Why Use a Recruitment Agency?

Recruiting new staff for your business, no matter how big or small, can be an extremely time consuming and expensive process. All employers want to find top talent – someone who’s going to come in and ‘grab the bull by the horns’ by showing great enthusiasm and drive towards their job role – but this talent isn’t found as easily as you might imagine.

This is where a Recruitment Agency can lend a helping hand…

Valuable Time Savers

  • Using a recruitment agency saves you days (and even weeks!) of time screening through hundreds of applications. Using an agency ensures you only have to make time in your busy workload to view candidates that could actually be valuable to your business.
  • An agency will organise and schedule interviews to your desired time and date, as well as deal with all communications with the candidate – so you can get back to the important stuff within your business.
  • A recruitment agency can use their specialist industry knowledge to provide you with valuable advice on negotiating job offers, and much more.
  • An agency will manage the entire procedure to make life as simple as possible for you; they will gather any candidate’s queries so that you can deal with them quickly, all at once.
  • If you’re seeking a temporary employee for your business, these can be filled at very short notice as the agency will already have a vast selection of pre-registered candidates.
  • Removes the costs of posting to job boards such as Indeed, CV Library and so on.
  • Removes the effect of your businesses’ in-house staff, who can continue to carry out their usual duties to a high standard.
  • Reduces the chances of a ‘bad hire’.
  • Reduces the cost of hiring in the future, as using the same recruitment agency means they will already have the knowledge of what suits your organisation making the recruitment process even faster.

Advice & Efficiency

Cost Saving – Short Term

  • Removes the costs of posting to job boards such as Indeed, CV Library and so on.
  • Removes the effect of your businesses’ in-house staff, who can continue to carry out their usual duties to a high standard.
  • Reduces the chances of a ‘bad hire’.

Cost Saving – Long Term

  • Reduces the cost of hiring in the future, as using the same recruitment agency means they will already have the knowledge of what suits your organisation making the recruitment process even faster.

Extended Reach

  • Real talent can be difficult to find. Recruitment agencies tend to have many networks in which they can find candidates to suit your business. An agency has the potential to influence their connections to help you find people with specific skills and experiences, many of which would be off the radar of an in-house team or hiring manager.
