The Ministry of Justice needed some specialist freelancers, fast, to help deliver on innovative and transformational plans which would have a big impact on the Ministry. But in a climate where costs are in the spotlight, they didn’t want to pay above the odds.
Superstars was asked to fill the roles via the subscription model – meaning that the Ministry would get the people and results it needed, and the investment would be clear and fair, right from the outset.
So Steve Hutson and the team stepped in. Within six months, Superstars had become an integral part of the team and had found all 12 people: specialists in digital transformation, design and content. They were onboarded by the Ministry team, and set to work immediately.
By asking Superstars to fill these roles, the Ministry of Justice saved 20% of its recruiting costs. Even when the contract with Superstars finished, the Ministry was able to keep the contractors in these roles for a further two years, which led to huge savings.
No commissions, no margins. Just great results.
