4. Employer fees, rights and obligations – pay per hire

4.1 Provided services and active period

Under the pay per hire agreement, the employer will only pay a fee if they hire a candidate discovered through workvalues.io, and their job can be active on the platform as long as the position they’re hiring for remains unfilled.

However, the employer must confirm every 90 days that each job is still active, and we’ll refresh the publishing date of the job to reassure candidates that all openings on workvalues.io are valid and up to date. If the employer fails to confirm this update for any position, we’ll automatically remove the job from the platform and consider the pay per hire contract terminated.

Moreover, it is the employer’s obligation to remove any position from workvalues.io that becomes inactive at any given time.

Apart from the guarantee of payment only upon delivering a hire, the employer will have access to up-to-date unlimited candidate profiles that match their job requirements, together with the ability of contacting them through direct messages on the platform. For pay per hire job listings, we only offer a direct apply option.

4.2 Pay per hire broken down fees *

For any pay per hire position, workvalues.io will charge 8-12% of the gross annual salary of a hire.

Standard fee – 8% of gross annual salary

To this basic fee, others can be added, up to a maximum fee of 12% of the hire’s gross annual salary, as follows:

  • Seniority
    • 1% - mid-senior or more than 3 years of experience
    • 2% - senior or more than 5 years of experience
  • Technical roles (software developers, engineers etc.) – extra 2%

The pay per hire model is intended only for full-time positions, but if the employer ends up contracting a candidate that they discovered through workvalues.io as a freelancer, they will pay a flat fee of 1500 EUR.

If an employer hires a candidate on a fixed term contract, for a period lower than 12 months, the above fees apply to the total remuneration for the fixed contractual period, instead of the gross annual salary.

However, if at the end of the contract, within a period of 90 days, the employer or any other company in their group rehires the candidate under a new employment or service agreement, the fee is recalculated as follows:

  • - If the candidate is rehired full time: 8-12% * (total remuneration of the candidate from the multiple employment contracts for the first 12 months)
  • - If the candidate is rehired as a freelancer: 8-12%*fixed contract remuneration + 1500 EUR

* All prices are exclusive of VAT.

4.3 Proof of hire

The employer has the obligation to inform us of any hire made through workvalues.io, by sending the employment contract or service agreement made between them and any of our candidates within 15 days from the signing date of the contract.

4.4 Payment conditions

The employer is liable to pay the full fee to workvalues.io within 30 days from the signing date of the employment contract with any candidate discovered through workvalues.io, given as a match to their pay per hire listings.

The hiring fee should be paid if a candidate is hired anytime within 12 months from the moment the employer discovered their profile on workvalues.io, irrespective of whether their job is active on the platform anymore or not, or if the conversation between the parties took place elsewhere.

If the employer hires more than one person discovered through workvalues.io or ends up hiring them for another position than that originally published on the platform, they are liable to pay the full fee as explained in section 4.1 for each hire. This provision extends to hires that the employer makes on positions published in the past or active on workvalues.io under a pay per job pricing model if the discovery of the candidate happened through a pay per hire listing.

The employer is also liable to pay the full fee if they introduce a candidate to a third party that hires them within 12 months after being discovered through a pay per hire listing on workvalues.io.

4.5 Exclusions from payment

The employer doesn’t have to pay workvalues.io a fee if they can produce proof of a positive two-way communication happening between them and the hire at most 3 months before discovering them through workvalues.io.

We define positive two-way communication as a conversation where both parties were engaged, either the candidate responding positively to an approach/offer from the employer or the other way around, leading to an active hiring process. If any of the parties rejected the offer of the other at the time of that conversation, we consider the engagement on workvalues.io to be the one generating the hire, making the employer liable to pay the fee.

4.6 Hiring guarantee

If the employer hires a candidate discovered through a workvalues.io pay-per-hire listing (see 4.4) that leaves the employer within 90 days and is not rehired under a new employment or service agreement within another 90 days by them or any other company part of the same group, we will reactivate the job and keep it open until a new hire is found. However, we don’t provide a money refund.

If you prefer so, you can use this extended free service as a deduction to hire for another position instead.

The 90-day guarantee is only valid if the hire resigns or is laid off purely based on competence. If the employee is let go as part of massive layoffs, company restructuring or any other cost reduction process, the guarantee doesn’t apply.

4.7 Damages

If the employer fails to inform workvalues.io of the hire within 15 days from signing an employment contract or service agreement, and provide proof of hire, they are liable to pay damages of 15% of the gross annual salary for that position or the value of the services provided, in addition to the hiring costs.

4.8 Delayed payments

Any day of delay of the payment above the 30 days from the signing date of a contract between the employer and a candidate discovered through workvalues.io, adds an extra 20 EUR to the initial invoice.

4.9 Payment methods

The fees must be paid by bank transfer within the agreed period. Any issues regarding your payments should be directed to billing [at] workvalues.io.

5. Employer’s fees and obligations - pay per job

5.1 Provided services and active period

Under the pay per job pricing model, the employer can publish a job that will be directly recommended to all candidates on the platform that match their job requirements. Jobs can only be published after a proof of payment is made.

After the job is published, the employer will receive up to 5 matching candidates from our database that rank the best against your job requirements, together with the ability to reach out to them through direct messages on the platform. However, if we can’t produce that many candidates with at least a 45% matching score, we reserve the right to deliver less or none.

Under the pay per job pricing model, the employer can opt for a direct apply option through workvalues.io or they can redirect candidates to an external link to submit their applications.

The standard active period of a job is 1 month, extended each month until the employer inactivates the job.

5.2 Payment conditions

In order to publish a job under the pay per job pricing model, the employer must pay an upfront fee of 150 EUR + VAT. Publishing the job activates a monthly subscription that the employer can cancel anytime, without notice, before the beginning of the next billing period, by deleting their job, canceling their subscription or marking the job as fulfilled.

5.3 Payment options

As a standard procedure, the payment is done by card, directly on the platform. If you want to pay for our services via bank transfer or have any issues regarding your payments, contact us at to billing [at] workvalues.io.
