Find experienced Agile professionals

Recruiting doesn’t have to be a dirty word. It doesn’t have to be associated with pushy phone calls, low salary offers, and candidate volume over quality.

At Optilearn, we do things differently. Over the past few years, our focus has been on developing a candidate pipeline that we have personally vetted and in many cases, placed before. We help our clients by sourcing specific skills and requirements, whether that is for permanent roles or contract ones. If you need a niche skill or are simply struggling with recruiting professionals, then we can probably help.

Find Agile Professionals with optilearn
Optilearn Recruiting - finding agile professionals

We specialise in finding experienced Agile professionals- this includes Product Owners, Scrum Masters, and Agile Coaches. Really, we focus on any role that works within a complex and Agile domain. Although we mainly recruit into Government roles (those holding SC/DV clearance) we are confident we can find what you need.

You may be wondering how we have such a secure pipeline of security cleared professionals. It’s because we partner closely with Armed Forces groups who support those leaving the military by placing them into jobs. These candidates will have all of the right skills, but may need support transitioning into a different way of working. Alongside this, we work with other professionals through our network of training which you can see elsewhere on this website.

How our recruitment works

Our process is simple because recruitment is simple.

  • Optilearn Recruiting

    You provide us with a job requirement that includes the basic information – role, minimum requirements, salary, location etc.

  • Optilearn Recruiting

    If we believe we can help (we won’t lie and take on the requirement if we can’t), then we will share our standard contractual terms for you to sign.

  • Optilearn Recruiting

    We provide candidate information across for you to shortlist and interview – you own the process, but we are there to support and act as a candidate go-between. If you decide to make an offer, we will present it to the candidate and hopefully, they accept!

Honest terms - Recruiting

Our honest and transparent terms

We are transparent on our fees and terms upfront. If you would like to see a copy of our full contractual terms in advance, please contact us and we will be happy to provide them. In general, we find our clients ask us two questions: how much does your service cost and what protection do I have?

To address the first question, we charge 12% of a permanent candidate’s agreed remuneration package (if it’s in the contract you present to them, it’s included for calculation). For contractors, it’s 12% of the gross contract value and payable on renewal. In terms of protection, we offer a decreasing refund that is available over the first 2-3 months of a candidate’s time with you. If you decide to release them, we will refund a portion of our service payment.
