Recruiting a new member of staff is one of the biggest decisions a company can make, so it needs to be right. Outsourcing recruitment is still a relatively new concept for a lot of companies with ‘tried and tested’ measures being the prefered option.
But for any business to succeed, it must move with the times. If you’re serious about recruiting the best talent out there, you should definitely be considering outsourcing your recruitment. And here’s our top five reasons of why you shouldn’t be missing out on this boat!

Show me the money
From posting on separate job boards to the time taken to filter through a mountain of CV’s, It goes without saying that recruitment costs eventually add up.
A bad hire from an inexperienced recruiter could also cost the business more than just money. Your reputation is your best asset! Is that something you really want to gamble on?

The show must go on
Recruiting well does unfortunately take a lot of time and dedication. So who is doing your job while you focus is elsewhere? When the BBC recently posted an opening for a and Editorial Assistant at ‘Match of the day’ magazine, they received 600 applications in just 3 days.
Ask yourself, do you really have that much time to dedicate to recruiting? Outsourcing your recruitment leave you to get on with what you do best – running your business!

Quality over quantity
The age old debate. But when it comes to recruitment, quality is king. When you outsource, they will filter out anyone unsuitable so you are just left with the cream of the crop. Sounds good right?

Seek and thou shall find
It’s a recruiter’s job to find the best talent out there. And one of the ways of doing this is to be seen in the right places by the right people. Success for you means success for the recruiter so they will do their best to ensure the job is done right. Everyone’s a winner!

Don’t get left behind
