Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common questions.

No, absolutely not, that’s not how it works. Job Scouts is a platform that connects you (the ‘Hirer’) with members of the public (the ‘Scouts’) who may know a person who will fit your role. The Scout then introduces the Candidate to you through the platform.

Job Scouts in no way shape or form goes out and attempts to find the person for you. We are neither a recruitment agency nor an online job board.

No. If you post a job here, it is not made public. It is only visible to Scouts who fit the criteria upon which you are looking to recruit.

For example, if you have chosen to make your job visible to Scouts who live in the Melbourne area, then the job will be visible to only those people.

There is no way to search the available jobs to apply as a candidate.

Whatever you want. You get to choose the amount you wish to pay for an introduction or for a placement. It is entirely up to you.

Job Scouts will provide recommendations for certain roles based on benchmarks across the system, but there is no maximum or minimum mandated.

Typically, if a job is of high value and the person required to fit the role is hard to find, then the recommended fee is higher. By contrast, if the person you’re looking for is easy to find, the fee you may wish to pay would be lower.

You will be paid a fee per interview held and per placement.

Placement fees are split across the probationary period. This will depend on how the hirer chooses to split the amount. It may be 50/50 or 80/20 or something different. It is entirely up to the hirers discretion.

Money you’ve earned from successful interviews or placements is paid to your Job Scouts wallet.

Once in your wallet, you may choose to leave it there to earn interest. Interest rates in Job Scouts are very very generous and are paid to your account at the end of each month.

If you wish to withdraw your money, you can do so by connecting your credit or debit card to Job Scouts and choosing ‘withdraw’.
