We, in the UK, spend an average of 746 minutes a week online on non-work related surfing. That’s a staggering 12 hours plus per person per week.
Businesses are now moving their marketing methods online for exactly this reason- their customers are online. Traditional marketing methods are becoming less effective – the smart money is being spent on social media and online technologies.
The very same applies to recruitment.
Research has shown 91% of job seekers consider the job boards their single most useful resource when looking for work. This means that applicants for your next vacancy are online right now waiting to apply.
If you fail to advertise your next vacancy online, you could miss your next top employee.
Charges for a traditional recruitment agency begin at 10%+ of the candidate’s yearly wage, so for a junior administrator on £15,000 per year you can expect to pay upwards of £1,500. A lot of money? Not if you consider the cost of hiring a more senior employee on £30,000 per year. If your agency charges you a more typical 20%, this would cost you a shocking £6,000.
In fact, according to the REC, the average cost of filling a vacancy here in the UK is £3,950.
Massive numbers right? Sounds like online flat fee recruitment is for you.
