There is no doubt that if you want to fill your vacancies with the cream of the candidate crop, it’s a great idea to use a recruitment agency in Ulverston in order to help you do it. However, even the very best recruitment agents need a little help from you in order to do a great job for you. So what should you do to ensure you help your recruitment agent get the best possible results for you and your company? Read on to find out.
Communicate your needs
When you are looking to fill a role you need to be absolutely sure of what you are looking for, and make sure that this is communicated well to the recruitment agency in Ulverston. Take time to write a clear and concise job description, and make a note of the personal skills that you are looking for in your potential employees. The more you know about what it is you are looking for, the easier your recruitment agent will find it to present you with suitable people. Make sure that you give them all of the information, and take the time to sit down with them and brief them on your needs.
It’s important to remain realistic when looking for staff; nobody will be absolutely perfect. Be particularly realistic if the salary isn’t too high for the role and adjust your expectations accordingly. You will find that your recruitment agency in Ulverston is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to hiring staff so listen to their advice and ask their opinion on the package that you are offering – is it in line with similar employers?
Keep in touch
The recruitment process can often span weeks or even months, so it’s important that you make yourself available for regular catch-ups so that you can keep abreast of the current situation. A weekly phone call should be enough to ensure that you stay in touch. Be sure to feedback on any interviews that you have conducted and let the recruitment agency in Ulverston know if you think that they are not quite right. Equally, when you are going through CVs, let your agent know of any that are clear ‘nos’ so that they know to weed out similar applicants in the future.
Working with a recruitment agent is a two-way process and once you establish a good working relationship you can expect to benefit hugely from their knowledge and experience. To speak to one of our recruitment agents contact us at Recruitment Cumbria today.
