The Calculation

The Potential Saving per Hire and the Potential Annual Saving results show the amount we estimate Hiring Hub could save you per hire and cumulatively across the year, based on the figures you entered.

These calculations factor in the time savings we estimate the platform can introduce via CV review and filtering, recruitment agency calls taken and the interview process conducted per role.

They also account for the time-to-hire average on the Hiring Hub platform, which can reduce the impact of the potential employee revenue lost while a role remains vacant. For more details on the market assumptions and Hiring Hub statistics used, please see the assumptions section below.


Core Assumptions:

When designing this calculator, we have used a set of core market assumptions gathered from published industry sources, our own experience in the recruitment industry, and statistics from the Hiring Hub platform that when combined, create the cost-per-hire calculation.

Below we have listed the assumptions and statistics for full transparency. We will update the calculator as these market assumptions and statistics change.
