London startup launches Europe's 'first ever' tech contractor recruitment platform
Selective recruitment provider talent.io has launched an online recruitment platform for technology contractors.
The one-of-its-kind platform accelerates the time to hire for both contractors and recruiters by providing access to the largest community of pre-qualified software developer contractors across Europe.
The technology recruitment process is often perceived as painful and difficult, encountering obstacles such as: hidden fees, the time and cost it takes to hire, convoluted processes, and how to select committed candidates from a wide pool of contractors.
John Hazelton, director of talent.io, said: “We are delighted to be launching our contractor’s platform in London which will change the face of technology recruitment by delivering transparency and simplicity to the industry, all at a very competitive price.
“In time of political and economic uncertainty with Brexit many companies are choosing to work with contractors on technology projects rather than recruiting internally to keep costs to a minimum.
“There is a large demand in the market for contractors on short term projects but it is difficult for employers to know who to target from the wide pool available.”
John added: “Our platform eradicates hidden fees giving you complete transparency from the offset. We strive to deliver simplicity with the contractors’ platform and all the administration, arranging interviews, billing and timesheets are delivered in a single end to end seamless solution.”
Anna Kerdivar, a technology contractor was recently recruited by SF Insuretech using the talent.io contractors’ platform, concluded: “The platform was so easy and transparent to use, I signed up for the platform and got a position on the same day with SF Insuretech.
“Usually it takes about two weeks but with talent.io I got a job in one day, and I have been offered a permanent position.”
