You are probably reading this because you need to recruit permanent IT staff. As you know, using a recruitment agency costs money, and there is associated financial risk.
Or is there?
With Blues Point you might pay a bit more but your investment is safer. We only take on projects where we know we will deliver. Therefore, we only accept realistic assignments where there is mutual commitment to the process. Therefore, by engaging us, you are automatically much more likely to find the right person for the job!
Going for the cheapest recruitment option is a false economy; you might save money in the short term by using an agency with a lower headline fee, but there are hidden costs that can have a real impact, specifically:
- The time you need to spend interviewing candidates who haven’t been properly vetted
- The cost of setting up and administering technical tests
- The potentially very high cost to your business (in both time AND money) of recruiting the wrong person and having to start again in a few months’ time.
Do you know the true cost of making a bad hire? Here's an article that deals with that.
We offer a free replacement or money-back guarantee of up to 6 months. Contact us for specifics.
Terms and conditions apply, of course, but the bottom line is that we want to make sure that the right person gets the job – and stays with you for the long term.
