SKILLS DEVELOPMENT SOLUTIONS
Agile Skills Management
Improved data-driven decisions and outcomes.
At Nimble, we're not just managing skills but revolutionising how organisations approach workforce planning and development with our trademarked Agile Skills Management. In an era marked by rapid changes and evolving business needs, an agile approach to skills management is no longer a luxury—it's a necessity.
Why is Agile Skills Management essential?
As business environments become more dynamic, having an agile skills management system allows your organisation to respond rapidly to changes and seize new opportunities.
Resilience: Agile organisations can withstand shocks and disruptions, quickly redeploying resources where needed.
Agile Skills Management helps prevent overstaffing or understaffing and ensures the right skills are available at the right time.
Here's how we deliver Agile Skills Management:
Robust Digital Skills Inventory
We leverage technology and process optimisation to create a comprehensive digital inventory of skills within your organisation. This inventory includes employees and non-employees, enabling you to assign the most qualified individuals to projects quickly.
Data-Driven HR Augmentation
We augment your HR function by leveraging data and insights to inform recruitment, development, and retention strategies. This data-driven approach ensures that your talent management aligns with your business goals.
Multi-Sourcing Model for Procurement
By adopting a multi-sourcing model, we efficiently help procurement source talent from various channels. This diversified approach reduces dependency on any single source and broadens your access to skills.
Complementing Business Operations
Our service complements business operations by providing fast and accurate data for decision-making and business planning. Access to real-time skills data can accelerate project start times, enhance collaboration, and optimise resource allocation.
Agile Skills Management can deliver significant sourcing cost savings by ensuring efficient use of resources and reducing reliance on external recruitment agencies. Our clients typically see over 20% sourcing cost savings.
Pitfalls to avoid:
An agile approach requires a cultural shift. Organisations that resist change or fail to fully commit to the agile approach may not reap its benefits.
Lack of Communication
Agile Skills Management requires constant communication and collaboration. A lack of open communication channels can hinder the effective implementation of this approach.
Not Training Staff
Agile is not just a system—it's a mindset. Training staff to think and operate agilely is critical to successful Agile Skills Management.
At Nimble, we're not just your service provider—
we're your partner in optimising your most valuable asset: your talent.

Audit & Governance
Nimble understands the weight and complexity of compliance in today's rapidly evolving legal and regulatory environment. It's not just about adhering to rules - it's about weaving compliance into your business strategy and daily operations, specifically within your talent acquisition ecosystem.
Our team provides unbiased, third-party auditing services that go beyond surface-level checks. We delve into your systems, processes, and partnerships to ensure adherence to pricing standards, business insurance requirements, labour laws, and other critical programme policies. We don't just find potential non-compliance issues; we offer strategic recommendations to address them effectively. Here's how we support compliance in your business:
Every sector has unique compliance needs and risk tolerances. Whether you're in financial services, healthcare, or another industry, we tailor our services to align with your unique context.
We conduct thorough audits of your operations, supply chain, and your Managed Service Provider (MSP), where applicable. Our goal is to identify any compliance gaps and provide actionable solutions.
Advanced Analytics and Foresight
We don't just identify current compliance issues; we anticipate future challenges. Using our advanced analytics capabilities and foresight, we empower you to address compliance concerns before they become problems proactively.
Compliance with critical regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), IR35 legislation, Agency Workers Regulations (AWR), and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) is vital. We help you navigate these complex regulations and ensure full compliance.
Laws and regulations are constantly changing. We inform you of the latest changes and their implications for your business.
In the complex world of compliance, what you don't know can hurt you. We're here to uncover and address what you might need to realise you're missing. Trust Nimble to ensure that your talent acquisition ecosystem is compliant and primed for sustainable success.
TALENT ACQUISITION SOLUTION DESIGN
Determining your organisation's talent acquisition (TA) strategy requires a comprehensive understanding of available options. Our role is to guide you in creating a bespoke business case tailored to surpass your company's goals and objectives.
The conventional models of Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) are becoming relics of the past as new business models emerge, driven by process refinement and technological innovation.
Why the shift in business models? The answer is simple - a lack of GENUINE INNOVATION.
Emerging hybrid models blend the best aspects of both in-sourcing and outsourcing with the adaptability of human skills and technology, a fusion scarcely seen in our industry's history.
We're here to either ENHANCE your existing TA programme or BUILD it from scratch.
We RECRUIT. We EDUCATE. We NURTURE.
We then TRANSFER these TA specialists to your team!
We CONTINUE to SUPPORT and STEER your business into the future.

Insights are the catalysts for informed business decisions. We employ data strategically to fine-tune talent management and control costs. While technological advancements provide visibility, a key question remains: how can organisations refine their data to ensure its cleanliness, accessibility, and utility in driving value, sustainability, and generating profits?
In the modern business environment, merely collecting data isn't enough. Effective data management requires organisations to aggregate, analyze, and apply this data in ways that reveal trends, identify potential issues, and uncover new opportunities. This involves ensuring data quality, integrating disparate data sources, and deploying advanced analytics tools and techniques.
Nimble’s analytics services empower organisations to evolve and distinguish themselves from competitors. We develop global and local solutions, ensuring they align with your specific workforce priorities and strategies.
Every organisation has unique goals and challenges, so we take the time to understand your needs before designing a tailored data and analytics strategy. This could involve anything from optimizing your talent acquisition processes to enhancing employee engagement, reducing turnover, or identifying skills gaps in your workforce.
In every case, our goal is to help you use your data more effectively, turning raw information into actionable insights that can drive your business forward. Our analytics services aren't just about crunching numbers – they're about delivering tangible outcomes that support your strategic objectives and contribute to your overall growth.

RFx processes are critical for making informed, effective decisions. Yet, they often present challenges to businesses needing more time, resources, or expertise to manage them efficiently — Nimble bridges this gap, offering real innovation for everyday challenges.
Our non-biased RFx source library is a valuable resource for talent acquisition leaders, and our approach simplifies and streamlines the traditional RFx process. Here's how we do it:
RFI - Request for Information
This is the first step, intended to educate by gathering general information about the capabilities of various vendors. Our team leverages its industry knowledge to ask the right questions, ensuring that all crucial information is obtained.
RFQ - Request for Quote
This process quantifies the costs involved. We help clients interpret and compare quotes, considering hidden costs and long-term financial implications.
RFP - Request for Proposal
This step allows us to compare the different solutions available on the market. Our team aids in crafting a clear, comprehensive RFP and evaluating responses, ensuring you choose the vendor best suited to your needs.
RFS - Request for Solutions
We encourage innovation in this final stage. We help articulate unique business challenges and invite creative, practical solutions from potential vendors.
By managing and guiding these processes, Nimble minimises the hassle and maximises efficiency. But we don't stop at process management – we also help evaluate responses, negotiate with vendors, and make the final selection. Our assistance lets clients make informed decisions that lead to successful, cost-effective solutions.
