Recruitment agency explained: what are they and how do they work?

Recruitment agencies have been around since 1873. The first private recruitment agency was set up by John Gabbitas.

Since then, placement agencies have helped businesses and companies, large or small, find top-notch talent to employ in their workforce.

In order to understand how recruitment agencies can help you, you need to first familiarize yourself with what they are and how they work.

What is a Recruitment agency?

Placement agencies act as a conduit between the company looking for members of staff and aspirants looking for a job post.

They work to simplify the hiring process while providing the clients with the best that they can get.

How do recruitment agencies work?

Recruitment agencies like Success Route Consulting, use a meticulous hiring process to ensure that our client is provided with indispensable talent.

1. GROUNDWORK: In this phase the agreement between us and our client is carried out. The client presents their prerequisites for the job post, such as job description, responsibilities the company expects from the employee, candidate qualifications, experience needed, whether the work is full-time or part-time, etc.

2. PLAN OF ACTION: Using the prerequisites, we come up with a strategy to reach out to the target candidates. We utilize our hiring specialists or recruiters to determine where to advertise for the job opening.

The hiring team adjusts their strategy according to their expansive knowledge of market trends and job type.

3. SIFTING THROUGH: Once the action plan has been decided, our team can then start looking through candidates for the job post.

They apply different methods in order to search through aspirants. They accomplish that through referrals, previous candidates, advertisements, direct recruitment, etc.

4. SCREENING: In this phase, candidates qualifications, work experience and achievements are evaluated against the job requisites.

After the screening is done, our recruiters contact the selected candidates through email or phone call to verify whether the former is still pursuing the job post.

5. SELECTING: Interviews are conducted in order to conclude whether the candidate is suited for the job. In interviews, aspirants' interpersonal skills, stress management and problem-solving skills are assessed.

6. APPOINTMENT: When an optimum candidate is selected, an offer letter is drafted compiling information about the start date, work hours, compensation, salary, etc.

Performance expectations are also included in the offer letter, to let the aspirant know how the company will evaluate their performance.

7. ASSESSMENT: After the official hiring process is concluded, we analyze our process details in order to ensure client satisfaction.

We also conduct surveys asking the company about their experiences with the process to be thorough in our assessment.

Recruitment outsourcing can be advantageous to companies looking for top-tier talent. They work to simplify the hiring process and save valuable resources such as time and money.

If you're looking for high-caliber talent for your company, contact our recruitment services today!
