More info: How does freelance recruiting work with Kooku?

With this recruiting service, our freelance recruiters work directly on-site or remotely with our clients and help them find the right person for open vacancies. In every area of the recruiting process, the client is supported in-house, from the planning of the job advertisement, to direct search of the right candidate, to the hiring of the new employee.

In this way, specific questions on a wide range of areas such as your positions, the ideal structure of the recruitment process or on specific candidates can be clarified directly with our interim recruiter without delay. This not only makes the hiring process more transparent for you, but also greatly speeds it up. This allows us to work together flexibly and efficiently on the personnel development of your company.

Through HR Interim Recruiting, our specialists are therefore directly on site and can focus entirely on the requirements of your company. As part of your team, we work closely together to master the challenges of modern recruiting management.

More info about Freelance Recruiting:

Freelance Recruiting means to support a company directly on site for a certain period of time either by taking over the recruiting completely or by complementing the existing HR team.

As a freelance recruiter, our employees will support your team on-site or remotely and support you and the team over an extended period of time. In addition to sourcing candidates, the entire pipeline can be managed – right through to recruitment. Furthermore, we advise the team with our expertise from the market. Contact us if you have any questions.

Our employees receive dedicated training and accompanying “on-the-job” training on topics such as direct search/active sourcing, interviewing, Qrganization and project management. This, together with uniform, long-established recruiting processes, enables us to ensure consistent recruiting quality.

With external recruiters, you often encounter problems such as long response times and a lack of transparency. Our freelance recruiters, on the other hand, are directly on site and fully committed to supporting you in your daily HR work. They are always available to assist with recruitment issues. In close coordination with your own team, they will help create job specifications for the jobs to be filled. HR Freelance Recruiters therefore start at the very beginning of the process to be able to find a quick and optimal solution for you.

With their experience and specialized expertise, they assist in writing job advertisements, then search for suitable candidates via various channels, such as job boards, social media or other selected media, and make a qualified pre-selection.

This way, you can focus only on the most promising candidates and can use the time saved directly for further HR measures.

You will be guided by our freelance recruiters through the entire candidate selection process, assisted in contract interviews and compensation negotiation. Here you can rely on the accumulated experience from numerous customer projects.

But before it even gets to a setting, a whole lot is already going on in the background. In addition to the obvious tasks of personnel acquisition, our freelance recruiters also support you in measures such as developing guidelines for an optimal HR process, analyzing the personnel market in various industries and much more. The goal is to establish a holistic recruiting process that will help your company achieve better personnel management in the long term.

The direct contact of our freelance recruiters with your HR management makes it much easier to tailor your recruiting measures and job offers exactly to the requirements of your company. Whether you are looking for qualified career starters, specialists in a specific industry or even a candidate for the executive level, with the input of a freelance recruiter, you are guaranteed quick success with your human resources measures. In this way, your team can be supplemented with suitable and experienced candidates in the shortest possible time.

Our freelance recruiting services include more than just approaching potential candidates via platforms such as Xing or LinkedIn. Instead, we get to know your business intimately, get a feel for the skills you need, and – just as important – the mood of your employees. This way, we can approach candidates together who will complement your team well in every way. This way, not only your candidate’s resume and previous career fit your company, but also their personality.

Freelance recruiters also have the advantage of being able to be directly involved in your recruitment team and of always being available due to their presence in your company – just as with a freelancer, only for as long as you need them. This means maximum flexibility for you and your project management.

Considering the gain in knowledge from the field of recruiting management, a freelance recruiter is even a quite favorable alternative to the otherwise usual headhunters. This is because they are paid once a candidate has been successfully recruited, whereas a freelance HR manager is charged per hour, but can take care of several vacancies at the same time.

So, you can freely have a qualified worker for your HR team on as many days a week as you like, carefully trained by us and educated in key disciplines such as communications, active sourcing, branding and much more. This is how we ensure that we always stay up to date in our field. We would like to pass this advantage on to your company.
