Brisbane Recruitment Company, 1300Hired Shares Five Questions Every Business Should Ask When Hiring an Online Recruitment Agency
Brisbane Recruitment Company 1300Hired’s CEO, Neil Damerow discusses the recruitment and selection process and the benefits of using a recruitment agency.
[When hiring], it’s important to make sure you’re covered – especially financially – in case the recruitment agency is unsuccessful. Research weather they have replacement guarantees, to include service and replacement guarantees, so you’re not left short changed or vulnerable.
The recruitment and selection process for any business can be a time consuming, expensive and stressful period. Savvy business owners wishing to simplify this hiring process generally utilise recruitment agencies, to remove the bookwork and reduce the hassle. But with so many models of recruitment agencies available, it can be difficult to determine which recruitment company is the best fit for a business.
To make this decision easier, Brisbane recruitment company 1300Hired, urges business owners to interview recruitment agencies before signing on. Company founder and CEO, Neil Damerow says an interview will remove the noise from the industry, and allow business owners to become crystal clear on what they require, and whether the agency is suited to these needs. www.1300hired.com.au
The Brisbane recruitment company CEO suggests asking these top five questions to help form the foundational understanding of recruitment agency operations.
1. What is the business’s recruitment budget?
“The first thing to consider is whether or not you’re looking for a high or low cost recruitment option, and if you’d like an agency that charges a percentage of salary package or a fixed fee model,” Neil says. “Business owners need to be aware too, that engaging with multiple agencies will automatically mean a percentage of salary fee of anywhere from 10- 20 per cent.”
1300Hired offers five low cost fixed fee recruitment options for businesses, with a 30 day service guarantee, three month employee guarantee and a candidate exclusivity guarantee. Whilst it’s not uncommon for a recruitment agency to charge close to $10,000 for one staff member’s recruitment, 1300Hired works off a fixed fee recruitment model that makes hiring very affordable. www.1300hired.com.au
2. Is it better to use a single agency, or go into the market and use multiple agencies?
“Deciding to use multiple agencies will amplify the workload, because business owners will need to supply individual job briefs to each agency. It can be very stressful for the time poor business owner,” says Neil.
“The other downside of this is that as only the successful agency will get paid for the placement, meaning all the others won’t get paid. This means some agencies won’t be committed because they will prioritise their guaranteed (paid) work first, and the ones that do commit will submit as many resumes as quickly as possible, essentially focusing on speed and quantity over quality.”
1300Hired has a 97 per cent recruitment success rate, because of their dedication to their clients and commitment to finding the ideal candidate for the job.
3. Does the agency have expertise in a specific area or industry?
“If the recruitment agency is a specialist in only a few industries, they may not align with your needs as a client. It’s important to have an understanding of this, because they may not be able to service your needs if they only have a few types of candidate personalities and skill sets,” says Neil. www.1300hired.com.au
4. Will the recruitment agency reach the widest possible candidate market to fill the role?
“Ask the recruiter how they will go about finding the right candidate, and what they would do to advertise the role,” says Neil. “What candidate markets do they have access to? What kind of insights do they have into the market that you’re trying to penetrate? How will they maximise the exposure of your role vacancy to the widest possible candidate market?”
1300Hired exposes job opportunities to 20 job boards and social media sites through online recruitment, and accesses the widest available markets for active job seekers.
1300Hired also provides a Targeted Search service to search for specialised candidates in high demand and short supply, and who are not actively responding to job advertisements.
5. Does the recruitment agency have any guarantees or assurances if there isn’t any success?
“It’s important to make sure you’re covered – especially financially – in case the recruitment agency is unsuccessful,” says Neil. “Research weather they have replacement guarantees, to include service and replacement guarantees, so you’re not left short changed or vulnerable.”
1300Hired completely backs their services with a triple guarantee for peace of mind every step of the way. Their 30 day service guarantee ensures that if the right candidate is not established within the 30 day advertising campaign, they will re-advertise again and continue the recruitment process for a further 30 days at no cost to the client. www.1300hired.com.au
They also guarantee that all candidates presented to the client are exclusively theirs, and will not be offered to another client or competitor. Should a candidate not work out in the first three months of employment, they will commit to finding a replacement free of change, with no questions and no fine print conditions.
1300Hired’s mission is to help their clients acquire quality hires in the fastest time at the lowest overall cost to the business. They are a hiring partner for businesses that may have limited internal resources, finances or time to undertake part or all of their hiring process.
The company has evolved their services with a sister company for the last 16 years, to meet client demands and deliver a service that fulfil client needs and preferences, and have been listed on BRW’s Fast 100 twice.
1300Hired offers a selection of five services ranging in price that are specifically designed to complement the hiring activities usually undertaken in-house. There are no agency fees, no restriction on candidate numbers (for a single service fee) and no hidden costs.
