Position: Sourcer

About Sourcing

Sourcers are critical to the success of iPlace and our clients. Sourcers assist our clients’ recruiters by scouring the Internet like a detective to find the best candidates for open jobs. Our sourcers enable the recruiters they support to spend more time with candidates and hiring managers, and thereby make more and higher-quality placements. You will help your clients be successful by identifying great candidates for their companies and help the candidates to grow professionally, support themselves, and provide for their families. As an iPlace sourcer, you will gain exposure to international business and develop valuable research skills.

Position Description

Hiring Process

iPlace Talent Acquisition team calls selected candidates and if interested, sends an email with the interview schedule.


Phone Interview: We screen candidates to learn about their background and interests, career goals, and abilities to excel as a sourcer.


In-Person Assessments: Candidates who clear the phone screen spend a half-day at iPlace where they will undergo assessments measuring their English communication, listening, written, client-centricity, phone, and computer capabilities. Candidates clearing the assessments continue to a one-on-one interview with a business unit head. During this interview, candidates will be evaluated on their eagerness to learn and grow professionally, openness to feedback, interest in business, and preparation demonstrated through researching iPlace and our industry, and knowing why they want to be a sourcer.


Same-Day Hiring Decision: Offers are made before the candidate leaves iPlace’s office. Offers are contingent on candidates clearing background and reference checks and providing previous employment and other documents (Aadhaar card, address proof, verification of payslips and relieving letters, and completion of exit procedures).
