The HR sector has been abuzz with talk of the growth of recruitment and with it, the increase in internal recruiters. They may work well for larger corporates however for a start-up or small to medium sized business, it’s usually not viable. This is where a recruitment agency comes in.
People are the most important factor to any business so it is of upmost importance that you hire the right ones. Have you spent hours writing a job advert, with further hours sorting through CV’s that bring no results only for you to re-advertise again? This is a common occurrence within recruiting. Recruitment can be a frustrating and time-consuming exercise.
So what are the benefits of using a sales recruitment agency like FGS Recruitment?
We save you time
Many businesses simply don’t have the time or internal knowledge required to hire the best staff and it’s no secret that the hiring process is time consuming. Keeping your recruitment in house can take you away from the work that you should be focusing on. By outsourcing your recruiting to a recruitment agency, it will save a large amount of time and internal resources leaving you to work on what you’re good at.
We provide an extended reach
It’s a proven fact that approximately 80% of the market is passive and many of these candidates would be off the radar or hard to find for internal recruiting teams. Whilst not actively job searching, passive candidates will often seek out specialist recruitment agencies to keep them updated on opportunities that may arise.
Recruitment agencies will also have access to thousands of candidates who are already on our databases meaning we could find you the perfect candidate sooner rather than later.
We have knowledge of the market
The best recruiters will have their finger on the pulse of their specialist markets and can therefore provide insight to the hiring team on salary expectations, available skill-sets and current hiring complexities. They will act as partners and collaborators and will continue to keep you up to date on market trends.
Lastly, you have nothing to lose. Agencies tend to operate on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis meaning if a suitable candidate is not found then you don’t have to pay. It is however advised against using too many agencies, as it will become difficult to manage the process.
