An e-recruitment service has been launched in Wellington, whose creator says will avoid employers paying “huge” fees to recruitment agencies for contractors.
Strait Solutions managing director Nick Hill says the website has a search engine which displays contractors that meet employer search criteria, listing them based on closest match. Hill says the New Zealand-wide site is free to contractors and employers pay $200 to get contact details of each CV.
“They only pay for the contact details. They can do a (free search) through the database. There is no ongoing commitment to pay Contract IT a rate or cut afterwards,” he says.
Strait Solutions started in March, with Hill its sole employee. He describes it as “almost a virtual firm”, saying it uses contractors and has a range of “partnerships” with other firms in Wellington and Nelson. Recent projects include the online reservations system for Origin Pacific Airways and the GrowerCo site.
