New platform helps find recruiters who have suitable candidates and reduces placement fees
The web-based platform enables employers to save thousands in Placement Fees, offers broader exposure to the candidate market and discourages recruitment agents from submitting unsuitable candidates.
Businesses can post their job vacancies on WalkStraightIn.com for free and set the Placement Fee they are willing to pay a recruitment agent. Employers also set a Submission Fee which recruitment agents pay each time they put forward a candidate which discourages them from submitting individuals not suited to the vacancy. Any recruitment agent can submit candidates which gives employers huge exposure to the candidate market. It is free to advertise jobs on the platform, so if employers don't find a suitable candidate there's no fee to pay!
“There is a degree of frustration with recruitment agents, but often the easiest way to find the right people is through an agency. WalkStraightIn.com makes the process of finding recruiters with suitable candidates cheaper and more efficient” said Tom Breakell, co-founder and CEO of WalkStraightIn.com.
“We have developed this site to utilise resources offered by recruitment agencies while providing the very best results for employers. So far the initial response from employers has been extremely encouraging. There is now a solution for hiring managers who have been struggling to find suitable candidates.”
At WalkStraightIn.com, any recruitment agency can submit candidates providing they pay a Submission Fee for each individual they put forward. This means that agents are more likely to only submit candidates best suited for the position. This eliminates the need for old-fashioned preferred supplier lists which often offer limited exposure for the highly skilled individuals within the candidate market. The practice of using these preferred suppliers also maintains high Placement fees and does not discourage recruiting agents from putting people forward not suitable for the vacancy.
