Yes, Recruitment Partners who have their own clients are eligible to work with Wisestep. If you have some clients common with Wisestep you cannot work with them through Wisestep. However, Wisestephas a huge breadth of Job Orders from many other companies that you can work on.


Yes, it is mandatory to include a candidate’s contact information at the time of submission.

All our clients require the candidate’s information to be submitted to them as part of the submission process, to check for duplication and also to save time in coordination and communicating withcandidates that are shortlisted for interviews.


All Employers, wish to see candidates that they do not already know, hence, if a candidate has already been submitted to an employer then it will be considered “duplicate” for that job order.

Wisestep, will inform the Recruitment Partner about it and will try to reverse market the profile for a suitable role with its other clients.

Additionally, once the candidates are submitted to the Employer then we will send out weekly status updates to the partners.


We can exclusively assign job orders to Recruitment Partners depending on their area of expertise, prior track record and geography of operation. However, Recruitment Partners need to realize thatthe employers might assign the same job orders to different vendors (in addition to Wisestep). Also, for job orders that have multiple positions to be closed or those that require quick turnaroundtime might be assigned to more than one Recruitment Partner.


Wisestep reserves the right to terminate contracts with its Recruitment Partners, in case of violation of terms, consistent poor quality or inconsistent delivery on its job orders.

Recruitment Partners can terminate the agreement by requesting to close their account.
