I thought it is about time I let you into a secret – we can save you over 66% of your current recruitment agency costs or, if you currently do it yourself, probably 33%.
We have a client – a Technology Protection start up that has a massive presence in the US and is expanding into Asia. They offer mobile security devices for your phone so, say you are out at a bar and your phone is lost or stolen, you will have a new one delivered to you with all the content of the original – within 24 hrs. I, for one, would love that security…
They needed to hire their senior team in preparation for ramping up to a headcount of 200. At the time we partnered with them, they had the CEO, CFO and Director of HR – they needed to find the rest of their senior team. What we offered them was a highly experienced recruitment team able to liaise with senior execs – plus a bespoke service:
- we wrote the ads and placed them in SEEK
- culled & appropriately rejected the unsuccessful applicants
- phone screened and coordinated interviews
- provided verbal feedback
- completed reference checks and organised background checks
Some of the salary packages were $200k for which an agency would typically charge 25% of total compensation – we charged an hourly rate and, effectively, played their temporary ‘in house’ recruiter.
Guess what the difference was – on average $4,500 vs. $50k!
Plus all those offered roles accepted and we are yet to have a fall off. The applicants loved how they were managed and treated throughout the process and the business has money left over to invest in other things.
