FAQs


No - with REflex, you own 100% of your business and you decide the path of success you want to take.

If you want to grow your business, attract talent, and branch out into other regions or sectors, we would look at transitioning your business into a full joint venture with us.

There is zero upfront cost. Essentially it is completely free to set up with this full infrastructure and support, along with accessing the management support. It is paid for only when you bill and paid by the end client.

Outside of the free Job Slot on LinkedIn Recruiter that comes as part of the package, you can access as many job boards as you wish. These would need to be paid for by your business directly, although for some job boards we are able to attain cheaper rates.

Minimising data input and administrative activities was a priority for us when choosing our support tools. If you use our CRM and website, you can: post jobs on your website directly from your CRM; voice note to record candidate interview details instead of typing them up; automatically feed any bookings on your CRM through to an invoice and set up a credit control process managed by our finance support. These are just some of the efficiency gains which give you back more time to work with clients and candidates and keep on billing. 

You name it, we've seen it. You can access management support on anything affecting your business, whether client strategy, legal issues, marketing, or talent attraction strategy. There is not an area of recruitment business support that we can't advise or directly support you with. We're here to help you overcome any challenges of running a recruitment business.
