It's The Headhunter Fee, Stupid!

Employers seldom complain about the services of headhunters, it’s the headhunters’ fee that has become their pain point.

A few months ago I was a presenting at a seminar to about 35 business owners and HR professionals.  The topic of the presentation was “How to Recruit like a Headhunter” and during the presentation I made the statement “if you are not using headhunters as your primary recruitment weapon, then you are not hiring the best talent in-the-market”…

Trouble Collecting My Fee

My client hired someone after 5 months without telling me according to my contract they owe me the whole fee. The applicant left the job 3 months later because the job was misrepresented. I lowered my fee to 10% of the annual fee to make the client someone happy and now they have told me they only want to pay me 10% of the applicants earnings.This is absurd. Do you have any suggestions. I may have to take legal action. This is not a good client to mine it is first placement I made with…

"But for My Efforts" Topic

In the popular thread from yesterday regarding candidate ownership Barbara Goldman brought up an important topic.  "But for My Efforts" has always been what us old school recruiters have used as the standard by which we feel our fee is earned.  It's always been that way for me.



Over the years though, many agencies have been drafting agreements with their clients that state specific terms of "ownership" for candidates introduced.  Usually these are 1 year or 6…

More cool tips on dealing with clients who want a fee discount

Last week I blogged about how you need to move the focus away from dollars and percentages when clients negotiate fees, and on to your value and your differentiators.





One of the comments on my blog from Matthew Lancey raised the point that sometimes clients keep pushing, and they say something like “but your competitors charge…

Client wants a discount? Don’t talk dollars, talk value

It’s a fact of recruiting life that clients will push you to negotiate your fees. And with so many recruiters quick to drop fee percentages to secure briefs, that can be a hard discussion to deal

with.



The starting point for successful fee negotiations is, strangely enough, to get the conversation off the fee percentage, and on to the question of what it is your fee is actually for.



And of course, bundled up in that conversation, is your…

The Hub - Focus

Okay, Okay, I know that I have not posted in the last couple of weeks. In my experience, blogging is something that you need to get into the habit of doing and once you do it regularly, you will enjoy it. If you don't do it regularly, then you find it hard to start again!

I have experienced a couple of similar scenario's recently.

1) Walking

Last winter, when I started working at a regular office again, within 2 miles from home, I was… Continue

Winning Business

The Hub It is clear that the current recruitment market is a tough place to be at the moment. Over the last 10 years, the £26bn UK industry has been saturated by small entrepreneurial businesses looking for a slice of the action. The vast majority of the smaller agencies owners, by which I mean a business with less than 15 employees, would have started life with a larger agency where they… Continue

Why should I pay a fee with all those ad responses?

We hear a lot about the high availability of talent. Is that really true? While you probably know someone who happened to be in the wrong industry and they got caught in massive downsizing, they are the exception. The government reported that the unemployment rate among college educated workers over the age of 25 in only 4.3%, or we are practically at full employment.



Former GE CEO Jack Welch said that an organization has:

• A players – top 20% who can be 8 times more… Continue

Combating Fee Reduction Requests in Life Science / Healthcare

“We are only working with agencies who are agreeable to our new reduced fee requirements. I am sure that you can appreciate it, with the economy and all.” “Actually we have so many resumes right now, unless you are willing to reduce your fee, we just can’t justify working with you.” Does this sound familiar? If so, listen with a discerning ear. Lessons of 2001 indicate that often this stance is a façade. There are other vertical’s where this is not true but in the life sciences and healthcare… Continue

Contingency placement: The recruiters craps shoot

We all understand gambling (i.e. the house wins) and its high risks and long shot rewards, but what many people don’t understand is that most recruiters do it everyday and lose.



Contingency search is the bread and butter of our industry allowing companies to view prospective candidates and only incur a fee if they hire the candidate and on the surface it looks like a win-win. However, with the state of the economy many companies are unintentionally using this search model against… Continue
