Does Techaid place both permanent and temporary staff?
Yes, Techaid can provide either permanent or temporary staff, depending on customer needs. Temporary staff can be either on Techaid’s payroll, (customer pays an hourly rate), or on your payroll, (customer pays a weekly fee).
Do you offer a guarantee?
Yes, all permanent placements come with our guarantee; if our placement leaves your employ for any reason during the guarantee period Techaid will provide a replacement free of charge. (An optional pro-rated refund is also available for clients who elect to not hire a replacement.)
What is the difference between contingent and retained search?
Contingent search offers our standard services for free - you pay a placement fee only when you hire our referred candidate. Our consultants normally work on multiple contingent searches at the same time, prioritising those with the highest likelihood of success. However most customers opt for contingent search.
Retained search is ideal for critical or difficult searches, ensuring your consultant prioritises your search and invests the time needed in finding the right candidate however long it takes. Retained searches require a retainer payable at the start of the search.
