Is your company looking to hire new employees? The process of sifting through candidates’ resumes, attending countless interviews and narrowing down your shortlisted candidates can be a lot to manage, particularly if your business lacks an internal hiring team. Choosing a recruitment agency to outsource your hiring needs can be a major time saver. 

At TLH Recruitment, we have the experience to source your potential candidates and ensure your future employees are the right fit for your team and tick all your boxes. If you’re unsure where to begin when choosing a recruitment agency, this handy guide will provide you with useful tips to help narrow down your search and choose the recruitment agency that’s right for you and your business. 

How do I choose the best recruitment agency?

If you’re asking yourself, “How do I choose the best recruitment agency”? The answer very much depends on the unique needs of your business. We’re here to help provide you with all the important questions you should be asking yourself when choosing a recruitment agency

  • Create a checklist of your goals and hiring needs

Before contacting recruitment agencies, you should work with your team to collate a list of qualities you’re looking for in an employee and any potential challenges. For instance, are you looking for casual, part-time or full-time employees? What are the necessary skills and qualifications that this team member will require to succeed in this role? What is your expected salary range? The more information you collate, your recruitment agency will be better equipped to find the right match for your business.

  • Interview prospective recruitment agencies to partner with

Before you settle on the first recruitment agency you find, you want to be sure of your decision, just like if you were making a purchase. To do so, treat each recruitment agency you consider as an interviewee and ask them all the necessary questions to help guide your decision. 

Ask them if they have the candidates you’re looking for, whether they can find you a suitable candidate in your required time period, and what their quality check process looks like. After all, you want to be sure that you’re aligned with your business goals to integrate a valuable member into your team.

  • Ensure your cost is within budget

While recruitment agencies build a reputation for themselves as having connections with top-quality candidates, you also want to ensure you’re partnering up with an agency you can work with in the long term that aligns with your budget requirements. After all, you don’t want to break the bank to find quality staff. Inquiring about the expected budget early in the process will ensure you know exactly what to expect before you sign on.

  • Learn what areas or sectors your recruitment agency specialises in

The best part about pairing up with a recruitment agency is that you’re gaining access to their valuable industry connections, particularly if they have their areas of expertise. At TLH Recruitment, we manage our clients’ recruitment needs across various industries, from construction to hospitality, logistics and warehousing, retail, IT, administration and more. Through our many years of experience building networks across key specialist areas, we’ve provided our clients with the best talent pool that addresses their recruitment needs. 

  • Ask yourself, does my recruiter have the necessary experience?

The final step you should take before choosing your recruitment agency is to ensure they have years of experience under their belt and a valued reputation. Check their client testimonials, feedback and years of experience to ensure you’re choosing the best recruitment agency in Sydney.
