Recruiting Agencies, Staffing Service Firms and Vendors
Q. I represent a search firm and would like to submit a candidate for consideration. What are the next steps?
Southern Company Gas tends to work with recruiters and staffing service firms that have specialized areas of focus. Southern Company Gas only accepts resumes from search firms that have executed services agreements with Southern Company Gas and were requested to partner on a specific search. Southern Company Gas will have no obligation or liability to search firms for unsolicited referrals, even if Southern Company Gas hires the individual who was the subject of the referral.
Q. How can I get my search firm added to the list of potential suppliers?
Review the Supplier Information page and follow the steps provided. Please be patient. We value those who partner with us effectively and return to those search firms first when a need for additional support is identified. Work with us, not around us. All communication with Southern Company Gas should be directed only to talent acquisition personnel. Direct contact with hiring managers and other department personnel typically results in miscommunication and delays in the process.
Q. How does Southern Company Gas assign my firm to a job opening?
Not every job opening requires search firm support. After your firm executes an Southern Company Gas services agreement – and if the job opening is in your area of expertise – talent acquisition personnel will provide a position request as needed. Position requests are sent to firms focused on recruiting candidates specific to the designated opening.
Q. I represent a background check company, assessment provider, and/or have other services to enable improvements in the talent acquisition process. How can I be considered?
Please review the Supplier Information page and follow the steps provided. Send an email to TalentAcquisition@southernco.com,and it will be routed to the appropriate person for a response.
