Award Winning Recruitment on Demand Service.


Can you provide consultants with functional and industry expertise?

Yes, we have a database of consultants with varying industry and functional expertise across the UK 

Does the model operate outside the UK?

Yes, the model can be utilised for vacancies outside of the UK. We have successfully delivered this service to Europe and USA using our UK based Recruiters.

Can I create a project team by engaging recruiters with different levels of experience?

Yes, you can tailor a team to meet the needs/requirements of your business.  

Can you manage internal candidates, agencies and contractors?

Yes, those all form part of the service on offer to you, providing you are able to allow our Recruiters access to your internal systems/processes.  

Can we utilise your ATS /systems and are there additional charges associated with this?

Yes, you can utilise our ATS/systems with no additional charges to the monthly project fee.  

Do we need to provide the consultants with equipment?

As part of our service, we provide all consultants engaged under Recruitment on Demand with a laptop and phone.  

Can the service be delivered on site and remotely?

In most cases, our clients are utilising this service remotely given the agility of collaborative technology and office space being at a premium. However, our Recruiters and Business Partners are available for regular on-site meetings, should this be a requirement.   

What notice period is required to freeze or switch off the service?

1 week within the first month of the agreement, thereafter it will be a 1-month notice period.  

What is the minimum contractual period?

Our minimum contract period is 1 month.

Can we engage a Resourcer/Recruiter/BP on a part time basis?

Yes, this would need to be qualified per individual enquiry. Please get in touch to discuss further, should a part time solution be something you are considering.  

Who sets the expectation / objectives of the service?

We work collaboratively with our clients and take a comprehensive brief at the beginning of the process to agree expectations and objectives.   

How will you measure/monitor success of the project deliverables?

Prior to going live with your project, we will agree to clear, defined objectives. We then monitor these through our own software, and you will receive updated reports from the Recruiter as regularly as required.   

Will you help support and improve our D&I strategy?

We would work closely with your internal HR/TA teams (where applicable) to understand what the diversity strategy and corporate objectives are. In addition, support an inclusive working environment. In our experience this can be influenced when working in partnership with hiring managers to promote flexible working and ensure that wording in job specifications and adverts are appealing to all communities.  

Does this service have IR35 implications?

No, it does not. 

Who manages and directs the individual?

We will manage, train and direct the individuals engaged on your contract on a day to day basis to ensure a maximum return on investment. However, we would provide management information and agree review meeting to ensure we are aligned.    

What happens if we wish to engage the individual directly?

Should an agreement be made between the consultant and yourselves for them to join you on a permanent basis and move away from eSift, a placement fee will apply. This would equate to 25% of the salary offered to the employee.  

Where will data be stored and what are the GDPR implications?

Once we’ve identified which systems are being used by you, we can define a tailored approach to ensure all GDPR requirements are met.  

When do you bill for the service?

On the first day of the agreement, with the following invoices raised at the start of each new month. (e.g. Service starts on 22nd of the month, the initial invoice would be raised on that day and then on the 22nd of each month moving forward).  

Any additional costs?
  • Travelling expenses - mileage, public transport, overnight stays and meal allowance will be an additional cost and claimed where required and previously authorised by you.

  • Advertising – whereby you require us to obtain CV database access and advertising credits on your behalf. This will be discussed and agreed before proceeding with any purchases.

  • LinkedIn – should you require a LinkedIn Recruiter licence for the Consultant(s) we can recharge the cost to you..
