Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Recruiting services close to our customers

When it comes to recruitment, the support of a headhunter has a clear advantage: headhunters can access a cross-industry network of applicants, quickly find you a suitable profile and place candidates for your vacancies. However, the costs for a headhunter should not be underestimated and the recruiting process is not always transparent for the client.

With Kooku’s Headhunter 2.0 you avoid these disadvantages. Our recruiters know the market, work much closer to your company than a traditional headhunter, and can support you in every aspect of the candidate process you need help with. You decide how much you involve us in your employee search.

What are our advantages over the classic headhunter?

Of course, there are some advantages to hiring one of the classic headhunters: If you lack the resources to search for qualified employees yourself, if you urgently need to fill a certain vacancy but are not making enough speed with the recruiting process or simply do not receive enough applications for your open jobs - In all these cases, a headhunter can easily provide relief. He can bring employers together with suitable job candidates and thus advance the candidates' careers. But as is so often the case, there are also disadvantages to using a headhunter:

On the one hand, a company naturally wants to maintain a positive image during the search. However, it can happen that a headhunter leaves a negative impression on the candidates contacted, because although he acts on behalf of the client, as an external party he is often unable to provide detailed information on the vacancies to be filled. After all, he does not know the company as well as an internal recruiter or on-site consultant would.

In contrast to the headhunter, internal recruiters often find candidates who are a much better fit for the team, because they identify themselves as employees of the company for which you are recruiting potential new colleagues. This means that they not only have more information about the job itself and the working environment, but are also particularly interested in a good team fit of the job candidate.

For a company that hires a headhunter to find and recruit suitable professionals, there is of course another disadvantage compared to an in-house recruitment consultant: The costs. If a candidate is successfully recruited, depending on the agreement, about 15-30 % of the annual salary of the placed position is due. Especially in the case of highly qualified specialists and managers, this can add up to a significant sum for the company. This is why it is particularly important that the headhunter does a good job and places suitable candidates with his client, so that the deal is worthwhile for all parties involved. Kooku not only finds candidates for you who fit into your team culturally, but also saves you approx. 30-60% of the recruiting costs for the successful and long-term filling of the position.
