What is Flat Fee Recruitment? Flat Fee Recruitment may also be called; Fixed Fee Recruitment or Flat Rate Recruitment.  The employer will pay a fixed rate for online recruitment advertising services.
There are many online recruitment suppliers who offer a range of services for a flat rate. However, Flat Fee Recruiter coined the term in 2012, with a specific type of recruitment service in mind.  You can now find many online Flat Fee Recruitment providers offering services based on our concept. In a nutshell, Flat Fee Recruitment is all about getting the widest coverage or advertising reach for a job advert and puts the employer in control of their hiring process and decisions. The Flat Fee Recruitment provider buys high volumes of space on a variety of job boards, then bundles these job boards together and provides these as a combined package to the employer.  The employer can then choose which candidates they want to progress with. The similarities between Flat Fee Recruitment providers stop here though...
