What re the benefits of using a recruitment agency instead of internal recruitment?

Quality candidates and great jobs are our reason for being!

Sometimes we experience a disparity between exceptional candidates wanting or needing to change roles versus the number of jobs out there; currently, the best candidates have great options and are in higher demand than ever – getting snapped up in no time. Good news for them – bad news for clients… competition is hot hot hot! As an agency, we are here to help candidates and clients with advice and offer a superior recruitment service. With our understanding of the markets and access to a depth and breadth of candidates, our services help streamline your hiring process.

This allows you to focus on your day-to-day business and what you do best. Joyce Guiness has been practicing for over 50 years, and myself more than 20 years. With this length of time, not only comes grey hair and a few wrinkles but wisdom and knowledge of our market that takes years of experience to navigate as effectively as possible. I have seen recessions, market crashes, and – one thing I could never have imagined – a pandemic.

I have the benefit of our ‘little black book’ – a database full of quality candidates that we know and keep in regular contact with, and proactively approach when the right roles come in. We can advise you on new legislation, hybrid working or temp/contract employment, we can make clear how the market is reacting, and advise on candidate versus client expectations when it comes to working practices and salaries. It’s a challenging market, but we keep delivering and are working harder than ever. A shortage of quality candidates is why using a recruitment agency is a time and money well spent. So, in short, YES using a recruiter involves fees, but costs are absorbed and returned in the long run with Joyce Guiness right behind you giving ongoing support.
