Rcruitment without Agency Fees

Solicitor & Accountant Recruitment from £60

Ten Percent Unlimited is a unique monthly fee unlimited recruitment service, combining recruitment consultancy and job board vacancy posting for a low monthly fee.

“Ten-Percent’s scheme is a “must have” for an expanding firm, introducing a steady stream of high quality applicants at a fraction of the cost of traditional recruitment processes and as importantly, the cost is spread…. so frankly, it becomes a “no brainer” to use it.”

“I have recommended you. I said you were the agent to approach. Somebody has to say how valued you are by small firms.

“Could not be in better hands. Our experience of other recruitment companies has not been good and we can rely on you and your judgement. I know we are a small client but we are regulars.”

Recruitment is Expensive

It’s so frustrating. You want to recruit more staff; you have the work, you have the space, but in order to find new solicitors or accountants you either have to pay a recruitment agency, with no guarantees the candidate will hang around for long, or do it yourself and pay job boards for advertising.

Agency Fees are Astronomical

Click here for a survey of recruitment agency fees for accountants and click here for a survey of recruitment agency fees for solicitors. Rates for using a recruitment agency to source candidates range from 15% to 35%, usually depending on salary levels.

The problem with most recruitment agencies is that their fees are ‘front loaded’ – if a candidate leaves your firm after a period of time you have just paid a recruitment consultant a lot of money for nothing. Apart from a 3 month rebate period, which is standard across the industry, you will get nothing back.

£7,875 Fees to Recruit a £35,000 Accountant

For example (see our agency fees article), one agency charges 22.5% to source an Accountant on a salary of £35,000. This gives you a hefty one-off fee of £7,875 plus VAT for the introduction. If the candidate leaves within the first 10 weeks, you will get 1/10 rebate for every week not worked during this time. If the candidate leaves after the first 10 weeks, you will get nothing back.

Job Board Advertising – Time Consuming

There is of course a cheaper option – advertise on the job boards. For solicitor and accountant recruitment there is no shortage of online opportunities for advertising your vacancy; The Law Society Gazette, The Lawyer, Chancery Lane, Accountancy Age, Glassdoor, The Job Centre, Simply Law Jobs, Totallylegal, Indeed, Gumtree, Reed, Monster, CV Library, TotalJobs – the list goes on and on.

To advertise on these websites can cost from £150-400 per vacancy for a period of up to 6 weeks. There are no guarantees that you will get any suitable candidates in this time. Furthermore, it is perfectly possible for some vacancies that you will have 100s of unsuitable CVs to filter and deal with.

Time is Money

And this is the problem with job boards. Not only are they time restricted – you do not get to advertise until you fill the vacancy, they are also time consuming.

You are a business person. In a typical week you will be ensuring your business is running smoothly, managing your staff, developing new opportunities and dealing with clients. Have you really got time to sit down and draft job adverts, sift through applications, handle candidate queries (very often by phone), arrange interviews and send out rejection emails?

Advertising your vacancy on job boards and via other sources all costs a lot of money, time and effort without any guarantee of success. If a candidate leaves, you have to start again.

Finding quality staff at a low risk to the business is a nightmare for every SME employer.
