These days business is booming. Sure, there have been setbacks, but overall the world is creating wealth like never before as companies adapt to new technologies and business paradigms. There is a wealth of opportunity for anyone with the right products and services to fill new niches and expand into markets that didn’t even exist just a decade ago!
If you have a company that’s just taking off you are going to need to get the best possible people on board, and fast! There is a huge amount of competition to attract talent, and your company doesn’t want to be stuck with the leftovers once the cream of the crop has all found positions elsewhere! So, what can you do about it? The best solution is to seek the services of a professional recruitment agency. Say you need to fill an extremely important position like National Account Executive, and you need to do it fast! Ring up your local recruitment agency and chances are they will have a qualified candidate waiting and ready to go for you!
Let’s take a moment to define just what a recruitment agency is, and can do for you. Their business is to help your business locate the best possible people to hire. They do all the preliminary legwork of hiring new talent for you by screening, sourcing, and then recruiting viable candidates to form a pool of qualified job seekers. Then, from that pool, they can then recommend suitable candidates to companies seeking new hires. There are some agencies that specialise in only one or two industries and others that offer choices to fill any position out there. Some will only supply an introduction, while others will help you handle the entire hiring process from start to finish, all depending on your needs.
Another example is suppose that your company needs a new financial advisor, a very important position in any business. Sure, you could advertise in the newspaper (do we still have those?) or, yes, online and hopefully the right person will eventually come knocking (maybe), or you could engage the services of a recruitment agency that already has a stable of qualified financial advisers in their pool for you to choose from. With their professional services working on the task you could fill that position in a number of days, maybe even overnight!
Here are some more benefits of obtaining the services of a recruitment agency:
Utilize industry experts – agencies have acquired extensive experience and expertise with your industry, and can use that to find the best candidates for you.
Flexibility – Say you just need someone part-time or want to try someone temporarily. No problem, they will make that happen for you.
Fill Challenging Roles – You need a hard-to-find expert. Chances are they have one!
The Australian Department of Employment and Workplace Relations is another excellent resource for both employees and employers. We hope this helps you to recruit the best people for your company’s open positions!
