The Cost Comparison Calculator: In-House vs Professional Recruitment

There are many issues to consider when weighing up the option of using a professional recruitment consultant vs the in-house alternative, including:

  • Your internal recruitment capacity and competence
  • The impact of making a bad hiring decision
  • The value of having a replacement guarantee
  • And, perhaps most importantly, the relative cost of the two options

Interestingly, whilst the cash flow impact of using a professional recruitment consultant is much higher, when all of the costs of in-house recruitment are taken into account the true cost is actually more expensive in most (but not all) cases.


The HirePay Recruitment Cost Comparison Calculator has been developed to enable you to compare the true cost of in-house vs professional recruitment on a case-by-case basis.
