Finding The Right Recruitment Consultancy

Finding the right recruitment consultancy to help your business should be a more detailed process than simply typing a search into Google or walking into a high street branch. You need to find one that understands your business and one that would take the time to understand you. This personal touch can make all the difference between a successful and failed recruitment drive.

In this article I will outline some of the key things that you need to consider before contracting a recruitment consultancy to find applicants for positions within your business.

Approach Consultants before you are Ready to Employ Staff

If done correctly, finding a recruitment consultant can be quite a time-consuming process and you therefore don’t want to leave it until you’re desperate for staff. Instead you should be trying to build relationships before you will ever need to utilise them so that when you do have a position available the recruitment consultant that you have chosen will be able to hit the ground running.

By preparing in advance you will be preventing yourself from making the wrong decision and therefore saving yourself a lot of time and money later on down the line.

Finding The Right Recruitment Consultancy

Work with Recruitment Agencies Familiar with your Field

General recruitment agencies can be very beneficial however you will often find that specialist recruitment agencies working within only one or two fields will yield better results and find more relevant candidates for your company to consider. For example, if you’re looking to fill auto technicians jobs, paint sprayer jobs, or bodyshop fitter jobs than it wouldn’t make sense to approach recruitment agencies that specialise in filling administration positions.

Ask for Recommendations

Employing a recruitment agency for your staffing requirements should be no different than employing a member of staff that they recommend to you. There is nothing wrong with asking for recommendations and contacting people that have previously dealt with the agency to get their honest feedback.

Any recruitment agency will be happy to provide you with references for companies that they have previously assisted and you will find that you feel much more comfortable in dealing with them when it does come time to make your first position available.

Ask for Some Sample CV’s within your Industry

Not all recruitment consultants will be willing to share this information with you however it is always worth asking because if this information is shared you will be able to get a much better gauge of the quality of applicants that the consultancy deals with. Some agencies will choose to provide you with this information and will simply remove the contact details from the top of the CV’s for security and privacy purposes.

Visit the Agency

When you start discussing the services that a recruitment agency can offer you they will often suggest coming to visit you in your office however it is a good idea for you to visit them instead.

By visiting their office you will gain a feeling and understanding about how they work and about the key people that would be working on your account. You will also be able to see if their company is run professionally and if the way that they operate is in line with what you would expect.

The above are just some of the things you should be considering, however, I would strongly advise that you sit down with a pen and notepad, and make a list of everything that you would like to know before approaching any agencies. Being thorough in this situation is not something that you will ever regret.
