Tech recruiters are facing uncertain times. Funding environments, the AI revolution, and layoffs are all affecting the ability to plan ahead. Hiring teams are now facing situations where they’ve just paid tens of thousands of euros for 3 Recruiter seats in LinkedIn Recruiter, to suddenly find that they no longer need them. Or, companies experience a sudden surge in job openings during a specific quarter, but their only option for finding candidates is to purchase an over-dimensioned annual subscription. With these ever-changing hiring plans, it’s becoming increasingly evident that old-fashioned hiring models are struggling to adapt.
Circular’s mission to change the way hiring works has never been more significant. Until now, we’ve tackled tech talent scarcity and improved candidate experience by leveraging referrals to connect companies with pre-vetted candidates who are actively looking for opportunities. Now, it’s crucial for us to adapt and provide companies with a solution that supports their fluctuating hiring needs instead of hindering them. So, we went back to the drawing board to think of a way that we can support your hiring needs at the moment you need them.
Flexibility is more important than ever but the fundamentals of recruitment remain the same. Recruiters are tasked with finding quality candidates, that meet the job requirements, fast.
With this said, our brand new On-Demand Pro Plans become the most flexible in the industry. It’s simple –you pay for the qualified candidates that you get in your pipeline when you need them.
"But I already get candidates via applications and sourcing," you might say. That's true, but most applications don't meet your requirements, and most of the candidates you source don’t answer. Circular connects you to qualified candidates who meet your job requirements, who are actively looking for new opportunities, have been pre-vetted by similar companies - meaning you can hire quality candidates, fast. Until now, the only way to access these qualified candidates in Circular was via an annual subscription. Now, you can access them when you need them.
“We used to spend three months or more sourcing candidates using LinkedIn or hiring agencies, which was time-consuming and costly. With Circular, we've been able to increase our effectiveness by over 75%”
