Reasons why you should use a Recruitment agency

What are the advantages of using an agency?

Believe it or not, employee recruitment as we know it today came about as a product of World War 2, gaps were left in the workplace after men were called to service. After the war had finished, professional job recruiters continued to find work for returning soldiers!

The role of the recruiter in the business world is pivotal. Whatever your opinion or thoughts on recruitment agencies, it is fair to say that we have earned our place on the market, proving ourselves to be useful and in some cases vital to larger companies. 

2020, the year of uncertainty, saw a huge rise in un-employment, which in turn saw job positions receive thousands of applicants from desperate candidates. Businesses were facing a new problem; identifying talent in an overcrowded market. 

In a candidate driven market, specialist recruitment agencies are needed now more than ever!

So what are the advantages of using an agency?

Recruitment agencies save you time, it is our job to sift through job sites and applications so you as a client don’t drown in CV’s. Time ultimately spent better elsewhere.
