Why Should Employers use a Recruitment Agency?

At Stafffinders, we believe that people are a company's greatest asset. This is why we trust the importance of taking the utmost care when finding the right candidates to best serve an organisation. For nearly 50 years, our team have been matching the right candidates with the right company, and we continue to witness the positive impact and success these services have had on both our clients and candidates.

Recruitment agencies are usually surrounded by many misconceptions, with the biggest one being the cost. However, using an employment agency to build your team not only saves you money but also saves time and resources, whilst creating a genuine partnership for immediate or upcoming recruitment needs. 

Save time and resources

There is no denying that recruiting new members of staff can be a very lengthy process whilst also requiring a large selection of resources. From writing job descriptions and sourcing multiple CV’s to reviewing applications and conducting numerous interviews…tired already? Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for! We do all of the above and more, such as managing all candidate communication, confirming reference requirements and providing feedback, ensuring an efficient and smooth process every time. Recruitment agencies also have premium access to multiple job boards and advertising platforms, which may not be cost-effective or affordable for small companies looking to recruit in-house.

Our team here at Stafffinders also manage payroll for all of our clients, saving you even more time in the long run. Working with a recruitment agency, therefore, allows you to dedicate your time to other essential tasks and appreciate the peace of mind that expert recruiters can source the best talent to suit your organisation.

Exceptional talent market

At Stafffinders, our specialist consultants possess expert knowledge of the industries in which they recruit. They have access to extensive networks of talented candidates and their databases grow regularly. This means that we are able to evaluate a very high-quality pool of candidates to suitably match each role and company culture. Our large talent pool are also carefully pre-screened and referenced, providing you with genuine talent in order to meet demand. We take care of everything, meaning you don't need to worry about a thing.

Recruiting in-house may also mean that you are only receiving applications for the role and not actively seeking the perfect candidate for the job. Utilising a recruitment agency, with a dedicated consultant in your field allows us to explore and hunt down the best talent to fit your company and the role in particular, presenting you with the perfect candidate every time.

Greater flexibility

In addition to recruiting permanent employees for our clients, Stafffinders also supply temporary staff all over Scotland. This is particularly useful for companies who require seasonal help, absence cover or those who experience a demand for projects that need extra support on a temporary basis. For companies requiring temporary assistance, clients have the opportunity to review whether the candidate is a suitable match for their needs. If you believe there is an alternative candidate who would be more suited to the role, rest assured you can confide in us to source a better match.

Stafffinders also offer a rebate period to clients for whom we provide permanent staff, meaning if required, we can process fee refunds if the candidate leaves their position within a given period of time. Therefore, whether you require temporary or permanent staff for your organisation, you can benefit from unrivalled flexibility and efficient adjustments to ensure your company needs come first.

Expert industry knowledge

Our specialist consultants recruit for a living, therefore receive first-hand industry knowledge across multiple sectors in order to scan the job market and keep up with supply and demand trends. Most of our consultants also have experience in their particular field and therefore grasp a better understanding of what clients may be looking for and what kind of individual would be an ideal fit.

Creating a loyal and trustworthy partnership with a recruitment agency gives us the opportunity to get to know your business inside out, meaning our dedicated consultant can help support and guide you through the best options with your organisations' requirements in mind. We use our expertise to offer advice on rates, hiring processes, candidate availability and so much more in order to provide you with a tailored solution every time.

  • Southside housing association:

“I have been extremely happy with the service received from Stafffinders.  The standard of candidates put forward to us has been very high and would recommend Stafffinders to other companies looking for temporary members of staff.”

  • Albacore catering:

“I have been using Stafffinders for six months now. A good recruitment company, who have good, reliable staff. Their consultant Graeme keeps in regular contact and lets you know the person he has organised for you within a couple of hours. I would highly recommend Stafffinders.”

  • Loch Lomond Hotel:

“We have used Stafffinders for a number of years and we have always found their service to be of high quality.  As a company, they are professional, conscientious and competitively priced.  Their team members are very helpful, courteous, professional at all times and work extremely hard to find the 'right fit for the job'.”

  • JKR Industrial Cleaning:

”I contacted Craig Kenny from Stafffinders at 1pm on a Glasgow bank holiday weekend. This was the result of our previous agency seriously letting us down at the 11th hr. To say we have been impressed by the professionalism and focus from initial contact from Craig would be an injustice to the service he provided. His actions were prompt and his results have now confirmed that we at JKR have a new working relationship which I know will expand and develop over time. Well done Craig. Thank you.”
