Why use a Veterinary Recruitment Agency?
Veterinary Recruitment firms may know the market well and often have access to a pool of current Job Seekers that they can tap into for rapid placement, which means that they can potentially help you to fill a role in days rather than weeks or months…just be prepared for their fees which can be up to 25% of the total salary and benefits package.
There are times when you don’t want the world to know that you are looking for a new veterinary professional for your team. It might be a new project, a pending termination or the practice owner stepping back from day-to-day operations. Whatever the reason, a Veterinary Recruitment agency can help ensure that the information remains confidential, even supplying Non-disclosure Agreements to candidates in exceptional cases…but there’s still that fee of up to 25% of the total salary and benefits package.
The veterinary world continues to become more and more specialised and you may find that there is a particular skill set that you need in Oncology or Sonography or Imaging or Advanced Surgical skills that you are finding a challenge to locate and engage with. A Veterinary Recruiter might have inside knowledge of all aspects of the veterinary services arena and knows where to look for this kind of talent…but that knowledge will require you to part with up to 25% of the total salary and benefits package.
Targeted Search & Negotiation
There are times when you just want that single person, but making a direct approach is complicated. Either too visible, or such an approach has the potential to inflate the expectations of the potential new team member. An experienced senior recruiter from a leading Veterinary Recruitment agency can help you plan the strategy as well as implement the tactics required to develop a mutually beneficial negotiation…but a fee of up to 35% of the total salary and benefits package for this specialty service is a significant investment.
There are of course a range of other reasons to use a Veterinary Recruitment Agency which is why we have prepared this list…such as veterinary industry trends intelligence, salary estimation or assistance with immigration. Be aware that fees can be significant, and whilst Veterinary Recruitment firms seldom publish their fees, the general fee range currently starts at around 15% of the first-year salary and benefits of the candidate and can be as high as 25%, and even 35% for highly targeted Executive Search projects, with the average being in the 17.5-20.0% range.
