The Benefits of Partnering with a Specialty Recruitment Agency

Finding the right person to fill a role at the right time can be a difficult and time-consuming process for your business. But joining forces with a speciality recruitment agency has many benefits including expert guidance, time and cost savings, and having a partner that is invested in your success. Overall, joining forces with a specialty recruitment agency can help you to build a talented workforce that can achieve business goals and targets.

Here are six benefits of partnering with a specialty recruitment agency:

1) Expert knowledge of the market

Specialist recruitment agencies should be experts in their industry and the talent market in that industry. This knowledge includes expertise in identifying and engaging with the best talent, understanding market trends, hiring trends, and employee expectations. This knowledge also includes a strong understanding of the salary and benefits required to attract top talent for each role.

2) Assistance with hard-to-fill roles

Certain roles, such as IT roles, often require specific skills and experience. This can mean that the talent pool of qualified candidates in the wider job market is quite small. However, specialist recruiters are capable of sourcing skilled, professional talent from their database of existing candidates and through relationship building with potential candidates. This assistance should allow your business to focus its efforts on selecting the best person for the role rather than spending efforts on filtering out CVs and doing initial screenings for hard to fill roles.

3) Large network of qualified candidates

Real specialist recruitment agencies will have their own community of highly qualified candidates compared to generalist recruiters. These qualified, specialist candidates include those actively seeking new roles, as well as those more passively interested in taking the next step in their career. Access to these candidates, who will often have a long-term relationship with their specialist recruiter, is based on trust built through previous experience. Reaching these candidates might otherwise be difficult for your business through standard job postings and recruiting efforts. This means that a specialist recruitment agency can make the hiring process easier and more efficient enabling you to fill the role faster.

4) Save time

Senior Managers are always involved in recruiting. Their time is expensive and if you start your hiring process from scratch, costs rise quickly often without success. Specialty recruiters have a highly targeted group of candidates that they can contact regarding your job opening immediately in order to present a short list of highly qualified candidates ready for interview. This time savings allows your HR Team and hiring managers to focus on other work within the business while not adding to their workloads and stress.

5) Avoid hiring mistakes

Hiring the wrong person is expensive. It costs time and money in further recruiting efforts; plus, poor performance can be contagious, and turnover can lower morale. Specialist recruitment agencies can help you avoid hiring mistakes because recruiters spend extensive time and effort to ensure that all candidates put forward for roles are well suited to the job and will be a good fit with your company culture. This is accomplished by working with you to fully understand your job brief, benchmarking your salary and benefits package, and fully screening candidates before connecting you with them.

6) Partner providing personalised recruitment service

Finally, specialist recruiters offer a personalised service for your business and hiring needs. Dedicated consultants will work with you to understand your hiring needs and what you are looking for in the ideal candidate. This ensures that your recruitment process is efficient and effective.
