What are the benefits of working with an agency?
Posted on 2nd August 2018 at 15:01
The Recruitment industry is fierce and highly competitive, known to some as “a necessary evil” but really a Recruiter’s job is simply to add value to your business and enable you to have access to the best talent in the market.
A good working relationship with a Recruiter not only gives you the best results within an agreed timeframe but can become an extension of your in HR or in – house recruitment teams
Here are 10 reasons to work with an agency and why you should consider Recruit 2 You as your partner agency;
We are a service provider and we specialise in delivering exceptional service every time – regardless of the size or value. Working together we become an extension of your team, we take on your encounters as though they were our own and see them through until they are accomplished.
One of the most significant aspects of working with an agency is accountability. We thrive in deadline-driven environments and are held accountable for every part of our service. And we must do this on time and on budget.
Access to Resources
If you use a Recruitment Agency you’re statistically more likely to access the best candidates on the market! People who are actively looking for new positions are also more likely to register with agencies. In addition, most recruitment agencies will position their vacancy announcements on a variety of job boards, and they would recognise what it takes for that advertisement to rank highly in candidates’ job searches. All of this is knowledge that you only get from working in the sector.
External Perspective on the Brand
One of the most valuable services an agency offers is to bring an external perspective to your brand. This means looking at your business as YOUR clients do, seeing what they see and communicating that back in direct and productive ways. That outside perspective is both informative and incredibly important to our clients because it can help them break out of old habits, attitudes and ideas that may be holding them back from making meaningful development and accomplishing growth.
Many organisations have an internal recruitment function, but even they have agencies to help fulfil campaigns for them. Operationally, it might be more cost-effective to contract this highly specialised work out to professionals. We’re not employees, and therefore, are self-sufficient, self-sustaining and driven to get the job done on time. This translates to reduced overhead and better results. In summary, there are a lot more positives than negatives to partnering with an agency.
Shortlisting suitable candidates
Recruitment agencies will only shortlist the correctly qualified individuals, meaning that you don’t have to – which is a huge time saver. Occasionally, your requirements might be very specific and you need an expert who understands the candidates in these positions and has a database of them to call upon. In this instance, using a recruitment agency means that only candidates who are fully qualified and have experience for the role will be shortlisted for the position. A recruitment agency will achieve the procedure for you, discarding any unsuitable candidates and handling any enquiries about the role.
Another great motive to use a Recruitment Agency might be to stretch your flexibility in your recruitment preparation to meet a critical demand or to cover holiday in busy periods such as Christmas. Temporary recruitment agencies will take a vast sum of the pain and strain away from companies who need quick access to temporary candidates.
A reliable Recruitment Agency can be used repeatedly for available positions within a company. Once they have found a successful candidate for a company, the company will feel confident that they will be able to do so again, and it will take the worry out of the process. It means that when new positions become available, the agency will have the details they need and can find the perfect candidate as soon as possible.
