5 questions to ask before choosing a recruitment agency

1. What is the agency’s speciality?

Especially when you’re hiring for permanent placement, you should think about how often the firm has filled positions in your industry and what kind of reach their network has. For example, if you’re hiring for a job in the IT industry, the firm should have a database of IT experts and should be tapped into passive candidate networks.

2. Who are the previous company’s clients?

The more experience an agency has with companies similar to yours, the better the chances that you’ll be satisfied with their cooperation.

3. How do their recruiters work?

  • What do they do to pre-screen candidates?
  • How do they find the best candidates?
  • How much time do they need to send you the first CVs?

Good recruiters should know that many great employees are not looking for a new job but are interested in hearing about other opportunities elsewhere. And a good recruiter should try to convince them to try something new.

Remember that you’re choosing people who should convince people to join our company. Therefore, they should be good enough to show people the best sides of your company.

4. How flexible and creative are they?

If you want to work with a company that can move quickly and creatively, you should avoid organizations that get bogged down with inflexible terms.

5. Does the agency provide any references?

If the company has nothing to hide and has good customer reviews, they will be happy to send you references from previous customers. If not, this should message you not to trust this agency. After all, you don’t want to be the guinea pig and lose your time, money and image to an unproven agency that may even discourage people from working for your company.

There are many things to consider when looking for a good recruitment agency. We hope that the steps above will help you make better choices and find an agency that will truly serve your needs.
