  • Logistics

How does interim recruitment work?

We work closely with you to fully understand the role, your business and the objective of the interim appointment – what you want to achieve. Once we have a full brief, we will match / source suitable candidates & present you with a shortlist – ideally 3 candidates.

Rates – we can process our pay structure based on either a day or hourly rate. We agree a rate with both the client & candidate, with the difference being our margin. We are totally transparent with regards to our rates, and share these openly with our clients so you know exactly what the candidate is being paid.

Insurance – most of our senior appointments have established limited companies, so would have their own professional indemnity cover. Should an interim candidate not have sufficient insurance, we would ask you to confirm that they are covered by your company insurance or obtain a quotation from our specialist broker.

Expenses – These are charged as incurred and go direct to the candidate with no margin added – of course you are free to reimburse directly.

Short & Long Term Contracts / Temps

As part of our commitment to our clients we have identified the need for some of our customers to engage candidates on a temporary basis to cover busy periods, holiday / sickness cover, or to assist in short term projects, realizing that most of these type of enquiries are urgent and that you will need someone to start almost immediately. We can run the payroll on your behalf / utilise an umbrella company or you can engage the candidate directly onto your payroll. Our temporary rates are available on request.
