Marginalizing Margins in the Microsoft Dynamics Contractor Market

Marginalizing Margins in the Microsoft Dynamics Contractor Market

It’s no secret that the Microsoft Dynamics contractor market is absolutely booming. And while Dynamics freelance consultants take advantage of some great day rates, the firms that hire them are frittering away hundreds of thousands of pounds in recruitment agency margins, bolstering the pockets of ambitious recruiters and cutting deep into project budgets. 

Microsoft Dynamics Contractor Recruiters take a large margin

Look at it this way: imagine you have a contractor on site for 12 months on £500 per day. The agency charging a 20% margin walks away with an astonishing £26,000 a year. I’ll say it again for dramatic effect… £26,000!  Has the recruitment agency really done enough for you to justify that?  Now think of your whole Dynamics team; how many are contractors? How much money is being squandered paying a recruiter’s rather excessive commission? The answer is a hell of a lot!

So many other industries have been shaken up by bringing the buyer and seller closer together. Look at Uber transforming the taxi industry, or Airbnb revolutionising the accommodation sector. In spite of all this, recruitment has endured unabated, a product of their self-interest and a lack of a great alternative to challenge the status quo.

Enter 365 Talent Portal to offer that great alternative in the Microsoft Dynamics contractor market. By partnering with Microsoft and offering exclusive access to a range of comprehensive Microsoft Dynamics training materials, we have amassed a community of almost 5,000 Dynamics freelancer and permanent consultants, almost 2,000 eligible to work here in the UK. This is a guarded community, vetted by industry experts, ensuring the highest quality candidates and ZERO recruiters lurking in the shadows waiting to pounce and tell you how they randomly have the perfect candidate for your newly posted role.

Cut out the Microsoft Dynamics Contractor recruiter middle man

By subscribing to the portal for a low monthly charge, hiring companies have the opportunity to post their assignments, alert our talent pool, reach out to candidates directly, and ultimately, remove the need for the middleman agency recruiter.

If you need more than just removing excessive recruiter mark-up charges, should you need someone to manage the contract, assume liability for the contractor, and deal with timesheets, invoices and payments, we can now offer our customers industry leading margins from just 6% for that additional service. Now I’m no mathematician but even I can see the savings are palpable!

So whether you’re a top Dynamics partner or Dynamics end user deep in the midst of an implementation, or just in the vendor selection phase, help us reset the status quo in the Microsoft Dynamics contractor market, and save your project from leaking cash in agency commissions…join 365 Talent Portal.
