What exactly is flat fee recruitment?
Flat fee recruitment is currently a more and more popular online recruitment service for employers, offering many of the advantages of online recruitment with the advantage of your own dedicated recruitment consultant.

Nowadays tech-savvy employers are using online job boards to recruit directly themselves at a fraction of the cost of a traditional recruitment consultant.

However, even smarter recruitment companies have spotted this gap in the market, introducing a new recruitment solution which is being distributed as ‘flat fee recruitment’. Typically, this recruitment solution is up to 70% more cost-effective than a traditional recruitment agencies offering. Flat fee recruitment offers employers a recruitment solution that negates the need to pay high recruitment fees or spend hours if not days vetting unsuitable applications.

How does flat fee recruitment work
In most cases, the flat fee recruitment process can be carried out in 3 easy steps.

Submit a Vacancy

This involves filling in a web-based form detailing the requirements of the role, a person spec, working hours, job perks, working hours, salary etc.

Ammend your job opening
After you've submitted your vacancy you are able to usually amend it as many times as you like during the campaign. Some recruitment companies also give you access to an in house copywriter who will tweak your advert to ensure that it is optimised and fit for purpose.

Candidates are filtered
Once your vacancy is live, a competent CV response team will manually filter and screen the C. V’s to any criteria you stipulate. Only candidates with the relevant qualifications and experience are put forward for the position. A technique called the Myers Briggs Type’ indicator is often used to vet each C. V. This is the most widely used personality questionnaire worldwide and describes an individual’s personality preference.

The benefits of flat fee recruitment

Using a flat fee recruitment service isn’t all about the cost savings, with this brand of recruitment you can also benefit from the following:

  • A personal Account Manager.
  • Copywriting of your advertisement.
  • Advertising on the 60 of the UK’s leading internet job boards.
  • Unlimited amends to your vacancy at any time.
