The CUSTOM package gives you access to the entire portfolio of our services, all the ingredients that make us unique for a successful and fully tailored selection process. ExpHire has a proprietary methodology that is based on Recruitment Building Blocks (elements that make up the selection process) and aims to achieve the end result: Company>Role>Candidate Fit.

We start with an initial meeting where we precisely define a client’s recruiting needs for a given role and crystallize them in our innovative and proprietary documents: the ExpHire Recruitment Canvas and the Role-Objectives Canvas.

The CUSTOM package is ideal for those who want to decide independently which parts of the recruiting process to outsource, and want to get an innovative and superior service compared to classic headhunting agencies, as our process involves selection with the help of Technical Experts who have direct skills and experience for the position you are looking to fill and Behavioral Experts who are able to assess the soft skills of candidates.


You freely compose the CUSTOM package by making use of our CUSTOM Calculator, a tool that allows you to independently choose services and quantities for each one. ExpHire is true to its values of complete transparency, so you can see the cost of each individual service and you can appreciate the effect of volume discounts that are well suited to the needs of medium and large companies and smart Headhunters who want to resell our exclusive services to their clients.


We offer tailored, qualified and affordable services.

Our Recruitment Building Blocks

Intro Call

The first conversation (completely free of charge) allows us to better explain to you the benefits of ExpHire and understand your current and future recruiting needs, as well as learn more about your company culture and values.

Match with Your Expert

When you decide to entrust us with a recruitment process we work to find the Technical Expert most closely aligned with your needs, the professional in our network who has more than 5 years of prior experience in the position being recruited.

ExpHire Recruitment Canvas

We arrange an initial call between you (internal recruiter/founder/hiring manager) and ExpHire (account manager) to go into the details of the position with a few questions that lead to the drafting of the ExpHire Recruitment Canvas, a document that summarizes the salient features of the company, the role, and the skills needed and guides the entire search.

Job Description Writing/Editing

The Technical Expert works on drafting a Job Description appropriate to the needs of the role and submits it to the client for approval and possible changes. If you already have a job description, the Expert provides feedback and any suggestions for updating it.

Job Premium Posting

ExpHire is responsible for posting and highlighting the job description on various portals (LinkedIn, Indeed, GitHub depending on the position) with paid premium placements to reach more candidates. We can name your Brand or maintain the privacy of your search with a post on your behalf.

Direct Sourcing & Vettting

In addition to attracting Active candidates (who are currently looking for a job), we also help identify Passive candidates who meet the selection requirements by searching the web and contacting them directly to entice them to apply for the position. We also test candidate skills (soft and hard).

First CVs Screening

Your Technical Expert, evaluates candidates' CVs, one by one, without using automatic keyword evaluation systems. Experience in the job sought helps the Expert select only the CVs that are most promising and in line with your needs.

Shortlist with Notes

The Technical Expert compares the selected profiles and prepares a shortlist of candidates to present to you including brief written notes explaining why each profile made it to the shortlist of candidates to be evaluated. We hand over the top profiles; it is up to you to reduce the shortlist to a number you think is ideal. (For example, your internal recruiter might make a short call or the hiring manager send them some questions via email or you can make simple assessments based on CVs.)

Expert Interviews Candidates with Notes

The Expert proceeds to organize and conduct extended interviews (1 hour each) with the a number of selected candidates that aim to understand the candidates' past experience, skills, potential, and fit with respect to the role to be filled. At the end of each interview, the Expert arranges to share with you a document with his/her notes (candidates answer the same set of questions so as to facilitate comparison among them).

Expert Builds the Test

The Expert works on developing a practice test designed to thoroughly evaluate the technical skills of shortlisted candidates. Note that at your preference we can send the technical test before the interview round.

Expert Reviews Tests & Notes

The Expert sends the test to the shortlist and once he receives back the completed ones, he grades them and drafts notes that are shared with you (the test is also shared).

Behavioral Test

We are able to submit a test to candidates to asses their behavioral traits and understand the possible fit in the existing team (right mix of personalities). We suggest to perform this check only on the final candidates and eventually follow with a soft skills interview.

Behavioral Interviews

We can match you with a Behavioral Expert, a psychologist with experience in the recruiting and assessment of soft skills, work attitude and potential of candidates. We suggest to perform this check only on the final candidates.

Language Fluency

Sometimes candidates demonstrate a good command of language during interviews that is then not reflected in daily work practice; this happens because of the standard nature of responses during an interview. We conduct a language fluency interview with a native speaker and share his/her notes with you.

Final Debrief (Make Decisions)

The ExpHire team and your team meet virtually one more time at the end of the selection process to arrive at a final decision with respect to extending an offer to one of the candidates.

Salary Guidance & Benchmarking

We help you define the final economic offer, based both on market benchmarks and on the expectations and demands that emerged from the finalist as well as on the direct experience on this matter of our Technical Expert.

Expert Technical References Check Calls & Notes

Our Technical Expert performs the technical reference check through separate calls to the chosen candidate's previous employers and shares notes with you.

Feedback & Learnings

We ask both candidates and you to give feedback (classic star system) with respect to our service and the Technical Expert, in a final call we discuss the results and more generally the lessons learned during the project.


In keeping with ExpHire’s policy of complete transparency, we are able to show you the prices of each Recruitment Building Block, something more unique than rare in the world of recruitment…

The prices you see below are the maximum prices for each service, but there are discounts that are based on the volume of services purchased over a year: 5% if you buy services for over €2500, 10% for over €5000, 15% for over €10000, and 20% for over €20000 (discounts are applied for service purchases throughout the year and are awarded as discount credits). 

We also offer special projects, such as assessment of the current figures employed in your company, and we invite you to contact us in this regard by starting with a first call.



Our CUSTOM offering is fully flexible and customizable and is basically for anyone who needs to hire permanent staff or long-term consultants. Even traditional headhunters can use our services in CUSTOM mode and resell them in white label to their clients.
You can create your own customized offer with our pricing calculator and get additional discounts upon reaching annual thresholds of purchased CUSTOM services.

Our method of recruitment is based on the use of Experts, for each mandate we use the support of external professionals, managers who specialize in the same area as the candidate, but with more seniority. The Expert assigned to the project must fully understand your needs, which is why the matching, the first meeting and the definition of the recruiting project are of vital importance and are the basis of every collaboration with ExpHire. Keep in mind that with this package you get free access to our innovative online platform for project management and communication with your assigned Expert/s.
Note: If you are an headhunter we have a favorable price for this service since you should already have covered most of the work with your client.

Each time you use a CUSTOM service, you contribute spending toward thresholds that give you increasing percentage discounts based on the total amount spent during the year in the form of a credit code to use the following year. Only the revenue generated by the purchase of CUSTOM services contributes toward the annual thresholds (other packages already enjoy significant discounts at source). Upon reaching €2500 spent over the course of a year you are entitled to a credit of €125 to use the following year, upon reaching €5000 you get a credit of €500, upon reaching €10000 you have a credit of €1500, and upon reaching €20000 you get an incredible credit of €4000 to use the following year. The credit can be used with CUSTOM services and does not contribute to the generation of revenue thresholds for the year in which they are spent.

We are willing to tailor our packages to your needs to the extent possible, otherwise we suggest you consider our CUSTOM offerings, where you can choose and select from our list of services. You may have identified within your normal selection process a weakness, an element that needs to change to reduce time spent on an activity, related costs, or to improve effectiveness. Let’s give 2 examples: 1. you waste too much time screening hundreds of CVs and/or you are not qualified to understand technical profiles thoroughly, our Technical Experts can take on this job 2. you would like to do technical tests to the shortlist of candidates, but no one in the agency or at the client has the time/skills to create them and judge the results, one of our Technical Experts can do it for you.

Traditionally, when you want to outsource your recruiting process, you turn to a recruiting/headhunting agency. These are rather expensive services that fail to significantly reduce the risks involved in hiring a new team member and the workload of the internal hiring process. ExpHire is different: we leverage a network of experts (in hard and soft skills) who help you identify the best possible candidate based on experience and who will reduce your internal recruiting efforts by at least 50%. Learn more on our Why ExpHire? dedicated page.

Suppose you are hiring an Affiliation manager to add to your marketing team. ExpHire provides you with an expert who has at least 5 years of experience in affiliate marketing and is therefore able to understand the real capabilities of each of your candidates throughout the process (CV screening, interviewing, testing, technical background check, offer phase). In addition, we can also provide soft skills experts (psychologists) to test and assess the behavioral aspects of top candidates as well.

We believe that the key to a successful hiring process is a balance between 4 elements: hard skills, potential, soft skills/attitude and cultural fit. Our technical Experts evaluate skills and potential, our psychology Experts evaluate soft skills/attitude, but you are the only one who can judge the cultural fit. This means that although we will offload you of the majority of the work we will still have to collaborate to assure the most successful placements.

We offer a different and, in our opinion, more useful type of service. We are able to keep our prices low because we are an entirely digital company, we have no offices, our Experts are busy during office hours with their daily work, and they only work with ExpHire to earn some extra money and as a form of “giving back.” Also remember that, unlike most headhunters, we do not work with “success fees”-we are a service provider and you pay for the services you request. Visit the prices page for more info.

We are a digital company founded by people who have made their careers in the online world, so for the time being we focus on roles that relate to the digital sector. Some might argue that everything is digital today, true, and we can help you with hiring processes in these areas: marketing, sales and business development, product and project management, software development, data and analytics, customer success and customer service, business and strategy management, creative and design, social, content and editorial, IT, systems, cloud and security.
