Recruitment can be tedious and time-consuming, from job posting on popular boards and forums to scanning resumes, conducting multiple interviews, and shortlisting suitable candidates.
While employees need good talent and skill sets to be part of a company, it is equally true that onboarding the right fit also takes skills and talent, which James Marroun possesses in abundance. Since 2009, his recruitment agency, TLH Recruitment, has connected countless Aussie companies with the best-suited employees.
If you’re stuck in a rut with the recruitment process but still feel indecisive about whether a recruitment agency is worth your time, listed below are food-for-thought reasons.
Recruitment may be a long-drawn, hectic process, but one which recruitment agencies have plenty of experience doing. If you have vacant positions that need to be filled immediately, a reliable recruitment agency can shorten the time window by more than half!
This is mainly because agencies use business intelligence and advanced technology to source candidates. Not only that, but if the agency is like James Marroun’s (with a decade’s experience), it will house a vast talent database and a strong network to locate even those employees with hard-to-find skills.
Don’t worry! Less time taken does not automatically translate into poor talent fit. Quite the opposite because experienced recruitment agencies can connect you with highly qualified candidates, even for a niche role.
Most agencies include only pre-referenced and well-screened candidates. Once you relay your requirements to the agency, they will carefully analyse which candidates meet them and suggest the best fit.
Recruitment agencies come across hundreds of companies and candidates daily. They have a firm grip on the pulse of the job market.
Meaning they will possess solid knowledge about your industry, the market in general, etc., which translates into sage advice. You can gain valuable insights into the current salary rates, contract support, hiring complexities, etc.
One less talked about the complexity of hiring is that not every suitable candidate is actively looking for a job. While you may reach out to those who are active job seekers, what about the aspirants who fall outside this boundary?
For instance – You may have an excellent opportunity for a candidate working in the same capacity for some other company but with a lower salary. To incentivise even such passive candidates, a recruitment agency can help.
Many agencies are already aware of thousands of candidate profiles. They also have the correct contact details. This will help you pick the right fit even from the hands of other companies.
Business growth brings job role segregation, which means more specialised roles. Your in-house recruiting team may need to conduct lengthy and complex interview rounds for positions they are not quite familiar with.
In such cases, it is best to seek help from recruitment agencies because they often house staff for a dedicated vertical. They will find a suitable candidate faster with better knowledge of the needed technical skills.
