This 4-step process ensures an easy, transparent and effective recruitment process.

The relationship between third party recruiters and HR teams is often strained, at best. Research shows that the main three reasons for this disconnect are both common and reoccurring:

  • Lack of trust and transparency
  • Lack of quality
  • Lack of perceived value

Recruitment techniques have come a long way in the past three years. There are new sourcing tools and avenues and the growing use of AI and talent pooling. The world is a lot smaller and candidates are more accessible, but the frustrations around hiring models have only gotten worse. In fact, in a survey we conducted, 56 per cent of HR and hiring managers confirmed that attracting talent has become harder over this time period.

We all know that businesses need recruiters, but how can they engage them if they don’t trust them, don’t see the quality and don’t believe in the value?

The way traditional recruitment models operate means recruiters work in a highly sales driven and pressurised environment. Sales KPI’s drive the day-to-day activity, and this focus on bottom-line outcomes – as opposed to process – encourages cutting corners and increases the likelihood of failure.

How many times have you given a recruitment project to multiple agencies only to feel frustrated by the process, and more importantly, the results? It’s not the recruiter that’s letting you down, it’s the model.

Changing the system

Imagine tapping into a talented community of independent, freelance recruiters who are all experienced specialists. Not only that, but every single one of them is quality guaranteed, independently vetted and rated on each project they complete.

The Recstra model is based on delivering transparency, quality and value. Our recruiters operate as an extension of your own business, while being flexible, on-demand and charging only at an hourly rate. You also know exactly where your money is being spent because you receive a fully itemised invoice for every single activity your recruiter undertakes on your behalf, plus a saving of up to 80 per cent against traditional recruitment fees. With Recstra, you are in control of your spend and the process.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3… and 4

The Recstra recruitment model follows a simple four-step process:

1. You post your recruitment project

To kickstart the process we need to know the following: What is the role? Where is it based? What are your contact details? And how much do you want to pay per hour? (We have three levels based on the experience of the recruiter you need).

2. We match you with one of our Recstra Certified Recruiters™

Our Recruiter will contact you to take a detailed job brief. They will follow the Recstra Quality Assurance Program with complete transparency every step of the way.

3. Manage your spend and enjoy quality guaranteed recruitment

We provide flexible, on-demand recruitment at an hourly rate. You will only be billed for the hours your recruiter works, and you’ll receive an itemised invoice (just like your phone bill). We offer complete transparency. You will see and approve every facet of the project.

4. Guarantee & Review

We guarantee the quality of our work with 100 per cent credit. As part of our quality process, all of our recruiters are required to maintain a four star rating. Upon completion we will ask you to provide a review of your experience on independent trust score website – Trustpilot.

Your relationship with your recruitment provider should provide you with transparency, trust, quality and value for money. If you want to explore how this can happen call us on 1300RECSTRA. Or shoot an email to
