This of course, is always one of the first questions a client has when starting to consider hiring a CNC Machinist, and here at Influx Recruitment we receive this question hundreds and hundreds of times a year, likely within the first couple of minutes of any conversation.
Cost (along with many other factors) matters, and can certainly dictate what recruitment agency you are going to use in the long run.
So how much will it cost you?
The answer to this is that it depends on your requirements.
This article will outline the factors in which we at Influx Recruitment take into consideration when giving our clients the cost of hiring a CNC Machinist on a temporary contract.
Factors That Dictate How Much It Costs To Hire A CNC Machinist
What type of CNC Machinist are you looking for?
Are you looking for a CNC Machinist who can work with wood, Or is it a CNC Machinist who can work with wood, metals and plastics, or is it a CNC Machinist with a vast array of experience who can programme machinery and can do quality checks and supervisory quality checks on others.
CNC Machinists in certain areas cost a little bit more or less depending on their demographics and cost of living. For example, the cost of living in London is dearer therefore candidates expect and get more.
#3 Parking Charges
CNC Machinists working in busy areas such as central Edinburgh/Glasgow may request a higher salary in order to cover parking charges that they incur at parking lots.
CNC Machinists working in very rural places such as on farmland out with towns may request a higher salary to cover travel costs out to the rural areas.
But we understand that too, and because we understand the needs of our candidates, they will hopefully get this covered in their wage. We will always be upfront with any additional costs that are being requested in order for you to make a decision.
#4 Length Of Contract
CNC Machinists may ask for a higher hourly wage if the term time for work is only a week or few days. If its longer term they may consider a lower rate due to job security.
If you want to make sure that someone will be on the job, on time, raring to go, EVERYDAY and keen then you know they will then be WORTH the extra hourly rate.
If a CNC Machinist knows their work is of a high standard and is renowned for this they will command a higher rate than someone who may not be of the same calibre. If they come in, get stuck in to the job in hand and get through the work to a high standard quickly then they merit the higher rate.
Recruitment Agency CNC Machinists
We also understand that you may have had issues with agency CNC Machinists in the past, however we have always had great feedback on our candidates.
For example, we placed a CNC Machinist on a site in Fife and the client was happy so happy with the work they did they took them on permanently after 2 weeks due to their because of their excellent work and willingness to go the extra mile, put in the hours and have projects completed to a high standard and on time.
We knew the candidates were great, but again it all comes down to TRUST.
The Cost Of Hiring A CNC Machinist From A Recruitment Agency
So again, it totally depends on the above factors mentioned, however you can be looking at rates starting from £14.50/hour ranging to £18/hour based on our experience in the current climate.
Hire A CNC Machinist From Influx Recruitment
If you are looking for a CNC Machinist and not sure how much we will charge you, then why not get in contact with us? Our team of dedicated consultants will be happy to explain our pricing structure so you can see exactly what your requirements are and what you are paying for.
At Influx, we recommend using a system called temporary to permanent.
Some agencies will allow you to take on a permanent employee through the agency on what you could call a “trial basis” where you take on a temporary worker for 12 weeks and if you like the candidate then they transition to your core team for no extra cost.
However, not all agencies do this so it is not always free to make this transition and could cost smaller companies more than they would of had they just employed them on a permanent basis.
Here at Influx this is something we do use however, after the 12 week period you are welcome to take on the employee permanently, we actively encourage this as it gives the employee greater job security and is ultimately what we want to happen to all good workers.
