I am currently doing some market research for one of the Portal Applications I am currently working on  and needed to pick your minds from a Marketing perspective.  Any thoughts, questions would be welcomed.  I am tied to a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA) and I can’t get into too much detail.  Here goes..:

What if there was a Global Portal that allowed Recruiters to identify Candidates interested in working in another Country.  Let’s assume the following:

  • Recruiters are only required to:  Search, Identify, Qualify and Upload Resume with 3 References. 
  • Collect a 15% Fee (Could be more) on Candidate’s start date.   Even if the Start date was 4- 6 months down the road.
  • Clients handle closing process right up to start date.  
  • These are Senior Specific roles $100k - $200k 
  • Possibly Thousands of Roles ...
  • It`s Free for Recruiters to Join....
  • One Candidate Submission to One Job Description

a)       How much time would you dedicate to this Portal?

b)       Do you think the Fee is fair for the time investment? 

c)        What would you need to see happen for you to spend more time on the Portal?


I will try to answer all your questions as long as I don’t cross the lines of my (NDA) ...

Hi Sandra,  We technically don't have to limit it to one submission - we have assumed that if Recruiters have identified someone looking to move to another country for a lucrative job they have added to a valuable pool already that the client did not yet have hence the 1:1 however we are flexible to look at a 1:2 or 1:3 scenario.


Yes if the candidate was living in the same Country no problem you identified, qualified him/her.

The submission will be honored for  1 year and the Portal will also market that candidate to other Clients on the Portal and provide you an update.


Yes Recruiters will be able to tell the candidate where the cv is going and there will be an opportunity to meet a representative of that Client as well.


You could make more than $15k if you wanted to handle more of the recruitment process.


Client will handle criminal checks, visa permit and housing and car issues ... 


Qualify the candidate as you normally would for a role, find out if the Candidate is interested in moving to another country, provide info on Country, region city and Job/Employer - candidate says interested in meeting client upload resume ....  Get back to your regular work... Get Status updates 

There might be communication with the client but we want to limit that ( Not definite).


These are great questions Sandra .... I love em ...
