The Benefits of using a Recruitment Agency for your Hiring Needs.

With a demand for high quality good candidates on the increase, it’s becoming more difficult for businesses to source candidates with the right cultural fit and experience for vacancies. According to Glassdoor, top candidates are available on average for 10 days when seeking new opportunities and 47% of small businesses are unable to find qualified candidates for their open vacancies.

A recent Glassdoor survey, recognised the factors that impacted recruitment solutions in 2017 were employee branding, employee engagement, social recruiting, transparency and the number of millennials in the workforce. It has been estimated that by 2030, millennials will make up 75% of the workforce. But with 46% of these left their last jobs due to lack of career progression and growth in 2017, it is fair to say that the young professionals are looking for more when considering a job.

“It's making it more difficult for businesses to find people who are right for the job. Top candidates are available on average for 10 days when seeking new opportuntities with 47% of businesses unable to find qualified candidates to fill their open vacancies. “

Offer honest advice:

According to Glassdoor, there are 5 keys factors that employees will consider before the accept a job offer;

o   Salary and package

o   Opportunities for grow their career

o   Work life balance

o   Location and commuting time

o   Company culture

By mapping the market, we can provide you with analysis of the average salaries provided with other businesses within the industry to ensure that you are offering a competitive salary compared to your competitors.

The main bug bear for many companies is the fee from the agency. Typically this is a percentage of the employee’s new salary. Although this can be high in some cases, it’s worth thinking about the amount of your time that will be saved, and the quality of the candidates that will be presented to you. From this, you can then weigh up if you decide this is worth going forward with.
