Recruitment Agency Margins
After agencies have ascertained the amount of money that contractors want to be paid they add on the recruitment agency margins before they send off the contractor’s CV to a client.
Typically, an agency’s margin would be somewhere between 10% and 20%.
However, some agencies rip contractors off and add on more than that. I’ve heard of agencies taking 50% or more of a contractor’s money that the client pays.
This is usually for first time contractors who don’t know the market well.
Contractors have got to be on their guard as far as agencies are concerned.[caption id="attachment_861" align="alignnone" width="160"] Contract Recruitment agency get contractors jobs[/caption]
