What do IT recruitment agencies do?

Why collaborate with an IT recruitment agency?

Collaborating with an IT recruitment agency brings numerous benefits, including a shortened recruitment timeline, professional alignment of candidates with job requirements, access to a broad network of IT specialists, and optimal resource utilization, allowing a focus on key business activities. Additionally, an IT recruitment agency can assist the client in crafting a competitively positioned market offer, a crucial element in attracting top-tier professionals.

What are the differences between an employment contract and B2B?

The main distinction lies in the fact that employment contracts (UoP) are regulated by labor law, unlike B2B contracts, which fall under civil law. This means that certain rights and obligations, standard in employment contracts, are not automatically included in B2B contracts and can be negotiated between the employer and contractor. Additionally, it’s worth noting that B2B contracts may come with various tax benefits, as the employer is not required to cover additional costs, contributions, and other benefits.

Do you operate on a success fee basis?

Yes, our recruitment agency operates on a success fee basis. This means that the fee for our services is charged only in the event of a successful candidate placement.

Do you work in the RPO model?

Yes, we also offer services in the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) model. RPO is a strategic approach where the recruitment agency acts as an extension of the client’s HR department, managing selected or all aspects of the recruitment process. In the case of RPO, a subscription-based model applies, meaning that the recruitment agency charges a fixed, pre-established monthly fee.

What services does your IT recruitment agency offer?

Our IT recruitment agency provides the following services: Success Fee: Performance-based payment, where fees are only charged in the event of a successful candidate placement. RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing): We offer comprehensive management of the recruitment process, covering all stages from candidate identification to final selections. Through these services, we aim to effectively tailor our approach to the specific needs of our clients in the IT specialist recruitment field. In practice, the Success Fee model is well-suited for smaller recruitment volumes, while RPO serves as an efficient solution for larger-scale projects.

How does collaboration in the success fee model differ from the RPO model?

In the success fee model, the agency receives payment only upon the successful hiring of a candidate, typically in the form of a percentage of the new employee’s salary. Conversely, in the RPO model, the client pays the agency a fixed, pre-established monthly fee. The recruitment agency manages the client’s recruitment process on a broader scale, acting as an extension of their HR department.

What is the candidate replacement guarantee?

The candidate replacement guarantee means that in the event the candidate hired by our client leaves the position within a specified period from the date of employment, we will provide a free re-recruitment for the same position.

The verification process includes analyzing their experience, skills, and professional references. Our goal is to provide clients with high-quality and precisely matched candidates.

How long does it take to find a candidate?
