FAQ Recruiters

When do I get paid when my candidate gets hired?

For each candidate you submit via Transport Talent that is hired by an employer, you will be paid a placement fee after the candidate guarantee period (typically 60-90 days) from your candidate’s start date with the end-client. Once the payment is received from the client, we are paying placement fee via Bank wire.

What if the candidate is already known by the end-client or the local Transport Talent Partner?

Employers need candidates that they don’t know yet. In order to get the recruitment fee, the candidate has to be “new” to the employer. If the candidate is already known by the local Transport Talent Partner, and has a proof of contact within last 12 months, he/she has to immediately notify Transport Talent and the recruiter.

Who 'owns' the candidate I submit?

After submitting a candidate for the role, you have the “ownership” of the candidate for 6 months. If the candidate is placed by another recruiter in another role than the one you submitted him/her to, the fee will be split between you and the other recruiter or Transport Talent.

What about double submissions?

It’s not possible to submit a certain candidate to the same position several times by different recruiters. If your candidate was submitted to our system by another recruiter, then the candidate “belongs” to the recruiter who submitted him/her first. We’ll do our best to immediately inform you about the case. You can confirm the submission of the candidate for a position by accepting a split of the fee’s between you and the recruiter who initially submitted the candidate. In this case the fee will be given to the person who initially submitted the candidate.

Why should I share my roles?

When you have difficulties filling a role or the client is hiring multiple candidates it’s a good idea to fulfill the client’s need even for less than the total recruitment fee. Simply you can place more candidates and earn money, when otherwise you’ll get nothing.

How much does it cost to be a member?

Transport Talent is free for recruiters. There are no costs or monthly fees for independent recruiters to use the platform.

Finding Candidates

How do I find candidates to refer to Transport Talent jobs?
We're depending on you to discover new candidates that we otherwise would not have found. So we encourage you to find candidates in whichever way is both effective for you and within our guidelines.
Some successful strategies employed by other Transport Talent recruiters include:

  • Finding and contacting candidates via social networks like LinkedIn
  • Putting the word out within their own professional networks
  • Attending local events that are relevant to the types of professionals they are looking for
  • Utilising professional associations and other membership organisations
  • Using resume databases to find candidates

What should I do once I’ve identified a great candidate?
Once you find a great candidate, get in touch with them to tell them about the opportunity. Be sure to let them know that you’re an independent recruiter who has identified them as a good fit for the role. If they’re interested, refer them to the job by getting them to apply via the unique link you have provided them with

Can I contact the employer if I have a question?
No, please do not reach out to employers directly. If you have questions related to the postings contact us at info@transporttalent.com

What if my candidate has already applied?
Employers are using referrals to find new candidates. If your candidate has already applied, or has been referred by someone else on Transport Talent, we will notify you that you are not eligible for the reward.

Can I submit the same candidate to more than one job?
Yes, if there are multiple roles for which the candidate is a good match, feel free to submit the candidate to each one.

Can I share the name of the hiring employer with potential candidates?
Yes, if the details are available on the transport talent site you can share it.

How do I get additional job information (e.g. salary)?
We aim to list positions offering market- rate salaries, and some job listings will display the salary ranges directly.

Referring Candidates

Can I refer a candidate I don’t know personally?
Of course! We encourage you to flex your sourcing skills to find candidates that we otherwise wouldn’t. As you find great candidates, make sure to reach out to them to confirm their interest before referring them.

Does Transport Talent keep my candidate’s contact information?
Yes. If your candidate chooses to apply for the job, but is not a perfect match for the position, we will maintain their information in case they are a match for another position at a later time. You must submit the candidate for open roles they are interested in in the future to receive credit for placing your candidate at a job. However, if your candidate does not choose to apply for the job, we will purge their information.

Managing Referred Candidates

My Candidate has been in the same status for a while, what's going on?
There are a handful of common reasons why this could be. For instance, there may be lots of candidates in the pipeline, and the employer is trying to catch up. Generally, the best way to find out more detailed information about your candidate's status is to reach out to them! They'll have the latest info from the hiring employer.

How will I know if one of my candidates is hired?
The Transport Talent team keeps track of when one your candidates have been hired.

One of my candidates was hired, what happens now?
When one of your candidates is hired for the position you referred them to, we will contact you and send you the necessary forms to issue your reward payment. With your payment information on file, we can issue your payment when your candidate starts their new job (it make take some weeks for our payment processor to issue funds).
