Headhunters: How It Works

Employers Post Job Vacancies

Employers post a job description on BountyJobs and offer a bounty (as percent of salary or a fixed fee). The bounty represents the amount employers will pay the headhunter who finds them the right candidate to fill the job.

Employers Engage Headhunters

Headhunters search for job descriptions and companies that match their expertise, then request permission to engage on a bounty. Employers can review a headhunter's historical performance to determine fit before deciding whether to accept or decline engagement.

Headhunters Submit Candidates

Once engaged, the headhunter can freely submit qualified candidates to be considered for the position. Employers can assess qualified candidates online or message recruiters, and headhunters and employers can track the progress of their candidates every step of the way.

Employers Review Submissions

Employers review resumes and interview candidates. Headhunters can communicate with employers through the BountyJobs messaging system or on the phone to help them find their perfect candidate.

Employer Awards Bounty to Headhunter

On the candidate's start date, BountyJobs invoices the employer for the stated bounty. The employer pays one vendor, BountyJobs, and BountyJobs delivers 75% to the successful headhunter. BountyJobs will refund the full bounty to the employer if the candidate does not work out for up to 90 days. Please refer to Pricing and Policies for details about fees and the employment guarantee.
