    Every year UK businesses spend in excess of £32 billion on funding recruitment and other associated costs. This is one of the most significant outlays a business can have and often, these costs can fall at the least appropriate times.

    Recruitment - more than just a salary

    It’s easy to forget that the cost of recruiting a new employee extends far beyond just a salary. Research conducted in 2018 suggested that on top of an average UK salary of £27,600, recruitment fees could, dependant on role, be as much as £5,000 or 20-30% of the average salary

    However, there are several additional costs to consider, from National Insurance contributions and training costs to investment in new or replacement IT and office equipment. These elements combined can result in an estimated total cost of around £50,000 to recruit one new head.

    Whilst recruitment is vital for growth and productivity, it can cause issues for smaller and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in covering these costs, and this is where recruitment funding can assist.
