Does One Circle screen HR consultants?
There are measures in place to assure you that One Circle is a fair and reliable HR talent marketplace.
We have a process to verify that consultants are who they say they are, and you also have access to information that gives you a sense of each consultant’s skill level. This includes:
- Authenticating their email address.
- Authenticating their residence address.
- Authenticating their bank account details.
- Each consultant is free to negotiate their own project fee. You may still want to negotiate the overall project fee as consultants may accept a lower offer if the project sounds exciting to them.
- Transparency in providing each consultant project success scores and client feedback on past projects.
- Our platform messaging option provides you with the possibility of requesting a sample of their work or asking further questions to dig deeper into their experience and capabilities.
- One Circle provides you with insights on the consultant’s personality profile to get a better sense of the person you are dealing with.
In short, engaging a consultant through One Circle, requires less screening of prospective individuals, than if you hired an employee through traditional means. It is however, in your best interest to ensure their skills and experience meet the needs of your specific project. Bespoke screening questions can be included in your initial project post and One Circle platform provides you with chat tools to interview finalists, if you chose. In the event of you facing any challenges, we are always here to help, through our chatting option.

- One Circle Payment Assurance. We only release payment for work you authorize.
- Invoicing and reporting. We provide access to your invoices and transaction history.
How do I pay my consultant and what does it cost?
One Circle makes paying consultants simple and secure. Choose to pay using MasterCard, Visa, or EFT. Payments are subject to a 3.5% processing fee.
I get an official invoice?
Yes, all payments to consultants have invoices that can be downloaded or printed.
Do I have to file tax forms for my consultant?
You should not be responsible for filing taxes for your consultant, who will be considered as an external consultant or independent contractor to your company. The consultant will personally take care of their own individual taxes which are independent of your tax liabilities.
We’re not tax experts for your specific business, so you should consult a tax professional if you have questions or concerns about this or any other tax-related issues.
