Interim Recruitment: A Flexible Hiring Strategy for Fintechs in 2023

Grow your team with fixed-term contracts

Interim recruitment is a game changer for companies in dynamic industries like FinTech and SaaS who seek to grow their business and team in the most sustainable and profitable way. Temporary work solutions where you can hire freelancers for project-based fixed-term jobs can elevate your growth strategy by eliminating the risk of future layoffs and over-promising. 

Embracing a flexible hiring strategy to grow your business

After experiencing considerable layoffs since 2021, many digital banking companies and SaaS leaders in Europe have shifted their business strategy from growth-centric business plans to more stable ones. However, ongoing innovation and business development still require hiring new talents and getting help for niche expertise from specialists for new projects. 

Therefore, giving up on talent acquisition is not an option for any fast-growing industry. By considering the recent situation of the job market, companies need to embrace a smarter and more agile approach while they’re hiring new employees.

What is interim (contract) recruitment? 

Interim (contract) recruitment is a type of recruitment process that looks for candidates to fill short-term roles that have a fixed lifespan. It is becoming increasingly popular due to the rise of flexible working arrangements, allowing people to work from home and be free from the traditional long-term employer. Contract recruiters provide a service to employers to find suitable candidates for these short-term roles. 

Why is interim (contract) recruitment beneficial? 

Interim recruitment provides employers with access to talented professionals who are available for a set period of time, making it an ideal solution for companies with a specific project or task in mind. It allows you to attract better talent in a very short amount of time with less risk for your business. 

Besides companies, qualified candidates for especially IT and FinTech positions are now more eager to become freelancers due to opportunities like using and developing their specializations at their best. Employees benefit from this flexibility and freedom, since it allows them to explore different options and gain valuable experience without having to commit to a long-term contract. 

A flexible hiring option is giving space for both employers and employees. It’s less risky for the employers and allows them to chase the most lucrative opportunities and switch between talents according to their business plan’s recent or near future needs. 

How to hire someone for a fixed-term contract job? 

For a contract recruitment process to run smoothly, it’s necessary to have the infrastructure and resources to review and sort out a large number of candidates quickly. Despite the large talent pool of freelancers and fixed-term job seekers, evaluating and matching these talents with the right position is not as easy as it seems. 

Since the human resources departments of most companies are generally more experienced in permanent recruitment, they usually struggle with the hiring processes of contract-based employees. The help of a recruitment agency as a mediator, in this case, makes the whole process easier for both parties.
