Agency Fees – Comparison

How do we compare with other agencies? Read an article on fees charged by legal recruitment consultants in the UK here:

Most employment agencies will not publish their fee structure and are usually reluctant to release the information generally. We understand that the Venn Group charge 30% fees for locum assignments and we imagine a lot of the other larger sized companies are at a similar level. Randstad charge 25% for placements over £40,000 salary. Generally we think the larger agencies tend to be around 25% and upwards for all aspects of recruitment, with the smaller recruiters offering anything from 25% down to 20%. Whether or not a recruitment agency will be successful in finding staff is another matter entirely…

Why are you called Ten Percent?

Having read the above you may be wondering, quite rightly, why we are called Ten-Percent Legal Recruitment if we charge 18% fees generally. Good question! We are called Ten Percent because we donate 10% of our profits to charity every year. Further details can be found at www.ten-percent.co.uk/charitable-trust.
