The Requirement: The company required a sales and admin assistant for their busy base in Sheffield.
The Solution: We took a brief of the position that needed filling and discussed the various options with the MD, looking at the turnaround times and levels of involvement required from us against their in house abilities. It was decided that they should use the ad hoc internal recruitment method and we were tasked with advertising for the role, shortlisting and referencing.
The Gain: The usual cost by a standard recruitment agency to fill this position would have been £2,560, but, as only parts of the recruitment process were required, we were able to fill this position based on the time taken to do our tasks and the total invoice from us was £450. This gave the company a great saving on just this one position of £2,110.
- Standard recruitment agency rate: £2,560
- Our ad hoc rate: £450
- Their saving: £2,110
