Firstly a recruitment consultant will be allocated to you for the recruitment of your position. They will call you for an initial consultation to go over the position and to design an effective advertising campaign targeting the right people. This advertising campaign will include listings on SEEK, Indeed, Social Media and advertising through our existing databases and networks. Your recruitment consultant is there from the start to finish and will keep you informed at all stages of the recruitment process.
cv2me vet all applicant CV’s against your requirements. Only those that meet your specifications will be submitted to your account portal for your team to view and assess. We manage all correspondence with candidates, both those that are successful in progressing to next stage and those that have been unsuccessful in their application.
With a click of the button in your account portal, you can choose which candidates you would like cv2me to video interview. We organise and conduct the video interviews with shortlisted candidates. Your consultant will conduct a live interview with questions that you provide (or we can create them). These interviews are not only recorded for you to review at your convenience, but so you can see all reactions and responses in real time.
CV2me facilitate any paperwork you may have for the candidates, organise time for client-candidate interviews and we inform all candidates of your decisions at all stages. All our packages have reference checks included.
We can also provide police checks, DISC profiling and psychometric testing for small additional fees. cv2me can tailor recruitment packages to suit client specifications and requirements. For these additional services we only pass on the fee the 3rd party charges us.
We will get at least 3 candidates who apply who meet your minimum requirements or the recruitment service fee is free for your next listing.
Up to a 90 day guarantee depending on your service package. If the person you hire leaves, we will recruit for that position again free (less the cost of advertising).
Frequently Asked Questions
How can you be so cheap compared to most recruitment agencies who charge thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars each time they do recruitment for you?
You should be asking those agencies why they charge so much! It is not that we are cheap, too long now recruitment agencies have been going of pricing models from many years back when recruitment was extremely expensive and time consuming to conduct on behalf of clients.
Due to advances, mainly in technology, the costs involved in recruitment have come down significantly (both time and money expenditure).
We are making recruitment affordable!
We are full service recruitment. When you list your position with us one of our recruitment consultants is assigned to the recruitment of your position from start to end.
I have used low fee recruitment agencies before claiming they are the cheapest, advertising low fees. Then after agreeing to use them all these other fees start appearing ending up costing us thousands of dollars. Will this happen if we use you?
That’s a story we have heard on many occasions, companies advertising their recruitment fees around $1000 but then they charge extra for things such as interviewing, reference checking and even to use their recruitment software!
Basically, all they do for the fee is list your position and send you some CV’s of applicants!
No our service fee is set, we don’t have hidden extras. What is listed in our recruitment package is what you will get. The only additional fees would be for:
- additional video interviews or reference checks outside the number we include in our packages (rarely does a client need more, unless hiring for more than 1 person for the same role).
- 3rd Party services such as police checks or aptitude/ profiling type tests (we only pass on our direct costs).
- Additional advertising if required outside of SEEK (we only pass on the direct cost).
So you can recruit for any industry or job type, why should we use you instead of a company that exclusively specialises in an industry?
Besides the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars you save, our recruitment team will deliver exceptional results.
Our recruiters specialise in recruitment, this involves identifying our client’s requirements and going of them, not what we think they may want. We don’t need to know how to prepare financial statements to recruit for an accountancy job. What we do is listen to our Accountant client and what criteria they say they require. We always do research before recruiting for any role.
If you choose to use a “specialist recruitment agency” ask the recruiter who will be doing the recruiting for you how many years industry specific experience they have in the role you need to hire for? You may be surprised, many have none!
Another point of difference is that our recruiters are dedicated to recruitment and not sales. We have separate people doing sales. Often the case with recruitment agencies is that their recruiters are hired to do both sales and recruitment. It ends up the recruiters spend their time trying to get new clients as their salaries are highly commission based.
I’ve heard of agencies that give candidates questions in advance and then give them a link to video record their responses in their own time (they call them video interviews). Is this how it works with you?
Absolutely not. Firstly, we only video interview candidates you choose to be video interviewed. They are conducted live with your recruiter. Like a face-face interview, the candidate books a date and time to be interviewed. We don’t prep the candidates in any way, it is up to them to be prepared. The pressure of the interview is the same as a face-face interview as the candidate can see their recruiter interviewing them, they are not talking to a blank screen. The best thing however is that straight after each interview we pass the live recording onto you to view and assess for yourself.
If you have more than one person involved in the hiring process it can also be shared with those people to view and then allows you as a team to discuss and decide.
I have a position which I need more than 1 person for. Will I be charged additional service fees per hire for that position?
No. You can hire up to 2 people on the same job listing and our service fee will remain the same. The only additional costs would be if you require more video interviews or reference checks. For more than 2 people for the same position please contact us for the pricing.
So besides your price, what makes you think you are better than other recruitment agencies out there?
Companies use recruitment agencies to save them time whilst find the best people for their positions. Our processes mean we don’t always have to be on the phone to you or emailing you asking questions or co-ordinating things. We have our own customised account portal for Employers which not only allows you to view CV’s, cover letters and questionnaires we upload from candidates we short list, it allows you to make your decisions with a simple click of a mouse. Your recruiter will get your decisions and act accordingly.
It also adds transparency as you know at what stage your recruiter is up to, so no hidden surprises
Of course, if at any time you need to contact your recruiter by phone or email they are there for you.
Our transparency in allowing Employers to view the interviews of candidates they are interested in also saves valuable time and make well informed decisions. We have heard time and time again of recruitment agencies sending candidates for face-face interviews with the employer only for them not fitting the description of the person they are wanting to hire, but still having to them conduct the whole interview out of courtesy.
You see the recordings of the people you decide for us to interview and then you decide who of these candidates you want to meet with face-face.
