Why Engaging With A Recruiter Now Is The Best Thing You Could Do For Your Business

If you've been trying to find the perfect candidate for your business, you may have noticed that the market has gotten a little icy.

With the increasing competition among employers to attract the right talent, it's time to rethink your recruitment strategy. While job sites are one way to find candidates, it's not always the most effective approach. This is where a good recruitment partner comes in. Here, we will discuss why engaging with a recruiter now is the best thing you could do for your business when looking for permanent staffing.

The Importance of a Good Recruitment Strategy

As a business owner or hiring manager, you want to ensure that your recruitment process is seamless, efficient, and effective. A good recruitment strategy can help you achieve this. We work with our clients to identify hiring needs, create job descriptions, screen candidates, conduct interviews, and make offers. We know that with the current candidate shortage, it's becoming more challenging to attract the right talent. This is where a recruiter like LD Recruit can help.

Recruiters Have Networks You Can Tap Into

One of the significant benefits of engaging with a recruiter is that they have a vast network of potential candidates that you may not be able to access on your own. At LD Recruit, we have access to both active and passive job seekers, people who aren’t actively looking for a job, but might be interested in the right opportunity came along. Our reach means you’re in front of a wider audience of potential candidates. We’re confident we can help you find the right talent to met your overall business strategy.

A good recruitment partner is not just well-networked in terms of candidates; they are also connected to other professionals who can help you with your staffing needs. We work with CV writers to enable candidates to have their best attributes shining and HR specialists to create compelling job descriptions, and onboarding best practices that attract & retain the right candidates all while focused on your vision and goals. 

Recruitment is so much more in this current climate.  It is about the wrap around experience.  Who do you know, how do you position it and attract to how do you onboard and retain your people.

In a Candidate Short Market, You Cannot Rely on Job Sites Alone

In a candidate short market, you cannot rely on job sites alone to find the right person for your role. While job sites are an excellent resource, they are not always the most effective way to find the right talent. We can help you identify potential candidates who may not be actively looking for work but would be interested in your role.  With LD Recruit’s expertise it is about who are you looking for, and how do we best market this opportunity to attract that person.

Get a Recruitment Partner Who Understands Your Business

A good recruitment partner should be a matchmaker between candidates and employers. We take the time to understand your business, your direction, and your strategy. By doing so, we can help you find the right person who not only has the right skills but also fits into your company culture.

The Importance of Your Brand in a Frosty Job Market

Have you thought about how your recruitment process and overall package offering are a reflection of your brand? Every interaction people have with your business says something about you. We help you maximise this by providing you with the support and guidance needed to create a positive candidate experience.

And it's not just about your recruitment process. Your overall package offering is also important. Are you offering competitive salaries and benefits? Do you have a positive company culture? Are you doing everything you can to make your business an attractive place to work? These are all factors that can make a big difference in whether or not a candidate decides to accept your offer.

Why Use a Recruitment Agency, Now More Than Ever?

As with all markets this is a season.  One that has lasted longer, and perhaps got a little frostier for employers.  We have been hearing more and more in the media about how hard it is to find staff across nearly all industries and skill sets. Candidates are becoming more selective with what they will look at and consider. So what are you going to do?

The frosty job market may seem daunting, but with the help of a good recruiter, you can survive and even thrive. Now more than ever, it's crucial to have a strong recruitment process and brand. A good recruiter will help you on that journey.
