Why work with a recruitment agency

  • 6 January 2023

When considering a recruitment agency for the hiring process, we all know the main purpose is for the recruitment consultancy to find the perfect candidate for the job. But, have you considered all the other benefits partnering with a recruitment agency will bring?

Using a reputable recruitment agency can be highly beneficial, not only to the hiring manager but also to your company as a whole. Here we outline the key advantages you can expect.

1. Market Knowledge

Candidate requirements are often specific and require industry expertise and market knowledge to find the right person for the job. A recruitment agency like ours has a team of professionals specialising in particular sectors and we are likely to have better knowledge of technical roles and understand the skills, qualifications and experience needed to fill them. We can also spot transferable skills that you may miss.

Recruitment consultants stay abreast of industry news and trends, not only in their specialist market but in the recruitment sector as a whole, and can give you regular insight into what is happening within your industry.

Our industry expertise and market knowledge is priceless.

2. We Find the Best Talent

Recruiters know how to reach out to the best available talent.

76% of hiring decision makers say attracting quality candidates is their number one challenge.

We have access to a large quantity of high-quality job seekers, who are already screened and referenced. Candidates actively seeking work are more likely to register with a recruitment agency for efficiency and access to the best available roles. 

Our reach and search network is wider than just candidates seeking employment, we can also identify talented prospects who are currently employed elsewhere. By leveraging our networks and searching expensive systems that help find candidates with the specific skills your company is looking for we can help connect you to the right people.  

You can be confident that the candidates we present have been interviewed by one of our consultants to ensure their skills match what is written on their CV and that they are of high calibre and a good fit for your business. All this helps shorten the time to hire.

3.Time Savers 

Using a recruitment agency will save you time and allow you to focus on running your business. We take care of the initial steps in the hiring process by sifting through CVs, qualifying candidates, shortlisting the best matching profiles, scheduling interviews and preparing your candidates for interview.

Agencies take the admin off your plate by working with your successful candidates to handle any contract negotiations, salary discussion, verifying qualifications and checking references. We also ensure that we communicate with unsuccessful applicants. All of this reduces the time and in-house resources required for recruitment, leading to a leaner and faster recruitment process.

4. Less Risk and Long Term Expense

By hiring the right candidate in the first instance (remember we have spent the time making sure they have the right skillset and are a good match for your business) you will reduce the risk of hiring someone who is unfit for the role and the long term expense associated with future hiring costs including training costs and staff time.

It costs employers 33% of a worker’s annual salary to hire a replacement if that worker leaves.

5. Additional Services

The most significant advantage about working with a recruitment agency is knowing that this is our speciality. We do this day-in and day-out. We have the expertise that you most likely do not have in-house, including:

  • The expertise to write compelling job adverts with an insight into new developments within the digital sector maximising the number of highly skilled candidates applying.
  • Working as brand ambassadors to uphold your company’s reputation and values. Ensuring your hiring is done both professionally and effectively, as well as acting as advocates for underrepresented groups to reduce bias and promote diversity within your workplace.
  • Negotiating a mutually acceptable salary and remuneration package. Before entering salary negotiations we can help you benchmark remuneration against other businesses in your industry and accurate market rates.
  • Advising on relocation criteria and expenses within the UK and Europe.

Our main goal is to save you time and find you the best professionals that you and your business need. Because, as we say at Inavise, innovation needs the right people.
