What are the advantages of using an agency over employer direct recruitment?

Recruitment agencies are specialists at sourcing and placing candidates. If you needed new IT systems, you’d seek out an IT specialist, if you needed to upgrade your physical infrastructure, you’d talk to a builder or an architect.

Your people are your most important asset, and you should enlist the help of recruitment professionals to help you build your business with the best people.

Additionally, when you have a position vacant, you will most likely need to take out newspaper and online advertisements, and then sort and analyse each of the applications you receive. Following this, there is scheduling and holding interviews, and for shortlisted candidates, the process of verifying education, employment history and criminal background of your potential employees. All of this takes a significant amount of time and impacts your HR and/or management teams’ productivity.

Also important to consider is that job seekers, and subsequently employers, also benefit from going through a recruitment agency. We can talk with them about their career objectives and ensure the position they are applying for is in line with this. As we have numerous roles available and operate across several industries, we can recommend alternate roles where appropriate and ensure the right people are placed in the right role, benefiting both candidates and employers.
