There are a lot of different options available when looking to recruit more staff, but which should you choose? If a recruitment agency is one of the options you’re considering, you may be wondering about this very question. In this blog, we’ll take a look at the top 5 benefits of choosing a recruitment agency to help you find your future employees.
Firstly, let’s identify all available options for finding new staff;
All of these can be great options dependant on several key factors you’ll need to identify and weigh up before choosing. In our next blog, we’ll cover these 3 options in greater detail, weighing up the pros and cons of each. We’ll also help you come to the conclusion of which is right for you, stay tuned.
There are a whole host of benefits to choosing a recruitment agency, we’ll be picking our top 5 and detailing them below. In no particular order, here they are;
A key benefit to note which can often be overlooked is the speed at which each method produces results. Although it may seem quick to post on social media or make a job site listing, it will require buckets of admin time to sift through the many underskilled applicants in order to pick out the best. A recruitment agency specialises in this process so is able to quickly and efficiently find your next employee, resulting in an overall speedier process.
Recruitment agencies will have large pools of candidates that specialise in the job role you’re looking to fill. Rather than sifting through a huge mass of candidates, they’ll be able to quickly pick out those with the exact skills you’re looking for. This means you’re likely to get better final candidates as a recruitment agency simply has more to pick from.
As a recruitment agency, you can expect them to have recruited a fair few candidates before. This means they will have the specialist insight that allows them to easily identify if a candidate will be a good employee or not. From the way they write their CV or present themselves in an interview, a recruitment agency can pick up on all the less obvious red flags which you could miss. Similarly, they’ll be able to identify the strongest from the bunch too.
Developing on the above, you can rest assured that you’ll only be receiving the most skilled, relevant and quality employees. Unlike an alternative, such as a job site, you won’t be left with hundreds of applicants with varying levels of skill and expertise. A recruitment agency will ensure to sift out any that won’t be right for the role and only put forward the highest quality candidates.
One of the biggest reasons employers choose a recruitment agency over any other method is because they can send over the relevant details and that’s it. Most businesses don’t have any staff dedicated to the recruitment process, so it's much easier and requires the least time to use a recruitment agency instead.
