You want your business to succeed. To make that goal materialize, you’re going to have to ensure that you’re hiring the best possible candidates for the job—and that’s where recruitment agencies come in to connect you with the right people.

But just how do recruitment agencies work? They’re actually quite simple. 

What Is a Recruitment Agency?

A recruitment agency works to help you find the right people for the job, whatever that job may be. You decide on the vocation that you want to advertise, and they take care of finding you the most suitable candidates. They can even manage the initial interview process to make sure you have time for the more important things that go along with running your business.

On the other side of things, a recruitment agency can help individuals find the perfect jobs for them. They get to know the applicants and their capabilities, as well as the type of job they’re looking for. Then, they start looking for jobs to match. Before you know it, you could have several possibilities waiting for you—and you’ll have a leg up on the competition who apply from outside the recruitment agency. That’s because the agency also gives you support along the way.

Why Use a Recruitment Agency?

As a business owner, using a recruitment agency means you spend less time posting jobs, advertising openings, screening potential candidates, and going through onboarding for people who aren’t going to cut it. Instead, you can send all the information to the agency and let them do the work. They can even help you with creating every step of the onboarding process and everything that comes before it.

As a potential employee, using a recruitment agency means you get tips for interviews and learn more about what managers are looking for and how to land your dream job. You’ll even get help with creating a resume. All of these things could help you get hired. Even better, if you apply for one job and you aren’t the right fit, a recruitment agency will keep looking for you until they find something that works.

How Do Recruitment Agencies Work?

Now that you know all about the benefits, let’s take a closer look at just how these agencies work. The process is quite straightforward and allows both sides to get what they need quickly.

As a business owner, the process starts by you deciding which positions you want to fill within your company. You may or may not create a full job description, but you should have some information about what you’re looking for in terms of skills or qualifications. You can also speak with a recruitment advisor to come to a clearer decision about the position you’re hiring for and the ideal candidate.

Once you’ve created the description, it’s time to start advertising. The recruitment agency takes care of this for you by getting your post out to as many qualified applicants as possible. From there, they take care of the preliminary screening for all applicants, including looking over resumes and conducting initial interviews.

As an applicant, a recruitment agency can guide you in drafting a resume and then help you figure out the right positions to apply for. They do this by screening through the jobs that are posted within their agency to see where you might fit and then sending your information forward to the company (after checking with you, of course). This way, you spend less time sending out resumes but still get the interviews.

What Our Customers Have to Say

“We were looking for someone to run our social channels with a strategy and aesthetic that resonated with our customers. It had to be someone that was already fluent, familiar and would get who we were as well as be the kind of person comfortable with coming into the office. We tried filling this role ourselves through our network in the past and it never really worked out the way we wanted. Luckily, I found Stephen at Ad Culture and left it to him to find the rockstar we knew we needed – we got sent our first candidate and there wasn’t a need for a second. Ad Culture understood us and the candidates. Hopefully, it’ll be a long time until we need another recruiter, but when we do, we know where to go. ”

“The team at Ad Culture really came through for us on a very particular need we had. We wanted to meet influencers in the fitness space that would be ambassadors, work with our clients and devote themselves full time. Seeing that they had a background in digital advertising and influencer marketing, we reached out and made it happen. Results were so good we referred them to our counterpart in the US.”

“I resisted using a recruiter for a long time because of the cost, but when I calculated all the time spent in drafting the job descriptions, collecting resumes, sifting through, scheduling screening interviews, all to not find the right person, I reached out to Ad Culture and the money was well worth it. I felt Stephen really understood the kind of person we were looking for and their skiillsets.”
