Recruitment Services for Startups and High Growth Firms

Our experienced team will immediately be ready to step into your business to create or enhance the recruitment process.

An Alternative Solution To Traditional Agencies

For Start up and Medium sized firms looking to expand into new regions, where they do not have a local recruitment capability, or for newly established market entrants that are growing rapidly, Research Partners offer an alternative solution to using traditional agencies or hiring contract recruiters.

Unique Pricing Model

The cost of using our service can be more impactful for a smaller organization. Our service is white-labelled, which means that our recruiters become embedded in your business, operating under your brand, as an extension to your in-house team. We are not tied to a specific number of requisitions we support. We adjust our focus based on your internal needs.

We offer a fixed monthly cost, which is how you can lower your cost per hire and avoid expensive placement fees.

The benefits

By using Research Partners, you will benefit by gaining expertise and capacity. Smaller businesses may not have an HR team, so line managers are responsible for their own recruitment. For a line manager to drive the entire process that reaches the point of hire, such as writing job specs and managing agencies, is very time consuming and takes them away from their actual role.

Even with an HR team in place, recruitment takes time, effort and expertise to do a good job, and the bulk of the work can still end up back with line managers.

Smaller businesses cannot always afford the overhead of a full-time recruiter. By using Research Partners, you avoid the costs of hiring your own recruitment team. You can also scale the usage as required, and alternate recruiters based on region, language skills or functional specialism, to match business demand.

Recruitment is a skilled activity, from identifying candidates, engagement and selection, to managing the process of a successful hire. By using Research Partners, you are bringing in recruiting experts. That means your recruitment is going to be done better than you are able to with limited internal resources, as well as hiring better people too.

How it works

We don’t charge any commission. The focus remains on quality, but delivered at a lower, transparent cost. This makes it easier to forecast your recruitment budget much more accurately, than for a traditional recruitment agency. Our recruiters can work as a full-time or a part-time member of your team, for as long as you need them and can be scaled up or down according to monthly needs.

Our unique pricing model means you pay a set monthly fee for our recruiters to seamlessly integrate with your in-house talent team.

By using our 360 Recruitment Service you will have exclusivity over a recruiter or team of recruiters that you can align anytime by regional or functional capability. We can build a comprehensive solution that can manage the entire recruitment life-cycle, or you can selectively use our expertise when and where your business needs it most.

Geographic Research Capability

Our team can also be put together taking into account the geographic reach of our client, with our research capability spanning across Europe, Asia and the US. Read More
