Frequently asked questions for employers
We designed Natrespro for companies that want to rely less on traditional hiring channels and want an efficient way to reach high quality natural resource professionals.
Our platform provides a simple, intuitive and easy way to quickly assess a candidate's key skills and areas of experience without reading traditional CVs. Every candidate has been screened and we only promote candidates who are actively interested in being contacted for employment.
You can also control your hiring costs far better, as we offer unlimited hiring potential for a fixed fee.
Before you can start connecting and messaging candidates, you will need to:

Generally speaking, candidates will be kept active on the platform as long as they are still looking for employment or project-based work. If the candidate has been on the platform for more than 75 days, we will check their activity levels and determine whether to keep them active or not.
Candidates may also control whether they are promoted, we actively encourage them to keep their profiles up to date and to de-activate as and when they find suitable employment.
The first contact with the candidate needs to be on Natrespro, after all you are more likely to receive a response though the platform and keep the candidate happy.
Usually, the candidate will provide interview/screening times for initial conversations to take place between you and the candidate. After that, the candidate will continue to go through your normal recruiting process. If you need any support, please contact your account manager.
