What’s Included For $12.75

When starting in recruitment your initial aim should be to keep your costs to a minimum.

Until you start to see that placement money rolling in!

This is why we have created a monthly package that only costs $12.75. This gives you access to all the tools required without breaking the bank. 

So let’s look at what’s included in the $12.75 fee. 

The Giig starter pack was built to give you access to a selection of CRM & ATS features with the added ability to design and host your bespoke company website. 

Website Builder

The Giig website builder allows you to create your website and build your candidate database using the same tool.

You no longer need multiple subscriptions.

You can manage everything in the same place. 

The ‘FREE FOREVER’ version of Giig does allow you to design your website but it contains Giig branding and is hosted on a Giig Hire domain ( 

By upgrading from the Free Forever plan to the Giig starter pack you can remove the Giig branding from your website and attach your website to your custom URL. 

All for only $12.75 per month. 

CV Parsing 

The Giig starter pack also comes with the ability to parse 50 candidate CVs a month. Giig’s CV parser will scan documents and pull the personal info, contact details, key skills, education, experience and certificates from every candidate’s CV. 

This ensures that candidate details are accurate and the data is loaded into the system correctly. 

Ensuring candidates are correctly skilled means you can find them via Giig’s advanced search functionality. 

AI Credits 

As a small business/freelance recruiter, it’s important to be as efficient as possible with the time that you have available.

Using AI allows you to cut down time spent on admin tasks allowing you to focus on the human element of recruitment.

The ‘Giig Starter’ subscription allows you to utilise AI to write:

  • Website Content
  • Job Specs
  • Candidate Pitches 
  • Company Summaries

Through integrating with ChatGPT, Giig allows you to action the creation of content using a single click of a button.

Each AI functionality can be actioned 10 times monthly with the credits resetting at the start of the month. If you require increased credits, you can get unlimited usage by signing up for the Giig Plus package. 

Careers Page — Webhook

Every recruiter needs a place to advertise their open jobs! 

The Giig platform comes with a careers page where you can list the roles that you currently have available. 

This careers page is automatically connected to your Giig website or can be attached to an external website. If you already have your own. 

The webhook that allows you to connect your careers page to an external site is part of the Giig Starter & Giig Plus+.

It’s not available as part of the FREE FOREVER
