Why a recruitment agency will save you time and money
Sometimes it might feel like the perfect candidate just doesn’t exist, or you’re up against other companies, struggling to find the same people. As a result, a lot of time can be invested in filtering, assessing and communicating with candidates that just don’t seem to fit the bill.
Great recruiters understand this, so actively build new talent relationships. This means that even if your ideal candidates are not actively looking for work, a great recruiter will know who they are and how to reach out to them.
A great recruiter will have tried and tested recruitment processes and procedures in place to save you time, and know industry salary rates, career expectations, current skill-sets and even shortages to help you navigate the current market.
To help attract the best candidates, a great recruiter will act as your business ambassador and sell your business to the candidate, with insight into business culture, benefits and career opportunities.
Common challenges businesses face
With 20 plus years in the recruitment field, we often come across the same issues faced by businesses.
“I don’t have time”
All too often, we find businesses don’t have time to backfill positions. One mid-sized Ballarat business saw the finance officer promoted to General Manager however, the new GM still had to take care of their old finance duties because they hadn’t backfilled the finance position. We stepped in to free up the GM’s time by managing the entire candidate selection process. Only requiring the GM for the final interviews.
“I can’t find anyone”
Unfortunately, a job ad won’t always result in your ideal candidate applying. For example, a large community based organisation we came to work with, had done all the right things, and run a great job ad for a specialised position, but had no applicants worth considering. Through our established networks we were quickly able to identify the industries the likely candidate would be found, and within 24-hours had the business speaking with a suitably skilled person.
“I hired the wrong person”
A local builder had just hired a new salesperson, but had to let them go after only one month because it wasn’t working out. We were able to identify that their interview process had focussed on the wrong aspects of the role – actually being able to sell. The person they hired had great customer service experience, but lacked the confidence and sales experience to close a deal. By understanding this, we were quickly able to find the right candidate.
