No Matter What

A Fixed Price for the Best Candidate

Significant Savings for
Right-Fit Candidates

With flat-fee or fixed-fee pricing, your cost-per-hire gets lower every time we’re successful (and we’re successful a lot!) Once you pay, your bill stays the same, making the accounts payable happy, and you…very savvy.

The flat-fee model is helpful when you have more than one job order, and/or need to fill a lot of roles at one time. This keeps your costs low and consolidates your search.

If you’re not hiring for a business-critical role and have some time to fill the vacancy, flat fees can be very attractive.

Flat-Fee Recruitment Decoded

Flat-fee recruitment can seem like a no-brainer. After, all it’s a lower cost than other pricing models, so why would you choose anything else?

What it Implies

Flat-fee recruiting is all about relationships. It makes the most sense to explore this option with a partner you trust, so you can assess their motivation.

The Pros

Flat fees are typically lower than fees based upon a percentage of a candidate’s salary during their first year of employment with the client. Yay savings!

The Cons

Companies may worry they’re not getting the best candidates when recruiters accept a flat fee. At Vaia, you know you’re getting the best no matter what.
