What is Flat Fee Recruitment?

Flat Fee Recruitment (sometimes known as fixed fee recruitment) is the process in which a company charges an agreed price up front for a recruitment service. No extra charges are incurred, even if multiple hires are made.

Why use Flat Fee Recruitment?

Flat Fee Recruitment enables you to access an enormous talent pool of job seekers, previously only available to agencies and large PLC’s. It eliminates variable recruitment costs and multiple hire fees, and ensures that budget restraints don’t prevent you from sourcing the right talent that you need.

How will it save me money?

Our pay-as-you-go, transparent pricing structure ensures that you only pay for exactly what you need, when you need it. There are no costly long-term contracts and absolutely no hidden costs. And because you own all the candidates, whether you hire one person or five, you don’t pay a penny more than the initial agreed fee!

What is Unbranded Advertising?

Unbranded Advertising is where your job advert has no mention of your company name and does not use your logo. Any candidate who views the job role will not know the company to which they are applying.. This is ideal when you have a confidential vacancy or don’t want to publicise you are recruiting. However it means that candidates are less likely to apply for a position when they don’t know the organisation so it can affect the quantity and quality of applications.

What is Branded Advertising?

Branded advertising is where your job advert is branded using your company logo and brand name. This maximises the profile of your business to engage the jobseeker with the culture of your company. Jobseekers like to know who they are applying to work for, and advertising this way is proven to generate a higher response as well as increasing the calibre of candidate that applies.
