Do you Auction Talent Requirements?
We strongly believe in supporting agency margins hence the preferred methodology for the commercial engagement is fixed fee either put forward by the enterprise users or agency however some users under current practices reverse auction their requirements, so this has also been captured as a small % of the transactions on the solution.

So How do we Source Agencies?
Ubidy prides itself on supporting a Balanced and mutually beneficial exchange where high performing Agencies and Enterprise Employers work collaboratively with open communication to ensure the sourcing of the world’s best talent.
Opportunity First Principle
In order to support this Strategy, Ubidy has an Opportunity First Principle (OFP). This means that Employers and Employer Opportunities are scoped prior to the addition of niche Agencies. This strategy allows for the bespoke acquisition of the right agency for the right role.
By taking this approach, skills, industry and region can all be used in the acquisition campaign. This approach is what allows Ubidy to balance the Agency profile for Employers giving them a choice between niche regionalised, regionalised and global networks each with their benefits. Acquisition focuses on the Niche Regionalised and Regionalised agencies in acquisition. The Global network is proved with existing regionalised Agencies who have office locations which can encompass a new region.
Connecting Employers to Agencies
Our platform allows for these agencies to participate in new opportunities building their own profile, service area and in some cases industries. OFP is what has allowed Ubidy to successfully connect Employers to Agencies they may not have been aware of or been able to engage previously due to restrictions on agreements, PSA’s or simply limitations Agency search.
