Does your answer change if you are given an “anchor” – think of that when you are giving a price
    • 5. Recruitment is a people business• Here is €20 you can keep it under one condition, you have to share some of it with a friend, it is up to you how much, your friend has no say. If your friend rejects your offer you both get nothing, if he accepts you both keep your share.• How much will you offer your friend
    • 6. Selling Before we can negotiate we need to understand a little about selling and what the other person is doing
    • 7. Many people don’t like the word selling If do not believe in what you are selling – you will never be able to negotiate well
    • 8. Selling Recruitment ConsultancyA good recruiter can give:AdviceKnowledgePerspective
    • 9. Selling Now sell me your company and why a corporate who would want you to recruit for them
    • 10. Recruitment “features”Specialist We have highly skilled We are experts in recruiters LinkedinInnovative We deliver We are professional,We run events end to end recruiters We won an NRF agency We have great clientsThe biggest in the world award We have an outsourcingThe best recruitment businessbrand We have 80% repeat business We work across allWe have a great disciplinesdatabase We are niche SO WHAT !!!
    • 11. Buying a phone Imagine they sold the features of the company when you wanted a phone– you would walk out – sell the benefits
    • 12. Selling Recruiter benefits• We can find out the best candidates, those hard to find candidates, those passive candidates etc• Speed: We find the candidates quicker than any other source• We are great value for money• We save you time and money• We are good/ professional to deal with
    • 13. Role play - open job• You work for ABC Recruitment. I am a client and have called in regarding a role that I currently have on, the role is a sales manager, I am open to giving you as much info you need, can you ask me the questions that you want to ask. You have just picked up the phone “In or out” You don’t have a strategy if you cannot say no to a client
    • 14. Sales is emotive...The indifference of their current supplier.
    • 15. Think about what you can negotiate on – its not allWhat to negotiate on? about priceWrite down 5 reasons that you would reduce your rates?Reduced rate Increased RateExclusivity •Job already openMultiple roles •Advertised directly or alreadyWorking with other parts of your using other agenciesbusiness •Rebate period wantedAgreed timeframes and •Invoicing terms wantedinterview slots •Scarcity of the skill-setPart payment upfront •No client visitClient visit •No Job specNo rebate •No answers to questions on jobCharity client spec
    • 16. Your first reaction to a statement should be toClient says ask more questions – not react to the statement• Everyone else is at 10% why are you not• Market rate for this role is… Do you know how difficult this skill-set is• We have no money, can you just send us 1/2 cvs for a flat fee• Let me explain what we have to do for any role we fill• We have never paid more than 12%• You pay nothing until you hire, if our candidates are twice as good you wont mind paying 50% more• Its either 10% or we cannot do business with you• No problem come back to me when you need cvs, I can give you the name of a recruiter who will do it at 1%• All you do is send me a cv, you must be joking if you think that is worth 10,000• If the person we send you makes you 1 million in sales over 5 years is 10,000 still high?Can you answer these questions?
    • 17. Using Data• I have 5 clients all paying 20% fees and I still cannot find the cvs that they want, why would I go lower for you• There is only about 20 people in the marketplace fot the skills you want – what is attractive about your company• You can get a recruitment service for 650 euro (1%) if it is the cheapest price that you are looking for• MESSAGE: its not what the client wants to pay it is what the market rate is
