Why Your Company Should Outsource Their Recruitment

Outsourcing recruitment can offer several advantages to a company. Here are some reasons why your company might consider outsourcing its recruitment process:

  • Cost Savings

Expertise at Lower Cost

Outsourcing recruitment to a recognised recruitment agency can be cost-effective, as these agencies will have expertise in sourcing and screening candidates efficiently in your sector. Recruiting is time consuming and you could be using up valuable time needed to operate your business on a day to day basis.


  • Time Efficiency

Faster Hiring Process

Recruitment agencies typically have a streamlined and efficient hiring process, which can result in faster candidate placements.

Focus on Core Activities

Outsourcing allows the company’s internal HR team to focus on strategic and core business activities rather than spending excessive time on recruitment.


  • Access to a Larger Talent Pool

Wider Network

Recruitment Agencies specialising in particular industries have a good reputation, therefore, they will already have a large network of active candidates that may be interested in your job vacancy as well as registered passive candidates who have already had discussions with their preferred agency on the type of roles they will only consider should the right opportunity arise. Sometimes it takes someone neutral to discuss the benefits of changing roles. It’s a good idea to build relationships with certain recruitment agencies. Talking regularly to a recruitment agency to let them know your future plans is a positive way to build up trust with that agency so that when you are ready to hire they know exactly what type of individual you’re looking for. They could be contacted by individuals that just may be that perfect fit for your and your company, however. without giving the recruitment agency the time they may not think of you.


  • Flexibility


Outsourcing recruitment allows companies to scale their hiring efforts up or down based on fluctuating business needs without the challenges of managing an in-house team size. Recruitment agencies can offer temporary hiring solutions to cope with your varied needs such as payroll solutions, holiday and pension entitlements.

Seasonal Demand

Companies with seasonal hiring needs can benefit from the flexibility of outsourcing recruitment during peak periods.


  • Risk Mitigation

Candidate Quality Assurance

Agencies often have thorough screening processes, which can mitigate the risk of hiring the wrong candidate.

Global Presence

For companies with a global footprint, outsourcing recruitment to agencies with international reach can be valuable in sourcing candidates for diverse locations.

  • Focus on Core Competencies

Strategic Focus

Outsourced recruiting is beneficial as it allows the recruitment agency to do what they do best, and gives you more time to concentrate on your core business. Recruitment agencies are designed to manage your entire recruitment process from start to finish.

The great thing about this is that we also guarantee this placement. Should the employee leave within the first year then we will provide a replacement free of charge.

If you have a short term contract, seasonal or project demands then this may be the best option for you. We will take care of the full hiring process along with payrolling your employee on your behalf.

Should you wish to take the employee on permanently after 12 weeks you can hire them on a permanent basis as no extra cost to your business. This is called our ‘temp to perm’ option.

Whilst there are clear benefits to outsourcing recruitment, it’s essential for you to carefully evaluate the specific needs of your business, the reputation of the outsourcing partner you choose, and the potential impact on the culture and values of your company before making a decision.
