Jobhop Jobhop's blog : 5 Reasons To Get a Recruitment Partner
As your business grows the need for talent grows, and you have a decision to make, do you recruit yourselves or do you outsource?
You might want an internal recruiter and have a big vision for your recruitment department, but if keeping costs to a minimum is what you’re after then a recruitment partner could be a better option.
What does a recruitment partner do?
A good recruitment partner will take the time out to get to know your company, the company culture, your vision and what mission it’s on. They’ll have an interest in your employees and who your ambassadors are, because like attracts like. They should be able to advise you on job adverts, wording, design and the best tactics to take to attract and source great candidates. They will also filter applications, interview, second interview and put forward the best candidates for the role. But that’s not all they will always give the candidates feedback and give them the good news or the bad news if need be. The good news is that you don’t pay a penny, the only time that you’d hand over any money is if and when they find you your ideal candidate! It's quite amazing the amount of work a good recruitment partner is prepared to do without payment, the reason why they do it is because they believe in themselves. A good recruitment partner believes that they are the ones who will be successful in finding you that needle in the haystack, and they usually do.
