New Financial Year: Use Low Cost Recruitment Services To Reduce Your Recruitment Budget
So 5th April has come and gone, and on 6th April you had a clean, fresh slate to work from. Or close to it anyway. You made it. And now you can take a step back and think about your new budget and how you can make the most of it. What are you going to do with your new found ‘wealth’? How are you going to make it go further in the year to come?
Depending on what it is you do as a company, there are a variety of different ways to spend your budget – and a variety of different ways to go well over budget without meaning to as well. That is one of the dangers of business, and even those with the best of intentions can come unstuck if they don’t plan properly.
Staffing is something that many companies want to organise at this time of the year. Now that all the budgets have been delved into and the figures worked out, you can see exactly how much you have to spend on new employees – not just their salaries, but the cost of recruiting them in the first place. A whopping – and shocking 4.13 billion is spent on recruitment each year, with the average employee costing £30,000 just to hire.
But don’t let that put you off. If you need new staff, now is the time to do it. The trick to not over spending is to not just stick with your usual recruitment agency to find your fresh employees – you don’t want to spend your entire budget all at once. Instead, why not try going online and finding a low cost recruitment provider that will give you excellent services, the right employees, and save you a load of money on your recruitment budget?
How much do you usually spend on recruitment a year using traditional agencies? Whatever it is, it’s too much. Far too much. And that’s the same whether it’s tens of thousands or a few hundred. If you’re not getting the right level of service and you’re still paying out, it’s a waste. If you’ve already come to this conclusion and you’ve tried going direct, you’ll probably have realised that this doesn’t come in much cheaper when all is added up – advertising is an expensive business whether you’re looking for sales or new recruits.
But there is another option. Low cost recruitment providers are a great way to keep within your shiny new budget limits. You can find fixed fee, low cost recruitment services that are still great quality and offer you everything a traditional recruitment agency would but for a fraction of the price.
