Recruitment can be a bit of a vicious circle for SME organisations. In order to grow and become more successful they need talented people. But to recruit these people takes time and recruitment expertise. Something that is often lacking within smaller companies.
There is of course a plethora of recruitment agencies ready and willing to help them with recruiting their key players. But this comes with, at times, a rather hefty price tag. Smaller organisations have less bargaining power and tend to be charged higher rates by recruiters. They can pay up to 25% of the annual salary to recruit a role. A few vacancies a year and this quickly adds up to a substantial amount. Something that smaller organisations could do without spending.
What can be done to save money on recruitment?
There is the simple option of doing it yourself. While it will no doubt save you money on recruitment, it will take up an inordinate amount of time. From reading and assessing the potential 100 CVs per vacancy, to speaking to and interviewing possible candidates and searching for those hidden gems on LinkedIn. Whoever is given the responsibility of hiring, will soon find that it can take over from their day-to-day tasks.
This is where we come in. We like to do things a little differently and have changed the way recruitment works. We’ve split the traditional recruitment process into three easy to understand modules. They give you the chance to only pay for the elements you need, whether that’s simply creating a pipeline of CVs for you to manage yourself to a full consultancy service that includes pro-active headhunting.
Our fees are payable upfront and range from £850 to £2,899. This represents a substantial saving compared to traditional agencies. Check out our savings calculator and you can see for yourself how you can save money on recruitment.
Don’t worry though, we’ve got over 20 years’ recruiting experience behind us, so you’ll still get an expert recruitment service, just at a new fairer price.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in then please get in touch and we can show you how we can help you find talented individuals and save money on recruitment at the same time.
