Why use a recruitment agency?


Recruitment agencies help jobseekers to find their dream role, whilst helping companies secure the perfect candidate. Companies use an agency for numerous reasons, for instance:


Time saving – Agencies filter advert responses to manageable levels, as more and more people are applying for the same positions.


Experience in the recruitment process – Agencies advertise using many platforms, thus attracting a wide range of potential candidates. This then requires shortlisting, screening and referencing, prepping candidates for interviews, company and client liaison, and managing the candidate through their notice period to their start date.


Industry knowledge – Consultants recruit daily so they make it their business to have a high level of knowledge related to the industry sectors they recruit for; Recruiters are aware of employment trends of their sector and local area.


Cost Savings – Costs are lowered with an agency, as they handle the whole of the recruitment process from start to finish.  No costs are incurred until you are completely satisfied with your hire.


Building a business partnership – Consultants aim to build a lasting relationship with the company they are recruiting for, tailoring their processes and being consultative when required in order to assist companies in attracting their perfect hire.
