I offer fractional Recruitment Consulting Services for growing organizations, providing strategic talent acquisition solutions to effectively navigate through growth stages - Nathan Li

Nathan is a seasoned Recruitment Advisor and Consultant who is deeply committed to facilitating successful connections between exceptional candidates and outstanding companies. With a strong passion for optimizing talent acquisition processes, Nathan strives to assist candidates in discovering their ideal career opportunities while aiding organizations in securing top-notch employees.



I provide comprehensive talent acquisition mapping and planning services aligned with your growth goals in order to identify and target the right candidates. This involves understanding your hiring needs, assessing current workforce gaps, and creating tailored plans to attract and retain top talent.


I understand the importance of hiring top-tier talent to drive your business forward. I utilize a variety of sourcing channels and recruitment strategies to attract and recruit the best talent in the industry for you. I leverage my industry knowledge and networks to ensure that your organization is positioned as an employer of choice and that your brand is effectively communicated to potential candidates.


My strategic sourcing services are designed to help you identify, attract, and hire top talent while minimizing recruitment costs and reducing time-to-hire. My expertise will help you identify active and passive candidates who may not be actively seeking new opportunities but are likely to be the right individual who aligns with your culture and are a good fit with your organization.


I will streamline your entire recruitment process and funnel to ensure that it is efficient and effective, giving candidates the best interview experience from the top to the bottom of the funnel. I conduct a thorough review of your recruitment process and identify areas for improvement, providing you with customized recommendations and solutions to optimize your recruitment process. This may involve streamlining workflows, implementing technology solutions, improving candidate experience, and ensuring compliance with relevant hiring regulations.


I will work closely with you and other stakeholders involved in the hiring process to ensure a seamless recruitment process while prioritizing top-notch candidate service. I ensure that hiring managers are well-informed at every stage, enabling them to make informed decisions. Simultaneously, I maintain a candidate-centric approach, ensuring their needs and concerns are addressed promptly. By balancing the needs of hiring managers and candidates, I strive to create a recruitment process that is efficient, effective, and delivers exceptional results.


I offer a flexible, and cost-effective solution for you, where you may not have the resources or workload to justify a full-time, in-house recruiter. To do this, I will embed myself into your organization and work on a part-time engagement, dedicating a set number of hours per week or month to your organization to meet your ever-changing requirements. This accommodates fluctuations in recruitment demands, allowing you to ramp up or down as necessary without the complexities of managing a full-time Recruiter.
