Recruiting for large-scale projects can be a difficult and time consuming experience. Clients may be tempted to use multiple channels or recruiters to source quality candidates. In this article, TRS Staffing Solutions (TRS) discuss how engaging and investing in your chosen recruiter may prove more fruitful in your search for the right candidate.
Using multiple recruiters in your staffing search can have a negative impact on the speed of sourcing. If many recruitment companies are staffing for the same project, they will be far more cautious as to how much resource they should dedicate to your search.
When utilising a single recruiter, the client is getting the recruiter’s full commitment to filling their vacant role. A client may think they get more effort from a recruiter when there is competition, but this can instead encourage short bursts of activity from the recruiter. Consistent dedication is prioritised to clients who trust their recruiter to solely provide for them. This also applies candidates looking for roles.
It can be a difficult experience to keep up to date with multiple channels and contacts trying to find candidates for you, especially on top of the client’s role within the business. This can place a lot of responsibility and stress on the client to juggle multiple commitments, which can result in costing the company both time and money.
The responsibility for success can instead be shifted to a single recruiter, meaning they take ownership of this process on your behalf so that you can prioritise your work. If you find that the recruiter fails you, the business relationship will end.
A lack of time to source candidates can mean that companies fail to hire the best suited person for the role. When utilising a recruiter, the client is able to take the focus off speed and back on quality. ‘Exclusivity’ means the recruiter has time to thoroughly search for ideal candidates using well maintained talent pipelines.
It also allows the recruiter to take advantage of all of their resources in the talent search, creating a thorough, detailed talent search across talent networks, online communities and social media pages. Clients expressing trust in a specific recruiter are likely to have exclusive access to the best candidates sourced.
Contradictory messages can be a risk when using multiple recruiters. This can impact the perception of the company and create significant confusion if multiple recruiters are contacting the same candidates with varying messages.
A single recruiter such as TRS are able to preserve client confidentiality when seeking excellent candidates. This ensures that all candidates receive consistent information, and are searched for consistently using the requirements from the client. One dedicated recruiter also improves brand image for the client when disclosed, as the talent perception of the need for hire is not devalued.
