General

  • What’s with the Fruition Recruitment name and the logo?

    The Fruition Recruitment name was derived from a love of the phrase when ideas ‘come to fruition’: which means the attainment of anything desired; for dreams to come true; representing accomplishment and efforts realised, or the ‘state of bearing fruit.’

    In line with the ‘fruit’ of the name Fruition, the Golden Pear was chosen for the business logo as this symbol traditionally represents prosperity and good fortune.

    The font of the word ‘Fruition’ is actually Jane Austen’s replicated handwriting, representing a love of literature and of the written word.

  • What does ‘segmented recruitment’ mean?

    We understand clients may only wish to engage Fruition Recruitment support during certain parts of the recruitment process. Segmented recruitment is a Fruition Recruitment service by which a client may elect any aspect of the recruitment process as a standalone service.

    For example, business owners Fruition Recruitment have worked with in the past have only asked for a recruitment advertisement to be written. Others have asked Fruition Recruitment to only support them by participating on the interview ‘panel’, asking the HR behavioural questions to shortlisted candidates and being able to provide real time feedback and advice after each candidate interviews. Other clients have asked Fruition Recruitment to shortlist an advertisement response in a skills matrix against the key selection criteria, to solely manage the offer process, or conduct references, or provide skills testing, or any combination of the above and more. Fruition Recruitment charge on a ‘Recruitment’ fee basis for these standalone services, and the investment required is established upfront once an understanding of the requirements has been assessed.

  • When you say recruitment ‘consulting fee’ what charge range can I expect?

    Fruition can support clients with a full end-to-end recruitment process for a set fee, or clients can simply select any aspect(s) of a recruitment campaign they would like assistance with, and we will just charge on a consultation basis. Only need an advertisement written? Just need some help shortlisting or screening? Only require a support when you interview candidates? Want an unbiased third party to negotiate the offer process? Fruition are experts at every stage.

    As a guide, the average isolated consulting fee for recruitment work is around $480.00.

  • What are the fees for Fruition's recruitment services?

    Our end-to-end recruitment service fees for permanent recruitment start from $3,980.00 and depend on the calibre of role that requires recruitment support. However, we operate on a set fee range and establish the full charges up front that don’t change throughout the recruitment process. We also don’t charge a fee based on a percentage of the successful candidates salary package.

  • How much do you charge for writing?

    Due to the range of Fruition’s writing services on offer, Fruition’s jobs come in all shapes and sizes. This variety makes our work fun, but it’s also the reason why we don’t have a set price listing. Instead, we focus on speaking you extensively beforehand about how long a job will take and how much it will cost, so there is a set fee established upfront and there are no nasty surprises.

  • Do you charge for writing work amendments?

    Minor amendments are completely free of charge. However, we do charge if the amendment requests require any re-writing or substantial editing, but we’d always let you know before we do the work if this is the case.

  • How does the copywriting process work?

    An initial meeting (or email or phone discussion) will be followed by a quote based on your verbal or written brief and mutually agreed deadlines. At this meeting and any follow-up meetings, Fruition will take the time to get to know you and your company – generally this involves asking lots of questions! Any additional background material you are able to provide will help the copywriting process.

  • How do I get a quote for a business writing project?

    You can either call Fruition to discuss your project over the phone, or email a project outline that tells us what it is you need written, how long you need it to be, what you need it to achieve, and who your target audience is. If you have a very urgent and imminent deadline for the project we would need to know that too. We would then give you a call to discuss your requirements and get back to you with a quote within 24 hours.
