FAQ: Why are clients only permitted to be introduced to one contractor per project task?

The clarity of the contractor's published profile stating hourly rates, skills and capabilities allows clients to look through available candidates and select the most appropriate contractor for the required task. Therefore, there is no need for the client to interview a larger number of contractors saving time and money for both client and contractor. Our introduction statistics prove the success of this procedure:

  • 78% of all clients ask for an introduction to one contractor only, 17% request introductions to two contractors.
  • Only 5% of the clients wish to be introduced to three or more contractors. In this case, only the first selected will be introduced.
  • 37% of our introductions result in active projects - significantly more than other introduction approaches.

Should the client find that the nominated contractor is not suitable, then, they are free to select another one for introduction.

If you wish to be introduced to more than one contractor, we can offer you, however, that you pay the introduction fee on behalf of the contractors. In this case please write in the project description: 'I wish to be introduced to more than one contractor per project task and will pay the introduction fee of two hourly rates on behalf of the contractor.'
