Recruitment Agencies VS Recruitment Consultants and The Importance Of Knowing The Difference

Recruitment consultants are the same as recruitment agencies, right? Wrong! While both help fill job positions with candidates, recruitment consultants like Adria Solutions, offer an advisory-led service, aimed at benefiting both clients and candidates.

Developing long-lasting relationships with clients and candidates

While recruitment agencies often prioritise quality over quantity, recruitment consultants are committed to building stronger professional relationships with their clients, taking the time to get to know them, their business, their recruitment objectives and developing long-term working relationships.

A recruitment agency approach to staffing is essentially centred on advertising jobs and finding suitable candidates to fill the roles.

Recruitment consultants dig much deeper than merely filling roles, taking the time and making the effort to get to know their clients, the organisation it operates, the company ethos, growth strategies, targets and recruitment objectives.

Only after acquiring such in-depth knowledge does a recruitment consultant start advertising a position to candidates; who they also take the time to get to know, learn about their employment history and understand their career goals and expectations.

With this advance knowledge under their belt, recruitment consultants can be significantly more confident that a client and candidate are suited to each other.

An advisory-led recruitment service

Unlike recruitment agencies that are committed to filling roles quickly, recruitment consultants offer a more advisory-led approach to recruitment.

This advice-driven approach includes informing clients about the suitability of candidates and the integrity of the details held on them.

The in-depth level of guidance includes assessing and responding to the needs of individual clients and providing relevant solutions that are tailored to their needs.

Recruiting the wrong candidate can have a huge impact on the reputation of a company and the individual candidate.

By forming close-knit, long-term bonds with clients and candidates, experienced, reputable recruitment consultants like Adria Solutions use their expertise to give organisations access to a wider pool of the right talent for a specific job.
