Flat fee recruitment

Flat fee recruitment is the method of the future. Knowing you can accurately budget for your ongoing recruitment requirements is essential in today’s market.Flat fee recruitment is just, fair. Invoices should be a reflection of the work involved for a particular project. Does it involve any more work to find an £32,500 level accountant than it does for a £35,000 level accountant. Of course not. Certainly, not to the extent of up to £750.

I for one feel that transparent recruitment is essential and agreeing costs at the start of a project should be the norm. Regardless of whether you are using a recruitment agency or a flat fee recruiter it makes more sense to establish the costs at the beginning of the project.

Every company needs to be able to budget.

It’s also avoids any hiring decisions being impacted by recruitment costs. This should never happen. Even if you plan to not use a flat fee recruiter, ask your recruitment agency to quote you as a flat fee – most of them will, although it won’t be for £139 or less (shameless plug).

What our clients say about us

We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
