Cost : Companies believe that recruitment agency fees are artificially high and they will try to increase candidate salaries to boost their own commissions. We Agree! Our fees are fixed and agreed before we start any recruitment assignment.
Value for Money : Companies believe that sometimes not much work goes into finding a suitable candidate. Many believe that agencies simply advertise and search existing databases and word match from job description to CV. We Agree! All of our candidates are interviewed face to face, following behavioural style questioning specific to each position, before presentation to the client.
Clients Carry the Risk : Companies believe that after the initial rebate scheme from an agency they are truly left on their own. Should that person leave immediately after their probation period has ended then they would need to go through the whole process again at full price. We Agree! We offer lifetime guarantees on all of our placed candidates. If they leave for whatever reason within their probation period we replace them free of charge. Should they leave after their probation period our unique LIFETIME guarantees kick in - Contact Us.
Candidate Commitment : Companies believe that agencies will represent candidates to multiple jobs at the same time increasing their chance of successful placement and payment. There is no "clients' best interest at heart". We Agree! All of our candidates will only be represented to one client at a time until that person is either rejected or hired. We also gain authority from each candidate to accept positions on their behalf providing the offer is within their salary guidelines.
Multiple Position Hires : Companies believe that should they wish to hire more than one person into the same role, an agency will simply double the cost of recruitment. We Agree! If you are hiring more than one person into a position then you will benefit from economies of scale. To find two people for the same job is not twice the amount of work!
Recruitment Agencies do not understand my Business : Companies believe that agencies do not understand their business and are only interested in placing a candidate with them and moving on. They do not seem to grasp that culture fit as well as technical job ability are both vital in successfully filling a position. We Agree! We take the time to sit down with hiring managers/HR and take full job specification briefs. We also ask to see offices where possible and understand the type of person who would fit in as well as gaining an understanding for what you currently have in place.
Feedback and Honesty : Companies believe that agencies would rather "shy" away from giving honest feedback on any aspect of the position or candidate. They would rather take a position on in the hope of filling it rather than being upfront and admitting they may not be best placed to assist. We Agree! We will turn business away if we do not feel we will be able to assist rather than building false expectations. We would rather build long term business relationships than short term engagements.
Referencing : Companies believe that agency references are not worth the paper they are written on and if only taking two references what happens if one of those is a "mate"? We Agree! Where possible we will take three references on candidates reducing the risk of "friend" references and one of these references will always be from their current or most recent employer.
