Fixed Rate Recruitment
Fixed rate recruitment is now leading the way in cost-effective recruitment solutions. Some flat fee recruitment companies (such as Seven Acorns) have reported January sales increases of 80% on the previous year. This clearly demonstrates that recruitment budgeting is currently at the fore-front of financial planning and that many businesses are realising the benefits of a fixed price package.
Why is fixed rate recruitment so cost-effective?
Fixed rate recruitment agencies charge a single fee to post vacancies across a wide range of the most popular online job boards. Some have even started to target social media sites. They then gather and sort applications before supplying companies with the most suitable pool of candidates for the position.
In short, using fixed rate recruitment agencies saves time, money and administration. It also allows the vacancy to be as far-reaching as possible, maximising access to those searching for work online.
How does fixed rate recruitment help businesses?
In the current economic climate, businesses need to predict and budget accordingly for recruitment costs. Businesses also need to advertise in a way that targets the modern internet-savvy job-hunter. A fixed rate avoids the mounting costs and administration of individually targeting different websites and advertising mediums. It also avoids agonising about which job board to target or how to co-ordinate applications arriving from a variety of sources. Fixed rate recruitment agencies can offer bespoke services with everything from helping to design the advert, to ensuring your vacancy appears prominently on search engines. This way, there is no need for you to be a recruitment expert to find the best employees for your business.
Such companies have a dedicated team who can help with designing adverts, screening and filtering applicants from multiple sites and arranging interviews. Flat fee recruitment is the most cost effective option if you want to move beyond a single job board and it would save the administration time of juggling more than one advertisement yourself.
