How using a recruitment agency is beneficial for your business?

How much time does your business spend on the recruitment process, from attracting talent, screening applicants, interviewing, and conducting reference checks?

Research suggests that the average hiring process takes 42 days, which is a substantial loss of time and productivity spent on rummaging and exhausting every application, trying to find the right candidate for you.

A recruitment agency’s job is to help you in your recruitment journey. We take the searching, screening, interviewing, and reference checking out of the recruitment process for you, ensuring you only need to focus on the recruitment planning and onboarding of successful candidates.

Here are Save Our Service’s 5 reasons why an experienced childcare recruitment agency may be right for you:

Advantage Point #1 – Market Knowledge

Recruiters know their market. They understand that the child-care sector is a highly competitive market. They utilise their industry knowledge to set career expectations, identify skill sets, and manage hiring complexities. They inform their clients of the market demand and current trends, allowing them to set clear and realistic expectations from the start of the recruitment process.

Advantage Point #2 – They Attract Higher Quality Talent

Recruitment Agencies have a pool of successfully assessed, screened, and reference-checked candidates ready to go. So, if you have a staff member suddenly unavailable, recruitment agencies have numerous casual and temporary candidates with experience available to provide you with emergency relief.

Advantage Point #3 – They Have a Large Reach

A recruiter draws upon their large pool of candidates but are also part of a broader network that they can leverage off. This means they can generally find the right people for you in a shorter amount of time.

Advantage Point #4 –Meticulous Matching Process

Recruiters have a meticulous matching process saving you time and loss in productivity. Recruiters make sure they understand your recruitment and ratio needs, even the finer requirements for your ideal candidate, and run this through their talent pool to ensure the candidates they send you match your criteria and, are worth considering based on their skills, qualifications, and experience.

Advantage Point #5 – It‘s their Bread and Butter!

It is their bread and butter! Recruitment Agencies will expertly craft job advertisements that attract the right talent. Their optimised job ads maximise the number of people who apply. Recruiters also rigorously screen each candidate to ensure their skills, qualifications, and experience meet the position’s criteria and your needs. Recruitment Agencies take the recruitment headache away from you and provide you with the talent you need when you need it.
