Finding the right talent is hard

You start looking around your network. But plowing through piles of resumes doesn't sound fun. Hiring an internal recruiter sounds like a good idea. But one person doesn't have the capacity to interview multiple people. Not to mention the 2+ months ramp-up time. Maybe an agency then? No cure no pay - no risk, right? Now you get a bunch of resumes and candidates thrown at you.  Quantity, sure. But quality? Often these agencies don't specialize in the various roles you're looking for.

But it can get worse

It’s the ultimate nightmare: a mis-hire. A mis-hire costs more than 5 times the candidate’s salary. 😱 

Let that sink in. 

What if hiring wasn't a nightmare?

What if you could fulfill all those roles without taking months? Getting pre-vetted, highly qualified candidates? Being guided through this miserable process and doing what you crave the most: finding the right talent, fast, without compromising on quality.

Taking care of the complete hiring process from end to end

We take care of sourcing, headhunting, screening, employer branding, data analysis, your technical infrastructure, content creation, and a whole lot more. 

Your time is valuable.
We do it all within 8 weeks.

“RocketPeople has delivered a functioning applicant tracking system and branded career page in 3 weeks. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with them as our recruitment partner throughout this exciting year.”

Willemijn de Witt - Head of People, Channel Engine


Looking at pricing, what is the benefit of using RocketPeople compared to alternatives?

Several. Our benefit in comparison to an in-house recruiter is that we're the same price but you get a whole team without ramp-up time. Plus an extensive network that just one person wouldn't have access to. Compared to agencies, we have an incentive to deliver quality and not just throw resumes at you. We're also specialized in tech roles, key hires and complete teams because of the multi-disciplinary team we deploy for you.

I already have an in-house recruiter. Why do I need you?

Great! Unfortunately, we've seen that there are so many aspects of recruiting nowadays: writing job descriptions, optimizing your career pages, employer branding, and so on. One person can often not cover all of these aspects completely. Nor does she/he have the capacity to do all these things and have multiple interviews. We often work together with in-house recruiters on roles that are hard to fill or when you need to fill multiple roles to speed up the hiring process.

“We've hired 5 people through RocketPeople. They prove to be an excellent partner in attracting talent, and we're really pleased to work together."

Arthur Hofman - Director, Colect.io

Why do I have to pay an upfront fee?

Two reasons. The first reason is we want commitment in our partnership. We both have to have an incentive to succeed. The second reason is that it covers our basic costs. From the start, we're using our resources to source, screen, and set up a pipeline.

If the salary changes, does the pricing for the role also change?

No, it does not; we work with defined fixed fees. Therefore you  know exactly how much you will invest and you don’t have any surprises.

How do we know that you will deliver quality profiles?

Firstly we need to understand better what you will qualify as a ‘’high-quality candidate’’. Due to extensive onboarding, we will get a good understanding of the profile you’re looking for. After the onboarding, we will present a shortlist of 10 profiles to see if we are heading in the right direction. After receiving your feedback on the shortlist we will start qualifying and screening candidates on your behalf.

What is your approach for international hiring?

Although we haven't hired in every country in the world, our best practices remain the same. For example, Zenjob asked us to hire in Germany, which we hadn't done before. We applied our proven hiring method in Germany and it delivered Zenjob 20 new hires.

How many relevant profiles will come out of the screening process?

The goal is to deliver 5 relevant profiles.

What happens if you do not find the right candidates in time?

Sometimes the process takes longer than expected. This can be caused by the RocketPeople Team or by the customer. If this happens, a new strategy will be created.

Do I have to pay the fees again if you do not find the right candidate?

No, you only pay the starting fee for the project.

I have approached a lot of candidates. How do I know you are not approaching the same candidates?

RocketPeople can work in the ATS of the client, so the team can see which candidates have been approached in the past. And of course, this will also be part of the onboarding process.
