FAQ Employer

How does spires work as a recruiting marketplace?

The way it works is simple, unique and avoids all the paperwork that used to be required for recruiters and headhunters. Every member of a human resources department can register with spires to become active for his or her company.

Our large network of employers from the healthcare industry places vacancies on the marketplace. Employers then basically benefit from the entire healthcare recruiter market. But only recruiters with matching specialisation, from the relevant region and with good ratings receive your job via push in real time.

The recruiter then starts speaking to suitable candidates and introducing them to your company.

As an employer you decide whether to discuss topics purely digital or in person by phone/video/inhouse. Many of our clients prefer relaxed digital communication without pushiness.

If the candidate is then hired, we take over the complete billing processes for both sides.

What are the main advantages for employers?

spires lowers your recruiting costs and massively improves your time-to-fill times. By using spires as a recruiting marketplace you let the full range of successful recruiters and headhunters in the healthcare sector work for you.

You define the rules, so that your cooperation with recruiters is completely stress-free and, if desired, completely digital and without phone calls.

We do all the paperwork for you and take care of all the processes.

What do spires services cost me as an employer?

spires takes over the allocation of your open vacancies to the most suitable recruiters and all the paperwork. This way you can fully concentrate on selecting the right candidates and reduce your time-to-fill times.

You decide yourself which budgets you want to invest in individual positions and thus reduce your recruiting costs.

spires receives a part of the commission that goes to the recruiter.

How much budget do I need for a vacancy?

spires is a free marketplace for recruiters and employers. Therefore, as an employer, you decide yourself how much budget you want to use per vacancy.

Basically you can set two values in your settings: A. On the one hand, a maximum percentage of the placed candidate’s annual salary (e.g. 25%). B. On the other hand, a fixed maximum amount you would like to invest (e.g. 15,000 EUR).

These values are set by recruiters in the same way, but as minimum values. We will then, of course, only send your jobs to recruiters who match your above-mentioned maximum values.

To help you find realistic values, you can also directly see what percentage of recruiters would work for your conditions.

Are only vacancies in the health industry allowed to be placed?

Just as we are launching our recruitment marketplace in the DACH region, we are initially focusing on the healthcare industry. Here we have a large network of talents, employers and recruiters.

However, in the healthcare sector, with over 7 million employees, there is a full range of professions. Therefore, it is also very likely that our recruiters will be able to offer you suitable candidates for jobs outside the healthcare sector.

In which regions can spires be used as a recruiting marketplace?

spires is active in the DACH region, i.e. Germany, Austria and Switzerland, as most of our talents, employers and recruiters are located here.

Nevertheless, our marketplace is already open and can also be used in other countries. However, right now we cannot guarantee that there will be enough recruiters and talents for any job and every country.

Therefore, we will add regions step by step to ensure a good coverage of jobs, recruiters and candidates. We will keep you informed about each step

Can I also test spires first as an employer?

Yes, of course. An account with spires is completely free. So feel free to have a look around. If you have a question or are missing a feature, please contact our team.

Why does spires focus only on jobs in the healthcare industry?

Just as we are initially launching our recruiting marketplace for employers in the DACH region, we are initially focusing on the healthcare industry. Here we have a large network of talent, employers and recruiters.

Jobs outside the health sector can also be posted in the DACH region on a selective basis. Here, the range of recruiters and candidates will usually be sufficient.

Nevertheless, we will inform you as soon as new sectors are activated.

What are the advantages of a recruiting marketplace over conservative recruiting?

spires offers all partners the possibility to work together digitally and stress-free and thus as effectively as possible. We want to take the paperwork off all sides so that recruiters and employers can concentrate on the essentials, namely finding great talents for successful companies.

Is there a money-back period if the candidate does not fit?

Yes, of course. We all know that you can put so much passion into choosing a candidate and then it doesn’t work out together.

The notice period or money-back period is fixed at 4 months and is calculated to the week. Recruiters also have the option to refill the position.

How does the payment process work?

After successfully hiring a talent, you receive an invoice from us and after receiving the money, we pay it to the recruiter successively and on a monthly basis. The last share after the end of the cancellation period. In this way, we ensure that in the event of a money-back case, the amount can be paid out immediately.

How much contract and paperwork really stays with me as an employer?

spires takes care of almost everything for you. You just register and place your open positions. We are happy to help with this. After our recruiters have sent you suitable candidates and you hire them, we take care of all the payment processing. You receive a separate invoice for each transaction and we also take care of any refunds. You completely avoid having to negotiate and maintain individual contracts with individual recruiters.

Does spires also make sense for executive positions?

Basically, one of the benefits of spires is, that you as an employer can handle a large part of the cooperation with a recruiter digitally, stress-free.

Management positions certainly often require detailed discussions on your expectations, the culture in the company and political aspects.

Here, of course, you can also seek personal contact with our specialised executive recruiters and avoid purely digital communication.
