Employers: Choosing a Recruitment Agency

Sometimes I wonder if agencies outnumber the employers. Even so, businesses are still hard pushed to find a recruiter who works outside from the "quick fix" method of supplying applicants and an absence of sector or job knowledge is sadly quite usual.

When it comes to something as personal and emotive as recruitment, ethics, service, value for money and professionalism all have to be top of the agenda. Choosing the right recruiting partner is mutually cost and time effective and makes recruitment a more palatable experience. Getting it wrong is a waste of time, resources and funds.

Success and failure is a mutual responsibility between the employer and the agent. For example, have you ever declined to meet the supplier? How often do you pass a vacancy to multiple agencies hoping they will all race against the clock and give you the perfect candidates? Have you ever been delighted at agreeing the lowest fee, and then wondered why you got the minimum service to match it?

Here are some key considerations to think about before you appoint an agency:-

Not all agencies are the same. The best ones will offer commitment, alternative employment solutions and value for money services. Finding the perfect partner is never easy but definitely worth the effort. Work with people you like and trust.
