Here are five reasons why you should use a recruiter to fill your vacancy.
Niche recruiters who actively participate in conferences and associations in their area of expertise are constantly in touch with both active and passive candidates. They spend the time developing and nurturing those relationships every day so you don’t have to.
Niche recruiters have expertise in their particular recruiting area that you might not have on your staff. They can write job descriptions and conduct in-depth interviews that you don’t have time for. This thorough screening reduces the risk of bad hires, and saves you time from interviewing unqualified candidates
Fast to Fill
Prevent ‘time kills deals’ syndrome by the use of a recruiter to fill your vacancy. Contingency recruiters have a vested interest in keeping the hiring process moving. Candidates don’t become concerned about the lack of response unnecessarily and you have a representative keeping you abreast of the need and timing for decisions from your side of the recruiting process.
Developing a long-term relationship with a niche recruiter can pay off with greater returns than just each individual hire. They know your team’s preferences and company needs. They can even proactively present a special candidate if they become available outside your regular hiring process. Building the best staff in that niche suddenly becomes possible when you use a recruiter to fill your vacancy.
