SKYPE was facing market pressures when trying to recruit critical technical talent. With a limited budget, Skype’s HR team needed to improve their candidate sourcing and development capabilities in order to achieve their hiring goals.

Skype is about breaking down the barriers to communication and we're doing it with technology that is inventive, dependable, easy to use and affordable. We're passionate about impacting the world and even more excited to be part of a new generation of brands that are revolutionising (and disrupting!) the 21st century.

I have worked with the UNITE team on several occassions in Search and all of our ventures have been successful and highly professional. With their help I was able to complete my development team with top performers, the process of defining, executing and closing the search was also done excellently. I can recommend UNITE Talent Solutions anytime and look forward to be working with them again in the future.

    UNITE worked with Skype to build a blended model of onsite services combined with offsite sourcing. This bespoke model provided Skype with the high-touch consultative value as well as the direct sourcing manpower needed to drive improved hiring results.
