CORONAVIRUS - What can we do to help?

Coronavirus or COVID-19:

Skillfinder International is here to help.

Contract and Consultancy solutions

Outsourcing/offshoring solutions – we have strategic partnerships with global providers of technical and financial expertise who can provide short term project based solutions to cover BAU and project functions. This removes the risk of hiring and offers a flexible, short term and immediate solution

Remote on-boarding – our compliance department verifies and on boards contractors to the most detailed level for our corporate clients. This is a service we can tailor to your needs to remove the pressures of on-boarding, particularly in current times when it may need to be done remotely

SOW Model - pay for what’s delivered not for the people that are hired. If you have project- based deliverables our SOW model can provide you with the confidence and assurance that your timelines will be adhered to, milestones hit and projects delivered on time

Permanent hiring  

Extended rebate terms – during these uncertain times when interviewing in person may not be possible, we can offer the reassurance of an extended rebate period, to take some of the risk away from our clients and help them to be able to continue hiring for vital
roles, even when conditions are not ideal. We will offer a 100% rebate for 3 months for any hires made on the basis of a telephone or video-based

Tailored solutions and payment terms – we will offer flexibility wherever we can to help our clients continue to hire. We have a range of products which can help depending on your need – reduced fees for exclusive hires; delayed payment terms for remote hires; volume discounts where multiple hires are required in a fixed period of time  

As the world goes into emergency lock down & in order to help keep people safe - we all need to do what we can to help each other. The pandemic is going to affect us all in a social & economic way too and so we would like to provide the following helpful information:

Latest advice on how to keep safe

  • Anyone with a fever or persistent cough should stay at home for seven days if they live alone or 14 days if they live with others. Anyone who lives with someone displaying Coronavirus symptoms should also stay at home for 14 days.

  • People who have to self-isolate, should ask others for help

  • Everyone should stop non-essential contact with others. This is particularly important for people over 70, those with underlying health conditions and pregnant women

  • People should work from home where they can

  • People should avoid places like pubs, clubs and theatres. This applies especially to those in large cities

  • People should only use the health services only where we really need to" - and can reduce the burden on workers by getting advice on your local health service website where possible

  • People should stop all unnecessary travel

  • Reach out (on email or telephone) to your neighbours to see how you might be able to help them should they need to self isolate

  • Assist the elderly in shopping for food and pharmacy services

  • Avoid physical contact wherever possible

Wherever possible employees and freelancers must try to work from home. It is important to keep our loved ones and communities safe. After that we need to work hard to continue life and work in what might be a long lasting 'new normal'.

We are going to have to try and continue the important work we are doing in all the work places that rely on us to complete our jobs effectively and help support the wider economy.
