Social recruitment solution MyJobCompany announced this week that they are launching in the UK. The service, which builds upon the traditional recruitment tools by adding “social headhunters” – individuals who push job listings to their network and earn money if the post is filled because of them – already counts 20,000+ social headhunters, and has already had 300 customers since its launch in January 2012. Companies using the solution to recruit can pick a sliding scale of how much they will offer to ‘social headhunters’ as a reward for successful recruitment.
MyJobCompany successfully launched in LatAm out of Chile earlier this year, bringing on board 5,000 social headhunters in the first 3 days. Backed by 650K€ in seed capital, the company already has its very own German clone, JobCrowd.de, and finds itself going head-to-head with US seed startup RolePoint or the Swedish Jobylon.
What do you think of MyJobCompany? Would you pay social headhunters?
