Recruitment Agencies take the pain and frustration out of employing new staff members. Specialist recruitment agencies like Allstate Recruitment go one step further by providing prospective employees after completing in-depth, industry specific, screening processes.
Save time and money.
A recruitment agency will save you time and money over in-house recruitment. For large organisations, using a recruitment agency can be the best way to access pools of highly skilled workers, including those not actively seeking new employment.
Our top reasons for using an agency:
A recruitment agent can save you days of wasted time sifting through applications, completing background checks and validating references.
The agency will schedule interviews, requiring only that you prepare and turn up.
All administrative issues will be addressed by the agency, including communications with the applicants, notifying unsuccessful ones and providing feedback and verifying candidate information (e.g. qualifications and references)
Your recruiter will collate candidates' queries so that you can address them all at once.
The agency's specialist market insight allows them to advise you on, and negotiate job offers on your behalf, if requested.
They will manage the process smoothly in contrast to in-house staff who may be inexperienced in best practice procedures.
Contract and temporary hire roles can be filled at short notice (as the recruitment agent has access to a vast pool of vetted candidates).
Removes cost of posting job advertisements.
Removes impact on in-house staff allowing them to perform their duties to their usual high standard.
Reduces overtime costs as hiring temporary staff through a recruitment agency is often cheaper than requiring regular staff to work overtime during busy periods.
Reduces the likelihood and cost of a bad hire (e.g. poor performance, training, re-hire).
Reduce future hiring costs by using the same recruitment agency again as the agency will have existing knowledge of your organisation, fast-tracking future processes.
Reduce training costs: some agencies offer candidates the opportunity to up-skill while job hunting, eliminating your organisation's need to do the same once employed.
