Cost Effective Recruitment Outsourcing

Your sales growth acceleration plan is in place and your team’s performance has peaked.  Unanswered leads are accumulating, tenders are falling behind and motivation is starting to slump.

It is clear that you need more resource, but hiring the right staff is tricky and time-consuming and you don't want to lose focus on your business goals.  

To help you our experts have put together this short list on cost-effective recruitment.

Budget approval
Get budget approval prior to engaging your preferred suppliers who are paid on a success-only basis.
Negotiate exclusivity
A single reliable recruitment company working on a role for an agreed time will work flat out to secure you the best candidates and they may even give you a reduced rate!
Job descriptions
Including your selected recruiter in discussions with the hiring manager, HR and Line Managers.  The resulting job description should help sell the role and your recruiter will know exactly the best fitting personality.
Agree a response time for managing incoming CVs and confer with your chosen recruitment provider about the candidates within that time frame.  The more skilled the candidate profile, the shorter that feedback period should be to avoid missing out on them.
Interview schedules
Give your timeframe structure.  Let your chosen recruitment provider have tentative interview dates when first engaging them.  This targets the recruiter and shows the candidates that you are serious about the role.
Gather market intelligence
Take advantage of this opportunity to quiz your recruiter about the market sector, competitors, candidate attraction and even how your brand is perceived.  Market intelligence is part of their job.
