Add a New Agency

Note: Users with Site Admin permissions can add new external recruiting agencies to Greenhouse.

Adding agencies to Greenhouse enables you to track them as a Source in your recruiting efforts. You can also invite individual recruiters from the agency to submit candidates through the agency portal in Greenhouse.  The individual recruiters will be tracked as Referrers

To add a new agency, click on the Sourcing tab from your Dashboard. From the Sourcing page, click on Agencies from the left-hand panel.

From your Agencies management page, click on Add Agency, enter the name of the agency, and click on Create Agency.


To invite the agency to submit candidates through Greenhouse, you will need to add at least one individual agency recruiter to the agency. Learn how to add an agency recruiter here.

Once you've added an agency, you will be able to select it as the Source of existing candidates.

    It would be nice if we could add the details of the agency contract for example: 20% charge on base salary payable 30 days from hire... and also a place to store the signed agency contract

    Hi Ursula,

    Thank you for your feedback! I'm going to submit your idea to the product team and I'll let you know their response next week.

    Is it possible to manage agency contracts through Greenhouse? For example, it would be helpful to send a standard fee agreement to agency partners via Docusign similar to how offer templates are used for candidates. Thank you!

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for writing in!

    The goal of the Agency Portal is to allow agencies to easily submit candidates for jobs.

    Currently, we're not adding functionality to manage agency contracts as that is more in the realm of vendor management. However, if this changes in the future, the best way to keep tabs on this will be within the Product Roadmap forum in the Greenhouse Community:

    Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions on this!
