With growing competition from Internet-based job boards, many workplaces take a ‘DIY’ approach to hiring new staff. Whilst modern technology is a fantastic tool for this approach, using a recruitment agency is still your best bet when it comes to hiring the best person for the position. Here’s why:
Recruitment agencies constantly have their finger on the pulse of their specialist market. They know their industry, the skills required within it, and they have access to a pool of people who may not be actively looking on job boards. This extended reach means that you have access to targeted candidates, rather than just a bunch of applicants.
Recruitment agencies spend years investing into the infrastructure of finding people. Once established, it’s reasonably straightforward to quickly create a list of relevant individuals within a specific market and begin the process. Delegate your shortlisting to the experts, utilising an agency’s investments and insights.
3. Wisely or Wasted
It’s an issue of time. When you have a vacancy in your business, the chances are high that you’re already under-resourced. Advertising for a position, filtering through and responding to all applicants, phone screening, interviewing, and verifying & checking references can become a full-time job. Consider how much more precious time you will have when you empower a Recruitment Specialist to manage these tasks for you.
4. 2 Degrees of Awkward
New Zealand is a wonderfully tight-knit community. Whilst our ‘2 degrees of separation’ can be a great asset for relationships and team morale, it can quickly become awkward when hiring from a competitor. Having a third-party involved can help maintain professional boundaries and ensure that best practice is always applied.
5. Reach your Niche
A specialist Recruitment agency really knows the challenges, regulations, backstories, and players within a particular industry of focus – constantly keeping up to date with new standards and changes.
