Budget Approval Template

Hi [Insert Name],

I’m writing to check in with you about an opportunity to make this year’s hiring more efficient and effective. And yep, it’ll take some budget. I want to request [Insert X dollars for x amount of time] to make a successful hire for [Insert position(s)]. I think you’ll see it’s worth it.

As you know, I’ve been managing our job searches for [Insert months, years, or number of searches]. A successful hire depends on our ability to attract an excellent pool of candidates and access one easy management tool.

For me, that’s where Indeed comes in. Here’s some background:

  • 50.6 million people visit Indeed every month. So we’ll have access to one of the largest pools of online talent.
  • When we post a Sponsored Job, it significantly increases our visibility among this pool.
  • Sponsoring also provides, at no additional cost, access to Instant Match. With Instant Match, we’ll get a list of candidates whose resumes on Indeed match our job criteria. And we’ll be able to invite them to apply, right after we post.
  • We’re 3.5 times more likely to make an actual hire when we sponsor with Indeed.
  • And it doesn’t hurt that we’ll get 1:1 support from their hiring specialists. I’ll be able to call and get a response from a real person. That’s value added.

According to my calculations we’ll need [Insert X dollars for x amount of time] to make a successful hire for [Insert position(s)]. Can you approve this budget?

I believe sponsoring a job with Indeed will provide a return on investment when it comes to hiring the best candidates quickly and with ease. If you agree, let me know and I’ll connect with [Insert name of appropriate finance person at org] to move us a step closer to this hire.

Thanks for your consideration,

[Insert Name]
