Have you ever considered the time, risk and expense of recruiting yourself?
A recruitment agency can lead you to opportunities you had never considered before and can help bring calmness to the craziness that the job searching process brings along.
Here are some of the benefits working with a third-party recruitment agency
1. Focus on Your Core Business
The time spent on recruiting staff distracts from your business activities. This time could be better spent on securing sales or liaising with customers.
2. Focus on Your Existing Staff
Although new staff are necessary when the need arises, the time it takes to do yourself may be better spent on up skilling your current staff to ensure you retain them.
3. Access to Large Pool of candidates
Agencies have database of hundreds or thousands of candidates. Often, these job seekers are passive and may not be actively looking for a new role but will consider one if it is presented to them by their recruitment consultant. Specialist agencies in your field will have a large pool of candidates that suit your vacant position.
4. Screening and Interviewing
Because it is their profession and they do it all day, every day, recruitment consultants are experts in screening and interviewing candidates. You may not be as well trained as them in this.
5. Low Risk
No-placement, no-fee. Recruitment agencies will headhunt and advertise on their job boards on your behalf all before charging you anything. The fee is only incurred when a successful placement is made. We also operate a sliding-scale refund system for up to 12 weeks after an employee starts.
6. Specialist Recruiters
If the role you are trying to fill is highly specialized, blanket advertising may not yield results. Specialist agencies will be able to determine better fit between candidate and employer as they interact with these type people all the time.
7. Cost effective
When you add up labor hours spent and opportunity cost, using an agency is more cost effective then undertaking your own recruitment, especially for small businesses.
By advertising yourself, you give competitors insight into your company and lose your competitive edge. Recruitment agencies keep client identity undisclosed during the initial recruitment process.
9. Industry Knowledge
Recruitment agencies can be valuable sources of market trends, salary information and industry facts. We like to keep our clients informed via website, social media and newsletters.
10. Speed and Efficiency
Because recruitment is all they do, agencies will act quickly and thoroughly on their positions. The consultants have a real passion for their job, so will do the best possible job in the fastest possible time.
Ultimately, working with a recruitment agency can expedite your job search and do so for free.
You tap into the experience of a professional and get a second set of eyes helping you find the best candidates that matches what you are looking for.
