Lionstep is a recruiting support for sourcing qualified talent. Our platform matches your open job position with hundreds of thousands of talent profiles using smart algorithms, and later validates them in a personal call with a Lionstep Recruiter. Once we have validated candidates for qualification, availability and interest in your job, you will receive the contact details and can invite them for an interview or hire. All validated candidates can be imported into your Applicant Tracking System. You can monitor every process in our Lionstep Platform and receive instant feedback. This ensures a transparent and efficient service for our clients.
Lionstep’s talentpool consists of candidates that actively apply to Lionstep through a registration process and candidates established through active sourcing. Our active sourcing assures that we address all qualified candidates, even the ones who are not searching for a new job but are open for a new opportunity. Once we discuss the job requirements and profile with a client, our algorithm sorts through hundreds of thousands profiles. On average, one search run leads up to hundreds of matched profiles from which we pick up to 60 most suitable candidates. Interested candidates will be qualified by a Lionstep Recruiter in a call and once validated the contact details are shared with our client.
First you need to contact us through the form and provide the job details or the link to the open vacancy. Once you select a pricing package (essentials, professional or enterprise) we can immediately begin the search.
At Lionstep all our processes are transparent in your account. You can see all the candidates that we have contacted for an open position, and receive the contact details once a talent has been validated by a Lionstep recruiter. Our platform even provides feedback on why talent declines an offer. You can view statistics on reasoning and industry benchmarks. A powerful data insight to improve your recruiting strategy!
This really depends on your open position, type of industry and market conditions. On average we contact up to 60 best profiles for one search run and receive feedback within 3 weeks. Talent that is extremely specialized and in very high-demand could take longer, between 6-9 weeks. Please ask your Account Manager for more details.
Yes, we contact all candidates personally in a call. While the first step of matching is done with our smart algorithm technology, the second step involves a personal call between a Lionstep Recruiter and the matched candidate. This contact is done to further qualify them based on your specific requirements and killer questions. We want to make sure that our candidates match your requirements on salary, start of hiring, skills/experience and interest in your job.
Yes, we advise all our clients to think about killer questions, that are necessary for fulfilling the ideal job profile. The account manager supports this very important process of developing killer questions within the professional and enterprise packages. The essentials package requires clients to provide the account manager with the killer questions.
A killer question is asked/investigated in a personal call to candidates on your behalf. This question should be answerable with Yes or No. Only talents that provide the right answer are a match and will be worth one credit. Generally, the answers to these killer questions are not easily found by scanning a profile with algorithms. It requires an actual person to investigate the inquiry in a personal conversation. This is done by our Lionstep Recruiters who have experience in conducting interviews and inspecting talents.
Yes, many of our clients use our service as an added recruiting tool within their existing recruiting (inhouse) processes. We work closely with inhouse recruiting teams to provide support when needed, depending on the course of the business. Inhouse recruiting teams use Lionstep for various purposes: - When a client requires fast scaling, and suddenly has multiple open positions - To expand and take advantage of our talentpool, which includes both active and sourced talent - Using our Premium Services such as technical interviews, reference checks or extended personal interviews.
Our recruiting solution provides unique service excellence. We have digitized the recruiter and optimized the whole recruiting process. Our smart algorithm tackles the challenge of going through various channels to find talent and then match it to job profiles. Our Lionstep Recruiters then do the most challenging task of sourcing, which is the first initial contact. In a personal call they ensure candidates are qualified, available and interested in your open job position. Digitizing and optimizing the recruiting processes, allows us to offer a pay-as-you-go pricing model that is cheaper than traditional services, that often charge you 15-30% of the person’s annual salary as a commission. Instead, with Lionstep you pay as you go with our credit system. This makes Lionstep a unique recruiting solution by combining very complex, multi-dimensional, and different channels all together.
LinkedIn is just one of the possible platforms to use in recruiting. Lionstep however uses all available platforms to source talent. Our recruiting service tackles the complexity of contacting numerous qualified talents on various platforms as efficiently as possible.
Our service excellence is what drives Lionstep. We not only use technology to match profiles to your open position, but also validate them through a Lionstep Recruiter in a personal call. The validation requires a check for all: qualification, availability and interest. To ensure you receive the right candidates, the job requirements need to be accurate. Please contact your account manager for more details.

Our pricing model implements the flexible “pay-as-you-go” model. Your account works like a prepaid phone. You purchase credits and load up your Lionstep account. These credits are used to service your account. If you have an open vacancy you can use the credits to find qualified talent. One search run is equal to 2 credits. After that, each validated candidate will be equal to 1 credit. We will charge you for credits if the talent was personally validated for qualification, availability and interest. Please check our pricing page for more details.
It depends on what type of vacancy, in what industry and your profile requirements. However, we can say that filling one vacancy will require an average of 5-7 credits. This is made up of the calculation: 2 credits for a search run, and then 1 credit for each validated candidate, meaning a total of around 3 validated talents per vacancy. For very complex, high-demand talent, a second search run might be required, which increases the credits needed to fill your vacancy.
No worries, you can use all your credits for future jobs too. Credits are not connected to one job, but instead work to service your account. If you have an open vacancy you can use them, if not, you wait until you need them. The only limit is that credits are valid for 12 months, after that they expire.
Your account is still accessible, even if you run out of credits. You are only limited by the fact that you can’t run a new candidate search to fill a new vacancy.
The credits are valid for 12 months.
You can pay with all known Credit Cards (Visa, Master and American Express). You can also talk to one of our Sales agents if you prefer an invoice.
Yes, if for whatever reason you wish to cancel the ongoing search, please inform us immediately. The initial service fee credits will be charged. However, the search is then closed. Please check the details with your account manager.
The hiring process can be a very complex task within an organisation. We can ensure the qualification based on the factors you share with us. However, cultural aspects also impact decision making.
