Finding the right talent can be a demanding process, particularly if you are looking for a particular set of skills. Working with a specialist recruiter can help you find the right person for the job with greater ease.
In this month’s blog, we will explore some of the benefits of working with a specialist recruiter to recruit new talent into your business.
A specialist recruiter will have developed effective methods and benchmark, which can enable them to locate the right staff quicker. They will have an in-depth understanding of how skills match up to industry trends and, using their market knowledge, can offer advice on market trends and changes. In short, a specialist recruiter has a clear view of the “bigger picture” to help guide clients through the recruitment process.
Time is Money
Using in-house staff for recruitment purposes can be an incredibly time-consuming task, which will have a cost impact on your business. Working with a specialist recruitment partner will save you both time and money. From helping you to develop a candidate brief through to providing a shortlist of candidates for interview, they will do the hard work for you.
Furthermore, according to research conducted by small business accountant, Accounts and Legal, the average UK employee generates £118,000 of revenue per year for their employer. With this in mind, the longer a vacancy remains open, there is a further cost to your business in the form of lost revenue.
When recruiting, it is not just about finding someone with the right skillset; it is also about finding someone who will be the right fit for your company culture. A specialist recruiter who knows both you and your business will only provide you with candidates that fit perfectly within your team and company culture. Specialist recruiters will also have access to a much broader talent pool, including passive candidates who may not be actively looking for a new job.
Nowadays, it is vitally important that businesses nurture their employer brand. Candidates should be treated like customers, and their recruitment journey should be a positive experience. While larger organisations may have time and budget to spend on their employer brand, smaller businesses tend not to invest in this. Working with a specialist recruiter can help you to market your business to a candidate and communicate key motivators, such as career progression, company culture and benefits. Having a strong employer brand will attract the best talent and help you to retain them.
