Why You Should Stop Using Traditional Agencies and Start Using Online Recruitment Services

When you are looking for a new employee, signing up with a recruitment agency should always be the first thing you do. It saves you the worry of searching for individuals and contacting potential candidates directly. That saves you time and money.

But before you sign up with a traditional recruitment agency, have you taken a look at what online recruitment services can do for you? You might be surprised at the benefits.

Money
Hiring someone is an expensive process, isn’t it? Well, it is if you go down the traditional recruitment route and have to pay an agency thousands of pounds for finding the candidate you want. Or even for not finding the candidate you want. It is a prohibitively expensive way of finding new employees for some businesses, and that can lead to stress and headaches, and the wrong person being hired out of frustration or desperation. Using online recruitment services can change all of those issues and save you a lot of money in the process. Going online costs just a fraction of the price, but gives you a number of excellent candidates to choose from.

Wider Reach
By working with you and for you (rather than for the commission), online recruitment services are all about finding the right candidate for you. A traditional agency has a fairly limited scope when it comes to contacts, and may therefore put forward people are not quite right (but close enough in the agency’s eyes) just to keep you with them. That won’t happen with an online recruitment agency. That’s because we have a much wider reach, and we are able to search all job boards, recruitment databases, Indeed, LinkedIn, and more. So we will be able to find the candidate that is right for the job, not the one that is there right now, but won’t be in a few months when they or you decide they can’t really do what they’re meant to do.

Quicker
When you have a position to fill, you want it done. Over. You want to hire someone in the immediate future, if not sooner, and you don’t want to wait around for a traditional recruitment agency to filter through its contacts in the hopes that there will be someone you can interview. Here is yet another reason to go with online recruitment services instead. Online advertising is much more effective, so we can attract the best candidates. We can also filter them for you, giving you a reduced time to hire. Why is that good? You can get someone employed and started sooner, and they can make you money.

Easy To Use
Finally, online recruitment services are easy to use. You don’t have to try to explain your recruitment wish list over and over again; simply upload the details as we can do the rest. The bonus of that is that your ad goes up faster than if you are using a traditional agency – and that means you get the pick of the crop when it comes to candidates.
