How to avoid recruitment nightmares

Recruiting the right staff can be a scary prospect. It’s time-consuming, costly, and all too easy to make the wrong decisions. According to research, hiring the wrong person can cost organisations up to £30,000. That’s time and money lost to re-advertising and re-hiring, as well as taking a potential hit to your income. Yet we also know that finding the right people is difficult. The Recruitment Employment Confederation believes there are 146,200 vacancies in the UK right now because organisations like yours can’t find the right people to fill the roles you have available.

This is where a recruitment agency can help. But how can using an external organisation make your job of recruiting the right people a less frightening prospect?

Look at the bigger picture

Sometimes you’re too busy. Sometimes you’re too close to something to be fully subjective about it. Sometimes it’s just good to get the advice and the help of an expert. This is how a skilled recruitment agency becomes an asset to your organisation. Here are six major benefits of working with such an agency:

1. Flexibility: Agencies supply temporary, permanent and contract staff. Many temporary staff can (and do) go on to become permanent employees. In other words, you as an employer do not have to commit to permanent roles if a question mark remains over how sustainable such a position might be.

2. Value for money: Agencies do the recruiting for you, saving you time and money. Following a thorough due diligence process, Supertemps can act as your virtual HR department, or supplement your own. You can choose how we work with you – use us to advertise your vacancy, sift CVs, shortlist and interview candidates, and advise you every step of the way.

3. Efficiency:  It’s an agency’s business to hire for you as efficiently and effectively as possible. Supertemps has a pool of candidates waiting and can tap into a vast network of other recruiters that enables us to find great people from anywhere in the UK.

4. Knowledge: Don’t have nightmares wondering if you’re at risk of falling foul of complex and ever-changing employment legislation. We’re trained in and kept up to date with all laws that affect you and your employees.

5. A one-stop-shop: Supertemps can handle payroll of candidates placed through us, so that’s one less job for you. We can conduct skills assessments including psychometric testing and process DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks. We’re here when you need advice, all through one, friendly yet professional point of contact.

6. Experience: It might go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway: we know our stuff! Supertemps has been recruiting in North Wales since 1980 - we are experts in our marketplace.

Your people are your greatest asset – why leave it to chance?

Whether you’re struggling to find the right people, or about to embark on a recruitment campaign for one or more staff, the first thing to do is give us a call. After all, your staff are your biggest and best asset.
