Why You Should Use Recruitment Agencies in Seeking Staff

By Vera Shawiza / January 10, 2019




There are a lot of new measures and steps that both companies and those seeking employment put in place as the new year starts.

Most companies seek to RPI recruit new talents to join in helping them achieve their set goals while those seeking employment may want either to look out for new employers.

This is the best time for looking out for a recruitment agency by both employers and job seekers. A recruitment agency acts as an intermediary between a company that is looking to hire someone and a job seeker who is looking for employment.

A recruitment agency’s main function is to find the most suitable candidate for a job opening its recruiters has been asked to fill.

This is why it is important for job seekers to consider using a recruitment firm to find work more quickly and easily. Similarly, businesses in need of immediate staffing can easily and effectively bulk up their workforces with the help of a recruitment agency.

Recruitment agencies work in a number of different ways. Initially, a company will get in touch with them to say they have a role on offer. The recruitment agency will then either look at their current database, to find matching candidates or post the job online to source applicants with the right skills. When they have sourced some suitable candidates, they then send them through to the company for approval and generally arrange interviews for the best-matching candidates.

Some advantages of seeking the help of a recruitment agency include the following:

  1. Access to the best candidates

Recruitment agencies have access to a range of talented job seekers.

Skilled job seekers do not have time to search job boards. Instead, they use a recruiter they trust. The best recruiters will spot technical ability as well as jobseekers that align with your company values, resulting in a long-term successful hire.

One in every three jobseekers will change a job within their first year. Find the right candidate using a recruitment agency and avoid this costly statistic.

  1. Save time & money

Using a recruitment agency is quicker than hiring internally and will save your business time and money. Recruiters collect and assess CVs, check references and filter talented job seekers using the best interview techniques, so businesses don’t have to.

Build a relationship with a recruitment agency. Once a recruiter understands your business and goals, they will hire the right people in a timely, cost-effective manner.

  1. Industry expertise

A good recruitment agency will offer specialist recruiters for specific industries. Partner with a recruitment agency that understands your industry and they will offer industry-specific knowledge of market trends, salary levels and the skills required to be successful in your industry. Industry-specific recruiters also have access to skill-specific candidates.

  1. Expert recruitment law opinions

Recruitment law is complex and often misunderstood. Common areas of confusion include diversity in the workplace, maternity leave, wages, and unfair dismissals.

Recruiters are constantly keeping up to date with recruitment law and will help you avoid legal complications.

  1. Enable business growth and innovation

If you build a relationship with your recruiter, they can help your business grow and strengthen.

Using a recruitment agency means you find the best talent, and you receive support to maximize your businesses potential.

Recruitment agencies do not just provide people, they provide talent and support to help businesses grow.
