10 reasons to work with a recruitment agency in South Africa

Good specialist recruitment agencies in South Africa are never cheap and surely anyone can place an advert? But have you ever thought of the extra time, the greater risk and the expense of recruiting yourself? Before you completely outrule working with a specialist recruiter, here are some considerations:

1. Save time

Recruiting the right staff takes time. Outsourcing recruitment allows you to focus on your core business. This frees up your time to concentrate on developing and retaining your existing staff.

2. Access to passive job seekers

Recruitment agencies have access to a larger pool of candidates who may not know about your company or have seen your adverts. We have developed long standing relationships with passive job seekers who may be a better fit with your organisation than those who happen to be reading the paper that day!

3. Exposure across all New Media channels

Many companies post their vacancies on their website’s career section. Our business specialises in recruitment and our mobile-friendly company website is optimised to present your vacancy in the best possible way. We tap into the talent community by engaging on various social media platforms. We also attend sector specific networking events. Basically we are the all-seeing-eye in your industry; a well-timed sniper!

4. Professional interviewing and screening

Recruitment consultants of specialist recruitment agencies are usually better trained in interviewing and screening candidates than many line managers. It’s their profession, they do it all day!

5. Happiness guarantee

Low risk! We guarantee all our recruitment assignments and will replace within three months free of charge should you not be happy with the candidate.

6. In tune with the talent community

Our specialist recruiters are experts in determining suitability and fit as they are active members of the talent community in Cape Town, Johannesburg and even overseas and interact with candidates every day. Keep in mind our consultants are also in touch with your competitors!

7. More cost effective

When you add up the advertising costs and hours spent going through your inbox, using a South African recruitment agency is more cost effective than undertaking your own recruitment.

8. Maintain confidentiality

Don’t give away your competitive edge! By advertising vacancies on South African networks and job boards, you offer your competitors insight into your company’s direction and success. You can keep all this information fully confidential by using a recruitment consultancy.

9. Tap into our industry expertise

Recruitment consultancies are not only recruiters, they can also offer support and advice on salaries, market trends and availability.

10. Motivation to succeed

You only pay our fee, if we succeed in placing a suitable candidate. This means we will do everything to find the perfect match for you.

With offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg as well as overseas we are in a privileged position to find and recruit unique skill sets for companies in South Africa.
