Dear [Awesome person],

They use part-time as a way to unlock the most incredible people who are normally hidden from the market.
It’s a great way for business owners to hire high level expertise with a lower budget because you only pay for the days you need.
Everyone on Beam is experienced and vetted which means you go straight to the best candidates. No time wasting.

4. Find a way to slip Beam into a conversation. Employers are simply everywhere. In the playground, at the cafe, at a birthday party. If someone starts talking to you about the stress of hiring, mention Beam! It’s that simple. Things to listen out for:
“I posted the role to a job board. So many people applied but no-one was great. Argh!”
“I don’t even know where to start with this job search…”
“I can’t afford a recruiter…”
“I’m drowning in my business. I need someone fast, but don’t have time to look. Oof.”
