How it works

SourceOwls is a recruitment platform built for the busy recruiter

  • Source and Recruit qualified candidates
  • Conduct one qualifications assessment via phone or video call
  • Provided the candidate is qualified and interested supply them with the client and jobs details
  • Submit an up-to-date resume from the candidate in the SourceOwls platform
  • You will receive notifications each time the candidate status is changed

That's it - your job is done!

You are rewarded for quality submissions

  • Every new SourceOwls Recruiter starts out as an Elf Owl. As you begin to recruit, and submit candidates to our Job Posters they will review, accept, or decline your submissions.
  • Your payout will remain as an Elf Owl until you have received 5 submission rankings. At this point, your ranking will either stay the same or be adjusted to an Owlet or a True Owl.
  • True Owls receive the largest payouts and are considered our Elite SourceOwls team. As long as your acceptance ratio is 50% or greater you will receive the maximum payout.
  • As a True Owl, your client engagement will also increase.

Owl Types
