How recruiters can help you find the best candidates
Posted on Monday, December 11, 2017 by The MSS team — No comments
Recruiting staff at any level can be tricky, and it seems to be the more senior the position, the more difficult the task of finding a more suitable candidate becomes. This is largely because the talent you really want is already in the market, rather than on the market. But that doesn’t mean the talent isn’t there – it’s just a case of knowing how to find it.
We recruiters call this the ‘hidden market’ of passive job seekers, the question is how do you access it? That’s where specialists such as us, really come into our own.
Our role is to help you find the right people for the roles you need to fill, where you need them and when you need them. Granted, this is easier said than done, but there are a number of tools in the recruiter’s armoury that we use to secure the talent you’re looking for.
Firstly, because we deal with a plethora of open roles on a daily basis, we know the difference between having a good job description and a fantastic one, and we know the impact this makes on the quality of your next hire. We can help you to identify exactly what type of candidate you need and write appealing job descriptions that will not only help to sell you as an employer of choice, they will better appeal to the very people you want to attract.
We also have hundreds of job seekers on our data base which contains the details of a wealth of talent across a range of areas and at all levels. This opens you up to larger pool of candidates, including those that may not otherwise have seen, or shown interest in your particular job role.
But, we don’t just look within our existing, network – we go beyond it. In most instances, the people we can connect you with will be unaware of the role you are recruiting for, it is our job to ‘sell’ your role to them, at times prising them from their current position.
In addition to sourcing candidates, recruiters help hiring managers by handling the initial application stages and vetting and interviewing those candidates who will be suitable for the role, before you, the employer, get to see them. This enables hiring managers to skip the first stage of the hiring process and save a phenomenal amount of time.
The cost of a bad hire can have considerable implications for your organisation, using up valuable time and money, and even costing you your competitive edge in the market. That’s why it is important to choose your recruitment partner with care. Get it right, and you gain an invaluable asset who can make a direct contribution to its bottom line.
