Finance/professional services company looking to recruit?

With low candidate availability and a lack of the required skillsets on the Island, why should Financial and Professional services companies look at using a Recruitment Agency to help?

The answer is straight forward in many respects; we are searching 24 hours a day, 7 days a week 365 days of the year. We are always looking for suitable candidates, we don’t stop looking and we search far and wide. Best of all, unless you hire someone from us, it doesn’t cost you a penny.

A good Recruiter takes the time to understand the business it is recruiting for, and indeed the candidates it represents. This means that when a role does arise, they can identify the right candidate, not based purely on skillset, but culture, personality, qualifications and team fit for the company’s culture.

Unemployment on the Island is at its lowest in 16 years which can make Recruitment for companies more challenging. However, it is not uncommon for a Recruiter to take on a role that a client has been struggling to fill, and within 24 hours can have a number of relevant CVs in their inbox to look at.

A well-established Recruitment agency has a network of thousands of candidates both local and non-local that are actively seeking alternative employment. They are also skilled at identifying talent and perhaps skillsets that you wouldn’t have considered. Interviewing and spending the time with candidates allows them to recognise a fit.

When you contact a long standing agency you get many years’ worth of contacts and networks. To send a shortlist of skilled and capable candidates doesn’t happen overnight.

So next time you are thinking for a career move, or looking to recruit remember you can get off to the best possible start by speaking to a local recruitment agency. Get in touch, they are here to help.
