Tuesday Thoughts: “Oh, you’re one of those”

“Oh, you’re one of those”

I attended an event once, and introduced myself to someone I didn’t know as the Co-Founder and Managing Director of SimkissGuy Recruitment Ltd.

That was their response. Charming, don’t you think?

Engaging a recruitment consultancy may involve a fee, but it offers excellent value for money and proves to be a cost-effective investment for businesses seeking top talent.

With nearly 20 years of recruitment expertise, including 10 years as the Founder and Managing Director of SimkissGuy Recruitment Ltd, for this weeks’ Tuesday Thoughts, I wanted to share why a recruitment consultancy fee is worth it:

  • Time and Resource Savings: Hiring great staff takes a considerable amount of time, up to 6 weeks on average and even longer for senior appointments. Recruitment consultancies handle the hiring process, allowing you to focus on core business operations. They expertly handle tasks like candidate sourcing, screening, and initial interviews, saving you the hassle of reviewing hundreds of CVs and contacting potential candidates. This support alone saves significant time and resources.
  • Access to Extensive and Exclusive Networks: Recruitment consultancies have vast networks and databases of potential candidates, including those who may not be actively job-seeking. This direct access to a diverse talent pool increases your chances of finding the perfect fit for the role.
  • Specialised Expertise: Good Recruitment Consultants are experienced professionals with specialised knowledge. They understand market trends and candidate behaviours, allowing them to identify exceptional talent efficiently and reduce the time-to-hire, minimising the risk of a bad recruit.
  • Reduced Hiring Costs: Though the consultancy fee may seem like an additional cost, it can lead to cost savings in the long run. A well-executed recruitment process results in finding the right candidate faster, reducing the need for costly extended job postings and repeat recruitment efforts.
  • Improved Quality of Hire: Recruitment consultancies emphasise candidate evaluation and cultural fit, recognising that attitude and personality are often more critical than skills. By presenting only the most qualified and suitable candidates who align with your company’s culture, the likelihood of successful hires increases, contributing to overall success and productivity.

The value of a recruitment consultancy fee lies in the time and resources saved, access to extensive networks, specialised expertise, reduced hiring costs, improved quality of hire, and the assurance of confidentiality.
