Contingency recruitment explained
The hiring demands of businesses differ dependant upon many variables, generally speaking, company size and budget often play a significant role when deciding on the preferred recruitment model to suit your needs.

If we consider unpredictable hiring demands, a contingency recruitment solution could be the most suited option and one your company is interested in exploring further. In it's most simple form, recruiters who engage with you on a contingency basis present candidates who are qualified to fulfil an open role within your organisation.

If a successful match is made and in turn the candidate begins employment with your organisation, this will result in a placement fee. The fee paid can vary on seniority of role and the time demands of fulfilling the brief, however, this fee is typically calculated as a percentage of the new hire's first year salary. Industry averages vary but you can expect to pay anything in the region of 12-18% for less qualified roles or 15-30% for more senior and skilled hires.

When to engage in contingency recruitment
Contingency recuitment is a popular choice with growing businesses as it requires a low up front investment, seeing as it is in essence a paid on results service. In addition to this, there is relatively little client-side time investment required due to the recruiter engaging on the sourcing of the role.
