Recruitment portal Aasaanjobs has launched a recruitment process outsourcing segment, enabling companies to outsource hiring. According to the company, it currently has over 50 recruiters from various industries, and is especially targeting the BFSI (Banking, Financial services and Insurance) and IT sectors, which require high volume hiring.

The new feature will let companies sign up with Aasaanjobs for sourcing, screening, interviewing and onboarding of the suitable candidates listed on the portal for a long term, offering replacements as and when required. Note that it currently offers a similar feature, but for contractual work, where the company also provides administrative support for salaries etc. It’s not clear if the new RPO segment will also provide administrative support and such, or how much it will cost. We have asked Aasaanjobs for more details and will update when we hear back.

Aasaanjobs focuses on blue collared jobs, like for nanny, cashier, content writer, data entry operator, delivery boy, customer care executive, engineer, driver etc., and had recently forayed into the IT recruitment vertical. The platform is free for users posting CVs and charges employers a percentage of the CTC of a hired person.

The platform competes with companies like Naukri, Times Jobs, Monster India and Quikr which offer recruitment portals. However, Aasaanjobs does offer some additional features like screen and matching candidates and scheduling interviews, other than the newly launched RPO segment. Founded in 2014, the company is currently present in 12 cities including Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata among others. It had raised $5 million in funding in February this year.
