Flat Fee Explained
Same Service Lower Cost
Our customers save an average 90% by using our services instead of that of a traditional recruitment consultancy.
There is little, if any, difference between the recruitment services we provide and that of a traditional recruitment consultancy. Our low cost service is based upon traditional recruitment consultancy values including industry knowledge, market advice, salary advice, and transparency so that employers know upfront exactly what they will be paying for the recruitment service.
Each customer is given one point of contact to manage their vacancy, and our experience and professionalism helps guide customers through the process from taking from the job description to forwarding relevant candidates, ensuring a smooth journey all the way through the recruitment process.
Priced at £495, our standard service is the most popular option for customers, and is successful in 90%+ of recruitment campaigns, enabling customers to recruit one or more employees for a one-off low fee.
We have a combined experience of 25+ years, serving the recruitment needs of the Food Industry, making us ideally placed to assist food businesses across a wide-range of job disciplines.
We charge much lower fees. For a £35k pa vacancy you would save £4,755 using our recruitment service (savings based on an average recruitment commission of 15%).
We are specialists. We only recruit for the Food Industry, so have in depth industry knowledge and substantial experience of assisting Food Industry clients with recruitment matters.
We have a huge online presence (The largest in the UK!) and will ensure that your vacancy is available to the widest possible audience of candidates across, regional, national, general, and specialist (food industry) jobs boards.
We offer transparency by charging our flat fee ‘upfront’ with nothing further to pay so that customers know exactly what they are paying at the outset. Traditional recruitment consultancies will charge a much larger fee based on a percentage of the employee salary.
We leave contact details on CV’s so that employers have direct access to candidates which speeds up the process of arranging interviews and making job offers.
We access our internal database of 20,000+ food professionals and external CV databases holding 12 million + CV’s. Traditional recruitment consultancies may only access their in-house database, perhaps containing the CV’s of just a few thousand candidates.
Our service combines all the key elements of recruitment consultancy (industry knowledge, candidate reach) combined with the power of Internet, all for a much, much lower fee.
