Both clients and candidates put a great deal of trust in the recruiters they hire. After all, consultants make decisions that will have a lasting impact on your future career or business. So what exactly should you seek to ensure a quality recruitment service from the professionals you hire?
Specialist recruitment consultants are becoming increasingly essential in helping companies fulfil their long-term business goals. In finding suitable candidates for permanent and temporary positions, expert agencies are able to offer great value to clients, augmenting the capabilities, proficiency and reputation of a business.
With a growing number of businesses relying on qualified consultants to find the right staff, thus saving them time and money, the demand for specialised recruitment consultants is steadily increasing.
In fact earlier this year, the news spotlight was focused on how recruiting the wrong person can have a detrimental effect on a business. With stories of ineffectual employees withering the productivity and reputation of a company hitting the headlines, the demand for quality recruitment consultants has never been so high.
A Professional Attitude
It is important that employment consultants remain professional. Like in many business situations, it is tempting for consultants to make the mistake of trying to befriend a potential contractor. Without focusing on their best business and meeting skills, it is likely the consultant could lose respect and as a result, fail to get the contract signed.
Be Prepared for Hard Work
There are no two ways about it, a quality and successful recruitment consultant works long, hard hours. This is especially relevant when starting out, as they will need to dedicate a lot of time researching, contacting and arranging appointments with potential candidates.
Once the consultant has developed a comprehensive contact, they can dedicate the time focusing on servicing valuable clients.
A Partnership Model
A quality recruitment consultant should act as a ‘recruitment partner’ to clients. This partnership model should include offering assistance with current market values and making sure the best candidates are attracted to the role. This effectual model should include providing relevant industry expertise, on-going advice and the streamlining of candidates so that time is not wasted internally.
Rigorous Candidate Vetting
As mentioned above, hiring the wrong person for the job can cost a business a lot of time and money. Specialist recruitment agencies pride themselves on finding top calibre candidates, who will contribute to a business’s success. To secure and retain a solid reputation in sourcing the best employees in the marketplace, it is imperative recruitment consultants undertake independent, specialist vetting and checking of candidates.
Companies with specific or difficult work requirements will need to work closely with the recruitment agency to ensure the consultant understands exactly what they are looking for in a candidate.
Goal-Driven and Target Orientated
The recruitment sector is a goal-driven industry. Successful employment consultants adhere to the driven and target-orientated practices the industry demands. To succeed and be regarded as the best in this competitive field, a strong work ethic is essential as in order to get the necessary results, maximum effort and commitment are required.
