Split Story: Contract Role Placements Add Up!

By Sarah Freiburger


Temp and contract deals continue to be a source of growing revenue for many members of our split placement network. Even if your firm doesn’t have a dedicated temp division, you can still fill contract roles. While the fee may seem meager compared to a hefty fee on a permanent placement’s yearly salary, the monthly fee for a temp/contract worker adds up, and adds to your bottom line.

Clients have come to rely on recruiters to provide top quality temp/contract candidates that meet their specific needs within a specified time limit – whether due to a merger, a project, or maternity leave. If they really like your candidate, a contract role can also lead to a permanent placement in the long run.

Take for example this recent placement between two Australian firms in the NPAworldwide network – a first placement for both of them!:

After joining the network in September, a new member specializing in white collar permanent recruitment received a request from colleagues about blue collar recruitment.

Instead of giving them the names of other agencies she knew of, she jumped on the phone with a staff member at the network, who referred her to another Australian firm that specialized in blue collar recruitment. She referred this firm to her client, a high-end builder who was needing a carpenter. The firm supplied a Carpenter in an ongoing temporary role with a view to go Permanent. “Without the network I would have simply referred my contacts and not received any income for it,” she said.

Not only did the referring firm branch out into the contract space, the firm who provided the candidate had the new opportunity of supplying into the niche market of high-end home building.

Lots of recruiters rely on contract work only, and some just use it as another tool in their arsenal of recruiting weapons. With a network of recruiters in various specialties and locations, it can make it much easier to add contract placements into your mix.

But if you just dump the rest of the candidates once the job order is filled, you may be missing out. As a recruiter, you’re flooded with applications and job orders, but it’s important to make sure those once-top contenders don’t fall through the cracks. Read the rest of this entry »

Glossary of Terms for Recruiter Training

By Veronica Scrimshaw

dictionary-recruiter-trainingHave you recently hired, or are planning to hire, a new recruiter? I stumbled upon a thorough glossary of terms that is a useful addition to your recruiter training program. Published by Qualigence International, The ULTIMATE Recruiter Handbook defines more than 150 terms that are frequently used within recruitment. Many of the terms are quite basic, so this is probably best-suited to recruiters who are brand-new to the business. The glossary is somewhat US-centric. Read the rest of this entry »
