Our charges: transparent and competitive.
The cost of our services vary.
Last year we charged as little as £35 per day for an interim media manger and as much as £75,000 for the permanent placement of a senior communications leader. Like many of our competitors we charge a percentage of the placed candidate’s first year’s remuneration, between 25% and 33%.
However, the key criteria for us is not the percentage. It’s the total amount we are going to charge you and if it will cover our costs and allow us to make a 10% profit. The other key criteria in agreeing how much we charge is if we think we are going to enjoy working with you and are confident that we will delight you.
Will we negotiate on our charges? Yes.
The main factor that influencers our decision to reduce our charge is the difficulty of the position you ask us to fill. We will take into account the scarcity of the ideal candidate, the complexity of the recruitment process, the speed you need a shortlist and how busy we are.
Our ambition is always to work with our clients in partnership. So the quality and quantity of commitment from HR, line and other key stakeholders in an assignment is also a key consideration.
Our industry still thinks in percentages. Our clients think in total cost of hire. When we know the specifics of your hiring needs we will propose what we think is a fair price for the appropriate strategy to ensure your hire is successful.
