“With subscription recruiting, it’s so much easier on your own cash flow, it’s easier to plan and it’s easier to recruit knowing that you don’t need to pay it all now".

We only charge the full fee if the placed candidate stays for the length of the subscription. So if the candidate leaves half way through, you only pay half of the fee.

You'll be able to relax, safe in the knowledge that the incentives are aligned between recruiter, candidate and company. It's a model built on trust.

You can forget about traditional hiring models, where recruiters submit too many candidates hoping for the best that one will stick until they're paid.

"The model that Atlas One provides is really good in a way that we have longer time to assess whether that person is a really good fit”.

By spreading the recruiting fee over 10 - 20 months, you can be paying up to 90% less over the first three months compared to contingency and retained models.

You can continue towards your growth targets with a weight taken off your shoulders.

You'll eliminate huge up-front costs that can shorten your runway.


It’s just so much easier for us to say yes to 5% of the fee a month per hire than it is to commit to an unknown result and fee and many thousands of euros on the outset."

— Sebastian Heinrichs -Co-founder and Group CEO at Freska

Avoiding up front fees means being able to reapply that capital towards more key hires.

Stagger your recruiting efforts at a pace that suits your company and cash flow.

You'll be able to build your business faster by growing your team faster. It's as simple as that.


"It was incredible to see just how fast Freska expanded after we filled those key roles, especially CTO and CMO. Within 6 months, the company doubled in size".

— Nick Livingston, Head of Recruitment
