2. Specialised Remote Recruitment

As remote experts we know how to find and identify the best talent. And we know how to separate good remote workers from people who apply to jobs simply because they like the idea of working remotely. We also provide a full recruitment agency service, making it even easier for you to find talent.

Recruitment consultants typically specialise in a specific job role, such as healthcare or web development. These agencies can only recruit based on half the job requirements. Remote teams need employees who also fit their remote working culture. As remote jobs specialists, we help you access talent and then narrow this talent down to the best people for your job. This includes:

  • Unlimited job postings
  • Home page and other promotion
  • Screening of candidates
  • Video interviewing of candidates
  • Shortlisting of up to five potential candidates
  • Selection recommendations
  • Candidate reference checking

We use objective methods to efficiently screen applications and bring hundreds of thousands of candidates down to the best 10 -15 for your job. We’ll share our methods with you and conduct multiple screening rounds until we get down to a manageable list. Screening and shortlisting is time consuming and we do the heavy lifting for you.

The Search Remotely team will then conduct initial interviews so we can reduce the list to the absolute best candidates. We’ll also debrief candidates so they understand why they were not selected. Our interviewing is based on both the job specifications and remote working requirements.

You are the employer and you will do the final round of interviewing. It’s our job to deliver the very best candidates direct to your HR team or management, up to five outstanding prospects for your remote job.

Work From Anywhere – Employ From Anywhere

The future of work is remote. And the future of work is here, now. Covid-19 accelerated this future to the point that remote work is now remaking where and how we live. Now there are more than 700 million people working remotely around the world.

But the rise of remote work hasn’t been matched by remote recruitment. How can you find a remote worker on a traditional jobs platform, where job seekers must filter initially for remote?

Search Remotely is changing this. It’s the premium platform for remote job seekers and employers.
