Why a Labour Recruitment Agency Saves Time and Money

Time is Money!

Business stops for no one and the job market is more competitive than ever. Filling roles in your company is vital to ensure business runs smoothly.

Posting to vast amounts of job sites like Indeed and Seek can be tedious. Many hands make for light work, and a recruitment agency is your best shot at streamlining the process of hiring new staff. Working with a labour hire agency is a collaborative arrangement that has your company’s best interests in mind.

Market Knowledge

Recruitment agencies have their finger on the pulse of the job market. Whether you’re looking for a temp or a full-time candidate, they are likely to have suitable and available talent on their hands. The best agencies will act as collaborators and partners, and will act as your eyes and ears in the market.

Agencies have many networks – each consultant, candidate, client or collaborator has the potential to leverage their networks to help connect you to people with a range of skills and experiences.

Selecting Applicants

Some of the problems that arise with pooling your own candidates can easily be fixed with a labour hire agency.

Almost every day, new job search sites are becoming available. Potential candidates are taking advantage of this and sending in multiple resumes across multiple platforms. All job advertisements are in search of applicants that meet the basic requirements of the position. People are often submitting their resume for jobs they aren’t completely qualified for. Using a recruitment agency can help eliminate this issue.

Some candidates are hard to find. They may be passive or selective. There’s a strong chance that a good recruiter will know how to reach them.

Job seekers that have been pre-selected to match all the criteria that you are looking for and are worthy for consideration and interview will be brought to your attention. Agencies have people on file and if their skills match your role, they can immediately be presented to you.

Getting the best candidates right from the start definitely saves time. There’s no need to weed through applications that don’t even meet your basic requirements.

First Day and Beyond

Alongside matching perfect candidates to roles, agencies can help handle paperwork and other formalities. They are able to liaise between employer and employee to make sure everything is in place for an employee’s first day and beyond.

Employee and employer relations can be stronger when formalities are handled by an agency, thus allowing both parties to excel in their roles. You can also avoid staffing as many dedicated HR people, and save money on salaries. Let the focus be on having employees that know how to do the work.
