A consulting firm that posted a job for a client online has a clause in their form to pay a certain percent of your first month salary to them. Is this right?

I know of a couple of consultanting firms that do that. Usually, you would pay for it if the job wasn't advertised and they were the ones who searched for a suitable position for you.

It's totally wrong for you to pay for a job the client advertised. Obviously the client will pay them money for it and also, they would get money from you. That's being sly

Nigerians always like looking for ways to cheat their fellow Nigerians.

If they ask you to pay AFTER you get the job, then you can just consider a 'consultation fee'.

However, if the ask you to pay before you're given the job, then I think the smell of rotten fish is coming from this cupboard.

They have to let you know the percentage. Its even preferable they are giving you the job first unlike you paying before getting the job. Just know the percentage they are collecting then you choose if you are to sacrifice or not. Thank u

Recruiting firms charge some percentage on your first salary if they source and interview you for the client.

I paid 50% of my first salary to the firm that sourced and interviewed me for my present job, I didn't feel cheated though cos I started the job half way into the month.

Job is hard to come by these days.

Trust me, it isn't only a portion of your first salary. You may also unknowingly have a percentage taken from your monthly pay depending on the contract between the client and consulting firm. Most times, you'd be paid through the consulting firm by the client so deductions are made before you get your pay and since you were not directly employed by the client, you won't be privy to what the consulting firm is collecting. Some take as much as 50%. This would usually be the case of you are outsourced but if the consulting firm only acts a hiring consultants then it is possible that you pay this one off fee. What the percentage?

The 2nd scenario is the case- client advertised a vacancy through them and paid them for the services, now they want to collect from the employee too. Double income!!!!

In my own opinion, if they are genuine, then there is nothing wrong. As the op mentioned, they get a % of his first salary. meaning its after he gets the job.

Back in the days, after my sec sch, me and my friend paid a job consulting firm #300 each for jobs. We had to choose from 5 different jobs. Since then I respect the genuine ones.

Consulting is the consulting of enterprises, managers and management personnel on legal, financial, investment and other issues. If you are looking for really professionals in your field, I advise you to contact devere group complaints. Good luck
