Our Exclusive & Retained Pricing Models
How much does it cost and why?
When you partner exclusively with Kingston Human Capital, you’ll benefit from our unwavering commitment to delivering the best talent, every time.

What factors shape recruitment costs?

  • Time and labour dedicated to your project - ie the number of team members we will allocate to your role
  • Reach - do you need a local, national or global search?
  • Marketing - would your project benefit from a video campaign? Video is incredibly effective - 87% of marketing professionals use video to engage with their audience.
  • Advertising - beyond standard job board advertising, do you need a targetted social media campaign?
  • Project delivery time - does the urgency of your project require our team to work beyond standard hours?
  • Testing - do you require candidates to complete psychometric (or other) testing?
  • Placement guarantee - what length of replacement guarantee do you require?
Placement guarantee

Placement guarantee

We confidently offer a 3-month guarantee on all permanent placements (and 6 months for executive permanent placements.

This means if we get it wrong, we’ll replace the candidate free of charge.

Since our business began in 2013, we’ve had to exercise our replacement guarantee twice.
