Headhunting for startups

The talent you want to hire is likely to belong in the passive candidates group. Passive candidates aren’t actively browsing job portals, nor do they care about your job adverts. And why should they – they’re already busy with work.

To find the best candidates, and get their attention, it’s necessary to do headhunting.

What is headhunting?

Headhunting is a process where we map out a candidate profile. We’ll consider the desired skills and the values the person you want to hire must carry.

Based on the data above, our recruiters conduct thorough talent sourcing. We’ll carefully choose and contact only the most relevant candidates via different channels.

Because there’s no active job advert, you’ll only have relevant candidates coming into your pipeline. All this buys you time to make your startup succeed.

Our headhunting process

This 30-minute call helps us get to know each other. We will ask about your recruitment needs, and you can find out how we work.

In the second call, we will map out a candidate profile. Based on that, we will put together a tailored recruitment strategy.

Once the contract is signed, the work starts for our recruiters.

Using innovative recruitment methods, we will start searching for candidates for you.

Together with you, we will validate candidates and interview them.

The final step includes making an offer to the selected candidate(s).

Answers to your questions

We hire any type of roles your start-up needs, from developers, data, or product managers, to back-office, to C-level managers. 

Our pricing method depends on the complexity of the role, as well as the volume of recruitment. You will find out the projected price of your desired recruitment project in our introductory call, assuming you already know what your candidate profile is and how many candidates you want to hire. Generally, the price of the recruitment project is connected to the hired candidate’s salary.

The length of the recruitment project depends on the complexity of the role, the speed of the interviews as well as feedback. On average, the process (from the first client meeting to the candidate’s first working day) takes about 2-3 months. In some instances, where the desired candidate doesn’t accept your job offer, the process could take longer.

Yes. Although our main service is recruiting, we offer our existing partners other services, such as HR consulting, salary studies, employer branding, etc. That is the additional value we bring to the table – we are a recruitment agency that helps and assists you in other areas if needed.

In case of the hired candidate resigning from the job within four months, we will offer a replacement candidate without a placement fee.

First and foremost, we are headhunters – we track down people on different platforms and contact them ourselves. Depending on the recruitment strategy, we also do landing pages and job advertisements. Additionally, we have our own extensive talent pool (lists of previously headhunted candidates for previous roles).

We mostly work with start-ups that are in the high-growth phase and are looking for a long-term recruitment partner.

Let's find the right talent for you.
