Respected Members,
I am working as HR Generalist with an IT company of 50 employees where most of the time I need to work on hiring because I am single HR in company. I am not provided with any job portal or consultant, only hiring tool is linkedin and free job posting websites, where I used to get very less or irrelevant resumes. This time I have very crucial position to hire but management is not ready to spend. Attracted employees' reference with lucrative bonus but doesn't work. Even after a long experience in recruitment, I am feeling helpless.
Please guide !

Please go for employee referrals, free consultancies(Charges payment from candidate) and News paper ad along with free portals.

Dear Rekha,
I understand your recruitment challenges. Nevertheless, even before recruitment, you need to find a creative solution to convince management on importance of subscription of the services provided by the job portals. As such yours is a unbranded company. With stalwarts of your industry in fray, anyway getting quality candidates is a challenge. To reduce the cost of recruitment, if your management wishes to rely on the secondary means of recruitment like Linkedin, you will not get quality candidates. Reliance on secondary means narrows your choice of the candidates.
May be management told that recruitment of the right candidates is the first step of maintaining the quality of the products/services or even customer satisfaction. Have you measured the cost of poor recruitment? Please try measuring it to augment your arguments.

Thanks Mr. Divekar for your suggestion.
@Rambabu G: I have already posted on indeed but very less and irrelevant responses received.
@ Aniket Pathak: I have invited employee referrals, free consultancies(Charges payment from candidate): for position even candidates not pay to consultancy bcoz they ave ample options and News paper add doesn't work much when we are hiring experience candidates.

Dear Rekha,
I can relate to your situation and shall advice from my experience that free postings and searches work, however, they have their own limitations. Not all skills are easily available, certain skills are difficult to be found through these portals and most of them are active job-seekers. One also requires a lot of time and effort to chase those candidates.
If you have tried all your free sources then, it is time that you persuade your management to utilize the skill of a consultant/ head- hunter, you have to present them a list of why it is efficient to use one. As you mentioned it is a crucial role that you are trying to fill, is it worth to wait for another month or so to get a free hire or is it better to pay a small amount and get someone on board who would add-on to the organisation's revenue. If the management is still ready to wait, I don't think it is a crucial role.
Also, you can negotiate the charges & payment terms with the recruitment consultants to bring down the cost.
Wish you luck in closing the position
