4. Unlimited Accountant Recruitment

From just £60 per month – online recruitment service for the unlimited recruitment of staff. From accounts assistants and administrative staff through to client managers, senior auditors and accountants. This option requires you to sign up with us for a 3 or 5 year term. Details can be found at www.tenpercentunlimited.co.uk

Options 1,2 and 3 are success fees; you only pay us if we are successful in finding you a suitable member of staff and you employ them.

Option 2 is a tailored service to fit your requirements. We can pre-interview candidates, we can run an assessment exercise, commission your advertising, handle all inquiries, prepare and sift through application forms and negotiate any offers.

We are not aware of any other recruitment agencies in the UK offering 12 month rebate periods or unlimited recruitment packages.
