Why should I consider using a recruitment agency?

How much do you charge for your services?
Our charge is dependent on what type of employment you are recruiting for. If it is a permanent role then we usually charge a percentage of the annual salary that is offered.
For temporary (temp/contract/fixed term/interim) roles we would charge a percentage of the hourly/daily rate. So to simplify matters for the client, we can payroll the candidates and then we apply a fee to cover their pension, holiday, AWR, sick pay etc.
