If you are considering appointing a recruitment consultant you’ll want to get the best from them. Here are Copeland’s top 10 behaviours of great employers:
Be selective – only appoint 1 or 2 agencies to work on any one vacancy. Aim to build long term supplier relationships.
Face to face meeting. Invite your consultant to visit your business so they can really understand your culture & what you do.
Brief thoroughly on the vacancy, company, candidate requirements (essential & desirable)
Involve the line manager – let them brief your consultant on the vacancy
Have realistic time-scales – take advice from your consultant on how long is needed
Take your consultant’s advice – they should be able to advise you on your job brief, salary level and whether this is realistic.
Brief well on interview process – interview panel, format, required preparation etc.
Provide feedback for candidates after they have attended an interview.
Don’t Delay – in a competitive job market move as fast as possible
Communicate regularly with your consultant all through the process.
