How are you so much more affordable than the traditional recruitment agencies?

We are more affordable because, unlike the traditional recruitment agencies, we don’t charge a fee based on a % of a candidates salary.  Instead we partner with our clients on hourly consulting rates and fixed cost service levels. This makes us more affordable as our clients only need to pay for the services and expertise that they need and in turn we get remunerated for the services we provide.

Additionally, we have developed robust processes and principles and have implemented leading digital recruitment technology that enable us to provide high quality services at a lower cost than traditional recruitment providers. These systems include cloud-based information technology systems and processes based on Lean Management methodologies.

Is your fee payable irrespective of placement?

This ensures we can dedicate the time and follow the best processes to identify and select the very best candidate for your organisation. This also provides you the peace of mind that our advice is independent, advocating only for the best. Even though our fee is payable irrespective of placement we always want to ensure our clients receive value for money and an excellent service therefore we do offer our clients a guarantee.

Why did you decide to eliminate the % fee for placement model?
