Are you wondering if you should you turn to a recruitment agency to help you fill your job positions?

In today’s highly competitive job market, finding and hiring the right candidate can be challenging and time consuming.

This is why many businesses turn to recruitment companies to help them secure the best candidates for the role.

Should you do the same? How can a recruitment agency help you fill your open job positions?

There are many benefits that come with using the professional services of a recruitment agency.

By using a professional, local recruitment company, you can benefit as follows:


Hire candidates faster

There are two main ways in which using a recruitment agency can save your company time. Firstly, the hiring process can be quite time-consuming.   Recruiting internally will take you and/or your staff away from your business activities.

Secondly, recruitment agencies are professionals who recruit for living.  It is what they do day in and day out.  Chances are, they already have candidates in their applicant pool who are exactly the right fit for your open job positions. This is a great advantage that can significantly shorten the recruiting process. In other words, you can hire the best candidate much faster!


Hire highly qualified candidates

A recruitment company will improve your quality of hire. The main advantage of using a recruitment agency is that their consultants are specialised in certain industries, which means they most likely already have a pool of highly skilled candidates at their disposal, or know how to find them.

Recruitment companies recruit for living, which means that they have the expertise not only in finding great candidates, but also making sure that these candidates are indeed a great fit for your business.


Keep your professional appearance

Many companies such as small businesses, don’t have a dedicated in-house human resources team.

To ensure that your hiring process is done professionally and effectively, you can choose to use the services of recruitment agencies. If you don’t know how to recruit in a highly professional manner, it is best to leave it to experts from recruitment agencies.


Retain your new hires

For many companies, the most important advantage of using a recruitment agency instead of in-house recruiters, is that recruitment agencies offer additional security when it comes to new hire retention.

Most recruitment agencies offer guarantee periods. This means that they guarantee your new hire will stay at your company for a certain period of time (usually 3–6 months). If your new hire is terminated or leaves before the expiry of a guarantee period, recruitment agencies find a new, replacement candidate for no extra charge.

Choosing the right recruitment agency can help you recruit and retain the right people faster and even cheaper!
