5.What happens when i post an open job?
As soon as a job gets posted, it is published to all the recruiters. Matching Recruiters can then choose to 'Request an engagement with you' to work on your job.

Recruiters do not know who posted the job until you've approved them thus ensuring full confidentiality at all times. You have absolute control over your company information privacy, number of agencies to work for you, number of CV's you want to receive from each approved agency and so on!
6.How do you find high quality candidates?
Our recruiters are professionals with large networks of contacts. This gives us an extra large sample of quality referrals.
From these referrals we use our three step process:
Step-1: Recruiter Evaluation:
Recruiters typically submit their top candidates, they know they are in competition with other recruiters for quality candidates.
Step-2: CV Limit:
Each approved agency can only submit the number of CV's set by you at the time of posting the job thus ensuring quality avoiding submission of junk profiles.
Step-3: CV Review and update feedback:
Our ATS in-built in the platform enables you to Shortlist/Reject/Duplicate profiles submitted by agencies.
