How to Work Best with Recruiters

There has never been a more crucial time to work cohesivley with recruiters. To get the most out of your investment in recruitment follow these steps New Chapter believe are the key to effective and efficient recruitment.

1. Anticipating the Need for New Hires

Establish communication or a relationship with a recruiter or recruitment company that is both vetted against your companies values and one that you believe will provide you a good service that will ultimately fill your requirements. Internally, it is important for you to develop a rigorous forecast if the company’s talent needs – and then link your talent plan into your strategic plan.

2. Specify the Job Clearly

Ensure you have defined what the job will demand, and which skills and experience are relevant, so that the recruiter clearly understands what you are wanting and can utilise their candidate database accordingly. Also take into consideration how company culture and  context could affect the role and the candidate suitability.

3. Have Regular Updates with your Recruiter when they are Developing the Talent Pool

You will not be annoying your recruiter if you check in to ask how the search is going. Checking in on their progress could mean the difference between a 2-week recruitment process and a 2-month process, which can save you a lot of time and money.

4. Be Enthusiastic

Your recruiter of choice will have the up-most excitement to fill your vacancy, and it helps if you, the client, returns this enthusiasm. This can be in the form of quick responses to calls or e-mails and showing active support in a candidate’s journey.
