We’re here to breathe some much needed new life into the stale and costly ways of recruitment. Here’s how we do it. We offer a flat placement fee instead of forcing you to pay a whopping percentage of each employee’s salary. We offer a transparent and fair capped hourly fee on all freelancers/temps we place with you.

And because we are a little different, we have developed the Sign Up Fee – our commitment to working together with you, our client.

Sign Up Fee

A totally different approach to recruitment that works for both of us, a fair and value added concept for your business. You simply pay Talent for our services (the hours we work) and we believe you get more for your money as we are both committed to the process of recruiting the right person for your role.

Because Talent offers such a low placement fee, the sign up fee helps us get to the stage of successful recruitment.

How it works

  • Talent will understand your job brief role and develop the job description.
  • Talent will create an effective advertising plan, which includes writing and posting the job advertising for you.
  • Talent will review applicants daily representing your brand in an ethical and professional manner.
  • Talent will present a shortlist of potential talent for you to interview, we obtain feedback from both parties;
  • Complete reference checks for the final candidates using our online reference check document;
  • Assist in the negotiation of the salary package, review contracts, start date and induction.

Flat Placement Fee

Finding the right people is one thing. Having to pay through the nose for it is another. Instead, we’ve introduced a flat fee * on any employee we recruit on your behalf for permanent, contract and temp to perm roles. So you only pay us for the work we do, not a percentage of whatever the employee happens to earn. Sounds good, yes.

How it works

  • Talent will send the scope document that includes the advertising and marketing plan and advertising costs. NOTE: advertising rates are not included in the fee and are quoted for every job brief.
  • Take the permanent job brief using the detailed talent job description to find out what you really want!
