A Budget Recruiting Case Study: Multiple Hires

A leading market research supplier sought to fill a Senior Project Director position on an accelerated timetable. While the firm typically did not engage recruiters, they reached out to Reeve & Associates based upon their industry reputation and past positive experiences.

While discussing the position, Phil Reeve shared the cost, speed and flexibility benefits associated with a new service named Budget Recruiting.

Given the Budget Recruiting process is identical to a Contingency engagement and it quickly delivers quality candidates at a fraction of the typical fee, the supplier trusted Phil and signed on.

"We couldn’t be happier, and
we definitely plan to use
Budget Recruiting in the future."

Within four business days, Reeve & Associates targeted and contacted 116 highly qualified professionals. During the next two weeks, four candidates were presented, interviews were conducted and an extended offer was accepted.

Despite expecting a two-month process, an offer was accepted in just one month resulting in a $3,750 staffing fee compared to $18,400 under a typical 20% contingency model.  "I was initially concerned the process might be elongated, but Reeve & Associates delivered even faster than they promised," said the company’s Chief Financial Officer.

The Budget Recruiting engagement was so successful the supplier even hired a second, more senior research professional—paying a fee of only $4,750 compared to $24,000 under a contingency-based approach for a $120,000 position.
