How to choose the best recruitment agency for your needs

Operations manager Kylee Russon writes: Whether you are leading a large company and need to recruit staff quickly, or a one-man operation deliberating the pros and cons of taking on an employee, there are many things to consider.

But the first thing you should do is involve an experienced HR professional in any recruitment process because it’s key to making sure you adhere to the law.

Avoid problems down the line by ensuring everything is done correctly from the start.

Recruitment agencies understand employment law and can manage as much or as little of the process as a business requires.

Choosing the best recruitment agency for your needs

If you are time-poor, worried about getting it wrong, or just don’t know where to start, get in touch with a reputable recruitment agency today.

Like anything, it is important to shop around when choosing which agency to work with. Larger organisations may offer a broader range of services, but a smaller agency specialising in a specific sector could benefit your particular needs more.

Recruitment firms operating on a national level may have a wider reach to fill a job role, but they do not know the demographic of your area as well as a local organisation does.

A recruitment consultant will be able to help you explore your options in regards to hiring permanent staff, temporary workers, part-time employees, or executive level board members.

A few things to remember

• A recruitment agency will ensure that the employer and employee are looked after properly

• If you are hiring someone on a temporary to permanent basis the agency will be able to guide you with regards to holiday pay, sick leave entitlement and applicable hourly rates

• You may have collected quotes from a number of agencies but don’t automatically assume the cheapest quote is the best. Higher prices can reflect an agency that looks after their clients and temporary workers in a better manner.
