HeadRace for Recruiters

Expand your business & grow your Revenue

There's no cost for recruiters to join and get access to niche opportunities outside your current pipeline

Why are you only taking home a tiny fraction of your hard-earned fees?

There's no reason you should be losing 50-80% of your hard-earned billings to pay for 'overhead' in a big recruiting agency. Accounting, legal/contracts, payment processing, invoicing, collections, and admin are all automatable. HeadRace gives you all of this for free, thereby increasing your take-home by 2-3x through cost savings alone.

Take home a lot more money

Pay nothing for crucial back-office functions like contracts and payments.

Save time and hassle

Speak directly with each recruiter to find the right one for you.

Get more searches

The more you use HeadRace, the more we market your placement record to new employers- thereby bringing you more business.
“HeadRace providing back office services is a game changer... Their software provides contracts, terms, back office, payments that are all entirely set up from the start, free of cost. At the end of my first year, I made double what I did at my previous agency.”

Before HeadRace, I was flying by the seat of my pants... Sure, I felt confident about my ability to find, attract, and land talent for start-ups, but when it came to contracts, terms, and payments, I really am thankful for HeadRace helping me through it all.
