The tools, knowledge, and support to help you achieve more
We’ve helped many businesses to build in-house capability and know exactly what it takes to get the best out of your internal operations. From recruitment of staff through to auditing and optimisation of ongoing operations, our services have been designed to help you maintain control as you drive for improvements in performance.
We'll help you answer questions such as whether to rely on digital agencies or bring everything in-house? Or what sorts of activities should be in-housed? Or how do we manage digital and people performance? We're on hand to support organisations across the journey in the creation of a first-class digital team.
Building a business case for in-housing
As part of building your capability we will help you to pull the business case elements together – from cost/benefit analysis and requirements gathering to transition planning and onboarding of the team.
Helping determine areas of operational improvement
Operational auditing is the first step in planning any journey is to understand where you’re starting from and where you want to get to. Our specialists will take an in-depth look at your digital operations to understand how you currently operate and uncover operational opportunities that might be passing you by. If you have aspirations to in-house your activity but haven't done so already, our team will be able to help you quantify and qualify the scale of resources that you’ll need. We spend time with you to understand how digital is currently executed, what tools and resources you’re using and how you’re using them. We’ll look at current digital performance levels against KPIs to discover risks and opportunities associated with building in-house capability.
Supporting the recruitment of digital talent
Finding talent can be the hardest part of any in-housing operation. Creating attractive roles that fit the needs of the candidate as well as the needs of the business can be tricky. Our recruitment services provide the expertise needed to vet the suitability of candidates. We’re there to support you from start to finish, from role development to sourcing and placing the right people. Our team will help you to define the roles, find the talent and get them interviewed, selected and on board as quickly and smoothly as possible. We can then help with on-boarding and provide ongoing training and support. Our range of training services can plug any identified skill gaps that might be holding you back. Conducted either at your office or at ours, our training programs are designed to address your specific requirements.
Assistance in understanding how a current team is operating
A transition plan is essential for building an in-house team. We can help to optimise how your team currently works. Efficient and effective resource allocation is critical to digital success. We’ll help you to understand the capabilities of your team, how they spend their time, and then to formulate an improvement plan to help you hit your objectives. Internal and external sharing of best practice, learning new skills and methodologies, and keeping abreast of digital developments – all of these are essential to keeping the team functioning at top notch and ensuring that team retention is as high as possible. Our ongoing consultancy and support services can help with strategic planning, interim cover for staff absence, team development and management, reporting and analysis and more.
Interim support for digital teams
Whether you are transitioning in-house or experiencing a resource shortfall, our team can step in and manage your digital activity for you until you’re ready to take back control.
Sense checking of strategic plans and objectives
Strategic thinking and planning can really open up digital opportunities. Our involvement can help your team focus on management actions while we do some heavy lifting with the planning.
Innovation and ideas sessions to keep staff motivated
In-house teams are more at risk of isolation and stagnation. They don’t always have as much access to external ideas and innovation as agency staff. But that shouldn’t mean that they miss out. At Fresh Egg we recognise that sometimes the best support we can give you is to listen and advise. Giving your teams access to experienced peers keeps them focused, current in their knowledge, and helps to inspire confidence.
What our clients say about our in-housing services
“Fresh Egg has been working with us to identify areas of development for our in-house digital marketing team. The focus has been to work collaboratively with multiple stakeholders across disciplines to develop an understanding of core requirements to support continued significant growth.“
Mike Collins, managing director at Tropical Sky
“Recruiting into digital roles can often be difficult, time consuming and hard to navigate. We recently had a requirement to find a candidate to join our marketing team with a remit to drive our paid search activity. Fresh Egg provided support from helping to scope the required roles through to assisting with interviews to allow us to assess the technical compentency of candidates. The recent successful work to help build out our own in-house digital capability has been vital.“
