Free for Employers
Finding a recruiter using Ahoy Employ's online platform is absolutely free.
You set the Placement Fee
When posting a vacancy, you set the placement fee within your budget, and above the minimum fee. We match you with recruiters who are eager to work within your means.
Flat Fee ($) or Commission (%)
Traditionally recruitment fees are calculated as a percentage of the candidate's annual package. To reduce cash flow risk as a growing business, you may choose to offer a flat fee so there's no surprises.
Why a Minimum Fee? We believe in fair business that is equitable for both employers and recruiters.The minimum fee allowed is the greater of $5,000 or 8% of the candidate's annual package.
When posting a vacancy, we require a $199 fully refundable deposit. If you don't hire anyone, we refund you.
Why do we require a deposit? At Ahoy Employ we’re about making recruitment honest. A deposit lets recruiter(s) know that you’re serious about hiring, so they put 100% of their effort into finding you the perfect candidate sooner.
When do I Pay?
When you pay depends on whether you have posted a vacancy and engaged a recruiter as Contingent or Retained.
Contingent search means you only pay the placement fee when the candidate is successfully hired and starts work.
Retained search means you pay 1/3 of the placement fee upfront (non-refundable). The next 1/3 becomes due when the candidate is hired. Final payment is due when the candidate commences work.
