Save on Recruitment

Control the Process

Every employer has their own unique priorities, process and preferences. Direqlink empowers employers to customize and control all aspects of the agency engagement process for each job order, including selecting which recruiters to invite, the method of interaction with those recruiters, the interview process and the fee.

Name your own fee

Direqlink’s customizable flat fixed fee pricing models for both permanent and contract jobs provides cost certainty and ensures that the interests of the employer and recruiter are aligned when it comes to the candidate negotiation process.

Better Quality. Faster.

Breadth and Depth

Through a single, streamlined channel, Direqlink gives you access to the best candidates from an exclusive network of fully vetted, local, expert recruiters whose broad and deep networks maximize your reach into the market.

Timely submissions

All invited agencies will receive the requirement simultaneously, creating a competitive environment that incents member agencies to engage and present their best candidates to you quickly.

Robust network of expert recruiters

Direqlink continuously monitors the performance of our member agencies to ensure the highest quality delivery and the ability to meet the most highly sought after specializations. Member agencies are also publicly rated for performance by member employers and candidates.

Build customized preferred lists for specific needs

With Direqlink’s universal performance rating system, it is easy to find out which recruiters are consistently providing the best candidates within specific specializations. Creating and modifying your own customized list of preferred recruiters in the application is simple.

Candidate Experience

Candidates submitted through Direqlink are able to rate their experience of the process for both the agency and the employer. These insights hold recruiters accountable to providing a great experience and give employers feedback on their hiring process.

Simple Streamlined Process

Manage candidate submissions with the click of a button

Reviewing, accepting, and rejecting candidate submissions can be done with the click of a button. Direqlink’s built-in chat application provides a simple way for employers and recruiters to exchange information, schedule interviews and share feedback.

One set of terms.

Direqlink’s flat fee pricing model and standard guarantees provides employers with both cost certainty and peace of mind that they are covered in the event that a hired candidate does not work out. Direqlink also manages candidate submission and ownership rules to ensure that quality remains high and there are no disputes around which agency obtained the right to represent a candidate.

Eliminate Annoying Sales Calls

Employers can reduce the onslaught of sales calls from recruiters by simply directing them to Direqlink for vetting and approval. Once the recruiter is approved for membership, that employer will be able to invite them to work on specific jobs on-demand as needed and eliminate unwarranted solicitations for business.

100% Guarantee

All hires made through Direqlink come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If the candidate does not work out within the guarantee period, you can choose to use that fee towards a new placement or obtain a full refund.

FAQs

What does it cost to use?
There is no fee to use the platform. When you post a job, you name your own fee, and you only pay that fee if and when you successfully fill the role through the platform and the candidate passes the 90-day guarantee period.
How do the guarantees work?
Direqlink guarantees all placements with a 90-day, 100% cash-back guarantee.
Why would I use Direqlink instead of going directly to a Recruiter?
Direqlink offers a fixed-price, name your own fee, single agreement that gives you the ability to easily and efficiently work with countless expert recruiters simultaneously. Direqlink also acts as a governing body to protect your interests and ensure everything runs smoothly.
How does the platform make money?
When one of our member agencies successfully fills a position, they pay the platform service fee for filling the role, equivalent to 25% of the total fee paid by the employer (unless they are a designated “Amnesty” agency, in which case there is no service fee applicable).
How many agencies are in the platform?
There are currently more than 100 specialized professional recruitment firms in the platform, altogether representing more than 3,000 professional recruiters across North America. This number continues to grow every week, giving Direqlink by far the greatest access to top talent over any other source.
How do you vet agencies?
Most of the member agencies have come recommended by Employers using the platform. They must demonstrate a track record of fulfilling roles in their area of expertise for at least three years prior to being approved to join the network. We also closely monitor their performance once they are part of the network to ensure that they meet our high standard of customer service and satisfaction.
How does candidate ownership work?
A submitting agency is granted candidate ownership for that specific job for 6 months from the date of submission, provided the candidate has not already previously applied or been submitted to that Employer within the previous six months.
How do I access the platform?
The platform is completely web-based so there is no software to download or install. You simply login through the website and you are good to go.
Can we move our current vendors onto the Direqlink platform?
Yes! The transition process is simple and typically takes no more than a week. Our team handles all onboarding, training, and Q&A with your Agencies. Once they have been onboarded, you can choose to “Amnesty” them under their existing billing and fee terms, or migrate them onto the flat, name-your-own-fee model with the other agencies in the platform.
How will the recruiters uphold my employment brand and provide a solid candidate experience?
Candidates anonymously rate the recruiters on their professionalism, knowledge of the job, and knowledge of the employer. Recruiters that receive anything below a 4 out of 5 rating from their candidates are personally reviewed by the Dirqelink team, with the potential of being coached for improvement or removed from platform entirely. This ensures that our community will maintain a high standard for your employment brand and candidate experience.
What if there are no Recruiters in the platform that specialize in the job I need to fill?
We have profiled and vetted hundreds of recruitment firms across all geographies and specializations in North America, so we can easily engage and onboard specialized recruiters that are not already in the platform as needs come up, ensuring we will never encounter a job that we cannot confidently fill.
