Why we partnered with Source-Code...

Walking the balance between being truly independent and having market-leading partnerships to call upon is never easy but I hope I have found the balance. 

As you will have seen from my recent blogs I am building DANGERFIELD into a fully fledged consulting business to compete with Accenture’s of the world.  To achieve this, I am developing partnerships, a set of point solutions that enable me to say yes to more opportunity, whilst maintaining my reputation and integrity.  They also give greater opportunity for future DANGERFIELD consultants to engage on larger pieces of work than would otherwise have been possible.  I am building a business that will help consultants develop longer, deeper more sustainable business relationships long after their own consulting engagement has been completed.

One of the more recent additions to the DANGERFIELD portfolio is Source-Code.

As an introduction, Source-Code is a new age recruiting company which specialises in providing ‘hire ready’ software developers from Central & Eastern Europe to tech companies around Europe. Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland they have built a presence across Central and Eastern Europe delivering two key services, the second of which is probably more interesting to me than the first.

The first key offering is using technology to attract technical candidates to employers.  They do it in a really transparent way, detailing who you will work for both in terms of the organisation but even individuals.  Much of recruitment in this space is still hidden in a veil of smoke and mirrors unless you have some decent solid relationships like Source-code have. 

The second key offering is more interesting to me.  Having worked with and advised organisations on how to attract and hire talented individuals in central europe with a view to relocation it’s good to have options when that starts not to work.  This time last year I was in Krakow at a moment it was starting not to work, despite great success in Budapest and Bucharest only a couple of months before.  I met Source-Code MD Glen at a talk I was doing for Enterprise Ireland who explained some of the successes they had had.  

Where Source-Code comes to the rescue is to hire locally and keep support businesses in building their own nearshored development centres in Prague, Bratislava and Kiev.  This gives clients options, certainly, when it comes to hiring in-demand skills, this flexibility enables a business to continue to develop, even if they are struggling to hire locally.  Source-Code identifies and hires all the main programming languages across backend, frontend and mobile and because of their scaled platform approach are significantly lower cost than working with a recruitment agency.

Of course, Source-Code is just one of the global partners DANGERFIELD work with, to find out more about our end to end recruitment solution stack go to our PARTNERS page.

DANGERFIELD will never be Accenture, but we can deliver Accenture like projects in terms of scale and global reach.  We can create new ways to recruit putting humanity into a.i. developing large-scale hiring plans anywhere in the world, delivered with confidence, passion and pride.
