Our Pricing Strategy
A Longer Term Partnership
At Firestarter, we want to change conventional recruitment and development thinking from transactional to continuum focused. To us, it’s not just about filling gaps in a ‘recruit and forget’ style – we’re committed to looking at longer term strategies, linking people strategies to ongoing business strategies.
We work in partnership with our clients to analyse their people strategies and organisational structures to really understand how the development of key individuals and hiring of specific candidate types can drive super-charged delivery of business goals.
Talk to us to find out more about a new type of recruitment partnership that will help your business go from strength to strength.
Sharing Risk and Reward with a New Charging Structure
At Firestarter, we believe that sharing the risk and reward makes it easier for employers to make the right recruitment decisions. Therefore, not only will we help you find and keep the best people, but we will also structure a payment plan over three months that spreads the cost.
To give extra peace of mind we will replace people free of charge if they don’t work out within the first 3 months. Our goal is to work with you as ‘partners’, focusing on developing your business and employees as you grow.
So if you find traditional recruitment fees hard to swallow, talk to us for a different way of doing business.
As a guide, our charging structure works in the following way for the types of roles we recruit for:
|Role||Typical Range (basic salaries)||Standard Firestarter People Solutions Fees||Discounted Rates
(for existing Firestarter Business Solutions clients)
|Business Leader||£50k +||20%||12%|
|General Manager||£30 - £50k||20%||12%|
|Sales/Marketing Manager||£30 - £50k||20%||12%|
|Operational Manager||£25 - £40k||20%||12%|
|Senior Sales Person||£35 - £50k||17.5%||12%|
|Sales Executive||£18 - £25k||17.5%||12%|
|Business Analyst||£22 - £40k||15%||12%|
|Administrator||£18 – £22k||15%||12%|
So, for example if we recruit a sales manager with a basic salary of £40,000 p/a, instead of paying a one-off fee of £8,000 as per the standard agency recruitment model, we would charge £2,666.66 per month over a three month period, helping you to spread the recruitment cost and reduce your risk.
|Interim Manager||£5,000 per month|
|Subcontracted Sales People||£50 per hour|
|Non-Executive Directors||£4,000 per annum|
|Project Management||£400 per day|
|Operational Team Members||£250 per day|
|Creative Marketing Services||£50 per hour|
|Telephone Team Members||£25 per hour|
