6 Reasons Why You Should Use a Recruitment Agency in 2020.
If you’re looking for work this year, why not use the help of a recruiter or a recruitment agency? After all, it’s their job. You wouldn’t deny an ice-cream man from serving ice-cream or stop a lollipop lady from helping children cross the road. So, why not let them help you to find work?
Still not convinced? Ok, here’s 6 reasons why you should use a recruitment agency in 2020.
No matter if you’re an individual looking for work, or a business looking to fill a position or two, you’re going to want to stick around. There’s something on this list for you.
For the Individual.
They Save You Time… and Time is Money.
This is one of the best reasons why you should be looking at using a recruitment agency this year.
Let’s be real, it can be unbelievably frustrating applying for jobs these days. No, not because there aren’t jobs out there, because there are. Not because businesses aren’t saying yes to your application… ok maybe partly because of this. But this isn’t what we’re highlighting here.
So, why is it frustrating applying for jobs on your own in 2020? Because of the infuriating nature of applying online.
We’ve all been there. Asking in store about a vacancy, only to be told we “have to apply online”. And applying online itself can be so tedious. We’re not joking when we say we’ve seen websites that require you to fill in individual boxes for every piece of experience and qualification you have, only to also have to upload your entire CV at the end anyway. What is the point?
With a recruiter or recruitment agency, they can do the legwork for you. By giving your details to them, they’ll find a role or position that best suits your skillset and abilities. Saving you time, hassle, and stress.
Seeing as we’ve already highlighted that this is one of the best reasons, some of you may already be convinced, and want the help of a recruitment agency. If you do, click here. If you’re not convinced, be sure to read on.
They’re a Source of Jobs.
It probably won’t surprise you to know that job recruiters are often a source of job vacancies. But what you might not know is why this is the case.
Companies and businesses will often approach recruiters and recruitment agencies asking them to find someone for a specific role. With a recruiter as a middleman, it’ll save you unnecessary hassle. We’ve all been there. When you upload your CV to a job-search site, and the algorithm is all off. “You’ve got experience in waste disposal, perhaps you should apply for this teaching role?”. Ridiculous.
Let the recruiters be the ones to play matchmakers between the client and the business. It works out best for all parties involved that way.
They Can Interview Potential Clients.
If you’re a start-up business, you may find it difficult making the time to interview potential new employees yourself. However, you also probably don’t have a dedicated recruitment department. You wouldn’t be the only one, even many bigger companies don’t have their own.
So, isn’t it lucky that recruitment agencies and recruiters can interview the clients for you?
At times, certain recruitment agencies will be able to perform a job interview for you. Saving you the time and resources you’d spend in doing it yourself. Of course, not every agency or recruiter offers this, so it’s always best to check before committing. However, any that do offer this service will be a huge asset to your business and will help you to fill any open job positions you have this year.
Helps Maintain a Professional Appearance.
I know, I know. I know you’re thinking “but you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover?” and you’re right. But the bottom line is that people will, especially if it’s something that will be representing your business. Like a misspelled job vacancy advert, a misplaced advert, or any type of discrepancy. Sadly, accidentally having one of these can seriously harm your chances of the perfect candidate applying for the position.
But, once again, recruiters and recruitment agencies come to the rescue.
As specialists and professionals, their job is to fill the positions your business may have available. This includes finding the most relevant, qualified, and suitable candidates for the position. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about adverts, advertisement placement, candidate vetting, or anything else.
Provide your recruitment specialists with the position details, along with details of the type of candidate you want for the position. And whoosh. Off they go. So, save the potential embarrassment of putting an incorrect advert out there. If you’re looking to hire new employees this year, get in contact with professionals.
There’s Always a Recruiter for You.
No matter if you’re an individual or a business, qualified or unqualified, recruiting for several positions or just one, there’s a recruiter or agency out there for you.
Recruitment is a huge industry, and it’s going to continue growing throughout 2020. Which is good for everyone involved. It’s good for recruiters because the competition is healthy. It’s also good for users of recruitment agencies as, not only are there more and more options, but there are becoming more and more specialist recruiters. From industry specialists and placement specialists to agencies dedicated to newly qualified workers, there’s something for everyone.
Remember, a recruiter’s job is to find the most suitable candidate for the position. So, if it’s not their area of expertise (and they’re good at their job), they’ll tell you so. After all, where’s the sense in incorrectly placing someone into a job role, when it could result in losing both the individual and the business as clients?
