Recruitment agencies are outside companies who find candidates for employers.
People often get confused with recruitment agencies with employment agencies.
- If you get a job through a recruitment agency, you become an employee of the employer.
- If you get a job through an employment agency, you become an employee of the employment agency.
Recruiting people takes a huge amount of time, and for many companies it is a real struggle to find enough time to do it well. Recruitment is also very much a numbers game: an employer often has to look at a lot of applications before the right person for the role is found.
Employers need the right people to apply for their jobs, but often they don’t have the time to go and find these people themselves. They use recruitment agencies to do this for them, so that the employer can spend more of their time interviewing applicants.
Agencies are a major and important part of recruiting for the computing industry in the UK.
Some important advantages of hiring a recruitment agency:
- Knowledge of the market
- Extended reach
- Candidates not applicants
- Help with employer brand
- Access to key strategic skills
