Budget Recruiting: saving you time and money

Budget Recruiting Case Study

Research Manager


After months of searching without success, a medium-sized research supplier was eager to find a qualified Research Manager. Rather than accept the delays often associated with a traditional contingency search, the supplier signed on to the Budget Recruiting service, paying only $3,750.

"Budget Recruiting did the impossible. It filled an important job we were unable to staff for months—and it saved us money."

— Hiring Manager

Upon commencing the search, Reeve & Associates authored the job description and distributed it to its own large, proprietary database of qualified research professionals—and also posted the job description on several trusted sites. Then multiple searches were conducted to locate qualified, passive (currently employed) candidates.

During the first two weeks, 295 qualified candidates were identified. Of those, ten were presented to the client resulting in five phone interviews and one video interview. During the third week, two in-person interviews were conducted, and an offer was issued before the end of the month.

Given an initial salary range of $65,000 to $75,000, the client was able to increase the offer to $85,000 without paying a larger recruiting fee. This ultimately resulted in a 4.4% recruiting fee compared to the standard 25%.

While exceptionally successful, this result was atypical as most placements require two months of recruiting. However, the client was eager to hire and they adjusted their work and interviewing schedules accordingly.

Not only did they quickly fill the role with a qualified market research professional, they saved a boatload of time and money.
