  6. 6. What should you look for in a Recruitment Agency?A recent survey concluded that 89% of Hiring Managers are unsure whether they are working with the most suitable recruitmentcompany for their recruitment needs, 64% are not confident that their recruitment partner was promoting their business positivelyand 75% are concerned that their recruitment agency did not have access to the best candidates available in the market place.(Vanilla Recruitment)Whether an Employer or a Candidate, you should consider the following -A good Agency will have met with the client to fully understand their needs and become fully conversant with the company’s cultureand any outstanding issuesThe Agency should interview every shortlisted candidate to ensure that only suitably qualified candidates are submitted and whowill fit in with the with the company culture. Clients should only receive 3/4 profiles of candidates who meet their criteria and not alarge number of candidate profiles, many of whom would be unsuitable for the roleAgencies who understand the business will attract the best people, filter unsuitable applications and submit only a limited numberof suitable candidatesThe Agency must have credibility with job seekers, who otherwise won’t even consider the position which is advertisedBe confident the Agency specialises in the specific area of expertise of the vacancy or the position being soughtBeware Agencies which play the numbers game, who have not interviewed candidates and have no proper understanding of theclient needsBeware an Agency which sends unsolicited CVs or CVs of candidates who have not been advised that their details have beensubmitted. Both of these actions are unethical and illegal, contravening Employment Law and Data Protection.Consider how the Recruitment Agency reflects on your business or presents you as a candidateIf a candidate is selected for interview, they should be well prepared by the Agency so at the interview there will be a meaningfuldiscussion about the role, the candidate’s suitability and how they will fit into the company cultureThe Consultant should be contactable, keep both client and candidate advised throughout the process and manage the interviewand appointment process on behalf of both partiesClients are paying for a professional service and should choose a Recruitment Agency for its integrity, for understanding theirbusiness needs and which treats both clients and candidates with respect.Discretion is ensured where the vacancy is sensitive and is not for public consumptionEnsure the Agency will give the client an agreed money back guarantee if the candidate leaves within an agreed periodA good Agency will create long-term relationships with both clients and candidates, some of whom will themselves become clients.A successful partnership is one in which the Agency achieves results for both candidate and client and above all where thesuccessful candidate makes a valuable contribution to the company, has continuous employment and does not leave after a shortperiod of time because he/she was not suited to the role/company
