Valentine's day may have been and gone, but at Flat Fee Recruiter, we have a really great incentive for everyone sharing the love...
All you have to do is put us in touch with someone who you think would benefit from our unique fixed fee recruitment service, and let us do the rest. In return, if they buy, you save £100 off your next order!
It is that simple.
But hurry, your friend needs to buy a standard advert credit, before the 18th of April 2019.
If you need a quick way to explain the service, why not send them to this page on our website: https://flatfeerecruiter.co.uk/how-it-works and there are no limits on the number of friends you refer. Every order will be thanked with a £100 credit discount (so you could actually recruit for free!)
Thanks so much,
The Flat Fee Recruiter team
P.S. If you have already purchased credits from us, then you can choose extra job boards or recruitment services to the value of £100 for every new customer you pass our way.
We love memes at Flat Fee Recruiter, after all, a picture says a thousand words and sometimes we can't resist making them up to show the lighter side of a point.
Here are some of the favourites, from the team, over the last few months...

You are not alone if think that the festive season is best left to planning recruitment, rather than actively hiring. But most recruiters will tell you that this is exactly why you should be actively hiring and to use this potential slow down to your advantage.
So, why should you advertise your jobs in December?
Below are 5 reasons why you should be advertising your jobs in December, to make sure you get ahead of your competition and make the most of your recruitment strategy over the forthcoming weeks.
1. Stand out in a crowded market
Because lots of other businesses think that this time of year is not worth advertising, there is a reduction in the number of adverts posted (usually about 25%-30%), but the number of search results for Jobs remains high. Think about it - those companies who do advertise jobs, have a greater opportunity to get their adverts seen by more people. As the competition for talent reduces, if you have a great job advert with the right keywords and content, you can be much more effective with your targeting and reach.
2. Target and engage with passive job seekers
As the Christmas frivolities start, job seekers have a little bit more time on their hands. Many are starting to think about new year / new career and the previously passive candidates will be having a look on the internet to weigh up their options. The figures show that search competition for jobs is still high in December. Candidates will also have more time to attend interviews or even take some time out for trial work days. You could even get them involved in your Christmas culture and show your organisation on a high. Engage, Engage, Engage!
3. Make your budget go further
Many recruitment advertising companies will offer great deals in December as it is notoriously a slow and short month, but targets remain static. If you have some budget to use up before the end of the year, why not make it go further and negotiate yourself some great deals. If you are doing PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising with Flat Fee Recruiter on sites like Indeed or Facebook, you may also find that competition for the keyword terms is cheaper too. Win-Win!
4. Get ahead on next year
The overall hiring process may take longer than you think and if you have vacancies to fill for January, starting now could ensure that you have quality staff members starting at the beginning of the next quarter rather than mid-way through – helping you reduce the pressure on your team in the new year.
5. Use your time wisely and get organised
As the slowdown to Christmas comes upon many businesses, now is a great time to do all those jobs you have been putting off for a while. Good hiring practices would include sourcing for candidates, networking with talent, taking time out to review your talent pools, sourcing new advertising channels and spending a few extra minutes qualifying good candidates who respond to your adverts. If you have a company like Flat Fee Recruiter who can do this for you, even better!
Recruitment is all about the right time - right place. If you know you have positions to fill next year, our advice is not to wait till January, but get cracking with your job advertisements now. Make sure that you stand head and shoulders above your competition, attract the best talent and use time wisely.
Let's not forget to take advantage of the Flat Fee Recruiter special Christmas offer and get an extra month's recruitment advertising for FREE!

Just post your job, use code XMAS18 and find those candidates ASAP!
“We used to spend lots of money in the local evening post and with recruitment agencies, but this was very expensive and for not much reward. Then we met Flat Fee Recruiter who has proved that online recruitment advertising can work”
The team at Age Cymru Swansea Bay (Age UK) have worked with Flat Fee Recruiter since March 2016 and have provided a recruitment advertising service for a wide range of roles including Administration, Compliance, Information Brokers, Benefits Officers and Co-ordinators both part time and full time.
With such a wide range of roles to manage, the previous recruitment strategy was to use the local press and recruitment agencies. However, with continuing cuts from the government and budgets really struggling, relying on these expensive methods fill all their roles was proving to be financially stretching.
Since helping Age Cymru to attract talent from the internet to most of their vacancies, they have seen a significant reduction in recruitment costs. With the extra support that Flat Fee Recruiter also provides such drafting web friendly adverts and fitting into their existing recruitment processes, the administrative burden has not increased for them either.
The Chief Executive Officer is really pleased that online recruitment is proving to be working for them!
