Recruiting new staff for your business is something that is inevitable. Ensuring that you have the best-suited and highest-achieving team within your business will hugely impact how much success you have. Now, more than ever, hiring the right candidate is imperative but with a growing skills shortage and many companies looking to for staff, it is becoming harder and harder to find the right candidates for your company.
With all this in mind, what is the solution?
For many companies, partnering with a recruitment agency is the answer. A recruitment agency will deliver the best candidates right when you need them. There are also several other reasons why you should utilise a recruitment agency.

#5 Benefits of Using a Recruitment Agency
Benefit #1: Better candidates
A big issue with companies recruiting internally is that there isn’t one approach that can be applied to every situation. In other words: because the role, company, client, candidate requirements and industry vary across every position – it can often be a very daunting task to decide which type of candidate would be best for your business. This nearly always leads to companies settling on the first ‘suitable’ candidate they find which can cause a whole range of problems when it comes to light that they in fact are not the right person for the role.
To eliminate this issue, each of our recruitment consultants is specially trained to adapt to every situation and be able to identify which individual is best suited for every position. Whether we are presented with your recruitment needs and decide to actively seek new talent or take the approach of contacting our active talent pool, we will always compare multiple candidates and make sure we find what you are looking for.
Benefit #2: Time-saving
We have access to a plethora of tools to help you with your recruitment needs. We have a vast talent pool, numerous connections and electronic systems that allow us to find and contact individuals that fit your requirements as a business. With all these resources we can find the most suitable candidates in a much shorter time, saving you all the stress.
Secondly, as obvious as it may seem, our sole job as a recruitment agency is to recruit. Not only do we have all the resources and people available to us, but we also do this all day, every day. To have the full attention of one of our recruitment consultants (who each specialise in your industry) will save you copious amounts of time and effort.
Benefit #3: Promote Positions
Often times, when employers advertise vacancies, it can take far too long for the right candidate to apply because they simply do not see the advertisement. When employers advertise vacancies, particularly for specialist roles, they are looking for experienced candidates with expert skills and knowledge. In most cases, this type of candidate just doesn’t see the advert. Whether this is down to lack of time, poor advertising or lack of connections; it is something that happens to employers every day. Using a recruitment agency will amplify the reach of a company’s advert by a huge amount.
Using a recruitment agency to advertise vacancies (almost) fully eliminates these risks. Not only will we advertise a vacancy through all of the means that we have access to, we have hundreds of already-established relationships with quality candidates. Whether it is a candidate that we have placed in a position before or someone that has registered with us, all of the candidates that we put forward are of the highest standard.
Benefit #4: Industry Insights
It is our job to keep up-to-date with the relevant changes, developments and trends in the industries that we recruit for. Every industry and market changes all of the time. As an employer, it is almost impossible to stay on top of all of these changes. That’s where a recruitment agency comes in. Our recruitment consultants are there to guide you through the entire recruitment process from start to finish. This means they can provide recommendations throughout the process to ensure you receive the best applications. Whilst doing this, we will also work with you to make sure we fulfill your wants and needs.
With all of this in mind, the best recruitment agencies – when it comes to industry insights – are those that operate in specific and niche sectors. All of our recruiters are experts in their field and will help you throughout the whole process.
Benefit #5: Access to more candidates
Sometimes, when recruiting for certain roles, speaking with potential candidates that are actively looking just isn’t enough. That’s where we come in. It takes training, time and skill to convert passive talent (a term used in recruitment to describe someone who is not actively looking for a job) into a candidate ready to start their new career. When a specific job or employer requires a candidate of a certain calibre, speaking to candidates who are actively looking might not cut it. Considering how difficult this can be, our consultants are trained and skilled enough to know where and how to find them and how to incentivise them to make the move.
