7 advantages of using a recruitment agency

We all know 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, few people realise all the other benefits! 

Did you know that partnering with specialist recruiters can be highly beneficial not only to hiring managers but to your company as a whole?

Here are seven advantages you can expect if you seek expert advice and services from a recruitment company. 

Advantage #1: Faster hiring 

Using a recruitment agency will shorten the time it takes to fill your open positions. We can find candidates much faster than you can.  

With a vast talent pool in our database, a network of connections to leverage, and access to expensive systems that help us locate people with those hard-to-find skills, our specialist recruiters source your dream candidates in half the time. 

What’s more, this means that the only candidates a recruitment agency submits for your review are ones that fit your expectations and executive search criteria. All of this helps shorten your hiring time

Advantage #2: High-quality candidates 

Using a recruitment agency increases your ability to meet high-quality candidates with the relevant skills and expertise in your sector.

We have access to a large talent pool of pre-screened and referenced STEM professionals. This means that you will only be meeting with candidates who have already been carefully assessed and interviewed. 

As a recruitment agency, we deal with candidates daily, and we are experts at screening, interviewing, and analysing the suitability of applicants for various roles.

We can also provide businesses with consultancy and recruitment support services, providing specialist advice and assistance to ensure your interview process runs smoothly.  

Through best-practice methods, we understand both our candidate’s needs and your requirements to make a great match. 

Advantage #3: Specialist recruitment knowledge 

As your business grows and changes, your in-house recruiters may need to conduct complex interviews for a range of positions they are not necessarily familiar with. 

Agencies have staff specialising in a dedicated sector or vertical. As a result, we often have a better knowledge of technical jobs and the skills needed for them.

We also have the expertise to spot transferable skills relevant to your job opening that others in your company may miss. 

At Airswift, we have teams of recruiters dedicated to a range of disciplines pertaining to the construction, oil & gas, renewable energy, chemicals, mining, technology, and power industries. Our depth of knowledge and expertise makes fulfilling your latest jobs a breeze. 

Advantage #4: They have experienced the challenges slowing your growth

At Airswift, people are at the heart of everything we do and employee care is our speciality.  With over 60 offices globally and operations in 130 countries, we know people and their needs. 

We specialise in handling the toughest immigration challenges, logistical hardships, and complex employment laws. It’s what we do. Let us share our experiences and support your growing needs where you need it most.

Advantage #5: Knowledge of the market 

Through their conversations with clients and candidates, the best recruiters gain a lot of knowledge about the sector they work in. They are often able to provide you with valuable insight and sage advice. This is a crucial part of their job. 

When you use a recruitment agency, you gain access to their knowledge of salary rates, available skill sets, career development expectations, contract support, current hiring complexities, and even market trends in your sector, which you may otherwise have never known about. 

Advantage #6: Extended reach 

Not all the best candidates are actively looking for a new job. A recruiter company calls those candidates ‘passive talent’, and they take a little longer to find. 

There is a strong possibility our recruiters know who those people are, how to contact them, and more importantly, how to incentivise them to make a move – another benefit to working with a recruitment agency. 

Advantage #7: This is what we do! 

The most significant advantage of working with a recruitment agency is that this is what we do! 

We write compelling job ads to maximise the number of people who apply. We quickly and effectively screen applicants to find the strongest candidates early on in the hiring process.  

But most importantly, our team works day in and day out to meet your hiring needs. Our main goal is to find you top-tier talent whose dream job is to work for your business.
