Frequently asked questions

We keep it simple and make it easy for you. We take your needs: type of expertise required, duration, country of need and rapidly match you with the SMW Partner who will manage your expertise requirement. Your SMW Partner will ask you further questions about your requirements and you’ll discuss any concerns and questions you have. Based on your requirements, the SMW partner will then begin reviewing, vetting and pre-qualifying possible candidates and will only share with you the pre-vetted, best-fit candidates.

No there isn’t, we work on No Cure No Pay-condition. If we can’t find you the right candidate you don’t owe us anything.
