With the recruitment picking up in 2015 and companies now looking to expand and develop their situation we are now faced with a new set of challenges, business new and old are continually hunting for the very best talent and with a lack of skills this is resulted in a shortage in candidates available and ready to move
Due to the skills shortage situation companies are all competing against each other for the best talent this is now resulting in driving up expected salaries from job seekers
The challenge now is for companies to attract the talent they require by making vacancies as appealing as possible and sell their companies as best they can to potential new employees.
So much effort and emphases goes into attracting new staff that the existing workforce often gets forgotten and this is when people start to take notice of the market and what competitors are offering in terms of salaries/packages and are more likely to go to agencies to secure their next role.
Agencies/Recruiters often get a bad reputation and are often seen as “Hard-core salespeople” who’s only agenda is to make money for themselves, not caring about the jobseeker or client. This is not the case, an agency can be integral for both jobseeker and client. Nowadays agencies/recruiters focus on building long-term relationships with both clients and candidates and put a lot of effort into building these relationships. This is even more important now due to the skills shortage we are facing
A good recruiter will understand the clients requirement s and needs and will look to “match” accordingly to the specification they were given, they won’t just send numerous CV’s hoping that one will take the fancy of the hirer, a good recruiter will also understand the client’s needs long-term, should know the business inside out in terms of projects they currently working on/tendering for, competitors, size of office etc. and a good recruiter should be able to class themselves as a “recruitment partner” and not just an end to a means for the hiring client.
Using an agency should be easy and cost effective and should save the client time, using an agency will vet all CV’s and will shortlist the best CV’s to send, agencies should meet all of the candidates they are representing before they send CV’s copies of all relevant qualifications should have been taken as well as a number of references. Agencies are also there to educate you the “client” in market trends, salary advice, what competitors are doing and who is available etc. As well as our own database of suitable candidates that would have been built up over a number of years agencies will have access to numerous job boards and social media devices to help us recruit and advertise. It is a recruiter’s job to speak to hundreds of candidates, vet thousands of CVs and meet as many candidates as possible so you don’t have to which means you can concentrate on your role
