5 Reasons to Use a Recruitment Agency for Your Next Hire

Now more than ever, the competition to hire qualified talent may feel overwhelming.  When your company needs to find new employees, you can’t afford to waste time or money. From writing the job vacancy, to sourcing candidates, coordinating interviews, negotiating offers, onboarding and training, hiring a new employee can prove quite the process.  Luckily, there’s another way.

While most hiring managers employ in-house talent acquisition or human resources to solve their talent needs, utilising a recruiting firm can often quicken and streamline the process, while gaining access to higher quality candidates.

Still unsure if you should consider outsourcing your next hire? We’ve outlined the top 5 reasons to use a recruiting firm below:

  1. Hire Quickly
  2. Gain Access to Qualified Candidates
  3. Save Money
  4. Streamline Recruitment Process
  5. Improve Employee Retention


Hire Quickly

When a hiring team posts a job vacancy online, and hopes the right candidate stumbles upon the opening, this typically results in hundreds of CV submissions, very few of them being the right fit.  Sifting and sorting through these unqualified or mismatched CVs can result in hours wasted. Not to mention the time spent technically screening, organising interview diaries, and offer negotiations.

While in-house talent teams can work efficiently, recruiting firms like Insight Global carry mass amounts of recruiters, all with personal networks of candidates in local markets.  On any given day, a recruiter may speak with 20 job seekers.  With 3,000 full-time recruiters, that is near 60,000 screening conversations happening daily. This allows the candidate identification and screening process to be reduced to often 24-48 hours upon vacancy intake.

Gain Access to Qualified Candidates

You don’t need more CVs, you need the right CVs.

With companies needing vacancies filled, combined with a tight labour market, the competition for qualified candidates has never been more competitive.  Oftentimes, the most skilled workers are not even actively searching for new opportunities.  Those “passively” in the market can be more difficult to reach, and advertise vacancies to. So how does an employer attract the best talent?

Recruitment agencies often deal with hundreds of vacancies a day.  This insight allows them to know how to make an open vacancy stand out among the rest. When you work with a recruiting firm, they can write, or re-write your vacancy description in a way that will entice top talent to apply. They also steer away from common pitfalls that make openings look less attractive.

A great recruiting firm takes the time to get to know your company and its specific needs. A dedicated hiring partner works to understand not just the technical requirements of a role, but the team culture and dynamic. This type of qualification and culture matching cannot be achieved by blind sourcing candidates online. When these types of qualifications are being screened on the forefront, it saves time ensuring only those that meet these expectations are being sent to the next interview step, saving the hiring team time.

Save Money

Where and how you advertise your vacancy plays a critical role in attracting the right candidates to apply. The way a role is presented and where it is placed will determine the types of job seekers who are interested enough to submit their CV.

Advertising on job boards can be expensive, and the best talent is often spread across various platforms.  Most recruiting firms have relationships with sourcing platforms that allow them to post and promote your unique opening across various job boards.  This ensures your vacancy is given the best opportunity to be seen by the most (and right) eyes.

Streamline Hiring Process

When job seekers are actively in the market, they are usually applying to, and fielding multiple opportunities at once.  Therefore, efficiency in the hiring process is essential to ensure candidates are engaged throughout, and eventually accept an offer and have a successful onboarding experience.

Working with one point of contact through a recruitment firm, who keeps the candidate up to date and is their personal liaison to coordinate their candidacy, helps prevent attrition throughout the hiring process.  For the hiring team, relying on one partner to organise and prioritise those interviewing helps to keep the process efficient and structured.

Firms like Insight Global also handle the offer negotiations, and determinations around inside or outside IR35 classification, and assist the job seekers with selecting umbrella companies for benefit resources.

Improve Employee Retention

While hiring the right talent is crucial, retaining those employees matters even more.  When a worker begins a new career, they need to feel supported and taken care of in their new work environment. With consistent communication and check points, recruiting firms assure employee’s expectations are being met in their new workplace.

Throughout their working tenure, Insight Global maintains a close relationship with the employees to support them through career development, and vocational advancement through trainings or certifications, they may look to pursue.

Losing an employee can cost a company a lot of money, and further impact the working culture.  A recruiting partner can help employees feel secure and satisfied in their professional lives.
