So you have decided to engage the services of an employment agency, what’s next? To get the most effective outcome, here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative:
Whatever position you are recruiting for, be prepared with all the correct information before speaking with an employment agency. Information such as position title, salary range, position description, ideal candidate etc. Also being able to articulate the company culture to assist the recruiter in finding the overall right fit for your business.
Being Open To Feedback
Employment Consultants have a great deal of industry insight which includes job market trends, appropriate salary range, industry tips etc. Being open to feedback and discussion is vital to finding the right candidate.
The Interview Process
Always have your questions ready to go. Remember that there are questions that you are just not allowed to ask. Employment Agencies are happy to offer advice around this topic if you need it. However, questions about age, marital status, number of children, religion (to name a few) cannot be asked and leave you open to possible legal action.
Know When To Move Quickly
Candidates often interview for more than one role at a time. If you interview a candidate and deem them suitable for the role you are looking to fill, it’s advisable to move quickly. Decide whether you would like to offer them the position or continue with the recruitment process. You do not want to risk losing them to the competition because you have been too busy to get back to them.
