How recruitment costs spread out over time

Our subscription model spreads recruitment costs evenly over 20 months, at just 1% of the new hire's salary per month. Contingency and retained models require payment up-front or in the first 3 months respectively.
Candidates annual gross salary
Employment duration (months)
If the successful candidate leaves your company before 20 months is up, subscription payment ends.

Streets Ahead Of The Rest

Streets ahead of the rest

Pay for what you get. As it stands, the other models on the market offer far less security and they often work out considerably more expensive.
Most recruitment firms work on a commission based model. The fee is paid in full upon hire, which leaves no incentive for the recruitment service to place long-term candidates, promoting a hidden process with no transparency for clients.
Retainer Search
The other main option on the market is the retainer search model. Companies pay in 3 installments; the first on receipt of the long list, the second on receipt of the shortlist and the final payment when the candidate is placed. Still, there’s no incentive to place a long term hire, and the process is only semi-transparent.

The amount charged during the search period is based on an estimate of the salary for the position you are looking to fill. Upon placement and confirmation of salary, the following payments are adjusted to rectify any difference between the initial estimate and the confirmed salary.
