paid 225,000 GBP. A brand new job for a brand new office that needs to hire another 2 dozen technologist (get my drift).
Now I agreed to a 15% fee 0 day guarantee and exclusive rights to the search (not retainer, just exclusivity) fee due upon receipt.
It worked out well and the candidate just started.
Now I will be getting the other reqs to work on @ 25%.
So it is relative...…
