Stoke-on-Trent Recruitment agencies provide an invaluable service to both clients and candidates. In the UK specifically, more and more businesses are choosing to work with employment agencies to fill job vacancies. And, more often than not, these vacancies are usually only available to candidates who are currently signed up with the agency that is advertising the vacancy.
What Types Of Positions Do Recruitment Agencies Fill?
Stoke-on-Trent Recruitment agencies offer three types of employment options to companies – full-time positions, temporary positions and contract-based positions. They are also able to offer a “temp to perm” contract for businesses who are looking to trial candidates over a probationary period before offering a full-time contract. In the UK, temp to perm contracts are becoming more and more popular, as employers don’t have the added risk of hiring somebody on a full-time contract.
What Do Recruitment Agencies Do For Clients?
In short, employment agencies effectively remove all of the hassle associated with advertising, interviewing and sourcing candidates. Once a vacancy has been received by the agency, they typically use multiple advertising avenues, such as job boards to source candidates for the role. Once a select amount of candidates have been sourced, they proceed to conduct telephone & face-to-face interviews, as well as in-house assessments. This allows them to create a targeted short list for clients.
Once a short list has been produced, the employment agency can forward multiple qualified candidates for the position. The result is that a job vacancy is usually filled with a perfect candidate – and the employer hasn’t had to waste any time on advertising and interviewing candidates.
What Do Recruitment Agencies Do For Candidates?
Stoke-on-Trent Recruitment Agencies work with candidates to find them suitable employment opportunities. When a new job vacancy becomes available, they consult their in-house databases to instantly find candidates who match the opportunity – both in terms of experience and qualifications. They can also provide you with good resume templates.
Recruitment Agencies are also able to approach employers for candidates who possess a specific skill set. For example, a talented web developer would be able to approach a recruitment agency with the mind frame of finding a new job. The Stoke-on-Trent agency would then speak with employers and determine if there are any vacancies currently available.
