The key stakeholders (those that have skin in the game) need to work together to make the placement successful. Some of the criticism HR people receive is that they don't have their own "skin in the game."

Most positions can be filled by the HR team; only those positions that are the most difficult to fill make the most sense in using recruiting services. While not seeking to compete with the HR team, the practice of overlapping recruiting efforts is not encouraged and not conducive to a long term business solution. Robert H.
