What are the models of cooperation with recruitment agencies?

The process of cooperation with Next Technology Professionals

The 3 most frequently chosen models of cooperation

Success Fee model

The Success fee model does not require any prepayment. It involves paying the full amount to the agency only after the recruitment process is completed. The invoice is usually issued when the candidate signs the contract or starts the first day of work.

Main features of the success fee model

The main features of this model are:

  • No upfront fees, 
  • Payment for results, 
  • Motivation for being effective. We issue an invoice only when the candidate arrives at the company.

Mixed model (Semi-retainer)

The mixed model usually requires an advancement of around 10-40% of the project value. The remaining amount is paid by the client upon completion of the project.

Retainer model

This model often involves dividing the advance into 3 or 4 installments. The agency’s payment is paid only after completing the following stages, such as: starting the recruitment process, presenting candidates and completing the process.

Why do customers mostly choose the Success Fee model?

The Success fee model is considered the most popular because it benefits both sides, the agency and the client.

Why do customers mostly choose the Success Fee model?

Thanks to Success Fee, the financial risk incurred by the employer is minimized, because the full fee is paid only after the contract is closed, and the recruitment agency is highly motivated to provide the highest quality of service. This model is primarily based on trust and a guarantee of completing the order, which contributes to successful cooperation.

You do not pay us anything if we do not find the employee you are looking for.

What are the costs of cooperation with a recruitment agency?

Typically, standard costs start from 12% of the candidate’s first annual salary. However, in the case of high-level or difficult-to-fill positions, it may reach up to 30%.
