Choosing the right recruitment agency for you
Working in the construction industry, where the need for quality staff is growing and the number of skilled workers is shrinking, recruitment agencies are playing a vital role. Love them or Loath them, recruitment agencies are key to the growth of your business.
If you require staff to work for your company, but you do not have the time or resources to find the perfect candidate, then a recruitment agency will be required and choosing the right one can be a hard decision.
Choosing the right recruitment agency will be the difference between receiving quality or unsuitable candidates. You will need to make sure to find one that will take a proactive headhunt approach and not just sift through job boards.
Most recruitment agencies will claim to be the best at what they do and understand the industry they are working in, but only a few actually do. It is key that when you select a recruitment consultancy, you test their knowledge so that you can be reassured that they do know what you are looking for.
The same goes for candidates. Choosing the right recruitment agency to represent you will be the key to how you are presented to a client. A lot of agencies will get your CV and shoot it across to every contractor they can think of, only a few will actually take the time to understand what you are looking for in your next career move. At Edge Careers, we aim to meet with every candidate to build a profile on exactly what you are looking for and we will agree a target list of companies that we will put your details forward to.
It is important that as a candidate you agree a list of target companies so that you can keep track of where your CV has gone. A company receiving your CV multiple times will devalue your position as a candidate.
A good recruitment agency will stay with you through the whole process to offer guidance and assistance, sticking with you after you have started your new job to make sure you are happy with the company you have moved to.
