Agencies and marketing departments now have access to the Hiring Bounty crowd sourcing recruitment platform thanks to a partnership with MarkLives.com.
Hiring Bounty taps into networks of friends to bypass recruitment agents and crowd-source candidates for positions in the marketing and technology industries. The site gives a cut of the recruitment ‘bounty’ set by employers to those recommending successful candidates as well as the appointed candidates themselves.
It incentivises friends who already know the skill sets of one another as well as important considerations such as culture fit and personality to recommend friends for jobs. It also incentivises candidates to throw their hat into the ring, since there is a cash pay-out for both themselves and their friends, should theirs be the successful application.
The service has already successfully landed hard to find candidates for companies such as Woolworths, Urbian and World Wide Creative.
MarkLives.com focuses on providing a journalism driven platform to cover media and marketing industry news, provide in depth case studies , profile movers and shakers and chronicle media innovation in a changing communication landscape. It’s edited by respected businesses journalist Herman Manson.
‚”MarkLives is frequented by some of the top marketing minds in the country and we’re pleased to provide a platform to allow this talent to refer their friends or apply for their dream jobs themselves. All this happens through the MarkLives career page,‚” says Greg Schneider, MD of Hiring Bounty.
MarkLives editor Herman Manson says the site, which was the first to report the news of the recruitment start-up in June, is pleased to be associated with a category disruptor. ‚”We believe agencies will turn to this new initiative as the search for talented digital savvy individuals intensifies.‚”
