How does HeadRace get data on recruiter’s historical performance?

Track records are a crucial component in understanding a Recruiter’s ability to serve your needs well. By using  HeadRace to fulfill their back-office needs and to transact with Clients more easily, Recruiters create a verifiable record of their performance and their business.  This data allows Recruiters to market their offering more easily to Employers and also allows Employers to have more confidence in knowing a match fits their needs.

Do I have to remember to send invoices to clients?

HeadRace automatically handles invoice creation and sending to clients- all perfectly on time.

How are payments handled?

All payments are facilitated through the HeadRace platform and appropriately remitted to your recruiters of choice. 1099s only need to be issued to Headrace Technologies, Inc. We handle the tax forms for your recruiters.

How much does HeadRace charge?

If you originate the search agreement with one of your existing client relationships, then HeadRace charges you 0%. You keep 100%. If you accept a role sourced by the HeadRace team, then we charge between 5% and 30% of the fees paid.

Do Recruiters on HeadRace keep more of my fees paid to them?

Yes, a lot more. Recruiters at big recruiting companies typically only keep 20-50% of the fees paid to them. The rest goes to corporate overhead and equity partner profits. Independent Recruiters on the HeadRace platform keep 80-100% of fees.
