What To Expect From Us

We provide visible value

The economic value of our services is outstanding. We make it visible to clients. Our premium service, recruitment online, is an open book approach to professional service delivery.  Clients can see what we are doing for them in real time. The status of every job in their account is visible 24/7.

The end result of our modern approach is clients  are paying less than half of traditional recruiting fees. With SmartWorker, you know exactly what you are paying for. 

The value of services can be hard to see in any profession. We have gone to great lengths to make our services visible to every client. What you see is what you get!

We collaborate with you.

Collaboration is a big part of our philosophy. We work as part of your team while bringing our own expertise to the table. Our tools may be the best available right now. That doesn't mean we don't know that communication is key when it comes to finding the perfect fit.

Collaborative recruiting, where the hiring manager and the consultant share the same goal. We collaborate to choose the best of the best from a market-wide talent pool. We have proven it to be a superior method of recruiting to make a work team stronger – and that’s exactly what we do.

Flexible customisation of services.

We know every recruiting job is a little different. Often, you’ll find that our baseline ‘end-to-end’ service is exactly what you need. Sometimes you may want a tighter process. That may mean cutting out some of the services. Or, including some DIY work from your end. Even getting us on board for steps you wouldn’t normally entrust to recruiters. We can customise your experience to the letter.

Advanced yet easy-to-use tools.

We have developed unique technology (international patent pending) to make recruiting more streamlined. Our customers have access to tools for the visualisation and comparison of candidates. It adds a new dimension, giving a holistic view of candidates and a high-speed review.

We work hard to build an honest relationship.

Transparency is key – we don’t believe in keeping secrets. That’s where our collaborative platforms come in handy. With online communication at our fingertips, it would be silly not to make the most of it!

So what do we share with you? The short answer is “everything”! We let you in on all our comments about the job and the candidates. All backed by data and findings that we log in Syft for you to view. This means you can use our knowledge to make an educated hiring choice!

Comprehensive scanning of the market.

We agree on the scope of the market scan. Our outbound scan includes job board advertising, social advertising, social messaging. Plus options for looking into including internal candidates or any staff referrals. You have full visibility of the market scan we do for you hire. You can feel confident knowing that we have used all our tools, networks and connections. It's a modern recruitment strategy to unearth all potential talent.

Full engagement of the market builds the strongest talent pool possible. Our inbound scan strategy is SmartWorker’s global ripple search. Start with local networks and reach out to global databases. Our marketing techniques include the appropriate social channels, proven online media. We even design custom career mini sites for larger projects.

We are on the job and you are fully informed.

The hiring managers we work with usually take an active role in the strategic part of the assignment. Getting the job definition right. Getting the salary band correct and, of course, the final selection.

The transactional part of the job is usually left to the experts with the right skills and the tools: us. As an cheap and efficient outsource partner, you can trust us to handle the little details. We handle the time-consuming.

The SmartWorker ‘Bonus Play’.

If you engage us to build a talent pool for a role its your. If you decide you need more than one person from the pool. You can hire them without any extra charges. We have already done the work, after all!

We are Syft Platform Certified.
