I am the CEO of my fifth start-up, but for the first time, I used an hourly contract recruiter rather than a success fee-based headhunter or relied on our own HR. The results were stellar, as we hired 20 superstars in sales, marketing, customer support, and product development.
Our contractor is sitting with the team at our offices and therefore knows exactly what characteristics to look for in identifying successful candidates for our company specifically. The quality of the candidates he presented to us was excellent.
He brought in top-notch professionalism to talent acquisition (at a low cost) and established a systematic and predictable recruitment process, with KPIs and tracking tools.
He proactively sourced talent using multiple channels. For example, he represented the company in various local networking events that he made recruiting events for us; he excited other team members to join as well.
Based on this success, we were able to work with King & Bishop and hire our contractor recruiter as an employee. I can highly recommend this approach.
