What is qyiik?
qyiik provides unparalleled access to talent through a single market place. This innovative exchange opens the way for both recruiters and job seekers to find natural matches and fulfill placements more efficiently in a fully electronic environment.

To be visible to specific people, you must join their talent bench. Nobody else can access your profile.

What tools help me identify the right resources?
qyiik is a multi-tenancy platform which allows job seekers to engage with every agency. As they use the platform their engagement creates a real-time profile. This information is always accurate, up to date and free. Agencies can quickly ascertain job seekers skills, interests, availability and work experience without having to gather and store this data in their own CRM system.
Free search, free post, what’s the catch?
There isn’t one. The search, post and all other stuff is free to use. qyiik was developed using open source software and some very clever technology. It was developed around the principal that recruitment should be candidate centric. qyiik allows the candidate to store and manage their data, not the agencies. It is a “pay on placement” business model with many clever functions that benefit both parties.
Can we access data for billing, payroll and team management?
Yes, and it is all free. The qyiik platform provides all the data you need in simple and easy to use reports. The data can be exported as a CSV file.How can I find skills for a weekend assignment?

Every business needs skills. A talent bench is a team of skilled people, ready and waiting. By adding people to your bench, they are granting you privileged access to them. You can enagage with them whenever you need. This means you can respond to your business needs instantly, without the cost of permanant staff.
- How do I know who is available or interested?
qyiik tells you. Job seekers manage their profile in real time. The job seeker is in full control. With every click or action in the app, they are updating their profile. Every hiring manager can see what they are interested in and when they can work.
- How much commission do you charge?
None. qyiik is not the employer, you are. We do not charge any commission. qyiik charges a small booking charge for managing the engagement. This is similar to the booking fee on train ticket or concert ticket. qyiik is a utility for you to book the skills you need when you need them.
- What happens if I don’t use the platform to hire?
Not a lot. We manage and track activity and can exclude those we feel are compromising the service. The proposition is simple. The more you hire and book through the platform, the easier it is for your business or agency to find people with the relevant skills. If you don’t book through the platform, your business is not seen as active.
