Lily Cherry, Project Manager of 1066 Shortlist explains;

“In this day and age putting a job advert out in the local paper can become quite tedious. You may not receive the high response of applications you were hoping for due to the small amount of people that actually buy the local paper now. Here at 1066 Shortlist we are able to get our clients on the most popular online job boards filtering and managing the best CVs and candidates for you to interview”

So what do their clients say about 1066 Shortlist? John Brunton who owns ‘BR Web Consulting’ a web development company in Hastings adds;

‘I had always struggled to find suitable staff via the Job Centre, but was reluctant to use recruitment agencies due to the high fees they charge. 1066 Shortlist completely changed my perception of agencies and they managed to find me a fully qualified developer within only a week after I had unsuccessfully tried other methods for three months! I’ve since hired an additional SEO Executive, again using 1066 Shortlist. I would highly recommend them for all your recruitment needs.’ 

This service is great for filling any role as we utilise national job boards with a huge range of candidates. If you own a business or manage a team and you need help filling your vacancies, then 1066 Shortlist’s services might be just what you’re looking for.

What is flat fee recruitment?

Flat fee recruitment (also known as fixed fee recruitment) is the process in which a company charges an agreed price up front for a recruitment service. No extra charges are incurred, even if you hire more than one candidate from the campaign. 1066 Shortlist provide a number of services to suit your needs and budget.

1066 Shortlist’s Flat fee recruitment service can get your job advert on all these sites and more.

Mike Sherwood, managing director of M-Connect and co-founder of 1066 Shortlist explains the reasons for launching;

“Being in the Creative Media Centre we have had many conversations with business owners and the problems they’ve been facing in finding the right staff in a reasonable time frame. We helped one business find the perfect candidate for a specialist role within a week. They had previously spent 3 months using every local advertising avenue without finding anyone suitable. They now use us for every role as it saves them time and money and lets them get on with running their business.”

This result quickly resulted in repeat business for 1066 Shortlist. Mike continues;

“The results were so positive and we saw how quickly it helped our client fill roles they had traditionally struggled with. We realised that other businesses in the area might want to have access to a similar service that saves money, time and hassle.

“We offer a chance to be seen on multiple premium job boards viewed by millions of active job hunters and utilise our recruitment expertise at a fraction of the usual cost. 1066 Shortlist was started so that we could help business in the area find the perfect shortlist of candidates for the roles they are recruiting for.”
