azine.me is an online market place for the efficient referral of on-site IT contracts/jobs directly from IT expert to IT expert.
The current process(?) for finding the right IT contractor
azine.me puts the deciding discussion between candidate and project insider at the beginning. Through this, the process becomes more efficient for all parties.
The project insiders play a major role in the new process and they'll be rewarded with a 3% referral fee for their help in searching the best matching candidate.
IT contractors/freelancers get the opportunity to get in contact with end customers directly and without unfair customer safeguard clauses.
Project insiders know exactly which skills are required of a contractor or freelancer to fit into the team. On azine.me, project insiders (contractors or employees) can anonymously publish information about an open position in his or her team. Interested freelancers or contractors get in touch with the insider and they then decide which one of them (if any) he or she wants to introduce to the project manager. If the referral is successful, the insider gets a 3% referral fee directly from the contractor.
As a project member (employee or contractor - it doesn't matter which), you know exactly what kind of people are needed in your team and you can earn some money by helping the project owner/manager to find the right people.
By taking an active role in the search for your team members, you can influence who you will be working with in the future and maybe even help a friend who is looking for some work.
On azine.me contractors can find info about IT contracts published by project insiders. Contractors apply for the job directly with the project insider, who is themselves an IT expert, not a head hunter or recruiter. The contractor can make direct contact with the project manager without costly personnel service providers as middlemen. If the freelancer gets the contract, they will pay a referral commission of 3% to the project insider.
The successful referral of an IT freelancer or contractor to a project will be rewarded with a clearly defined referral fee.
Through the direct and personal contact with the project owner or manager, expensive intermediary companies can be skipped and a better rate can be negotiated.
Because project insiders are talking to you on azine.me, you won't hear sales phrases, this means that you'll get to know what actually awaits you in the project and not what HR or some intermediary understood.
A Project Manager on the hunt for a good IT contractor for their project is always happy to find good candidates that have been suggested by trusted project team members. After all, good people usually know other good people. And it is often only decided whether a candidate really fits into the team after a direct conversation between them and the project member/insider. Why not let your trusted project members help with the hunt from the very start?
Your confidence in recommended IT freelancers and contractors - that they will fit in and have the skills required - will be a lot higher for people who have been suggested via azine.me, because they come from people you already trust and your team members will be happy to work with the people they recommended. Good people recommend good people.
Because of the direct communication from your trusted team member to the future team member, it is clearer for the IT freelancer or contractor what is expected of them and what they can expect the project to be like.
The whole recruiting process can be done without expensive intermediary companies, as well as giving you access to higher qualified people at the same cost or the opportunity to save money.
With azine.me, everyone profits from the contract referral.
The contractor or freelancer gets a nice contract, the project insider receives a well-earned referral fee and
the project manager gets the best people for their team without any extra hassle.
