TheJobPost launches the worlds first supplier engagement platform to offer a contract solution
This unique service follows the same principles of TheJobPost’s permanent offering, with the added benefits of providing complete payroll and contract compliance, enabling any recruiter to provide a contract service regardless of pre-existing capability.
Leveraging the ever-increasing power of the Cloud and crowdsourcing techniques, TheJobPost has responded to the demands of the ever changing world of work. In the UK alone, the Professional Contractors Group estimates that there are already 1.4 million British independent contractors working across all sectors, and this is only increasing as more employers leverage the benefits of technology and top talent demand ever more flexible working.
Employers are wholeheartedly embracing this type of online platform the engagement process is simple and the results are rapid. In line with TheJobPost’s permanent offering, the agency pays a small access fee (typically between £25 and £100, based on the total profit margin of the contract) to submit a CV and has direct contact with the employer.
Once the successful candidate has been appointed, TheJobPost takes care of contractor payments and pays the margin direct to the agency every week (regardless of the existence of pay when paid terms).
Ken Brotherston of TheJobPost says, “We are delighted to be the first to extend our online supplier engagement platform to support contract hiring, ensuring that employers and recruiters are quickly matched to access top contract talent, which are more often than not those with hard to find skills.”
One of TheJobPost’s early users of the service, Rachel Dow, talent acquisition partner at HCL Workforce Solutions, commented, “TheJobPost’s contract offering has given us access to a pool of recruiters that we would never have found. They offer a very efficient and effective service and have managed to fill both permanent and temporary vacancies for me that I would otherwise have struggled with due to time constraints. It is a no lose situation for an employer, it’s quick, simple and the quality of hire is great.”
