Recruitment Fees are normally based on the final salary of the candidate and are typically charged as a flat percentage rate. We often uncover examples of agencies using different charge rates within the same organisation. This can leave the client exposed to a variety of additional charges, such as the situation where the same candidate is put forward by 2 different agencies and the employer having to pay both agencies. The whole charging mechanism employed by agencies often leaves employers feeling the charges are not proportionate to the work involved.
This is where we can help.
We review not only the typical recruitment costs but also; short-term contracts, the charges associated with offering a temporary staff a permanent position, penalty charges if the individual is deemed to be unsuitable, the additional fee incurred for extending temporary contracts and so on.
Many companies feel they have no overall visibility of the contracts in place, no benchmark to measure the performance of an agency, unable to establish if the agency is delaying the process or their own staff – we have the means to streamline the whole process, ensuring the selection process runs as smoothly as possible and we can introduce a few bells and whistles which can make a big difference. We aim to deliver a much smoother process with greater visibility, greater accountability and significant savings.
