Choosing a good recruitment consultant

Working with a recruitment consultant is an excellent and very proactive way to secure the ideal candidate in the accountancy or finance industry. With their specialist recruitment knowledge and numerous contacts within the industry, a consultant will be able to save you time and money hunting for candidates and instead, streamline the process and make it quick and simple for your company.

Getting started and finding the right company to work with can be a challenge, especially as there are thousands around the country to choose from. Here are some top tips on how to choose a good recruitment consultant and fill the gaps in your business in no time. 

#1 Do they have experience?

Working with a recruitment agency is a great way forward, but one of the key elements of finding the right candidate is knowing the industry. This is vital because it will help with finding candidates, not only quickly, but ones who possess the relevant and necessary skills to conduct the job to a high standard. Without knowledge of the industry or the roles and responsibilities involved in the finance industry, you could spend a lot of time unnecessarily with the wrong candidate. 

#2 What sectors do they serve? 

A good range of services that suit the needs of your company is important when it comes to choosing the right recruitment consultancy. Look for a company that offers a variety of services in different practice areas, as you will need different roles fulfilled as your business grows. Some ideal sectors include general practice (audits, accounts, corporate, tax), financial services (sales and non-sales), human resources, digital, legal and marketing. Working with a recruitment consultant on a long term basis will benefit your business, as they learn about you and can help strategise the right job roles for your business growth now and in the future. 

#3 What services can they offer you?

You want to work with a recruitment consultant who takes the time to understand your business and your needs, will build a relationship with you, and tailor a cost-effective approach for your requirements. You may also want to consider a consultancy that offers a range of services, so that you can keep everything under one roof, for example, the ability to pre-screen candidates before you interview them, and offer help and advice on salaries and offers. These components are specialist skills that a consultant should have and can play a major role in choosing the right recruitment consultant. 

#4 Are they reliable?

It is a good idea to research the company before you work with them, to determine if they are reliable and trustworthy. You can speak to old clients, and look at their reviews online. You want to find a company that only provides a high level and professional service to all its clients, and has the resources and passion to work hard and source the ideal candidates for you. 

Choosing the right recruitment consultant to work with is a challenge, but is worth the time and effort, as it will help you find the perfect candidates to grow your business and thrive.
