what we can do to solve your staffing needs.

As a Dallas staffing agency alternative, Talent Scout offers streamlined staffing solutions. After an initial discovery meeting, Talent Scout recruiters dive into Upwork’s huge network of pre-vetted remote talent to find the candidates best suited for your specific project. With a traditional temp agency, this can take up to a month. Your Talent Scout recruiter will provide you with a shortlist of experienced, educated, and read-to-work freelancers in less than a week. And, at a lower cost than you’d pay a temporary staffing agency.

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

Job seekers in the Upwork marketplace come from a broad range of backgrounds. Our recruiting firm is a hub for independent business owners with years of experience. And we attract promising young talent. Many have digital arts degrees from the highly proclaimed University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson. We can also connect you with entrepreneurs who studied computer science at Texas A&M University in College Station.

Some of our clients need temporary staffing for one or two marketing projects. Others want to direct-hire a contractor who can work full-time on a software development project. Your Talent Scout recruiter will help you find the best fit for any job opportunities you have in marketing, design and creative, or the IT space.

Staffing services for marketing

Successful marketing campaigns need that special touch to capture people’s attention. For that, you need someone familiar with their audience.

Your Talent Scout recruiter can introduce you to freelancers who know that locals often refer to Dallas as Triple D, Fort Worth is known as CowTown, and Aggtown is a much-used nickname for Arlington. They’re aware that Trophy Club and Mansfield are affluent DFW neighborhoods. They understand why Texas Hill Country is synonymous with wine. And when mentioning a Dallas Cowboys home game, they’ll refer to Jerry World rather than AT&T Stadium.

Of course, if your marketing requires a broader stroke, our network of market strategists, social media marketers, SEO specialists, and email marketers reaches globally.

Staffing services for design and creative

Do you have open positions for temporary web designers, illustrators, video editors, or multimedia specialists? Let Talent Scout fill your staffing needs. Our pool of talent includes independent professionals with experience working with top Dallas companies. It’s possible that you’ll collaborate with someone who’s done work for Active Network, American Airlines, State Farm, or 7-Eleven. When you partner with Talent Scout, you’re guaranteed a hand-picked list of qualified candidates with a faster turnaround than a typical employment agency.

Staffing services for IT and software development

It can often take up to four weeks for a conventional IT staffing firm to locate the right fit. Maybe even longer if you need someone with experience in a specialized niche such as cloud automation, SQL database administration, or QA engineering.

With access to millions of independent contractors, your Talent Scout recruiter will find full-time or part-time remote talent with the experience you need. Depending on your requirements, you may find yourself engaging with information technology experts who have worked with Dallas-based supply-chain management software designer, O9 Solutions or Eyeful Media, one of the fastest-growing digital strategy and marketing agencies in the DFW metroplex.

Use Talent Scout to Find a Dallas Freelancer

The economy in Dallas is flourishing. Although that’s a good thing, that growth also equates to a more competitive job market. A hiring process that allows you to acquire new team members at scale can help you stay ahead of the game. A process that won’t tax your budget or bog you or your human resources department down with the things that go along with finding top talent. Things like sifting through resumes, playing phone tag with potential new hires, and checking references.

The experienced Talent Scout recruiters have already done the time-consuming sifting and sorting. Our contractors are pre-screened and ready to get started. This allows us to quickly source the most qualified marketing, design, and IT professionals for your needs.

The most efficient and cost-effective way to tap into this ever-growing network is to partner with the best Dallas staffing agency alternative. Contact a Talent Scout recruiter today.
