Choosing The Right Scarborough Recruitment Agency

By Eugenia Dickerson

Getting the best person for a job is not easy. The most popular vacancies can result in hundreds and even thousands of applications. One way to narrow down these applications and simplify the process is by using the services of a Scarborough recruitment agency.

The sad fact is it can be very difficult to fairly judge a large amount of applications. The shortlist you make may not necessarily reflect the best possible talent available. Someone may be brilliant but lack the ability to present themselves well on paper or get nervous during an interview.

The advantage of using an agency is that this is an additional filtering out process. Instead of going through hundreds of applications yourself someone else can do this for you. In theory what should remain are the few candidates that are best suited to the job that you want them to do. Ideally the agency will not simply keep details and match up those details but also look at the person themselves and judge whether they are appropriate in terms of both skills and personality as well as qualifications.

With the best agencies this will be the case. However before you approach an agency you need to think who it is you want. If your job is very specialist then it is probably best to contact someone who deals only in your particular industry and therefore will find candidates best suited to that industry and the role you want them to do.

Another aspect is their communication skills. If you find it difficult to arrange meetings with them or they do not listen to your feedback then this means they are not taking your needs seriously. If you feel this is the case then it is vital to find a recruiter who understands what you want and adapts to it.

You also need to think if they are appropriate in terms of approach. Sometimes it is best to choose a specialist especially if you need someone with specific skills. For example if you run a restaurant you would not necessarily need a specialist agency for bar staff but you would more likely to want to see a specialist if you wanted a head chef who had a few years of experience in Thai cookery or a waiter with silver service training in order to work in a fine dining restaurant.

A good way to find out more is to visit the agency in person. While waiting you should talk to people who are waiting with you. This is often a good way to get feedback and find out more from the people who are using their services. Using social media and checking feedback online can also help.

The best Scarborough recruitment agency will be flexible and able to grow with you. As businesses grow their recruitment needs change and a recruiter needs to be aware of this. Use your regular search engine to find out what is available in your local area and to find the best one to suit your needs.
