The most effective way to hire the best staff is to use a great recruitment agency. Job boards, LinkedIn and national media are good ways to find a broad range of potential employees, but to hire the best staff you will need the help of a recruiter. Over 70% of jobseekers have applied for jobs they aren't qualified to do. Amongst other benefits, using a recruitment agency filters out these candidates, who simply don't have the right skills for the job.
1) Access to the best candidates
Recruitment agencies have access to a range of talented job seekers - at Cpl we have a growing database of over one million CVs.
Skilled job seekers don't have time to search job boards. Instead, they use a recruiter they trust. The best recruiters will spot technical ability as well as jobseekers that align with your company values, resulting in a long term successful hire.
1 in 3 jobseekers will change a job within their first year. Find the right candidate using a recruitment agency and avoid this costly statistic.
2) Save time & money
Using a recruitment agency is quicker than hiring internally and will save your business time and money. Recruiters collect and assess CVs, check references and filter talented job seekers using the best interview techniques, so businesses don't have to.
Build a relationship with a recruitment agency. Once a recruiter understands your business and goals they will hire the right people in a timely, cost-effective manner.
3) Industry expertise
A good recruitment agency will offer specialist recruiters for specific industries. Partner with a recruitment agency that understands your industry and they will offer industry-specific knowledge of market trends, salary levelsand the skills required to be successful in your industry. Industry-specific recruiters also have access to skill-specific candidates.
4) Expert recruitment law opinions
Recruitment law is complex and often misunderstood. Common areas of confusion include diversity in the workplace, maternity leave, wages and unfair dismissals.
Recruiters are constantly keeping up to date with recruitment law and will help you avoid legal complications. At Cpl we have a dedicated legal team that works with recruiters and companies to ensure employment law is adhered to during and after the hiring process.
5) Enable business growth & innovation
If you build a relationship with your recruiter, they can help your business grow and strengthen. At Cpl our specialist recruiters work with companies of all sizes, from innovative start-ups to large multinationals, providing recruitment services, training and outsourcing services.
Using a recruitment agency means you find the best talent, and you receive support to maximise your businesses potential. Recruitment agencies don't just provide people, they provide talent and support to help businesses grow.
Whether you're an SME, startup or a multinational corporation, Cpl can help you source and select the right talent through our state of the art database.
