Direct Hire fees are incurred when you choose to hire a candidate via a recruiting agency direct to your own payroll. Professional positions are normally hired in this manner, as it is important to make this close commitment to your talented new employee.
Direct Hire fees are generally factored as a percentage of the new hire’s annual salary an/or some other calculation. Some agencies may allow for a flat fee based on position, volume of hiring, or your business relationship with them.
Under such agreements, this fee is normally the sole, exclusive compensation to a recruiter or agency for their time, value and costs in locating, screening, background checking and otherwise presenting the candidate to you.
