5 powerful benefits of working with a new recruiter

Posted on 27 February 2023

So, it’s that time of the year, and your recruitment drive is in full swing! But there’s only one glitch – the recruiter you’ve been working with no longer delivers the quality and bang for the buck they once did.

Alternatively, you might find that your usual strategy of utilising the traditional advertising practices on multiple job boards is no longer bringing you the quality of candidates you seek. 

Whichever scenario you’re finding yourself in, now might be a good time to consider scouting for a new recruiter to give your recruitment strategy the boost it needs. 


Five benefits of working with a new recruiter


1. They know the recruitment market like nobody else

Let’s put the most obvious reason first. Finding the ideal candidate for a role is a recruiter’s primary duty. It’s their passion, and they constantly work to improve their skills and knowledge to do their job well. They are specialists in their field!


2. Recruiters have a broader reach of the best candidates

With the time and resources they have, recruiters can find candidates you generally can't. And as you begin to work with a new recruiter, you’ll find that they can bring a broader range of candidates to your attention. Those that would otherwise have gone a miss. They can also reach out to individuals, have conversations and spot every red flag that you may otherwise overlook.


3. Working with the right recruiter is cost-effective

  • loss of time,

  • resources,

  • staff morale,

  • knowledge,

  • and opportunities.


Whether this is your first time or you’ve worked with a recruiter that hasn’t provided you with the quality of candidates you hoped for, considering a new recruiter is beneficial in the long run.


4. Recruiters have tailored processes in place

After gathering all the information, they need from you and with the knowledge of current industry trends, expert recruiters identify suitable approaches and questions. Through rigorous screening processes and in-depth conversations, they filter out and only put forward candidates at the top of their game and prove to be a suitable match for you.


5. They are there with you until the end and beyond

Professional recruitment consultants not only work to find you the ideal candidate, but they also help you prepare for the interview. Ensuring you don’t miss anything crucial. Once you find the one, they will help you make that all-important offer and help you navigate and negotiate a fair deal with their wealth of experience in handling such situations.


We’re not done yet! Most companies think the process is complete once the candidate accepts the offer. In turn, they lose new staff by failing to onboard the new employee correctly and integrate them into the team. The right recruitment consultant can help you rectify this process.
