This is Harry

Harry’s startup has recently received funding and they’re growing like no tomorrow. The team wants to build not recruit, but they know they need to fill certain roles asap. This is where LevelUp comes in 🙂

Recruitment Process Outsourcing

You want to start hiring today, but you are busy building your company as well… How are you going to do this efficiently? LevelUp will help you out! We will work from your office for a longer period of time – taking away all the hassle of recruitment. That means that we will represent you the best way possible. We iterate often, prioritize and execute on the (ever changing) hiring plan. We set up processes, brand your company and introduce cool tools that make life easy!

  • In-house recruiting, understanding your culture and employer brand
  • Setting up processes for future talent needs

Talent Search

Imagine you just received your Series A funding and need to recruit a team of developers asap! Where are you going to find them? As a boutique recruitment firm, we will get you your hard-to-hire talent. Aligning your talent needs and our way of working with modern day methods (e.q. We don’t only use LinkedIn) makes us highly successful. We deploy a multidisciplinary team in sourcing and our referral network to find, select & match the right person for your company. Working from your office at least 1 day a week to let us fully align and iterate with you all the time. This helps you and we like it as well 😉

  • Trusted hiring partner on the table throughout the whole process
  • Extensive network to leverage for high quality candidates  

Executive Search

These are the hardest ones for founders. Who do we need in our team? You have a general idea, but not 100% clear on what exactly this C-Level person needs to bring to the table. LevelUp will dive into your company: interviewing the team, the founders and investors. Abstracting all the information things become crystal clear for you to know who to hire. Also, you might learn a thing or two about your own company!

  • In-house recruiting, understanding your culture and employer brand
  • Setting up processes for future talent needs

What is your fee structure?

When using RPO, we will determine the number of hours your new LevelUp colleagues will join and work in your office every week. This depends on what you want and is a more customized approach as we see it. Our pricing model for RPO is €70/hr + a success fee of € 1.500 per hire.

For Talent Search, the hiring cost is 20% of a year salary; 10% is paid upfront and 10% when your new tech team member is hired. From moment 0 we commit ourselves for and to you. Fully! That means we don’t do NCNP (no-cure-no-pay agency work).

An hourly fee of €80/hr and 7% of salary upon hire is used for the Executive Searchusually resulting in <20% hiring cost of salary.

How many hours per role do you typically spend/expect?

For a full talent search, we expect to spend around 70hrs for tech roles up to around 160 hrs for specific C-level roles.

Why would I choose you over a recruiting agency?

Great question and one that we’re asked a lot.

4 reasons:

1) We work closer with you, iterate faster, meaning faster & better success;

2) We create a talent pool for you, meaning all relations we build between you and the talent will be useful going forward;

3) Although we ask for upfront fee in hours, the cost as a % of salary is significantly lower, typically 15-18% of yearly salary

4) We are Growth Hackers, using Machine Learning on vacancies, email A/B tests, personalized drip campaigns and AI Sourcing to ensure the best profiles.
