The business challenge

The recruitment team’s workload exploded with ambitious growth plans for their Poland-based technology division.

The client needed to temporary expand its recruitment team with experienced and reliable tech recruiters that are:

 

  • skilled enough to work independently
  • capable of managing significant workloads
  • knowledge of the local IT market
  • connected with a vast network and talent pool

 

The solution

We kicked off our cooperation in July 2020. At the start of the project, we gathered all information from the internal and external stakeholders, defined the goals and designed the solution. We agreed that the best solution was to assign two in-house tech recruiters who work exclusively on the client’s project and are reaching out to the candidate pool on their behalf.

 

Some of the roles we are recruiting for:

 

  • Senior software developer
  • Programmer manager
  • Technical programmer manager

 

The results

  • Increased the number of qualified tech recruiters
  • Shorter recruitment process
  • Increased number of candidates and hires
  • 28% cost reduction in comparison with the classic recruitment model of contingency hiring
  • One pre-agreed cost including recruiters, tools, licenses and office

 

We significantly improved the candidate sourcing and outreach capability of our client and are now involved in the end-to-end recruitment process. The senior leadership recognised a substantial gain in efficiency and overall hiring. There is now a client-branded office for our recruiters in Ntiative’s main office and in discussion to widen the scope of our work.

Frequently Asked Questions

In our Frequently Asked Questions you will find the answers to the most common questions asked of our team. If you have any specific questions that we have not answered below, please contact us at info@ntiative.com or via the contact page.
What is the difference between agency recruitment, recruitment partnerships and recruitment process outsourcing?

Agency recruitment is the classic model of recruitment, where we search the perfect candidates for one or a couple of different roles within your organisation. Because we work on an exclusive or retained basis, our recruitment team will take the time to understand your business and will be in the best position to promote your roles to the best candidates in the market. Read more here.

Our Recruitment Partnership model is the perfect solution for companies with a requirement of 2 to 10 new hires per month. We assign one or more recruiters dedicated to your projects. The recruiters can be based in-house working alongside your team or from our office in the city centre of Krakow. Read more here.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is the cost-efficient solution for organisations that need to hire at a large scale. We will take ownership of your recruitment processes, allowing you to focus on what matters, your core business. Read more here.

Can you find Polish developers to relocate abroad?

A question that we receive several times per week. The simple answer is, “We would love to but finding Polish developers that want to work abroad is close to impossible”.

From a financial perspective, developers are better off staying in Poland. Most are on a 19% flat tax rate, B2B-contracts, on salaries slightly lower than in Western Europe but with a cost of living that is less than half.

Most of our clients are UK and US companies that are setting up offices in Poland. Not as much as a cost-exercise but rather for scalability and growth. In Poland, it is still possible to find the right talent at an affordable price point. If you would like to relocate good developers, we would advise looking outside of the EU (Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, …) but this will come with additional paperwork in the form of visas and work permits.

We wrote a blogpost about the Three reasons to start a tech team in Poland.

Happy to discuss further if you want more information.

Do we need to start a legal entity before hiring talent in Poland?

No, you can hire talent on contracts under civil law (B2B-contracts). There is no major difference in the cost of employment of permanent employees compared with B2B-contractors, while at the same time, the B2B-agreement provides higher flexibility for the employer.

What is the difference between a standard contract of employment and the B2B contract?

The main difference is that standard contracts of employment (UoP) are regulated by Labour Law, while B2B-contracts fall under Civil Law. This means that certain rights and obligations that are regulated under Labour Law are not standardly provided under the B2B-contract and can be negotiated between the employer and the contractor.

Read here more about the differences between the two contracts.

Can you help us with payroll, accountancy or office space?

Yes, we have gone through all these processes and tasks before, and there is no need to reinvent the wheel. We are happy to bring you in contact with our lawyer and our accountant. Both speak English and are used to deal with foreign clients.

We have several dedicated small offices and desks to rent in our building in the city centre of Krakow. Alternatively, we advise using Colliers who are always doing a great job in finding the perfect office space for their clients.

Can you provide references for the quality of your recruitment services?

Plenty! We even added several references to our website.

Let us know, and we will bring you in contact with one of our clients that had projects similar to yours.
