Why use a recruitment agency?

There's a lot of good reasons to use a recruitment agency or a headhunter, but it's important to understand when it's the right choice – and which agency is right for you. At Hays, we're experts in specialist recruitment. That means we're specialised in recruiting employees and freelancers, who are specialists within their own respective areas. We'll find the candidates who are hard to find, screen them to ensure that they're the right match for your organisation and offer our expertise, guidance and market knowledge throughout the whole process.


Advantages of using a recruitment agency:

A quicker and more effective process

Recruitment is the core of our business – we have more resources and experience than almost any Talent Acquisition or HR department, we have specialised consultants within your specific area, and we have a large, global network of candidates. But a recruitment agency does not need to be an alternative to your own TA department; conversely, it's an excellent tool for the positions which are niche or hard to fill.

High quality of candidates and time saving

We spend most of our time screening candidates to understand their profile and where they could be a good fit. We make sure that you only have to spend time on candidates which are qualified for your open positions – allowing you to cut out several steps from your recruitment proces and save time on reading applications and doing administrative work. We don't just sit and wait around for the right candidates. We go find them for you. 

Knowledge of the market and salary levels

We know the employment market, your industry and the salary levels. We can advise you on whether it's realistic to find the right candidates within your salary range, and if not, where we can adjust the requirement profile to find a suitable match.

Specialists within your area

We only work within a limited number of specialist areas and industries. This means that we know the market and candidates really well. And we believe in a interdisciplinary approach; if you're looking for a Marketing Manager for a pharmaceutical company, our Life Science and Sales & Marketing departments will work together to solve the job. 

It's rare for your internal recruiters to have the right specialist knowledge of all the positions within your organisation, or be able to compete with a recruitment agency on the scope of their candidate database within your industry. 

Consulting on your workforce planning

We can offer you assistance with both your short-term and long-term recruitment strategies, as well as how to compose your workforce for optimal strategic value. We also offer solutions such as RPOs and MSPs, where we take over parts of or your entire recruitment process for permanent hires and contingent workforce. 

A brief conclusion: You should use a recruitment agency when you cannot afford to wait for the right candidate to stumble upon your organisation. It's expensive to have unfilled positions, and it's expensive to recruit the wrong person. Our recruitment consultants can help uncover your needs, find the right candidates and advise you on the right workforce solutions.
