5 Reasons To Work With A Recruitment Agency

It is commonly known that the basic purpose of a recruitment agency is to help job seekers find new roles, while helping companies find the perfect person for their open positions. Unfortunately, very few people realise all the other benefits that come with using a recruitment agency.

Many companies struggle to find the right fit for their organization. In fact, according to Glassdoor, 48 percent of small businesses say there are few or no qualified candidates for the positions they are looking to fill. Even when you do find someone to hire, that person may not completely satisfy your company’s needs – which ends up costing you extra money.

Here at Live Assets | IT Staffing Solutions, we’re breaking down five reasons why you should work with a Recruitment Agency.


Reason #1 – Extended Reach For The Best Talent

A recruitment agency will have access to the best talent available; this includes access to candidates that are actively seeking work, as well as talent that is currently employed elsewhere.

If you use a recruitment agency, you’re statistically more likely to access the best job-seekers on the market; candidates who are actively looking for a new job position are more likely to register with a recruitment agency due to their efficiency. Most agencies will position job vacancy adverts on a range of job boards, understanding the logistics and marketing value behind using each one – invaluable knowledge that can only be accessed from working in the recruitment sector.

Finding the right candidates can sometimes be difficult, simply because they can be hard to find. If candidates don’t position themselves as ‘actively seeking a job’ then they are most likely to have a trusted, specialist recruiter who commits to job applications on their behalf – that’s access to a ‘talent pool’ that may be unreachable otherwise.

Recruitment agencies have many networks – each consultant has the potential to leverage their networks to help connect you to the right people.

We have a database of 17.000+ candidates within the GTA area, and all the right avenues to find the Best Fit got your organization.


Reason #2 – You’ll Save Valuable Time

Between writing a good job description, sorting through resumes and interviewing, getting someone new on your team can be a huge time investment – an average of 23 days total, according to a report by Glassdoor. But when you have a full-time job of your own, you may not have the bandwidth to make hiring a priority, which means it could take even longer.

It’s easy to put off hiring or to be lazy about choosing someone, but hiring is an important process that can’t be neglected. You need someone who can be solely dedicated to finding the right person, and a staffing agency can do that for you.

The agency does the hard work of searching for and assessing candidates for the job, so that you don’t have to worry about it. You can focus on reviewing the best candidates presented to you, doing a few interviews and selecting the right person.

We will provide you three resumes, of our top candidates, within 72 hours – along with a fully detailed skills matrix that matches the skills you’re looking for.

Reason #3 – You’ll Save a Lot of Money 

According to a survey by Monster, 70 percent of business owners believe that hiring a recruitment agency is expensive and out of their price range. But the truth is a staffing agency can actually help you save money long-term.

When you hire someone internally, you need to invest in training and dedicate manpower to get them set up. Not to mention you’ll need to start paying them for their time too. And if that person turns out to be a bad hire, costs end up being even higher.

Recruitment agencies help reduce turnover, and in turn, the costs that come with it. They vet candidates before sending them to you to make sure the candidate is the right fit for your team.

Reason #4 – Expertise in the IT market

Often, your IT candidate requirements may be specific and difficult to find; this is where a recruiter’s industry expertise and market knowledge proves to be priceless.

Once you have developed a relationship with a recruitment agency that you trust, your future hiring’s will be easier as the agency will be aware of the qualities that are needed to make the right fit within your business. The best recruitment agencies will act as partners and collaborators, and will be your eyes and ears in the market.

Recruiters are industry specialists in their markets, and can give the hiring team regular insight in to what is happening. These recruiters will know: how to reach out to the best available talent, salary rates, career expectations, current hiring complexities, available skill-sets and shortages. For example, if there is a struggle to find the same quality of candidates in other relevant businesses, then expert recruiters will be able to advise on alternative solutions.

Reason #5 – Additional Services

Staffing agencies conduct background checks on candidates, which is essential when considering potential employees; this can be really time consuming as it involves following up on references, conducting preliminary interviews and making sure the candidate matches what they promise on their CV. Another reason as to why you should use a staffing agency is because a business can feel assured that any candidate you meet has already passed the provisional tests as part of the additional services.

It’s important to consider the additional services provided by a recruitment agency when choosing which to go with, for example: skill-matrix, contract and permanent recruitment, executive search, project support and payroll services are all beneficial facilities provided by the best recruitment agencies.
