How to Become a Freelance Recruiter with Noble Hire
Noble Hire’s referral mechanism makes it an excellent tool for recruiters. Whether you’re looking to supplement your income by doing some additional part-time work, or maybe even become a full-time, self-employed recruiter, the platform can help!
For those of you that joined us recently, Noble Hire is a new type of job board that incorporates referral mechanics. Companies post job openings and anyone can help fill them in. If your candidate stays in the company for more than 3 months, the referral is considered successful, and you win the bounty (which usually ranges from 5,000 to 10,000 BGN).
In this guide, we’re going to cover…
- Who is Noble Hire for?
- What can you get from Noble Hire?
- How to use the software?
So, let’s dive right in!
Why Noble Hire?
As we’ve mentioned before, Noble Hire is an amazing way to get extra work as a freelance recruiter. How you use the software, though, and what you get it out of, is completely up to you. In most cases, it’s either of the following 2 options…
- Becoming a Full-Time Noble Referrer – If you’ve ever wanted to start your own recruitment agency, or simply fly solo as a headhunter, Noble Hire is the perfect start. You source the talent, and we provide the clients.
- Sourcing Clients as a Freelance Recruiter – If you’re already a self-employed recruiter (or agency-owner), you probably spend a LOT of time sourcing new clients. With Noble Hire, you get access to as many clients as you want, allowing you to focus on what really counts – making quality referrals.
How to Use Noble Hire as a Recruiter
Getting started with the software is pretty straightforward. You can head over to the jobs page to see all the available positions…
Then, you can pick a position you’re interested in and go through the job ad. Do you know a lot of professionals working in the field? Then it’s definitely something you can work with.
You can then click “refer someone you know” to learn what’s the bounty for the given position.
Once you’ve decided which position you’re trying to fill in, you’ll need to find the right talent. Here are some best practices on how to do that…
- Vet your network – There’s a pretty good chance that you might already know several professionals in the relevant field. You can simply look through your LinkedIn connections and make a list of anyone that fits the bill.
- Post on social – Couldn’t find anyone you know, personally? You can ask your network. Create a post on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter, and ask if anyone knows a relevant professional.
- Alternatively, you could use the “Share to Your Network Function.” This is more of a passive option – you put in less effort, but there’s also a lower payout. You generate yourself a share link on the platform & repost it on your social profiles. If someone applies through your link, you’ll get 20% of the referral bonus.
- Reach out to your network – Ask around. Start reaching out to well-connected friends or acquaintances on both Facebook and LinkedIn, asking if they know the professional you’re looking for.
- Reach out to qualified individuals – If no one in your existing network is a good match for the position (or aren’t interested), you can look up qualified professionals on LinkedIn & let them know about the opportunity.
Once you’ve identified several suitable individuals, you’ll need to pitch them the position. Our detailed company profiles allow you to really present the company, even if you’ve never worked there.
Some of the selling points you could use are…
Product / Service / Impact – Job-seekers don’t want to work for just about any company, they’re looking for an interesting project or product they’ll enjoy working on. You can check the impact of the company on their profile…
As well as the project any given role works. You can find this in the relevant position page…
Company Office & Perks – In any company’s Noble profile, you can find pictures of their main office, coupled with any perks they might offer (Office gym, health benefits, etc.)
Position Benefits – Role-specific bonuses, such as a performance-based bonus system, paid business trips, relocation packages, etc.
Culture – All the cultural activities a company carries out in order to create a positive work environment. Think, team dinners, team-building trips, etc.
To get the information across, you can either send the candidate the relevant company profile or explain everything yourself through text.
If the candidate is interested in the position, you can finally make the referral! To do this, head over to the position page & click “Refer a Candidate” to start filling in the form.
As a start, you’ll need to fill in the basic information about the candidate – name, email, LinkedIn, etc.
Then, you need to justify why the candidate is a good fit for the position, as well as rate how their skills hold up to the top 3 core requirements within the form. Keep in mind that if you make a good case for the candidate, they’ll be prioritized by the company.
Finally, fill in your contact information & we’ll keep in touch!
