We hear this all the time.
“I can get that person cheaper from another agency”
When looking at recruitment agencies to outsource your recruitment needs what one should you go for?
Cheap Recruitment VS Expensive Recruitment?
The choices are endless due to the amount of agencies out there.
There are some that are cheaper than others and some that are more expensive, however the more expensive ones aren’t an instant cast off.
This blog post will outline why some recruitment agencies are dearer than others.
Why Are Some Recruitment Agencies More Expensive?
If a recruitment agency is dearer than others its always best finding out why that is?
There are two main aspects as to why some recruitment agencies are dearer than others
Are they taking a huge mark up or what is the reason?
#1 Quality of candidates
A big reason why it may be is that they are paying the employees better, some agencies pay guys better so that they can keep them on their books.
Quality workmen aren’t always easy to find and if you can guarantee that the guys will turn up on time, do a job at 110% and get commended on the job then this comes with a slightly higher price.
The extra money spent can guarantee a top quality job and saves any problems that may arise if the job isn’t done properly.
#2 Relationship with agency/candidate
If you have a good relationship with a recruitment agency you may pay a higher rate so that you get their top guys when they come available.
If your paying a higher rate they wont just give you any one that’s available, they will find the best candidates they have and will get them to work with you.
Mainly by paying the extra money you are making sure you get good quality workers that you can almost leave to do the job and you know for a fact they will come in and do everything to the book and to a high quality.
It’s the same with anything though, you can pay for a cheaper alternative like a basic range at the supermarket however you will normally buy the branded one.
This is due to the quality difference and also the relationship with the brand you have built up already and what you expect from them.
