Growth through Talent

Elevate Q4 Success with Pivotal's Talent Solutions

 1st Nov 2023

As the critical Q4 period approaches for businesses and retailers, marketers are gearing up for the most significant shopping events of the year: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas.

Sectors such as retail, fashion & travel face a surge in online sales.

According to the Retail Gazette, 63% of UK Shoppers, increasing to 67% globally, plan to spend as much or more during BFCM weekend in 2023 compared to 2022.

In previous years, clients who waited to hire freelancer support a week before key shopping events generally struggled with securing the right skillset or an up to 25% uplift on day rates due to a decrease in talent availability.

Let's explore why making sure you have got the right team in place to capitalise on these events is critical and how adding Freelance Contract resources can be a great short-term solution:

  1. Meeting High Demand: As the retail, e-commerce, and fashion sectors gear up for a surge in campaign demands, gaining early insight into upcoming projects and securing sign-off now is crucial for shaping the months ahead. Pivotal offers current market insights and operates with an all-inclusive rate structure, guaranteeing the delivery of profiles that align with your budgetary needs.


  1. Scalability: Contractors offer businesses the agility to swiftly adjust their workforce in response to fluctuating needs. In the high-stakes environment of Q4, where demand is ever-changing, rapid hiring becomes essential to meet evolving client demands. Pivotal has a proven track record of providing prompt and efficient support, whether you require full-time or part-time contractors – we've got your back!


  1. Talent Availability: This is the moment for candidates to secure contracts that extend until year-end, as contractor availability typically declines by approximately 30% during this period. Pivotal collaborates closely with our clients to cultivate specialised talent pools, strategically positioning you for comprehensive market coverage and success.


  1. Reducing stress on full-time Employee: As this is the peak season for staff taking annual leave while productivity surges, introducing a swift solution can effectively distribute workloads, mitigating burnout risks and ensuring the well-being of your workforce.


  1. Onboarding: While the conventional setup time for candidates in the IT domain can extend up to two weeks, Pivotal operates with remarkable efficiency, boasting a one-week turnaround from the submission of CVs to successful placements. Our streamlined recruitment processes ensure a swift transition. Furthermore, our comprehensive, end-to-end cloud-based platform excels in seamlessly managing timesheets and mitigating risks, guaranteeing the compliance of freelancers with IR35 regulations.
