Are you starting to think about your recruitment strategy for 2019? Do you want to work alongside a dedicated recruitment agency but don’t know how to choose the right one? The team at ACS Recruitment have got you covered with our top tips for choosing the right recruitment firm for your business.
Reputation brings results. Does the recruitment firm you are looking into have a good reputation? Do they back up their good reputation with evidence? Does it look like they have loyal clients? A recruitment company that truly has a good reputation will be backed up with testimonials from their clients, whether that be on their website or their social media; do your research on them!
The right recruitment agency for your business should have outstanding customer service. From the moment you initially get in touch with them and throughout your partnership with them, their customer service should be of the highest level. Do they really listen to your recruitment requirements? You should never feel like you’re not involved with how they’re helping with your strategy; everything should be straight forward and you should know exactly what’s going on.
Have you checked whether the recruitment firm you’re looking at has any specialisms in your industry? Don’t waste your time by risking having the wrong candidate placed in the job role due to the recruitment company having a lack of knowledge in the area of work. Many agencies will have specialise in a couple of different industries; research what they are.
This links well with the above point - do they have experience with your specific recruitment requirements? Have they worked with your industry before? Not only this, but in general do they have a lot of experience with recruitment? Are they a well-established recruitment agency?
