Before deciding on the most efficient strategy for bringing the recruitment of your contractors in-house, it’s worth researching the market to understand what tools and technology are available to support the processes of sourcing, candidate engagement, payroll, time-sheeting and invoicing.
Rather than us explaining how Elevate Direct supports this end to end process within a single platform, hear from some of our customers themselves:
On using Elevate Direct to recruit contract Web Developers:
“Elevate Direct quickly created a quality shortlist of Web Developers for me to review and engage with that were a good match to the skills and experience we had stipulated when creating the vacancy. I have used the system again since the initial hire was made and have found it very consistent in providing high quality developers for my specific area of the business.
“The interface is clean and easy to use and quickly takes me through the recruitment process. It’s self-explanatory and easy to navigate, without the need for a lot of hand holding”.
Matthias Willerich, Development Manager

On recruiting System Analyst contractors:
“Normally I would have used a recruitment consultancy to find a contractor, but a friend suggested I take a look at Elevate Direct. It’s a pretty simple system. You log on, post a job, and it suggests a list of contractors that match the skills and experience you are looking for”.
“We recruited the Systems Analyst contractor in a very short space of time, and benefited from paying a considerably lower margin compared to going through a recruitment consultancy. As an additional recruitment tool with no upfront costs, I would definitely recommend Elevate Direct to other recruiters that need to hire contractors”.

On recruiting contract Software Testers:
“There are too many traditional recruitment firms not justifying their high costs. QAWorks UK leading testing practice is all about offering the best value to our clients and Elevate Direct’s platform allows us to find and speak directly with professionals who, like us, want to cut out the middle man. It’s a major benefit to both parties!”
“As a fast growing UK-based testing house QAWorks are only interested in hiring the very best. Elevate Direct’s platform allows us to do that – and at a much lower rate.”

On recruiting contract Java Developers:
“It is important that Sentience Technology has control over its recruitment processes and that those processes are both efficient and cost-effective. Elevate Direct’s cloud based recruitment platform offers us the solution we need. The ability to search and view the skills and experience of candidates in a central location allows us to save both time and money as the Elevate Direct solution is significantly more cost effective.
“The quality of candidate on Elevate Direct is very good, resulting in us making multiple hires. With a customer-centric approach Elevate Direct have produced a model that works well for both the employer and the contractor. We were pleased with the flexibility that this offers and have critically never felt ‘locked in’.
“We plan to use Elevate Direct again when we next require IT Contractors for our projects.”
