The services of good recruitment agencies can save businesses time and money, as well as ensure that job hunters find the right position as quickly as possible. However, recruitment agencies do much more than simply match candidates to vacancies. Most agencies (who are also referred to as Employment Agencies or Job Agencies) focus their efforts on a small number of industries and specific geographic area, so develop genuine expertise in their market. Both employers and people looking for new jobs can expect the consultant they deal with to offer accurate salary advice and have the right contacts in the sector.

There are many benefits to candidates of dealing with recruitment consultants, including saving time and having someone to negotiate their salary package. Agencies also usually have a selection of unadvertised vacancies that job hunters can gain access to when they register. Time is a major motivation for companies to use recruitment agencies, as a consultant will only put forward shortlists of staff with the right skills and experience. As agencies have relationships with a wide range of candidates, including some they have worked with for a number of years, they can also make sure interviewees are a good cultural fit for the organisation. When working on permanent jobs, agencies usually only charge if they fill the vacancy, so this is a low-risk way to recruit workers. Even if they do not earn a fee, agencies will complete the task of informing unsuccessful candidates and pass on feedback from interviews. Employment agencies are also an effective way to fill temporary positions and not only because they can supply experienced, reference-checked staff with the right skills. They can also take care of all payroll issues, including holiday pay.

In short, using a recruitment agency is the right choice for businesses that need to find the best staff and jobseekers who want to secure their ideal position in the shortest possible time.
