The relationship between a client and their chosen recruitment agency should be a strong one with the recruiting specialists able to find talent for companies’ specific requirements and help that talent become hireable.
It is wise to choose an industry specific recruiter who knows your market inside out. The best recruiters become an extension to your business, with their finger on the pulse of their specialist markets, and able to give your hiring team insight in to what is happening. They will know the available talent, where they are and how to reach out to them, salary rates, career expectations, available skill-sets and current hiring complexities.
At MVP Search & Selection we like to work in partnership with our clients to fulfil every requirement.
A good recruiter will be able to source passive or selective talent. If candidates are not actively looking currently then there is still a strong chance that your specialist recruiter will know who they are and how to reach them. Agencies have many networks to help them connect you to people with a range of skills and experiences, many of who would be off the radar of an in-house team or hiring manager.
Without the help of a recruitment consultant, you may receive many applications via a web advert or through your website and it can require a lot of time to work through these applications to assess their suitability. It’s also likely that you will have a number that are not a suitable match for the role you are looking to fill, and these will need filtering out.
By working with a recruitment agency, you will see only candidates - job seekers who have been pre-selected to match all the criteria that you are looking for and who are worthy of consideration and interview. Saving you time and money.
A good recruitment agency will also be a huge advocate of your brand, giving potential candidates an insight into your business and the benefits and culture you encourage.
With talent shortages now potentially hindering the growth of many businesses, recruitment consultants can still access a pool of talent that is so vital in the current climate.
Ensure you agree guidelines for the recruitment process between yourself and the recruiter to that things can be dealt with in a timely manner with regards to interviews, feedback etc. Once you have developed a relationship with a Recruitment Agency that you trust, future hiring should be a straightforward process, as they will know the qualities you are searching for to ensure candidates are the right fit within your company.
A specialist recruitment consultant will ultimately save you time money and stress when attracting and retaining talent for your business, giving you peace of mind.
