Hi Katrina - I'd like to invite you to join us at the XtremeRecruiting.tv group here on RecruitingBlogs. You'll find other SAP recruiters here along with some videos that give insight into the rise of technology in our business.
Katrina. I just wanted to reach out to find out if there was potential to partner with you on some of the SAP requirements you may be working on. I have an extensive network and am really emersing myself within the community at the moment. Would love to hear from you.
Sorry for the slow response, but the client decided not to hire for the HR manager position. However, they are working on multiple FTE SAP positions here in NC and I'll call you to discuss them if you thinks you might be able to assist. No visa candidates, no contractors and no contract to perm. Needs include BW, FI/CO, WM/MM & Portal developer.
My answer to your Market Rates for Cleared SAP Pros question:
Types of Clearances:
SCI: Special Compartmentalized Intelligence
SI: Special Intelligence
TS: Top Secret
Most SAP positions that require clearances require only low level clearances; C or S. Generally, whenever someone makes a move from one role that requires clearance to another, if they are deemed to be "clearable", their provisional clearance is given within a matter of weeks, and the process begins anew whenever they go to a new position. So there is nothing special about having a low level clearance, these folks may be hired for a little more, but they would not necessarily be a higher rate than say a Green Card SAP individual with the same skills. So the answer is a "little better" on a case by case basis depending on the demand in the spot market. But generally the quality of his SAP skills would have a greater impact than the fact that he is clearable.
Higher level security clearances; TS, SI, and SCI; are a different matter. These are hard to come by and are more easily transferred than begun anew. People who have these clearances know they are valuable and so there can be said to be a higher "market rate". However there are generally so few roles requiring such high level clearance that they can't really be said to affect the market.
Expenses are treated to be the same, meaning depending what the client wants.
If you have any follow-up clearance-related questions please send me an e-mail to: VirtualSourcer@comcast.net . . . All the Best!
I wanted to quickly touch base with you regarding a retained search that I'll most likely be taking on starting next week with a client in NC. They are looking to move very quickly to locate a SAP HR Project Manager (perm) and as we both know these people are A. hard to find & B. Expensive. I thought I touch base in advance to see if you are open to split business and be interested in hearing more about the job & the details when I put the deal together.
Let me know either way and please check out my page here on recruitingblogs or our blog site at www.thevoiceofit.com
