Is my personal information safe?
Pricing and access flexibility?
All recruiters access the iX community platform with a simple annual licence based on the number of users. The platform works well for both low and high volumes.
We set up the relationship in any way you wish, single user, multiple users, multiple offices, multiple brands. We can also help you to manage the approval and reporting process, to make sure you know what is happening at any stage.
Can we publish International roles and projects?
You can post live roles for any location and would set up the system to support you in recruiting Interims for international assignments, or to recruit international consultants for local projects. Your talent pipeline can also help you manage these relationships directly going forward.
Are Interims pre-qualified?
Yes, all the Interims and consultants live on iX are either pre-qualified at registration, or will be iX accredited (with available testimonial referees). We do however request you carry out your own reference checks, to ensure their skills and experience match the project you are managing. If you need support to do this, we can also provide this on a project basis.
What happens if we wish to replace an Interim?
Of course you can, Interims by nature are specialists and the benefit of building a pipeline of talent means you can add to, or replace any interim as the project changes, or you need a different set of skills. The relationship is managed directly by you.
Is it easy to change level of membership?
Of course, you can upgrade or downgrade to a lower service level, if you do lower the service, you can also keep the talent pipeline already developed, if you need to put recruitment on hold for periods of time. Options are priced to be affordable and designed to encourage long term relationships regardless of the volume of recruitment.
Will one membership cover all our recruiters?
Yes, membership is based around each business and we can structure iX for single or multiple users, and we can set up iX to help you manage the job posting approval and reporting process.
What support does iX provide?
The iX platform helps you to recruit directly, however when you need help, or you cannot find the right Interim, we can quickly check and make sure you haven't missed someone, or suggest a suitable approach or partner to help you. We also offer a full service recruitment option including payroll management if you would like iX to manage the whole process for you.
