As a manager of a business you will have had phone calls from recruiters trying to help you find staff.
While you may instinctively want to turn down these calls, for fear of costs or time wasting with inappropriate candidates, you should think again.
There are some great benefits from using a recruitment consultant, such as:
You don’t have to go through the steps of developing a recruitment plan, or searching for applicants and then screening applicants. Recruitment consultants can bring applicants with the right skills or qualifications straight to you.
Recruitment consultants will have already screened candidates, cutting the time for you filtering through. They will have had extensive conversations with candidates and will know them better than merely what’s on their resume.
By finding you the right candidate sooner, rather than having to rehire or readvertise when you can’t find staff
Recruitment consultants have access to a large talent pool, so may be able to reach skilled/qualified people you are unable to
They will be in constant contact, preparing them for the interview and then negotiating contracts between you as the employer and your new hire.
With access to such a large talent pool, recruitment consultants can really help to bring you the best candidates for your role.
They will save you so much time in your recruitment, as well as in the negotiations and admin after hiring, so you can carry on with running your business.
