Have you ever wondered why recruitment agencies charge so much and yet few are making any money?
I have personally experienced this first hand as a candidate, as a recruiter and as an end client and I can assure my reader that despite the dissatisfaction you most probably feel with these agencies, it is no fun for the recruiter nor the candidate either.
At the root of this problem there are two key issues:
- Recruiters are not expert in the subject area you are recruiting, if they were they would most certainly be doing it, because it usually pays more and is generally quite rewarding, whereas recruitment in the modern environment is none of those things. By the way you won’t find an exception to this rule, it is a widespread and well-known fact that the expertise needed to survive in recruitment is hard nosed direct-sales. Think car salesman, You, then are the buyer and a candidate sadly is the used car. I’ve been there many times.
- Recruiters, for all I said above are weak sales-people whose only USP is that they work on commission only. Surely it must have occurred to you before that this can’t be a healthy and honest working relationship.
If 3, 4, or god-knows how many agents are all combing the same 2, or 3 job-boards for the same role and contacting the same candidates, there is treble, quadruple and much more effort going into it. The only reason they send you different candidates is because of the randomness of their interpretation of the requirement. Hence when they finally make a placement, the cheque has to pay them for all the wasted jobs when they worked hard and didn’t get paid. Do I have to say it, “there are no free lunches“. That’s right and you and the candidate between you share the cost of this wastage not to mention the misplacements.
Try a different approach for once and I am confident you will be pleasantly surprised.
We can advertise for you if you wish and technically screen a handful of prime candidates, or we can work with your agency to screen their candidates, put them on the right track and save you all the mistakes, Give it a try.
