How our process works for Microsoft customers

  • A dedicated account manager will define your specific needs (1—2 hours)
  • Once terms of business are agreed, your account manager will deliver a shortlist of fully briefed and vetted Microsoft experts who are motivated to join your business (12 hours for contract/48-72 hours for permanent hires)
  • Interviews with previously screened candidates will be arranged (typically within 24 hours for contract, or dependent on your requirement and candidate availability)
  • When you’ve made a choice and picked a candidate to hire, we will negotiate on your behalf; for contract hires, we’ll even take care of all of the paperwork and invoice you after 30 days in order to get them started on your project right away. (Typically within 24 hours for contract/within the standard local notice period for permanent hires)
  • Your account manager arranges a check-in with you and the candidate (1 day, 7 days, 28 days)

“Having worked with Nigel Frank for two years recruiting professionals across the full Microsoft stack, we have been greatly impressed with not only the quality of candidates, but the numbers they have been able to provide. Having placed 16 roles, Nigel Frank has helped us to hire more individuals than anyone else. Because of their professionalism and ability to track and place skilled candidates, we look forward to working with them in the future to achieve any further staffing goals.”
