How much does a recruiter cost?

Recruitment fees range from as little as 10% to as much as 35%. The difference in the scale of fees can be best understood by deciding what type of service do you want? If it’s a database search of available talent and the supply of CVs from a recruiter one off fees are typically 15-20% with discount for volume work. If you want a professional search service from a recruiter, as you recognise that the people you are seeking to hire are instrumental to your future success, then fees will be 25% - 35%, with discount for volume work.
