frequently Asked questions

What on earth?

We’ve all been there – alone, with plenty of venture capital, trying to figure out what to spend it all on.

What services does ACELR8 offer?

We offer two services to scale your hiring: 1. An embedded recruiter, to become part of your team and take care of full-cycle recruitment. 2. An executive recruiter, to become part of your team, and find your next executive through our community. On top of that we offer an employer branding boost, that gives you more visibility as an employer.

What happens if we don’t make a hire?

In the very unusual outcome that ACELR8 is unable to fill the role, then you only pay the small retainer fee!

How does an executive search work?

Firstly, we set up an initial call to discuss the possibility of working together and to finalise terms. Once these are agreed, we set up a second call to discuss the role in more detail, making sure we understand exactly what you’re looking for.

We start work immediately: we find potential candidates, get in touch with them, and interview them to make sure they’re the right fit. If we believe that they are, then we send the candidates to you. However, our service doesn’t end here. We stay in touch with the candidates throughout the process, ensuring that candidates have a smooth journey through the interview process and into a new role.

Throughout the search, we keep you updated on our progress, via both email and weekly progress calls. If you have any specific requests on how you’d like us to conduct your search, just ask.

How much does it cost?

ACELR8 subscription-based pricing is split in a small retainer fee for getting a dedicated recruiter onboard and a small fee per hire. This makes it cheaper, the more people you hire. Alternatively, depending on your hiring needs, we can also offer you a flat fee.

How do I find out more?

Get in touch! You can do so here or via the chat window in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.

Can I hire ACELR8 to come in-house?

That is exactly what we do! Our Talent Partners become part of your team and take over full-cycle recruitment. Book a call here to find out more.
