Transparent Fees

In line with our transparent approach, we are happy to have our charges and some key points visible
to all.

Free Advice

  • Everything we do for our clients is with the aim of building a long-term relationship and not simply about a one-off placement. To ensure that is the case, our advice and consultancy side is always free.

No upfront fees

  • If we are engaged on a contingency basis, we only charge once the successful candidate has actually started.

Flat rate fees

  • We charge a flat rate of annualised remuneration for permanent recruitment and offer highly competitive charges for interim assignments. Our introductory rate doesn’t increase with salary levels and whilst most agencies will do this, we have never felt this to be a fair approach. You should always receive the same, high quality service regardless of the seniority of the role.

Free replacements

  • We offer a FREE replacement service for all permanent recruitment.
